Nikola Jokic notched the 50th triple-double of his career last night, getting 37 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds as his Denver Nuggets beat the Milwaukee Bucks 128-97.

With the accomplishment, he becomes only the second center to get 50 career triple-doubles, joining NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain, who had 78. He also is just the ninth player ever to get 50 triple-doubles.


Lebron James To Miss Game Tonight

The Los Angeles Lakers’ Lebron James will miss his first game of the season tonight when he sits out the Lakers’ road game against the Sacramento Kings, their last before the National Basketball Association All-Star break.
James has a left ankle sprain, and the Lakers said he’ll get treatment while he remains in L.A. James will be playing in the All-Star Game in Atlanta this weekend, the 17th straight of his career.
