Love is averaging 26.4 points (2nd in NBA) and 13.3 (2nd). Only 11 players in NBA history have finished in the top 3 in both scoring and rebounding, and only two in the past 30 years (Shaquille O’Neal and Kevin Garnett).
Love is attempting to become the first player since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1975-76 to average 25+ points, 13+ rebounds and 4+ assists in a season.
Love tallied 25+ points in 11 consecutive games from Dec. 10 – 30, a new franchise record and the longest such streak in the NBA this season
Love recorded 25+ points and 8+ rebounds in 11 straight games from Dec. 10-30, the longest such regular season streak since Shaquille O’Neal recorded 13 straight from Mar. 26, 2001 to Oct. 30, 2001.
Love tallied 30 consecutive games with either 30+ points or 10+ rebounds to open the season, the longest such streak to begin a season since Bill Walton registered 30 points or 10 rebounds in each of his first 34 games of the 1976-77 season for Portland.
Love has recorded eight 25+ point, 15+ rebound, 5+ assist games this season (10 in his career). The rest of the league has four such games combined (2 – Cousins, 1 – Griffin, Howard). Love has more 25+ point, 15+ rebound, 5+ assist games this season (8) than any individual in the league has over the past 5+ seasons combined (Since Love’s debut [2008-09], 6 – Griffin)

Love is on pace to record 71 double-doubles this season, a mark which would match the franchise record (71 – Garnett, 2003-04) and fall just shy of matching most in a season since the 1985-86 season (72 – Olajuwon, 1992-93). Garnett and Olajuwon are the only players since 85-86 to tally 70+ double-doubles in a season.
Love has recorded a league-high eight games with 30+ points, 10+ rebounds and 5+ three-pointers since his rookie season; Kobe Bryant is second during that span with three such games. Love has tallied two of the leagues three such games this season (Harden).
Love had tallied six 40+ point, 10+ rebound games in his career; other than Love, only five such games have ever been recorded in franchise history (2 – Garnett, 2 – Jefferson, 1 – Campbell). Love (6) has also already tallied more 40+ point games than any other player in franchise history (4 – Garnett).
