(CNN Philippines) — Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball made history after becoming the youngest player in National Basketball Association (NBA) history to post a triple-double in a 98-86 loss against the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday morning (Philippine Time) at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee.

The much-talked about rookie narrowly edged out the record previously held by LeBron James, who posted his own triple-double at the tender age of 20 years and 20 days old in the 2004-05 season.

Ball registered his triple-double at 20 years and 15 days old.

The Laker rookie finished the game with 17 points, 12 assists, 12 rebounds, three steals, and two blocks for the purple and gold.

It has been an up and down season for the Lakers, who currently hold a 5-8 win-loss slate after the loss to the Bucks.

The Lakers look to get back on the winning trail when they challenge the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday morning (Philippine Time) at the Talking Stick Resorts Arena.
