Only two games into the Nuggets' season, and things are already strange.

They lose to the weakened Jazz one night, which served as an eye-opening outcome on a busy Wednesday night.

Nikola Jokic's triple-double helped them defeat the Warriors, the reigning champions, in the following game while Jamal Murray sat out.

Every team experiences this peculiarity over the course of a season

But all of that for Denver in the first week? Okay, then.

Here are five takeaways from the Nuggets’ 128-123 win over the Warriors on Friday

Michael Malone, coach of the Nuggets, gushed, "His IQ is just off the charts."

In addition to guaranteeing the victory, it was also his 10th assist of the game, completing the triple-double.

okic is currently one triple short of matching Wilt Chamberlain's record for the most by a centre in a career, but this needs some clarification

And if he wins the MVP award for a third time in a row, that would put him in the same league as Larry Bird.
