Barkley roasted Green at halftime of the game on TNT, mocking him for getting another “triple-single.”
True enough, Green had just 2 points, 1 rebound and 4 assists — a triple-single. Green is averaging 8.2 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game this season, which, yes, is a triple-single. Unlike the alluring triple-double in which a player records double figures in the three stat categories (points, rebounds, assists), the triple-single requires only one figure in each category and is achieved by pretty much every player in the league.
Barkley and Green have had beef for a few years, going back to when Barkley wanted someone to punch Green for whining so much about the officials. Chuck actually used the “triple-single” line on Draymond last month, too.
