That’s how you bounce back from a “bad game” and respond to the haters.

In just his second career NBA game, Lonzo Ball put on a show Friday night against the Phoenix Suns.

In 37 minutes of play, Ball put up 29 points on 12-for-27 shooting, and also dished out 9 assists while grabbing 11 rebounds.

The 19-year-old rookie was extremely impressive in the win, and fell just one assist shy of becoming the youngest NBA player to ever record a triple-double. The record is currently held by LeBron James.

How long will it be until Ball gets that first triple-double? If Friday night’s performance is anything to go by, it won’t be long at all.
