Thomas' performance in Games 3 and 4 made her the first player to tally a triple-double in a Finals game, the first player to get a two triple-doubles in the same Finals series, the first player to notch two triple-doubles in back to back games (regular season or playoffs), and the first player to amass four triple-doubles in a single season in WNBA History.
