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

Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis made NBA 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.

Sabonis leads the league in triple-doubles, double-doubles, and rebounds this season, averaging 13.7 rebounds per game. His impressive performance in Sacramento’s recent win over the Orlando Magic tied Kevin Love’s 53-game streak from 2010-11. Only four players in NBA history have longer streaks than Sabonis, including legends like Wilt Chamberlain, Elvin Hayes, Elgin Baylor, and Walt Bellamy.

Despite not being an All-Star, Sabonis continues to impress with his consistent double-double performances. He has played in all 71 of Sacramento’s games this season and has a chance to extend his streak to 65 games, ranking him ninth in the all-time list behind Chamberlain, Bellamy, and Baylor. Sabonis is on track to join Chamberlain as the only players in NBA history to average 20 points, 13 rebounds, and 8 assists for an entire season, showcasing his exceptional skills and impact on the court.
