Sabonis Achieves NBA Milestone with Double-Double in Kings-76ers Game

NBA center Domantas Sabonis has made history with a double-double in a game against the Philadelphia 76ers at Golden 1 Center. Despite not being an All-Star, Sabonis has the longest double-double streak since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976-77, having recorded his 54th consecutive double-double on Monday and his 67th of the current NBA season.

Despite not being an All-Star, Sabonis leads the league in triple-doubles, double-doubles, and rebounds this season. He averages 13.7 rebounds per game and has tied Kevin Love’s impressive record of 53 games with his recent win over the Orlando Magic. Only four players in NBA history have longer streaks than Sabonis, including legends like Wilt Chamberlain, Elvin Hayes, Elgin Baylor, and Walt Bellamy.

Sabonis has played in all 71 of Sacramento’s games this season and is on track to extend his streak to 65 games. This would rank him ninth in the all-time list behind Chamberlain, Bellamy, and Baylor. If he maintains his exceptional performance on the court throughout the season, Sabonis could join Chamberlain as one of only two players in NBA history to average 20 points, 13 rebounds, and 8 assists for an entire season.
