On this day in 1991, the San Antonio Spurs’ David Robinson produced 43 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 blocks in a 117-111 win over the Magic. Since the NBA began tracking blocks in 1973-74, Robinson is the only player to record at least 40 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 blocks in a game. He also achieved the feat on Nov. 9, 1993 (43 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 blocks).
Robinson made 14 of his 21 shots from the field (66.7%) and all 15 of his free throw attempts. Robinson is the only player in NBA history to record a 40-point triple-double while making at least 15 free throws without a miss.
