Denver Nuggets All-Star center Nikola Jokic certainly has a knack for getting things done differently than everyone else. Despite the 7'1" Serbian only having seven dunks this season, he's still finding ways to dominate the game from the ground level.


In fact, Jokic has 11 triple-doubles this season, which gives him more of those than dunks. Given how tall he is, it's absolutely ridiculous to even fathom this, but those 11 triple-doubles are the second most in the NBA this season, trailing only Russell Westbrook's 23

The Nuggets have no choice but to be thrilled with their investment in The Joker, as they are currently the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference, three games behind the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors. 


Jokic is averaging 21.6 points, 10.6 rebounds, 7.1 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 steals per game this season. 

Jokic has five triple-doubles over the last nine games and he'll be going for another one at home tonight against the Sacramento Kings. According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the Nuggets are eight-point favorites with the moneyline odds set at (-340).
