Nikola Jokic registered a triple-double with 30 points, 12 rebounds, and ten assists, he made big plays in crunch time and the Denver Nuggets got the 121-113 overtime win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Serb big man dominated overtime scoring 13 points in the fourth quarter and the extra time, while Michael Porter junior also had a great game with 37 points, a new career-high for him. Monte Morris and Paul Millsap added 17 points each, however with the guard duo of Jamal Murray and Gary Harris missing, while small Will Barton also is injured, Jokic and his passing ability stole the show once more.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with 24 points and Chris Paul with 23 tried their best for the losing side, while Italian Danilo Gallinari scored 20 points for OKC. Τhe Thunder were also missing German point guard Dennis Schroder who left Orlando in order to be near his wife for the birth of their second child.
