Golden State Warriors big man Draymond Green almost definitely delivered the most impressive four-point performance in the history of the NBA.

In addition to his pair of two-point field goals (on 2-of-6 shooting), Green snagged 12 rebounds, dished 10 assists, and committed 10 steals for the first triple-double not to include 10 or more points in NBA history.

Green also blocked five shots, meaning he was a point shy from joining Hakeem Olajuwon and Andrei Kirilenko as the only players to record multiple career 5x5 games (performances with five or more points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks; you can include Julius Erving if you include the one he dropped in the ABA).

"That says it all right there," said Warriors coach Steve Kerr after his team's 122-107 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. "Draymond dominated that game. ... That's as dominant of a performance as I've ever seen from somebody who scored four points."

Green said that during the game he wasn't aware he was approaching the feat.

"I knew Klay was knocking down the shots, so I knew the assists started to get up there," he said, "but I really didn't know where I was as far as rebounds and steals."
