Hoosiers in the NBA: Victor Oladipo has historic night, almost gets Triple-Double

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - FEBRUARY 11: Victor Oladipo /

On Sunday night, Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo had a historic stat-line, including almost notching a triple double.

Since Victor Oladipo was traded to the Indiana Pacers in the offseason during a Paul George trade, it seems as if he has been playing better than ever. Maybe being back in his home-state has something to do with that. Whatever it is, Pacers fans have to be happy seeing Oladipo play at an All-Star level. He continued that excellent play on Sunday night as he came away with a historic stat-line, and almost finishing with a triple double. He also appears to be getting ready for the dunk contest.

More from Hoosier State of Mind

Everybody who plays the Knicks this season seems to have had either a career game, or a line that not many have seen in their lifetime. On Sunday night, Victor Oladipo continued that trend as he became the 18th player in NBA history to secure a 30-8-9-6 stat line. That would be 30 points, 8 rebounds, 9 assists, and 6 steals. The last player to have that line was only a month ago, as The Chosen One, Lebron James matched it in a victory over the Orlando Magic. Before that the last to achieve the feat was James Harden over 4 years ago.

If you are a dedicated Hoosier fan, then you love seeing one of the most beloved players in program history succeeding at such a high level. Oladipo’s play this season has been rewarded, as he was selected to participate in the 2018 All-Star game, his first ever selection for the prized game. During that contest, Oladipo will be playing on Team Lebron.
