VIDEO: Dennis Smith Jr. & Mason Plumlee both Triple Double in Pistons Win

During the Detroit Pistons 129-105 win over the Toronto Raptors, both Dennis Smith Jr. and Mason Plumlee triple-doubled, which is only the 12th time in NBA history that two teammates have performed the feat in the same game. 

For Smith Jr., this is his 3rd career triple-double, as he had one in each of his first two seasons in the league while playing for the Dallas Mavericks. Smith Jr. has been thrust into the starting lineup with both rookie Killian Hayes and Delon Wright missing time due to injury, and has played reasonably well. 

After going his first 7 years in the NBA without a triple-double, this is now the second time Plumlee has achieved the feat in the month of February, as he tallied 17 points, 10 rebounds & 10 assists in a win over New Orleans on February 14th. He has always been a quality passer in the NBA, as evidenced by his career-high of 12 assists, set back in 2016-17 when he played for the Portland Trail Blazers. 

The last time the Pistons had teammates achieve triple-doubles in the same game came way back in 1964, as Donnie Butcher and Ray Scott took care of business against the New York Knicks. The most recent teammates to register a triple-double in the same game are Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler, who took care of the feat for the 2nd time as teammates just a few weeks ago on February 19th. 

Other notable teammates to accomplish the feat are Ja Morant/Jonas Valanciunas (Memphis Grizzlies), Vince Carter/Jason Kidd (New Jersey Nets), Michael Jordan/Scottie Pippin (Chicago Bulls) as well as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar/Magic Johnson (LA Lakers).
