Will we ever see a Quintuple-double in the NBA?

This woman is the only basketball player ever who has recorded a Quintuple-Double:

The only known quintuple-double has occurred at the girls' high school level when Tamika Catchings of Duncanville High School (Duncanville, Texas) recorded 25 points, 18 rebounds, 11 assists, 10 steals and 10 blocks in 1997. Making the feat even more impressive is the fact that high school games are played with 8-minute quarters—20% less playing time than a FIBA, NCAA, or WNBA game, and a third less than an NBA game.


My question is: Will it ever happen in NBA? I think the only guy that could that is LeBron. Btw Hakeem was close vs Warriors in 1990, when he had: 29 points, 18 rebounds, 10 assists, 5 steals, 11 blocks. But couldnt do it tho.

no way, today's league adjusts so quickly it would be near impossible. opponent would send different looks to box you out, different ball handler if they keep losing the ball to you, etc.

as stated, maybe if it was a triple OT or something.

You'd have to have a guy who is awesome at triple doubles (say, the top 3 guys) play in a quadruple overtime and be absolutely on point during that game.

So, not very likely.

Lebron with multiple overtimes is probably the only one capable of this

Dwight Howard on a day where his teammates dont suck could potentially do it.

Lebron MIGHT with a good blocking night but even then, the 10 steals is a reach. I dont think anyone in the NBA has the ability to do this at a professional level.

Forget everything else. I'm wondering if an NBA player has ever come close to getting 10 steals and 10 blocks in a game. I doubt it.

There are only 13 games of 10+ steals by a single player since the 85-86 season... four of them by Alvin Robertson (coincidentally, the last player to average 3+ spg).

I don't see it happening any time soon.

I don't know if we'll ever see another quadruple-double. It's been 17 years since the last one.

Has any player EVER put up 10 steals and 10 blocks in the same game?

Andrei Kirilenko back in the day used to be my pick for a current guy to be able to come closest to doing that. Now, ehhh, not so much. LeBron is probably the closest I can think of for someone that would be capable to come as close as possible to that.

From 85-86, the most blocks someone has had with a 10+-steal game has been 2.

Brandon Roy had 10 steals and 2 blocks, as did Jordan. Kendall Gill had 11 steals and 2 blocks.

The most steals someone has had with a 10+-block game in that same time frame is 7. Hakeem had a 38/17/6 game with 12 blocks and 7 steals in the 87-88 season.

Steals is what really makes this highly improbable. That's really tough.

Bigger players can get to 10 blocks though on a good night with the right matchup(s) and basically a case of being at the right place at the right time a lot.


You'd pretty much need a big man with great vision and reflexes who also gets/holds the ball a lot. Then add in a large amount of luck.

I think Hakeem's 38/18/12/7/6 is the closest thing it would ever been.

i wonder what the ball would call Hakeem if it felt Dwight was handsy. Molesty?

If Shaq didn't do it, I really can't imagine anyone else do it.
