Croatian Teenager Ivica Zubac Creates Los Angeles Lakers History

Croatian teenager Ivica Zubac has written himself into the record books at legendary NBA club the Los Angeles Lakers overnight.

After a record night on Sunday by fellow Croatian and Rookie of the Year candidate Dario Šarić, last night belonged to Zubac.

The teenager became the youngest player in Lakers’ history with 25 points in a double-double.

A ‘double-double’ is the accumulation of a double-digit number total in one of five statistical categories – points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocked shots – in a game.

Last night in Denver the 19-year-old scored 25 points and made 11 rebounds, becoming the youngest player to do that in the club’s history.

Zubac though was putting his team first after his career-high night.

“The record means nothing, I scored 25 but we lost by 30 points. It does not mean anything. I would score 5 points and contribute to a win than score 25 and lose”, Zubac said.
