#NBATogetherLive: Nikola Jokic's first-half triple-double vs. Milwaukee Bucks in 2018

On February 15, 2018, Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic wasted no time filling up the stat sheet, recording the fastest triple-double in NBA history, with a dominant display against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Jokic achieved the feat in 14 minutes and 33 seconds of action, easily beating Jim Tucker's previous record of 17 minutes from 1955, finishing the half with 16 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists

"I just started playing well and making shots," Jokic said. "I didn't have any extra motivation or anything like that though. I'm just playing the same way I always play. Maybe I was a little more aggressive tonight, but I'm playing the same."

The Serbian big man went on to record 30 points, 15 rebounds and a career-high 17 assists to lead the Nuggets to a 134-123 win. He shot an efficient 11-of-14 from the field, including 3-of-3 from three-point range, and 5-of-5 from the free-throw line.

Watch the game below:

Jokic's performance marked the 17th 30-15-15 triple-double in NBA history at the time, joining the likes of James Harden, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Oscar Robertson and Wilt Chamberlain.

On the other side, Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo also had a triple-double, with 36 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists for the ninth of his career, passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for most in Bucks franchise history.
