New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler has a chance to accomplish something that no NBA player has done in nearly 10 years.
The All-Star looks to grab 20 rebounds for a fourth straight contest Wednesday night when his visiting Knicks try to defeat the Washington Wizards for the 11th meeting in a row.
Chandler has grabbed exactly 20 rebounds in three straight games to tie the franchise record set by Hall of Famer Willis Reed in December 1969. Before this stretch, Chandler hadn't had that many boards in one game since 2008.
"That's what I expect," coach Mike Woodson said. "He can't tease me. He's done it three straight games, so I'm expecting it the fourth game."
Three players have produced eight streaks with at least four consecutive 20-rebound efforts since 1985-86. Dennis Rodman did it five times, Kevin Willis did it twice and Ben Wallace was the last to accomplish the feat for Detroit from March 12-20, 2003, with five straight such contests.
