Nicolas Batum 5 by 5 (11 Pts,10 Asts,5 Rebs,5 Stls,5 Blks) Full Highlights (12/16/2012)

The 5 by 5. One of the most storied in-game statistical feats, only surpassed by the quadruple-double. Very few players have had such a great all-around game. Their names are etched upon the very stone of the NBA itself: Hakeem Olajuwon, David Robinson, Derrick Coleman, Vlade Divac, Jamaal Tinsley(!!!), Andrei Kirilenko, and Marcus Camby. Another name must now be added to that immortal list. James Naismith takes his hammer and chisel, and carefully, so carefully, carves his name, the name which will be praised by bards for centuries to come: Nicolas Batum! And next to it, his statline: 11 points, 10 assists, 5 rebounds, 5 steals, and 5 blocks. The deed done, Naismith returns to his peaceful slumber, awaiting the next day when an NBA player gets 5 of every stat. Or 10 of 4 of them.
