NBA 2020-21: Through four games, the Denver Nuggets are 1-3 but their All-Star center Nikola Jokic is off to an MVP-level start averaging 24.5 points, 13.5 assists, and 11.8 rebounds on 62.5% shooting from the field.
That’s three triple-doubles in the first four games of the 2020-21 season for Nikola Jokic.
With his most recent one in Sacramento where he finished with 26 points, 12 assists, and 11 rebounds – the 44th triple-double of his career – the Serbian center passed Fat Lever for the most in Denver Nuggets franchise history and 9th on the league’s all-time leaderboard.

Through four games, he’s averaging stellar numbers of 24.5 points, 13.5 assists, and 11.8 rebounds. In fact, he’s just been one rebound shy of recording a triple-double in all of the four games.
However, despite his spectacular start, Denver – last year’s Conference Finalists – are only 1-3 in their first four games.
“We are not focused,” Jokic said after the road loss in Sacramento. The Nuggets’ lone win of the season came against a shorthanded Houston Rockets squad where Jokic dished out a career-high 18 assists.
