Crazy Triple Double Numbers 

Post#1 » by William Hung » Sat Nov 7, 2009 8:04 am

- Jason Kidd is 3rd all-time with 103 triple doubles. An incredible 20 more times, he's grabbed 10+ rebounds and dished out 10+ assists but missed a triple-double by scoring fewer than 10 points. 35 times, Kidd has scored 10+ points, dished out 10+ assists and grabbed exactly 9 rebounds. Another 15 times, Kidd scored 10+ points, grabbed 10+ rebounds and dished out exactly 9 assists. Pretty crazy.

- 10 times since 1986, a player has recorded a triple-double off the bench, including Detlef Schrempf accomplishing the feat 3 times.

- On November 6, 1987 the Nuggets won a laugher against the Clippers 139-93. Fat Lever started, was only needed for 25 minutes on that particular night but still managed to record a triple-double, the few minutes necessary for a triple-double since 1986.

- 26 times since 1986 has a player recorded a triple-double and played 30 minutes or less. In those 26 games, those players' teams are a perfect 26-0.

- Worst field goal percentage in a triple-double since 1986? 14.3% (1-7 FG) by Isiah Thomas in 1986. Best ever? Bo Outlaw, 100%. 10 points on 4-4 shooting and 2-4 from the line, 14 rebounds and 10 assists.

- Three times, a player has recorded a pseudo-quadruple double with points, rebounds, assists and turnovers. Charles Barkley, Jason Kidd and Fat Lever have accomplished the pseudo-feat.

- Only player since 1986 with a triple-double after turning 40? Karl Malone, 10 points, 11 boards and 10 dimes for the Lakers in 2003.

I will never truely understand how Kidd can get so many assists while never being a scoring threat. Players like Lebron earn their assists purely because of their scoring threat, which reminds me just how good of a floor general Kidd is.

Crazy court vision combined with a 3-point shot that he developed just well enough to be a threat from out there. You don't need to be a scoring threat to run a fast break, and a prime Kidd did it better than anyone I've ever seen.

Any triple doubles without notching up 10 points? As in 10+ blocks/steals? I know it'd be rare but I've seen it happen in Australia.

Nope, only 10+ rebound, 10+ assist and 10+ block/steal games have been the quadruple-doubles by Olajuwon (twice) and David Robinson.
