According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Jokic is the 10th player in NBA history with a 30-20-10 triple-double, and only the second in the past 35 years to have such a triple-double in a win. DeMarcus Cousins is the other player. 

Jokic had the stellar night against one of the league's best defenders in Rudy Gobert. He was 14-of-24 from the field, including 13-of-14 when Gobert was guarding him, and 2-for-4 at the free throw line. Of his 21 boards, six were on the offensive end.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, Jokic joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as the only players in NBA history with a 30-20-10 stat line on the road before turning 25.
