8. Second youngest player to record a triple-double

Luka Doncic has broken some NBA records as a teenager. On Jan. 21, 2019, in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Luka recorded 18 points, 11 rebounds, and ten assists. Even though it was a loss, Doncic became a part of NBA history that forever linked him to triple-doubles.

He was 19 years and 327 days old when he recorded his first ever triple-double, just ten days older than the youngest player ever. Markelle Fultz broke that record last season.

Fans knew Luka Doncic would produce plenty of triple-doubles in his NBA career, but nobody expected so many this early in his career.

7. Four triple doubles so far

Surprise surprise! Luka’s triple doubles are back! After recording another triple-double on Feb. 25 against the LA Clippers, Luka earned his fourth NBA triple-double as a rookie.

It seems that he shares the spot with Markelle Fultz, again. Both Fultz and Doncic are the only rookies in NBA history to record a triple-double as a teenager.

Luka seems to be more impressive, though, as he has already earned four triple-doubles this season. They came against the Milwaukee Bucks, Toronto Raptors, Charlotte Hornets, and just last Monday, the Clippers.

Doncic’s unique ability to score, rebound, and be a playmaker given triple-double prowess in almost any game. Nobody predicted he would produce four as a rookie, though.
