Jokic is HISTORY! A triple double like that had NEVER been seen in the NBA Finals.

Legendary Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic continues to make history in his recent performance in Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat.

The Nuggets did eviscerate Miami on their home court after a full 19 years and it was so bad that fans left the court before the buzzer sounded:

It was a team victory, with Jamal Murray’s triple-double with 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists and the Nuggets’ unlikely hero was rookie Christian Braun, who scored 15 points on 7-8 shooting off the bench, but the ball of the game undoubtedly goes to Nikola Jokic. After Jokic’s historic start to the game, he finished with a monster NBA Finals statistic: 32 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists. In fact, his 30-20-10 mark is the first ever in NBA Finals history, according to Justin Kubatko, creator of Basketball Reference.

Fun fact: Nikola Jokic is also the player with the most triple-doubles of 30 points and 20 rebounds in NBA playoff history with three other phenoms.

The Miami Heat will leave Game 3 with many more questions than answers as they head into Game 4 down 2-1 against the Denver Nuggets.
