NBA Center Domantas Sabonis: The Unassuming Double-Double Machine Making History

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

NBA center Domantas Sabonis made history with a double-double in Sacramento’s victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. Despite not being an All-Star, Sabonis has recorded his 54th consecutive double-double this season, surpassing the record set by Kevin Love in 2010-11. Only four players in NBA history have longer streaks than Sabonis, including legends such as Wilt Chamberlain, Elvin Hayes, Elgin Baylor and Walt Bellamy.

This season, Sabonis leads the league in triple-doubles, double-doubles and rebounds. He averages an impressive 13.7 rebounds per game, and his performance against the Magic was nothing short of spectacular. In addition to his rebounding prowess, Sabonis is also an accomplished scorer and playmaker, averaging 20 points per game and recording 8 assists per game.

Sabonis has played in all 71 games this season for Sacramento and has a chance to extend his streak to 65 games, which would rank him ninth on the all-time list behind Chamberlain, Bellamy and Baylor. With only one game remaining on the schedule before the playoffs begin, it looks like Sabonis will be a force to be reckoned with come postseason time.
