Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball recorded the first triple-double of his career during a road game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Ball became the youngest player (20 years and 15 days) in NBA history to record a triple-double.

The record was previously set by LeBron James, who put together his first professional triple-double performance during the 2004-05 season at 20 years and 20 days.

While Lakers did lose to the Bucks 98-90, Ball finished the night with 19 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds. He also had three steals and three blocks.

Triple-double but single focus: “It don’t matter to me to be honest. I just wanted to win tonight.”
