The fact that this record came from a starting center is something NBA fans will be talking about for a long, long time.
It's always impressive when a point guard grabs 10 rebounds, but when a big man dishes out 12 assists in the first half en route to a triple-double, well, it's something we've never seen.
Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic has been going OFF against the Milwaukee Bucks and recorded the fastest triple-double in NBA history. See if you can keep up:

There have been some greats to step foot on the court and notch their fair share of triple-doubles, but Jokic just created a category for himself. Russell Westbrook and Oscar Robertson both recorded over 40 of these during the course of a season and neither could do that.
The Joker really whipped out his best hand on Thursday night.

Oh, don't worry, NBA fans. He's still going.
Tune back in later tonight to see if he got triple-digits in any of these categories.
