Although Anthony Davis suffered a heartbreaking one-point defeat on the road Wednesday night, he managed to produce a stat line that no player had been able to muster for nearly three years.

The New Orleans Pelicans All-Star finished with 12 points, 16 rebounds, six assists, five steals, and five rejections in 41 minutes of action against the Philadelphia 76ers, becoming the first man since Draymond Green (Dec. 11, 2015) to notch a 5x5 line.

Davis is also the 10th player since 1987 to accomplish the feat, joining Green, Nicolas Batum, Andrei Kirilenko, Marcus Camby, Jamaal Tinsley, Vlade Divac, Hakeem Olajuwon, Derrick Coleman, and David Robinson.

Kirilenko and Olajuwon are the only players who've produced a 5x5 line on multiple occasions.

Davis had a chance to tie the score at 121 apiece at the charity stripe with 2.5 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, but missed his third attempt after getting fouled behind the arc by Joel Embiid.

The 25-year-old big man also scored his 10,000th career point Wednesday, becoming the eighth-youngest player in NBA history to reach that mark.
