National Basketball Association wrap: Lonzo Ball becomes youngest National Basketball Association player to record triple-double

In July, Johnson, now the Lakers team president, predicted that Ball would be getting multiple triple-doubles as a rookie, after seeing the No. 2 overall pick become the first rookie to get a triple-double in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Rookie Lonzo Ball became the youngest player in National Basketball Association history to record a triple-double, finishing with 19 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds, but it wasn't enough as the Los Angeles Lakers lost their third straight with a 98-90 setback to the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday night at the Bradley Center.

Though Ball's net rating was a plus-10 against the Milwaukee Bucks on the night, the Lakers lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 98-90.

By halftime, Ball already had 11 points, 10 assists and six rebounds, and a first-career triple-double seemed imminent. Ball was shooting 22.8% from the field in his five November games, and hadn't shot at least 27% in a single game.

Kevin Love had 29 points and 15 rebounds and Kyle Korver scored all 13 of his points in the fourth quarter to help Cleveland beat Dallas 111-104.

Playing the second half of a back-to-back set, the Bucks shot 41 percent through the first two quarters but finally got settled in the third, hitting 9 of 18 shots and 7 of 8 free throws.

The rebounds, though, proved a tougher challenge.

The last few days have been brutal for Ball.

So the triple-double takes some of the sting out of hard times. If Lonzo continues to become the player he's supposed to be, it might not be long before he's hosting and Thompson is trotting out his Lavar impression in front of the real deal.
