Denver Nuggets player repeats NBA achievement Denver Nuggets player repeats NBA achievement

Nikola Jokić continues to impress with his incredible performance for the Denver Nuggets against the Dallas Mavericks, leading his team to a 125-114 victory.

The Serbian center recorded 33 points (including 2/2 three-pointers and 3/5 free throws), 14 rebounds, and 9 assists in the game. He became the first player since the 2018/19 season to have 20+ points and 10+ rebounds in six consecutive starts, joining the likes of Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers who achieved this feat back then.

Notably, Jokić is the first player in Denver Nuggets' history to achieve such a level of performance.

Jokić, selected 41st overall in the 2014 NBA Draft, has been playing for the Denver Nuggets since then. He helped lead the team to an NBA championship in the previous season and was named the Finals MVP. He has been recognized as the league's Most Valuable Player twice (in 2021 and 2022) and has also been selected to the NBA All-Star Game five times (from 2019 to 2023). At the 2016 Olympic Games, he won a silver medal with the Serbian national team, finishing second to the USA in the final.
