NIKOLA Jokic continued his astonishing play with his second straight triple-double in leading the Denver Nuggets to a wire-to-wire romp over the Milwaukee Bucks, 110-98, at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time).
Jokic ended up with 13 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists—his fourth career triple-double all in the last 13 games—as the Nuggets cruised to victory over the Bucks, leading by as much as 31 points late in the third quarter.
The 22-year-old big man came off a 19-point, 16-rebound, 10-assist outing in a win over the Bulls, and was a calming presence for the Nuggets in the fourth quarter after the Bucks trimmed the huge lead down to 10.
Danilo Gallinari led Denver, winners of two straight games to improve to 28-33, with 22 points. Gary Harris added 14 markers, while Wilson Chandler and Will Barton each scored 13 as well.
Khris Middleton had a season-high 21 points to lead Milwaukee (26-33), who have lost two in a row, while Malcolm Brogdon chipped in 17 markers. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Matthew Dellavedova added 15 points apiece.
