Nikola Jokic recorded another triple-double on Thursday night. It was the Denver Nuggets center's first-ever triple-double in a game against the Washington Wizards, and he did it early in the second half at Ball Arena.

Jokic, who has played on the Nuggets throughout his entire career, has now recorded a triple-double against all of the Nuggets' NBA opponents.

"It's a milestone," Jokic told Altitude reporter Vic Lombardi in his postgame on-court interview after the Nuggets' 130-110 win over the Wizards. But he didn't really seem all that excited about his final stat line (21 points on 100% field goal shooting, 19 rebounds, 15 assists). The Serbian big man isn't really in the league for the personal accomplishments. He just wants to win another championship.


The 29-year-old superstar joins a very short list of NBA players to ever reach the feat of recording a triple-double against every opponent they have faced: Jokic, LeBron James and Russell Westbrook.

According to StatMuse, Jokic's night was historic for another reason. It's the first time in over 40 seasons that a player has had 20 or more points, 15 or more assists and 15 or more rebounds paired with 100% field goal shooting.
