Triple Double is when an NBA player achieves double digits in three different statistical categories in a game.
In January 2018 James Harden was the first player in NBA history to have a 60 point triple double.
James Harden recorded: 60 Points, 11 Assists, 10 Rebounds
Triple doubles can also be counted with Steals and Blocks. In 1987 Hakeem Olajuwon recorded a 38 point triple double.
Hakeem Olajuwon recorded: 38 Points, 12 Blocks, 17 Rebounds
You can see from this example, Hakeem recorded a triple double with double digits blocks.
On this same night Hakeem also had 7 Steals and 6 Assists making it very close to a quintuple double.
