19-year old LaMelo Ball became the youngest player in league history to record a triple-double with 22 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists on Saturday night, when the Charlotte Hornets beat the Atlanta Hawks 113-105.
Ball shot 9-of-13 from the field overall and 3-of-5 on 3-pointers in 31 minutes off the bench in Charlotte’s 113-105 win over the Atlanta Hawks.
Ball’s history-making performance came just two nights after he missed out on his first triple-double when he finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists in a win over his brother Lonzo’s New Orleans Pelicans.
The third overall pick in November’s draft, LaMelo Ball has yet to start a game so far this season for the Hornets, but he has been one of their top reserves. In 10 games, Ball is averaging 12.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 5.9 assists in 24.9 minutes.
