Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic had himself a game on Thursday night against the Bucks.
Jokic finished with 30 points, 17 assists and 15 rebounds, which was not only a triple-double but also the fastest triple-double in NBA history. Jokic needed just 14 minutes, 33 seconds to record his triple-double, breaking the previous record of 17 minutes set in 1955 by Jim Tucker.
