Bucks Win Despite Ball's Triple-Double

Ball, who 20 years and 15 days old, rounded out his triple-double at the start of the fourth quarter, pulling down a rebound. James achieved the statistical milestone during the 2004-05 season, his second year in the league.

"My dad did call me but didn't give me much information", Lonzo said.

Ball did his part with 19 points, 13 assists, 12 rebounds, four blocks and three steals against only four turnovers.

He made seven of 12 shots from the field, including three of five from the three-point line.

As aptly described by ESPN, Ball put on a passing clinic while playing against a team coached by Jason Kidd, the player the Lakers rookie has drawn most comparisons with.

Tennessee coach Butch Jones reportedly fired after blowout loss
Hoke has been a head coach for 12 seasons, making stops at Ball State and San Diego State before arriving in Ann Arbor in 2011. Jones had three years remaining on his contract, which owed him $4.1 million annually through the 2020 season.

"That's going to be the headline, that he got a triple-double and I got to see it in the front row", said Bucks coach Jason Kidd, third on the all-time list with 107 triple-doubles. In a win over the Portland Trailblazers on January 19, 2005, James accounted for 27 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. "In today's National Basketball Association, a lot of point guards get buckets, but I go off my impact and what I can do to win games".

Ball is determined to follow his own judgment despite the highs and lows of his rookie season.

"Triple-doubles are going to be the norm for him".

"I didn't care about that".

Lonzo Ball and the Lakers will return to the West Coast for an away clash against the Phoenix Suns on Monday. It's not going to be scoring every night, but I'm trying to improve that. The Lakers went 0-3 during their three-game road trip of the East, courtesy losses against the Boston Celtics, Washington Wizards and the Milwaukee Bucks.
