The Denver Nuggets are unstoppable.

Down 3-1 to the Los Angeles Clippers and everyone wrote off the Nuggets chances of coming back. However, they did just that, destroying the Clippers in Game 7 while winning a second straight series after starting down 3-1. That was an NBA record, and part of it was thanks to Nikola Jokic’s phenomenal play on Tuesday night.

Jokic, the best center in the NBA, can literally do anything on the hardwood and may be the best passer on the Nuggets. That’s no slight to their guards, but simply a recognition of Jokic’s total talent.

He finished the game with 16 points, 13 assists and a monstrous 22 rebounds in the win. Not only that, he set more records: First player to have a triple-double through only three quarters of a playoff game and first to have two separate triple-doubles in two Game 7s.

For his Herculean efforts in Game 7, Jokic earned ELITE Sportsbook’s athlete of the week award.
