Jokic’s triple-double leads Nuggets past Warriors 131-124

DENVER (AP) — Nikola Jokic had his second triple-double in as many nights with 32 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists, leading the Denver Nuggets to a 131-124 win over the short-handed Golden State Warriors on Monday night.

Jokic has recorded triple-doubles in 11 of his last 23 games, and leads the league with 18 this season. The reigning NBA MVP was coming off a 46-point, 12-rebound and 11-assist game in a 138-130 win over New Orleans on Sunday.

Monte Morris and Jeff Green added 18 points a piece for the Nuggets, who have won 11 of 13 and moved to 13 games over .500 for the first time this season. “We did a good job today in sharing the ball and finishing, scoring-wise,” Jokic said. “We ran very well in transition. It’s always nice to have 30-plus assists (as a team).”
