Jokic sets another triple-double to beat Pelicans

94

Nikola Jokic made another triple-double for the Denver Nuggets against the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday (Manila time) finishing with 105-99.

Even though there were questionable calls from the referee officials and Pelicans releasing threes after threes, Monte Morris with 20 points and Malik Beasley with 22 points also pitched in to bring another win for the team.

Jokic, as always, stepped up for his injury-ridden team, as he executed a terrific performance to bring home victory. The Serbian player, who had 24 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists, is keeping the Nuggets afloat with a record of 35 wins and 15 losses this season.
