Video: Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic throws one-handed, full court assist to Jamal Murray

Jamal Murray, Nikola Jokic

There is no doubt that Denver Nuggets  Nikola Jokic is one of the best centers in the NBA today, but what usually separates him among most of the bigs in the league is his ability to pass the ball.

Like this one.

During the third quarter of the Denver Nuggets’ game against the Los Angeles Clippers, Jokic grabbed the rebound off a Clippers miss then made an awesome full-court pass to Jamal Murray, who finished with a jam on the other end.

As of this writing, Jokic has notched another triple-double. He currently has 18 points, 12 boards, and 10 assists. They also got 22 points and five boards from Murray. The Nuggets are up 114-92 against the Clips.

The Nuggets continue to be impressive this season. Behind Jokic, they currently hold the best record in the league and are in a neck-and-neck race with the Golden State Warriors for the top spot in the Western Conference.

Jokic’s efforts put him as an early favorite to make the All-Star team. Despite only placing seventh among the West’s top vote-getters in the forward/center position, he will most likely be voted by the coaches and players to make the team.

He will be one of the first timers this year should it happen.

If he can make insane plays like this in a regular season game, imagine what he can do during the All-Star weekend.
