JOKIC'S NIGHT OF HIS CAREER! Serbian basketball superman entered the history of NBA league! (VIDEO)
Incredible game of our center against Milwaukee and the quickest triple-double ever: 30 points, 17 assists, 15 rebounds?!
America and the world were talking last night about the basketball miracle called Nikola Jokic, and they should talk, when the Center of Denver played the game of his career, for the history, for the records, who listed: 30 points (11/14 from the play, 3/3 for three), and incredible 17 assists and 15 rebounds!
This smile and statistics said it all: Bogdan was scoring against the best team in the league (VIDEO)
Denver won with the score of 134:123, and Nikola contributed the most, and not only that he wrote his name into the history of the strongest league in the world as a player who got the fastest triple-double, it took him only 15 minutes, 14:33 to be more precise, but he already had 16 points, 12 assists, and 11 rebounds at that moment!
Jokic broke the record previously held by the player Syracuse Jim Tucker in a far away 1955!
The words are superfluous, take a look at the incredible game of the Serbian Center in Milwaukee.
Nikola Jokic just set the record for fastest triple-double (16 minutes) in league history. Record was previously held by Jim Tucker of the Syracuse Nationals who recorded one in 17 minutes. Jokic got his in 15.

However, according to the ESPN statistics, Jokic's triple-double is "just" the quickest in the last 20 years, but it is certainly impressive because he left behind the players like Russell Westbrook, Lebron James, and this year's "rookie" Ben Simmons.
Nikola Jokic reached a triple-double with 1:54 left in the second quarter.

It looks like that playing in Milwaukee brings out the best in Jokic because a year ago he got his first triple-double in the same place from a total of 11, and this is his fourth from 27th, January. Also, he is the first center with 15+ assists in a single game since the icon Wilt Chamberlain.
- I just had a good game - man form Sombor was humble after the incredible game.
- I didn't have any extra motivation or anything, I was just playing a game like I always do. Perhaps I was a bit more aggressive tonight, but basically, I always play the same - he added.
Jokic was brilliant, and the entire team of Nuggets was shooting as if they were in trance, the record of the franchise was set with 24 three points scored from 40 attempts!
- Every player had his moments. Jamal Murray retreated in the third quarter, we played for him as well, Gary Harris played as well, and then Nikola, his shooting was amazing - Michael Malone couldn't find the words.
This was the 32nd win of Denver and they are tied with Portland in the sixth place of the West.
In the other game of the evening, Minnesota won against Lakers 119:111.
Nemanja Bjelica didn't score in 9 minutes he spent on the court.
