Bucks vs. Nuggets - Game Recap - February 3, 2017 - ESPN

DENVER -- Nikola Jokic has flirted with a triple-double a few times this season. He picked a good night to finally pull it off.

Jokic returned to the lineup with the first triple-double of his career, and the Denver Nuggets held off the skidding Milwaukee Bucks 121-117 on Friday.

"This will be the first of many triple-doubles," Nuggets coach Michael Malone said.

Jokic had 20 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists after missing three games with a strained left hip. He nearly had his triple-double in the first three minutes of the second half, but went without another assist until late in the fourth quarter.
