Lonzo Ball had a big (Baller) performance Saturday night against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Los Angeles Lakers rookie became the youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double after grabbing his 10th rebound early on in the fourth quarter to go with his 13 points and 11 assists, at the time.

Ball is 20 years and 15 days old, beating the previous record held by Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James - who was five days older.

In his team's 98-90 loss at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, Ball totaled 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting, 12 rebounds, 13 assists, three steals, and three blocks in 38 minutes of action.

Ball could have passed James much sooner, but fell short of doing so on multiple occasions. Ball notched a 29-11-9 line in just the second game of his career against the Phoenix Suns on Oct. 20, and just recently had 10 points, eight boards, and eight dimes in a losing effort to the Washington Wizards on Nov. 9.
