Marcus Camby scores the fastest triple-double ever?
March 16, 2008.
A lot of happy Denver fans on this Sunday evening after their hometown Nuggets turned back the clock (literally going back to the 80's Doug Moe era) and obliterated the hapless Seattle Supersonics en route to a 168-116 win over Seattle on Sunday.
Everyone has already commented about this game--from the Nuggets balanced scoring (an NBA record 49 fast-break points) to the numbing 84 first-half Nuggets points.
But in my mind, the real story here is Marcus Camby.
After the first 12 minutes of play, Camby already had a 7 point, 9 rebound, and 3 assists.
14 minutes and 35 seconds worth of game time later (he approximately played 26.35 minutes), Camby recorded his second triple-double of the season with 13 points, 15 rebounds, and a career high 10 assists (throw in his 4 blocks for good measure).
Wikipedia.org says this ties him as the fastest ever to amass a triple-double in 27 minutes.
With 26.35 minutes, he should rank first on that list.
