Triple doubles are rare enough. Even rarer is the air in which two team mates accomplish the feat on the same night.
So it was Saturday in Charlotte, where LeBron James (24 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists) and Lonzo Ball (16 points, 10 rebounds) took place, 10 assists), each a triple-double in the 128-100 Routers from LA over the Hornets have logged.
The Laker duo will only be the eighth set of teammates in NBA history to earn triple doubles in the same game. Jason Kidd and Vince Carter were the youngest teammates to complete the feat on April 7, 2007. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson did so in 1

Speaking of Triple Doubles: James Harden himself defeated Memphis 105-97 in Houston  (19459014), while the reigning Kia MVP finished with 32 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, and had triple doubles for the seventh time in his career
Houston's record time when Harden called all of this double-digit numbers: 31-7.
Devin Booker is back and maybe, maybe just, better times are ahead for the Phoenix Suns brand. The fourth-year guard led Phoenix to a 107-99 win over Minnesota with 28 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.
The victory brought Phoenix victories for the first time in a row – and for the first time in a row since December 29, 2017.
Oh yes, and it looks like they're acting Trevor Ariza after all.

Kyle Kuzma, who made sure that LeBron did not continue the game without addressing a flaw in his otherwise perfect beard.
No Zach LaVine. 21 down the street. Normally these two factors would have made losing the bulls a foregone conclusion.
Not this time. Finnish striker Lauri Markkanen was the comeback leader in Chicago in the second half, in which he and Kris Dunn (29 points in the second half) almost beat the entire Spurs team (31) after half-time. In the end, it was the Bulls who ended as unlikely winners of the Alamo.
Markkanen finished with 23 points his second 20-point performance in nine days – the Bulls won both games.
I'm sorry, Lance, but you do not want to use air guitars when you're celebrating.
