Opening Night Stars
The 2014-2015 NBA season is starting today with new expectations for almost every team. From 90s to 2001, ten to fifteen opening night games have been played; but starting with 2002, number of opening night games reduced to two to five games range. (Three games will be played tonight.)
Only five players recorded a triple double on opening nights. In last 16 years, only two triple doubles have been achieved and those performed by Gary Payton and Jason Kidd (which were happened on the same day! 31-Oct-2000).
On the opening night of 1996-97 season, Clyde Drexler almost achieved a quadruple-double. (He missed it with just a single assist!)
Here are the full list of triple doubles and scoring leaders in opening nights:
