Sabonis makes NBA history with double-double in Kings-76ers

Domantas Sabonis, the Kings' center, may not have been an All-Star, but he now stands alone in NBA history.

The Kings center had 11 points and 10 rebounds in the third quarter of Monday's game against

the Philadelphia 76ers at Golden 1 Center, giving him the longest double-double run since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976-77.

Sabonis recorded his 54th consecutive double-double on Monday, his 67th of the 2023-24 NBA season.

This season, the 27-year-old leads the league with 24 triple-doubles, 67 double-doubles, and 13.7 rebounds per game.

Sabonis' 53rd consecutive double-double on Saturday tied Kevin Love's 53-game streak from 2010-11.

Only four NBA players have had a longer run than Sabonis: Wilt Chamberlain (7x), Elvin Hayes (2x), Elgin Baylor, and Walt Bellamy.

Sabonis, who has been in all 71 games for Sacramento this season, has the opportunity to extend his streak to 65 games, giving him the ninth-longest run in history, after only Chamberlain, Bellamy, and Baylor.

This season, Sabonis is averaging 20 points on 60.8 percent shooting, 13.7 rebounds, and 8.3 assists, putting him on track to tie Chamberlain (1967-68) as the only players to average 20/13/8 throughout a whole season.
