The triple-double record he broke, by the way, was previously held by LeBron James. The closest he got to this mark was almost a month ago on October 20, when he shot 44% with 29 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists in his second National Basketball Association game.
Ball reached the milestone with 11:29 remaining in the fourth quarter, with his rebound of a missed Bucks shot being the rookie's 10th of the night. For the Raptors, DeMar DeRozan (24.7 points per game) is a threat every time down court, but backcourt mate Kyle Lowry is scoring at a 12.9, roughly half his 22.4 average from last season.
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 triple-doubles with 107, behind only Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson.

Ball started the season shooting horrendously, but the early makes hinted at a special Saturday night brewing in the beer capital of America for the former UCLA Bruin. "The great ones do", Johnson said after Ball won the MVP award and led the Lakers to the Summer League crown in July. Just like me, when I got here, there was pressure. I was the No. 1 pick [in 1979].
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. "He just said be ready to play", Lonzo Ball said.
