Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Narrowly misses triple-double versus Rockets

Jokic contributed 22 points (7-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 13 rebounds, eight assists and one block across 40 minutes during Monday's 125-124 loss to the Rockets.

Jokic's production and playing time were limited by foul trouble against this same Houston team Saturday, but he logged a full complement of minutes in this one and narrowly missed a triple double by a couple of helpers. He has blossomed into an elite multi-category producer since stepping into a featured role, with his 20.1 points, 11.3 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game over the last seven providing a huge boon to fantasy owners in the midst of a playoff run.
