Draymond Green was close to an incredibly rare 'quadruple-double' last night

DRAYMOND GREEN DID something unique last night.

With 12 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 steals and four points in Golden State’s win against the Memphis Grizzlies, Green had the first recorded triple-double in NBA history while scoring fewer than 10 points.

Triple-doubles are dime a dozen for the NBA’s top players — Russell Westbrook has 26 so far this season and has his sights set on Oscar Robertson’s record of 41 in a single season.

But Green’s rebounds/assists/steals line is the first of its kind.

What’s more, had he managed another three baskets, which is by no means a massive ask, he would have become just the fifth player in NBA history to record a quadruple-double and the first in 23 years.

That’s serious going.
