On Friday night, Nikola Jokic became the fourth player in NBA history to record more than 10 triple-doubles in six different seasons in the Denver Nuggets’ 121-108 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Jokic joined Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson and Russell Westbrook. The four-time All-Star finished his outing with 28 points, 15 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals in 36 minutes. He also shot 10 of 17 (58.8%) off the field and made three 3-pointers.

According to multiple NBA betting sites, Nikola Jokic is the clear favorite to win the MVP this season. Sportsbook gives Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic second-best odds to win the award.

“Nikola Jokic looks like he’s on his way to a possible third place [straight] MVP,” Cavaliers forward Kevin Love said after the game. Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell won the award three consecutive times (1961–63).

In fact, Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain accomplished the same feat (1966–68). Additionally, Larry Bird was the last player to win the award in three consecutive seasons (1984–86).
