Sabonis Makes NBA History with 67th Double-Double and Breaks Love’s Record in Scoring Streak

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

Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis made history in the NBA with a double-double in a game against the Philadelphia 76ers at Golden 1 Center. Despite not being an All-Star, Sabonis has an impressive streak of consecutive double-doubles that is longer than any other player since the merger of the NBA and ABA in 1976-77. On Monday, he recorded his 54th double-double of the season and his 67th overall, breaking a record held by Kevin Love.

Sabonis is leading the league in triple-doubles, double-doubles, and rebounds this season, averaging 13.7 rebounds per game. His performance in Sacramento’s recent win over the Orlando Magic tied 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 on 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 eight assists for an entire season. His exceptional skills and impact on the court make him one of the most valuable players in the league today.
