Jokic surpasses LeBron for triple-doubles in NBA history

Denver Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic has reached another milestone in his NBA career. In the 134-111 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans, Jokic collected his 108th career triple-double, passing LeBron James and Jason Kidd for fourth in NBA history. Interestingly, Jokic surpassed LeBron in 813 fewer games.

Nikola Jokic ended the game against the Pels with 35 points (13/18 from two, 2/6 from three, 3/5 at the free), 14 rebounds, 12 assists, 1 steal, 1 stoppage and 2 turnovers. Not bad at all.

Now the Serbian star is behind only Russell Westbrook (198 triple-doubles), Oscar Robertson (181) and Magic Johnson (138). The goal is to finish at the end of this season on the podium, a goal that is not unattainable since the Denver Nuggets phenom almost always closes in triple-doubles when he plays a basketball game.

Let’s see if he can really pull it off. It would be yet another historic achievement for someone no one would have bet a dime on at the beginning of his NBA career. But that’s really who Jokic is, the hero you don’t expect and no one would ever bet on. And he drives us crazy for that very reason here.
