By finishing with 12 points, 13 rebounds, and 15 assists against the Lakers on Dec. 7th, Ben Simmons moved into third all-time on the most triple-doubles in a season by a rookie list.

Simmons joins Michael Jordan, David Robinson, Tim Hardaway, Kevin Johnson, and Lamar Odom with three.

The difference is that those guys recorded their final number through 82 games, while Simmons accomplished the feat in just 24 games.

If the Sixers’ 2016 No. 1 Draft pick can notch another one this season, he would tie Jason Kidd for the second-most triple-doubles by a rookie with four and only trail Alvan Adams, who recorded five as a Phoenix Suns rookie during the 1975-76 season.

Simmons is also close to averaging a triple-double with 18 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 7.1 assists per game.
