Sabonis Achieves Double-Double in Kings-76ers Game, Making NBA History

Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis has made history in the NBA with a double-double in a game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Despite not being selected for the All-Star game, Sabonis achieved a significant milestone in the league by securing his 54th consecutive double-double during the third quarter of the game against the 76ers. This achievement broke a record since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976-77.

The 27-year-old is leading the league in triple-doubles, double-doubles, and rebounds this season, with an average of 13.7 rebounds per game. In fact, he tied Kevin Love’s 53-game double-double streak from the 2010-11 season during a previous game against Orlando Magic. Only four players in NBA history have longer streaks than Sabonis, including Wilt Chamberlain, Elvin Hayes, Elgin Baylor, and Walt Bellamy.

Sabonis has played in all 71 of Sacramento’s games this season and has an impressive set of statistics that place him among some of the top players in history. He has averaged 20 points on 60.8 percent shooting, which is on track to join Wilt Chamberlain as one of only two players to achieve a 20/13/8 average for an entire season. With such remarkable performance this season, it is clear that Sabonis is deserving of recognition beyond just being named to the All-Star team.
