The term "triple double" means that you achieve double digit stats in three different categories. For example: 21 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists would be a triple-double. If you achieve double digit stats in two categories it's considered a "double double". If you achieve this goal in four categories, it's the ultra-rare "quadruple double." The statistical categories evaluated for this achievement are points, assists, rebounds, steals, and blocks.
