    Here’s a Stat I Never Would Have Guessed

    I saw on the trailer that Kawhi Leonard had a career-high 8 assists last night.

    Meaning he’s never recorded a triple-double.

    That is interesting. He does sit out every other game, so that drastically decreases his attempts at recording a triple double.

    Leonard is a good rebounder and a willing passer, so I am not shocked he hasn't had a triple-double, but am shocked that was his career high assist total.

    Can one component of a triple double be blocks, instead of assists?

    Yes. And steals.

    Which means you can have a quadruple double (done 4 times in the NBA) and a quintuple double (which has never been done)
