There have been 12 triple doubles in the NBA so far this season. Three of them belong to Lance Stephenson. Our man dropped 12, 10 and 10 on the Celtics in 35 minutes last night.
Nobody else—not LeBron James, not KD, not anybody—has more than one triple double. We’re about a third of the way through the season, which puts Lance on pace for nine; no one’s done that since ’07-’08.
Still don’t think he’s special? Lance is averaging 6.7 rebounds and 5.1 assists—only LeBron has that many in both cateogries. Get your ballots out, kids.
Okay, we aren’t gonna hype it up too much. At this point, we don’t even need to. Besides, we still got at least six more to go.
