Domantas Sabonis sets new RECORD for double-doubles in NBA

Domantas Sabonis now holds the record for the longest streak of double-doubles in a single season in NBA history since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976-77, surpassing Kevin Love.

In the third quarter of Monday’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Sabonis totaled 11 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists, extending his streak to 54 games.

Love had set the previous record (53) in the 2010-11 season with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The only other players to achieve such a streak or longer duration were before the 1976 merger. The eleven previous instances were by Wilt Chamberlain (6 times), Walt Bellamy (1), Elgin Baylor (1) and Elvin Hayes (2):

  • Wilt Chamberlin (1966-67): 81
  • Wilt Chamberlin (1963-64): 80
  • Wilt Chamberlin (1961-62): 80
  • Walt Bellamy (1961-62): 79
  • Wilt Chamberlin (1960-61): 79
  • Elgin Baylor (1960-61): 70
  • Wilt Chamberlin (1967-68): 66
  • Elvin Hayes (1968-69): 60
  • Wilt Chamberlin (1959-60): 56
  • Elvin Hayes (1973-74): 55
  • Domantas Sabonis (2023-24): 54
  • Kevin Love (2010-11): 53

This is not the first record Domantas Sabonis has broken in his short tenure with the Sacramento Kings. Last season, with a fractured right thumb, the Kings center ended the year with the most triple-doubles (14) and the most double-doubles (65) in a single season in the Sacramento era. Let’s see how many double-doubles Domantas Sabonis can achieve.
