LeBron James has sung the praises of Lonzo Ball all season. The duo gave us a glimpse Saturday night of how good the Los Angeles Lakers can be when both are clicking together.

James and Ball each notched a triple-double in the Lakers' 128-100 rout of the Charlotte Hornets, the first teammates with a triple-double in the same game since Jason Kidd and Vince Carter did it for the New Jersey Nets on April 7, 2007.
