Has there ever been a recorded quadruple double in the nba? I would think it would have happened at least once, but not sure...

oh, not including a 10+ turnover stat, by the way. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

Olajuwan did it a few times with points, boards, assists, and blocks, I believe.

Duncan damn near got one last year in the finals; I think he had a triple double and 8 blocks, something like that. That was the closest I've ever seen someone get to a quadruple double.

I think it's been done a few times, but not many.

I'm pretty sure that Wilt recorded numerous quad-doubles in the season of 67-68, when he averaged 24.3 pts, 23.8 rbs and 8.6 ast, but blocks weren't recorded. In recent times, only 4 players (http://home.swbell.net/hartley4/quads.htm) did it.

Tim Duncan's game against NJ to close out the Finals:

Points - 21
Rebounds - 20
Assist - 10
Blocks - 8

Not quite a quadruple double, but a damn fine line in an important game.

David Robinson did it in somewhere in the mid-90's. With Points, Rebounds, Assists, and blocks

robinson did it twice i believe...

the next guy to get one will either be duncan or kirilenko. AK could get a quintuple double!

Actually he only did it once. Olajuwon almost did it twice, but he was 1 assist shy.
You're right about AK-47, he's so versatile with his length and quickness. Just needs to add some more strength to those bones. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

It was either Robinson or TheDream that notched a quad-double only to see the league review the game and change the scoring on one of the plays. So, the quad-double was lost. However, they promptly came back within a short period of time and posted a legitimate quad-double.

Is it possible to get a "pentuple-double"? That would be points, rebounds, blocks, steals and assists.

On the first night of the 1974-75 season Nate Thurmond gave the Bulls everything they had hoped for-and then some. Making his Bulls debut against the Atlanta Hawks on October 18, 1974, Thurmond scored 22 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, dished for 13 assists, and blocked 12 shots. It was the first quadruple-double in NBA history, a feat that would only be matched three times in the next two decades.
------------------------According to Harvey Pollack's 1996/97 NBA Statistical Yearbook, there have been four quadruple doubles in NBA history.

Nate Thurmond, Chicago v. Atlanta 10/18/74
22 pts, 14 reb, 13 ass, 12 bks.

Alvin Robertson, San Antonio v. Phoenix 2/18/86
20 pts, 11 reb, 10 ass, 10 stls.

Hakeem Olajuwon, Houston v. Milwaukee 3/29/90
18 pts, 16 reb, 10 ass, 11 bks.

David Robinson, San Antonio v. Detroit 2/17/94
34 pts, 10 reb, 10 ass, 10 bks.

Rebounds were not tabulated until the 1950-51 season and blocks were not tabulated until the 1973-74 season, so some great performances may not have been recorded.

Oscar Robertson averaged 12.5 rebounds, 11.4 assists, and 30.8 points in his second season in the NBA, 1961-62.

Yes Alvin Robertson did it. He's listed right under Nate Thurmond in my last post.
