Al Horford has been on fire for the Atlanta Hawks, averaging 26 points and 14 rebounds on .647 shooting (46-of-71) during the team’s active four-game win streak.

He was the man once again on Wednesday, leading Atlanta to a 102-91 victory over the Utah Jazz, while doing something no other Hawks player has ever done in a regulation game.

In order to provide the proper perspective on Horford making Hawks history, I’ll let the stat master Elias Sports Bureau explain:

Horford Does It All In Hawks’ Win

Al Horford recorded 34 points, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots to lead Atlanta to a 102-91 win over Utah on Wednesday. Horford became the first Hawks player with at least 30 points, 15 rebounds and five blocked shots in a regulation game. Dikembe Mutombo posted 34 points, 19 rebounds and six blocks for Atlanta on November 26, 1997, but that occurred in a double-overtime game. (The NBA began recording blocked shots in 1973.) Only four other active players have had at least one 30 point/15 rebound/5 block game in their career: Dwight Howard (six), Tim Duncan (five), Elton Brand and Kevin Garnett.
