Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis accomplished multiple feats in Sunday’s win over the Utah Jazz, but one of them puts him in especially unique company.

Sabonis finished Sunday’s game with six assists and 11 rebounds, pushing his totals for the year to 1007 rebounds and 615 assists. The only other player to accomplish that statistic was Wilt Chamberlain. The former 76ers center did it twice, first in the 1966-67 season and then again the following year.

But that’s not all.

With his 57th consecutive double-double on the season, Domantas Sabonis now leads the NBA with 70 double-doubles over 74 games played. The Kings big man is one of four players in NBA history to post 70+ double-doubles in a single season, joining Kevin Garnett, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Moses Malone – all Hall of Fame bigs.

If only the NBA held a game, maybe in the middle of the season, to showcase the best players. Maybe in an exhibition setting.

When is the next Sacramento Kings game?

Sacramento will conclude its five-game homestand on Tuesday night when they face the Los Angeles Clippers for the fourth and final time this regular season.

After losing the first two matchups, the Kings defeated Los Angeles by a final of 113-107 at crypto.com Arena back on February 25th.
