Quadruple-Double

A quadruple-double is defined as a performance in which a player accumulates a double digit number total in four of five statistical categories-points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocked shots-in a game.This feat is extremely rare:[only four players have officially recorded a quadruple-double in National Basketball Association (NBA) history.

Only seven other players (one did it twice) have managed to finish with triple-doubles and a total of 9 in a fourth statistical category (statistical categories in which they fell short are in bold):
