NBA: Josh Giddey surpassed Doncic and Ball’s achievement!

Individually, Josh Giddey certainly has reasons to be pleased, but his team lost the match, so the record beaten by the young Oklahoma City Thunder player has a very bitter-sweet taste for him. The achievement, however, cannot be questioned.

Oklahoma City Thunder is famous for the fact that he pays a lot of attention to the process of selecting players in the draft. General team manager – Sam Presti he has so many of them in his pool that he wants each of them to be an added value for the team and develop gradually within the OKC structures. Josh Giddey is the best example of the strategy chosen by the Oklahoma team. Last night, the phenomenal OKC freshman had a triple-double.

This means that Giddey is from today the youngest player in NBA history with a triple-double on his account. OKC, however, lost to Dallas Maverickswho for the first time in ten matches were able to benefit from help Doncic’s hatches – this one is after ankle rehabilitation and has already left the quarantine. The Slovene was also the youngest player with a triple-double at one time, then took the record from him LaMelo Balland now belongs to Giddey.

The Thunder player finished the game with 17 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds, so the numbers are very impressive. The Australian managed it at 19 years, 2 months and 23 days. He broke LaMelo by about 8 months. For the first year, it was the first game after a three-game pause caused by the COVID-19 protocol. – I am happy about this achievement, but I would prefer to have zero-zero-zero so that my team would win the game – he admitted after all.

In 30 games this season, Giddey averaged 10.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 6.1 assists, hitting 38.8% FG. OKC chose it with the sixth number of the last draft. There are still many elements that the young player has to work on, but it reveals a great potential.
