Jusuf Nurkic entered some rarefied air Tuesday in the Portland Trail Blazers' 113-108 overtime win over the Sacramento Kings.

In putting up 24 points, 23 rebounds, seven assists, five steals, and five blocks, Nurkic became just the 12th player since 1979 to record an elusive 5x5. He's also the first player since the statistics were all recorded in 1983 to accomplish the feat with a 20-point, 20-rebound game.

Anthony Davis recorded another 5x5 on Nov. 21 of this season, the first in the NBA since Draymond Green in 2015.

Nurkic scored his 24 points Tuesday on 10 shots, and went 14-of-16 from the line.
