Domantas Sabonis Sets Kings Record with 47 Consecutive Double-Doubles

‣ Domantas Sabonis broke the Sacramento Kings‘ franchise record for the most consecutive double-doubles in a single season with his 47th straight double-double, surpassing Jerry Lucas’ record set in 1967-68.

‣ The victory over the Milwaukee Bucks was the Kings’ first win against them since February 1, 2016, ending a 15-game losing streak and marking one of the team’s most complete games of the year according to De’Aaron Fox.

‣ Sabonis not only leads the NBA in double-doubles for the season with 60 but also in triple-doubles with 22, showcasing his significant contribution to the Kings’ performance and his standing in the league.


Oh boy, did you hear? Domantas Sabonis just smashed a record Tuesday night. The guy’s unstoppable, seriously. He snagged his 47th straight double-double. That’s right, in the Kings’ whopping 129-94 victory over the Bucks.

Jerry Lucas? Yeah, his record from ’67-’68 just got left in the dust. Sabonis, only 27, dazzled with 22 points, 11 rebounds, and even tossed in eight assists. Plus, a steal, because why not? His shooting was on fire, hitting 71.4% from the field.

Twitter’s all ablaze, crowning him the DOUBLE-DOUBLE KING. He’s officially the Kings’ franchise hero for consecutive double-doubles. Surpassed good ol’ Jerry Lucas. The tweet’s out there, lighting up the internet.

“Night in, night out, he’s come up big for us,” says Fox. Seems like Sabonis’ magic is almost… taken for granted? Hardly anyone outside the team bubble chats about it. But, Fox knows. We all know. It’s a Herculean feat.

Let’s talk history for a sec. DeMarcus Cousins holds the Kings’ crown with 278 double-doubles. Chris Webber’s not far behind. And there’s Sabonis, already third, in just three seasons. Mind-blowing, right?

Now, for the cherry on top. The Kings hadn’t beaten the Bucks in eight years. Eight! But that changed Tuesday. They broke a 15-game losing streak. Talk about making history.

De’Aaron Fox thinks their defense sparked the win. Even with a so-so offense, they’d have still triumphed. It was, in his words, one of their most complete games this year.

Sabonis isn’t just leading in double-doubles, by the way. He’s also the king of triple-doubles this season. Jokic is trailing behind him. The man’s a machine.

Remember last Wednesday? Against the Lakers? Sabonis joined the ranks of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with his 20-rebound triple-double. Only a few legends have achieved that.

Wilt Chamberlain leads, but Sabonis is climbing that list fast. Next up, the Kings face the Lakers again. Wonder what records will tumble this time. Sacramento’s buzzing, and so am I. Can’t wait to see what’s next.
