In the Atlanta Dream’s 99-91 overtime win over the Phoenix Mercury on Tuesday night, guard Layshia Clarendon recorded a triple-double— the sixth triple-double in WNBA history.
Clarendon racked up 15 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists against the Mercury.
Clarendon became the first player to record a triple-double in three years, almost to the day. The last WNBA player to record a triple-double was Seattle Storm’s Temeka Johnson with a 13-point, 10-rebound and 11-assist game against the New York Liberty on July 24, 2014.
The only other WNBA players to record a triple-double are Sheryl Swoopes (1999), Margo Dydek (2001), Lisa Leslie (2004) and Deanna Nolan (2005).
In her fifth season in the WNBA, Clarendon averages 3.9 rebounds and a career-high of 11.7 points and 6.9 assists per game.
Clarendon was one of three Dream players to play on the 2017 Eastern Conference WNBA All-Star Team on July 22 in Seattle.
