10 years to the day later, former Celtic forward Antoine Walker scored his own triple-double – also in a loss – in a game against the Indiana Pacers that Boston dropped 104 – 91.

Employee No. 8 logged 16 points, 10 boards, and 12 assists in a solid night of shooting.

Walker hit 6-of-15 overall and a sizzling 3-of-5 from deep, not enough to push his Celtics over the edge but enough to get a nod from the history books.
