Default Re: Post your favorite player's best statline in a game

Bird had a triple double at half time in one game. (forgot which game it was).

Jordan reached the triple double after just 21 minutes of play against the Pacers, on March 13, 1989.

I don't know if there's a record for the "fastest triple double" but if there is, these two should be close to it.

Jordan has a game of 42 points, 9 rebounds, 11 assists, 8 steals against the Celtics in 1989.

On February 18, 1985, Bird had 30 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists and 9 steals vs. the Jazz at the end of the 3rd quarter. He was informed by the Celtics staff that if he gets one more steal he would record a quadruple double. Celtics was up by 22 points at the end of 3rd, so Bird thought it would be disrespectful and chose not to play in the 4th quarter.
