Carter, Kidd in the Rarest of Air

Everyone now knows that Nets' triple double combo Saturday is the first since 1989. But Elias Sports Bureau notes Vince and Jason didn't just match Michael and Scottie. They matched some of the greatest names in NBA history in the way they did it. Only Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain and Alvan Adams had triple double totals as high as Carter in points (46) and rebounds (16). Only Chamberlain, Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson had as many assists (18) and rebounds (16) as Kidd in a triple double.
