For all the questions about Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball's struggles shooting the basketball, the rookie has done some positive things on the court as well.

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

"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".

The Cavaliers superstar previously held the record after notching his first triple-double in January 2005 at 20 years and 20 days old.

He made seven of 12 shots from the field, including three of five from the three-point line. While that trio combined to go 19 for 36 from the floor, Los Angeles shot 41.9 percent overall while missing 16 of 22 3-point attempts and 15 of 37 free throws.

J.J. Redick scored 17 points for Philadelphia. "Then obviously you throw the free throws on top, you still have your chances but you have to play a pretty flawless game besides that".

"You can see that (he will get a lot of triple-doubles)". In fact, Ball's first year statistics (thus far) are nearly identical to that of Kidd, who averaged 11.7 points, 7.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds as a rookie for the Dallas Mavericks in 1994-95.

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

None came on the offensive end.

The loss to the Bucks puts the Lakers at 5-8 on the season, while Giannis Antetokounmpo's squad moves to 6-6. Khris Middleton added 13 points while Eric Bledsoe contributed 11 in his home debut.
