Another record breaking night for NBA: six triple-doubles made

It seems like NBA has days like never each game night with players making records after records.

NBA players break another record, made just four days ago, where 5 players made triple-double on the same day.

The record breaks again after six different players made triple-doubles on the same day this Wednesday.

Last time, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Julius Randle, and Domantas Sabonis made five triple-doubles.

Wednesday was a historic day for many players, where many players made their career high points, and many shined with their performance.

What made Wednesday more notable and historic was six different players dropping six triple-doubles.

This time Draymond Green, Ben Simmons, Russell Westbrook, Nikola Jokic, James Harden, and Domantas Sabonis are the six players making triple-doubles.

Golden State Warriors versatile guard Draymond Green redeemed himself with triple-doubles

Draymond Green made 2 points in the previous game against the Lakers, and the netizen was not happy with the performance of  Draymond Green.

They said it was an embarrassing performance from him. 

On Wednesday, Draymond was out there playmaking on the game against Houston Rockets.

Draymond led the warriors to win after GSW captain Steph Curry suffered after launching 3-pointer in the fourth quarter.

In Houston, Draymond Green helped the Warriors to victory with 16 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists against the Rockets.

Draymond led the warriors to win after GSW captain Steph Curry suffered after launching 3-pointer.

The Warriors won the game against the Rockets by 14 points, where they made 108 points.

Meanwhile, the Rockets gathered 94 points.

In the same game, another GSW player Jordan Poole also made impressive team-high 25 points to win.

Even though Draymond Green seems light-hearted after today’s win, he will have a tough time leading the team next game.

GSW is against tough Memphis Grizzlies, and they will be without centers James Wiseman and Eric Paschall.

They will probably be without Steph Curry due to injury.

Ben Simmons gave an impressive defensive game against the Milwaukee Bucks

Philadelphia 76ers’ Ben Simmons displayed one of his finest defensive plays to give Bucks MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo a nightmare.

Simmons shut down the two-time reigning MVP Giannis for much of the game and allowed only four points in the first half.

Besides Jokic, both Michael Porter Jr and Jamal Murray scored well in Denver’s win against Charlotte.
