Denver Nuggets' standout Nikola Jokic etched his name in NBA history.

Jokic recorded an impressive stat line of 25 points, 12 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block, shooting an extraordinary 92.3% from the field.

According to Basketball Reference's StatHead, this remarkable feat makes Jokic the first player in NBA history to achieve such a stat line while shooting at least 90% from the field.

Notably, Wilt Chamberlain had similar performances in his career, but with steals and blocks not being recorded during his time, Chamberlain doesn't appear on this exclusive list.

Speculation arises that Chamberlain might have achieved this feat at least once, but the lack of recorded steals and blocks leaves room for Jokic and Chamberlain as the likely pioneers of this exceptional line.

This isn't the first time Jokic has entered the record books alongside Chamberlain. The Nuggets star boasts several records surpassing even the legendary Chamberlain, showcasing the unparalleled dominance he has displayed since ascending to superstardom.

As the reigning Finals MVP, Jokic's consistent elevation of his game is proving pivotal for the Denver Nuggets, solidifying his status as one of the league's most extraordinary talents. (Source: Sports Illustrated)
