Another MVP level performance by Nikola Jokic.

Nikola Jokic was at it again Monday night at Ball Arena as his 28 point, 19 rebound, and nine assist performance helped lead the Denver Nuggets to a 113-107 victory over the Washington Wizards. The Nuggets are now over .500 once again with a 14-13 record, which is good for eighth place in the Western Conference.

Denver’s superstar big man’s night did end a little earlier than expected as he was ejected in the fourth quarter after being assessed a double-technical foul. Jokic was frustrated with some of the non-calls and ended up playing just 31 minutes, which may be a blessing in disguise because it gave him some much needed rest and the Nuggets had such a strong lead that the game was never really in doubt.

Jokic scored his 28 points on an extremely efficient 9-of-14 shooting from the field, 1-of-2 from beyond the arc, and 9-of-11 from the free-throw stripe. His 19 rebounds tied a season high as Jokic has now done that four different times this season .
