Ball, 在 19 年和 140 天大, scored 22 点数, grabbed 12 rebounds and dished out 11 助攻. Markelle Fultz was the previous record-holder when he recorded his first triple-double at 19 年和 317 天大.
The Hornets noted three other interesting tidbits that came with Ball’s triple-double.
He was the ninth player in NBA history to record a triple-double in their first 10 游戏. He was also the first Hornets player to record a triple-double since Nic Batum in March 2018 while Ball and former Hornets player Kemba Walker are the only two Charlotte rookies to record the stat line.
Charlotte selected Ball with the No 3 pick of the 2020 NBA Draft and he was expected to have a big impact on the team almost immediately. Ball skipped college basketball and played professionally in Australia before declaring for the NBA Draft.
Coming into the game against the Hawks, Ball was averaging 11.8 点数, 5.7 rebounds and 5.3 助攻. He hadn’t started a game yet in his NBA career and didn’t start against the Hawks either.
He still managed to play 31 分钟.
Devonte Graham and Terry Rozier were the starting guards.
