Nikola Jokic, the two-time MVP of the Denver Nuggets, is currently leading the NBA in three statistical categories: points, rebounds and assists. This impressive feat comes on the heels of the Nuggets' recent loss to the Sacramento Kings, in which Jokic posted a triple-double with 36 points, 13 rebounds and 14 assists.

His rebounding dominance has been evident throughout the season. He currently leads the league with 255 rebounds, six more than second-place Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers. And his rebounding power is especially noticeable on the defensive end, where he collected 190 rebounds.

However, he is also a force on the offensive glass, ranking sixth with 65 offensive rebounds.

Ahead of Antetokounmpo in points

Nikola's ability to score has also been on display this season. He currently leads the NBA with 579 points, 10 more than Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Luka Doncic from the Dallas Mavericks and Kevin Durant from the Phoenix Suns are also close with 565 and 558 points, respectively.

An incredible 196 assists since the beginning of the season

Jokic's passing skills have also been a key factor in the Nuggets' success this season.

He currently leads the league with 196 assists, seven more than Tyrese Haliburton of the Indiana Pacers. Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks is also in contention with 192 assists, while Haliburton dropped to third with 189 assists.

We have to admit to this duo behind Jokic that they made a great result, but unfortunately in the shadow of the first assistant. His all-round dominance makes him a true triple-double threat and one of the most unstoppable players in the NBA league.

His ease of play causes the amazement of NBA analysts, where it is increasingly mentioned that Jokic plays basketball because he has to not enjoy the NBA. His ability to score, rebound and pass at an elite level also makes him a nightmare for opposing defenses.

Jokic's incredible statistics must be acknowledged. Will Denver win another championship on the wings of the great Serbian? The season has just begun, the Nuggets have a long way to go and strong competition, It will be an interesting battle for the playoffs.
