Jokic scores season-high 39, Nuggets beat Hornets 123-110 Nikola Jokic's impressive numbers took a backseat to his coast-to-coast dunk. Cheered by the sellout crowd for his jam, he was also teased by his teammates. To him, the slam was a thing of beauty. "Poetry in motion," the 7-footer said. Jokic scored a season-high 39 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, reserve Paul Millsap added 18 points and the Western Conference-leading Nuggets knocked off the Charlotte Hornets 123-110 on Saturday for their 10th straight home victory. BOX SCORE: NUGGETS 123, HORNETS 110 That's two straight games where Jokic's now had a memorable dunk .

Jokic responded by not missing a beat and notching the first triple double of his career. He wouldn’t have to do it alone though, Jamal Murray and Kenneth Faried also had big nights giving the Nuggets fans a glimpse into a very bright future. The Bucks superstar, Giannis Antetokounmpo , did everything

Jamal Murray scored 23 points and Mason Plumlee added a season-high 17 points to go with 12 rebounds for the Western Conference-leading Nuggets. They're 17-3 at home.

Lou Williams led the Clippers with 19 points, and Danilo Gallinari chipped in 18 against his former team.

Jokic did a little bit of everything. The big man turned in the pass of the night when he threw a full-length strike over a defender to Murray for a dunk in the third quarter. Jokic later had a layup when he bounced the ball off the backboard to himself.

Jokic was coming off a game in Miami on Tuesday in which he had 29 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

After the final buzzer, he signed a jersey for Broncos pass rusher Von Miller, who happened to be sitting courtside. Miller also gave Jokic a Broncos jersey.
