Nikola Jokic was perfect from the field and free throw line, finishing with 26 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists as the Denver Nuggets posted their highest point total of the season in a 142-105 win over the short-handed Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday night.

Jokic was 11-for-11 from the field, hit his only 3-point try and went 3-for-3 from the line. The performance followed another near-perfect outing after he converted all 18 free throws Monday in a 120-114 win over the Golden State Warriors.

It was Jokic's third career triple-double on 100% field goal percentage -- matching Wilt Chamberlain for the most such games all-time, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He also equaled Chamberlain's shot clock-era record of twice recording a 25-point triple-double with 100% field goal shooting, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Overall, it was the 116th regular-season triple-double of Jokic's career, and that ranks fourth in NBA history and 22 behind Magic Johnson for third place. Russell Westbrook tops the list with 198, and Oscar Robertson has 181.

"It's a miss and make game," Jokic said. "Of course, sometimes you miss, sometimes you make. Today I made all of my shots. It's not going to be a lot of those nights."

Jokic went to the bench Thursday after feeding Christian Braun for a dunk with 1:31 left in the third quarter and completing his 11th triple-double of the season.

"I've never seen a triple-double before I played with him, and now I see them all the time," said second-year player Peyton Watson, who scored a season-high 20 points while starting in place of Aaron Gordon.

Gordon is out after suffering lacerations to his face and right shooting hand while being bitten by a family dog on Christmas.

Memphis played without Ja Morant, who was sidelined due to illness. Morant missed his first game since returning from a 25-game suspension at the start of the season. The Grizzlies have won all four games in which Morant has played since making his season debut Dec. 19 at New Orleans.

"Obviously they're a much different team with Ja Morant, so we caught a break with him being out tonight," Denver coach Michael Malone said. "That team was playing great basketball. I was proud of our guys, once we learned about Ja not playing right before tipoff, our guys handled their business."

Desmond Bane led Memphis with 23 points, and Marcus Smart scored 17. Memphis is 6-20 when Morant is out of the lineup.

Jamal Murray scored 20 or more points for the fourth straight game, finishing with 23 points and nine assists for Denver, which has won a season-best six in a row. Murray had 10 points in a high-scoring third quarter when the Nuggets' lead reached 32 points, before the Grizzlies cut it to 23.

"[Jokic] was 11-for-11 tonight," Malone said, as quoted in the Denver Post. "He doesn't care about that. If Jamal has got it going, he's clapping for Jamal. He takes more joy in his teammates' success [than his own], and that's the true definition of being selfless. And he lives it every day."

Denver outscored Memphis 41-35 in the third period and led by as many 38 in the fourth quarter.
