In the team’s 98-95 win over Utah, Jokic became just the ninth player in NBA history to post a 30-point/20-rebound/10-assist triple double and was just the second player in the past 44 years to register 31 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists in a game.

It’s the first time Jokic has won the award this season and the sixth time he has won it in his career.
