Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis registered his 54th consecutive double-double, breaking a tie with Kevin Love for the longest streak since the 1976-77 NBA-ABA merger, in Monday night’s 108-96 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. Wilt Chamberlain holds the all-time record with 227 straight double-doubles, per Elias Sports.

Sabonis, 27, also posted his NBA-leading 25th triple-double of the season. He finished with 11 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists to become the fifth player in NBA history with at least 25 triple-doubles in a season, joining Nikola Jokic, Russell Westbrook, Chamberlain, and Oscar Robertson.

Per multiple NBA betting sites, the Kings hold 16th-ranked odds to win the championship. Sportsbooks are showing better odds for the Golden State Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans.

“Shout out to Domas. What a job,” Kings coach Mike Brown said. “What a phenomenal, phenomenal year he’s having. Obviously, he should have been an All-Star. Obviously, he should be talked about for first, second, third All-NBA. And he should be in the MVP discussions with the way that he’s playing.”

Moses Malone holds the third and fourth spots on the all-time list for most consecutive double-doubles. The NBA Hall of Famer logged 51 straight double-doubles with the Houston Rockets in 1978-79 and 44 in a row with the 76ers in 1982-83.
