Portland Trail Blazers sixth man Evan Turner became the first NBA player in history (since starts were recorded in 1970-71) to record back-to-back triple-doubles while coming off of the bench in a win over the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday evening. Turner logged 13 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists against the Grizzlies, and had a similar performance versus the Minnesota Timberwolves with 13 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.
In other milestone news, Damian Lillard marked one too: he joined the company of Clyde Drexler in scoring at least 2,000 points in multiple seasons for the Trail Blazers.

We’ll see if Evan Turner can go for triple-double No. 3 against the Denver Nuggets this Friday.
