Philadelphia 76ers rookie Markelle Fultz finished his regular season with a flourish on Wednesday, becoming the youngest player in NBA history to notch a triple-double.

Fultz had 13 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in 25 minutes off the bench as the Sixers won their 16th straight game, 130-95, over the Milwaukee Bucks.

At 19 years and 317 days, Fultz is the first teenager to ever post a triple-double and bests Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball (20 years, 15 days), who earlier this season took over the distinction from Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James (20 years, 20 days).
