As #Cavs Darius Garland drove to the basket for the layup and watched the ball go through the net, he raised both his arms and ran down the floor with a smile across his face. He knew he had the triple-double.
On Garland’s first career triple-double night…9:36 AM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
Darius Garland last night:
✅ 11 PTS
✅ 10 REB
✅ 15 AST
Garland is the fourth player in @Cleveland Cavaliers history to record at least 10p/10r/15a in a game, and youngest to do so (21 years, 351 days).
He’s the eighth player in NBA history to record such a game before his 22nd birthday. AM

More on this storyline

Duane Rankin: Devin Booker said he tries not to think about #NBAAllStar selections as he’s 5th in 1st fan voting results for Western Conference backcourt starters (2). He added that having #NBA best record should help get “three or four guys in.” #Suns -via Twitter @DuaneRankin / January 7, 2022
