Joker finished the Nuggets’ 109-97 loss to the Bulls with 17 points, 12 rebounds, and 15 assists.
It took Jokic 471 games to post 60 triple-double, versus the 897 it took for Larry Legend to reach 59. He is currently just two triple-doubles behind James Harden, who surpassed Bird in November and has since posted two more for a total of 62.
