Lonzo Ball made history Saturday night, becoming the youngest player to record a triple-double.

In what was Ball's 13th game, he posted 19 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds, along with four blocks and three steals.

"It's perhaps fitting that Ball collected his first triple-double in his first game against Bucks coach Jason Kidd, who is third all-time in the department with 107, behind only Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson".

Entering the matchup against the Bucks, Ball was averaging 8.9 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game, shooting just 29.2 percent from the field, as well as 22.0 percent from downtown.

Ball, at age 20 years, 15 days, surpassed the previous record held by LeBron James, who had previously been the youngest to get a triple-double at the age of 20 years, 20 days.

"But Ball, playing in his 13th career game, got his first triple-double much quicker than Kidd, who needed 68 games to get his first", wrote Lakers insider Ohm Youngmisuk.


"We took a loss, so it don't really mean nothing". I just wanted to win tonight.

"I thought we put ourselves in a good position to get it, but it didn't happen".

The league's leading scorer Giannis Antetokounmpo had another big game, scoring 33 points to lead the Bucks (6-6). Kyle Kuzma led Los Angeles with 21 points and Julius Randle added 17.

Ball is determined to follow his own judgment despite the highs and lows of his rookie season. G Eric Bledsoe started his second consecutive game for the Bucks and finished with 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting.

Making things more hard for the Lakers were 23 turnovers, which Milwaukee converted for 17 points.

In Dallas, Kevin Love recorded his ninth double-double with 29 points and 15 rebounds as the Cavaliers defeated the Mavericks 111-104.
