A quadruple-double is a basketball term, defined as an individual performance in a game in which a player accumulates a double digit number total in any four of these categories: points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocked shots. In NBA history, there have been only four quadruple-double performances. (There have been no quintuple-double performances.) They are:
- Nate Thurmond, October 18, 1974, Chicago vs. Atlanta; 22 points, 14 rebounds, 13 assists, 12 blocks
- Alvin Robertson, February 18, 1986, San Antonio vs. Phoenix; 20 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 steals
- Hakeem Olajuwon, March 29, 1990, Houston vs. Milwaukee; 18 points, 16 rebounds, 10 assists, 11 blocks
- David Robinson, February 17, 1994, San Antonio vs. Detroit; 34 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 blocks
It should be noted that the NBA started recording both blocks and steals in the 1973-74 season, so this particular feat has only been possible since then.
