Triple-double and precocity record: historic Josh Giddey

Oklahoma’s loss to Dallas (95-86) on a night in which Josh giddey has left his name in the NBA record book. The Australian player has gone to 17 points, 13 rebounds, 14 assists and 4 steals in 36 minutes on the court, thus becoming the Youngest player in league history to hit a triple-double.

Giddey, thanks to her 19 years and 84 days, beats Lamelo Ball, who signed the first at 19 years and 140 days. Thanks to the increasing presence of triple-doubles in NBA statistics, this record has already been broken several times in recent seasons. For this reason, Fultz is next in the table at 19 years and 317 days, followed by Doncic (19 years and 327 days) and Lonzo Ball (20 years and 15 days).

Despite the Thunder’s record of 13 wins and 23 losses, Giddey is leaving a good taste in his mouth in his first NBA season. The young Australian averages 11 points, 7.3 rebounds and 6.4 assists, leaving performances such as this triple-double or his curious encounter against the Pelicans, in which he did not have his day facing the rim (0 points), but added 10 rebounds and 10 assists in the same way.
