“The people that called Nikola Jokic ‘the worst MVP in history’ have been dead silent lately”: NBA Twitter reacts as the Serbian becomes only the 2nd center to record 6 triple-doubles in a month twice

In the Nuggets 116-105 win over the Pels, Nikola Jokic puts up 29 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists to record his 6th triple-double of the calendar month.

Nikola Jokic has picked up this season right where he left the previous one. Playing some of the best basketball of his career, Jokic is currently on pace to finish the 2021-2022 campaign with the highest Player Efficiency Rating in NBA/ABA history.

So far, January has been the best month for Jokic’s amid his historic season. After putting up 29 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists in Denver’s recent-most win over the Pels, Jokic now leads the league with 12 triple-double.
