Denver Nuggets star big man Nikola Jokic was out there doing everything against the defending champion Toronto Raptors Sunday evening.

Jokic finished the game with 23 points, 18 rebounds and 11 assists in a 133-118 Nuggets win.

However, it’s this one play that had fans in Mile High remembering the glory days of John Elway and Peyton Manning.

Check out Jokic as he throws a full-court pass to Gary Harris for the bucket. It might be the most perfect pass you’ll ever see on the NBA hardwood.

Jokic is known as one of the most-skilled bigs in the game. He’s proven that over and over again.

By virtue of his performance on Sunday, the center tied LeBron James for the most triple-doubles this season with 12.
