The Lakers rookie finished with an impressive tally of 19 points, 12 rebounds, 13 assists, 3 steals and 4 blocks, while shooting an improved field goal percentage.

He made seven of 12 shots from the field, including three of five from the three-point line. "In today's National Basketball Association, a lot of point guards get buckets, but I go off my impact and what I can do to win games". In a win over the Portland Trailblazers on January 19, 2005, James accounted for 27 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Kyle Kuzma led Los Angeles with 21 points and Julius Randle added 17. Included in that was Ball shooting 3-for-5 from three-point range, and he missed his lone free throw attempt of the night.

J.J. Redick scored 17 points for Philadelphia.

"You can see that (he will get a lot of triple-doubles)".

Ball completed the triple-double by getting his 10th rebound early in the fourth quarter.

"Triple-doubles are going to be the norm for him". Lonzo is going to play his game.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 33 points to lead the Bucks, who also got 16 off the bench from Malcolm Brogdon. "I thought he did a great job of playing at a pace, creating for others, constantly being the aggressor on the offensive end, keeping the defense on their heels".

NOTES: Lakers G Lonzo Ball said he spoke to his father, LaVar Ball, who told the Lakers' rookie to focus on his own work and not worry about his brother, LiAngelo, who was arrested for shoplifting along with two UCLA teammates in China. Khris Middleton added 13 points while Eric Bledsoe contributed 11 in his home debut.
