De'Aaron Fox posts first career triple-double in blowout win over Hawks


Kings guard De'Aaron Fox reached a major milestone in Thursday's 146-115 win against the Atlanta Hawks, picking up his first career triple-double. 

Fox scored a career-high 31 points, dished out a career-high 15 assists, and grabbed 10 rebounds. The 20-year-old did it all in Atlanta, going 9 of 13 from the field -- including 3 of 4 from beyond the arc -- and 10 of 11 from the free-throw line. 

Thursday was the first game in his two-year career that Fox scored 30-plus points, and the first time he has posted 11 assists as well. The second-year pro is now averaging 19 points, 7.8 assists, and 4.6 rebounds per game.

The last second-year guards to average at least 19 points, 7.5 assists, and 4.5 rebounds per game? Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson.
