Kevin Love registered his 52nd consecutive double-double with 16 points and 21 rebounds at the expense of the Pacers.

Despite what you may have heard or read elsewhere, that’s not an NBA record. It’s not even close. Wilt Chamberlain had separate streaks of 227, 220 and 133 consecutive games with double-doubles; those are the three longest streaks in NBA history.

The last player with a streak as long as Love’s was Elvin Hayes, who had double-doubles in 55 straight games for the Capital Bullets in 1973-74.
