The Bobcats have been around since 2004, and yet they have never had a triple-double. Not one. Not from Gerald Wallace, not from… okay, that pretty much wraps up the players who could have had a triple-double for the Bobcats. So you can see why they’ve never had one. Until last night.
Stephen Jackson, in a Bobcats romp over the Nash-less Suns, had 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists, giving the Bobcats their first triple-double player. It was tooth and nail for his last assist but he managed to get it under the buzzer and it’s a big deal for him and the Bobcats organization. The Bobcats all of a sudden are 5-5 in their last 10, with D.J. Augustin playing well and their center problems not being so profound. They’ll still need a lot more performances like last night by Jackson to get back to the playoffs again.
