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

Sabonis Breaks Double-Double Streak Record: Is He NBA’s Next Basketball Legend?

Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis made NBA history 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.

In the third quarter of the game, Sabonis secured his 54th consecutive double-double, breaking a record since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976-77. This marked his 67th double-double of the 2023-24 NBA season. 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.

Sabonis has already tied Kevin Love’s 53-game double-double streak from the 2010-11 season in a previous game against the Orlando Magic. Only four players in NBA history have longer streaks than Sabonis, including Wilt Chamberlain, Elvin Hayes, Elgin Baylor, and Walt Bellamy. With impressive statistics this season, including averaging 20 points on 60.8 percent shooting, 13.7 rebounds, and 8.3 assists, Sabonis is on track to join Chamberlain as the only players to achieve a 20/13/8 average for an entire season.

Sabonis’ performance on and off the court has earned him recognition and respect from his teammates and coaches alike. His dedication to improving his game and his passion for basketball have made him one of the most valuable players in the league today.

As he continues to play at such a high level throughout this season and beyond, Sabonis will undoubtedly cement himself as one of basketball’s greatest legends.
