Ben Simmons joined Michael Jordan, David Robinson, Tim Hardaway, Kevin Johnson, and Lamar Odom for the third-most triple-doubles in a rookie season. just 24 games in. Lonzo Ball grabbed the feed in the corner and drove to the bucket drawing the triple-team in the paint. Despite Philly hustling back in transition and having a timeout in his pocket, Walton chose to let the Lakers play, and Ball pulled it back out, passing to a trailing Ingram on the right wing - who, realizing Ball could not have been more open, quickly kicked it to Lonzo in the far corner. After a timeout, Richaun Holmes' tying attempt at the buzzer was way off.

Ball added 10 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, four blocks and three steals without a turnover in 38 minutes of strong work running the show for L.A., which improved to 9-15 with the win.
