David Robinson has done it. Hakeem has a done it. Nate Thurmond has done it. Wilt probably did it. Shaq and Tim Duncan came close. No surprise Spencer Hawes belongs in this conversation, right?
Last night against All-Star Roy Hibbert and the Pacers, 76ers Spencer Hawes, who is having a pretty good March and coming off a season high 24 points, almost messed around and got a quadruple double while Andrew Bynum messes around with hair on the injured list. Hawes finished with 18 points, 16 rebounds, 8 assists, 7 blocks, 1 3 pointer and held Hibbert to 9 of 26 (career high in attempts) shooting. A magnificent fantasy line that is rewarding roto fantasy players that inserted the up and down center.
Not taking anything away from his great game but to be realistic the performance was far from a quadruple double. Hawes only Averages 1.4 blocks a game so going by averages he would need another 2 games to get the 3 he needed. With this game he averages 3 blocks against the Pacers this season which means he would need another game against Indiana to reach the quad goal and I’m pretty sure the next time he faces off against shoving, don’t give me water, I hide blood, Gangnam Style dancing Hibbert things will be a lot different.
