Josh Giddey is now the youngest with a triple-double in the NBA by breaking LaMelo Ball's record

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City Thunder rookie guard Josh Giddey, back after missing three games while in NBA health and safety protocols, became the youngest player in league history to record a triple-double during Sunday night’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.

Giddey finished with 17 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds for his first triple-double in a 95-86 loss to the Thunder.

At 19 years, 84 days old, Giddey surpassed Charlotte Hornets point guard LaMelo Ball, who previously held the distinction at 19 years and 140 days of age.

Also returning Sunday was Mavs star Luka Doncic, who had 14 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds on his return from a 10-game absence.

Doncic played in a long left knee brace and saw just over 31 minutes in his first game in 23 days. He was happy to prepare his teammates for baskets after missing five games due to ankle pain and five more games due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
