Nikola Jokic’s 8th triple-double in Game 4 passed Wilt Chamberlain for the most in a single postseason
The Denver Nuggets came into Game 4 last night with a 3-0 series lead and a chance to sweep the Lakers. It took until the last possession of the game to determine the winner and the Nuggets came out on top. A 113-11 win gave Denver its first playoff series sweep in franchise history. No player has made more of an impact on their team in the 2023 playoffs than Nikola Jokic. His 8th triple-double in Game 4 passed Wilt Chamberlain for the most in a single postseason.
This postseason, Denver’s two-time MVP is averaging 29/13/10. With a win last night, Jokic has helped lead his team to a place the franchise has never been before. The NBA Finals. After going six games with Phoenix in the second round, Denver made quick work of the Lakers in four games.
Game 1 of the NBA Finals doesn’t start until Thursday, June 1. Miami and Boston still need to finish up their series in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Heat have a 3-0 series lead with Game 4 being played in Miami tonight.
Nikola Jokic records his 8th triple-double of the playoffs, passing Wilt Chamberlain for most in a single postseason.

The 28-year-old superstar is just entering the prime of his career and is looking to lead Denver to their first-ever NBA title.

Last night, Jokic once again found himself climbing the record books. He passed NBA Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain for the most triple-doubles in a single postseason. Jokic now has eight triple-doubles in the 2023 playoffs.
