Potential NBA Draft Number overall pick Luka Doncic has scored a rare triple double in the Spanish ACB League for Real Madrid.

The 19 year Slovenian international registered 17 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in just 22 minutes against Real Betis.

Real Madrid won 104-89 on the special night for the 2017 EuroBasket winner Doncic; this is just the seventh triple double in the ACB and first in 11 years.

A triple double in European leagues is a rare thing considering games last 40 minutes and possessions are far fewer than those in the NBA.

Madrid has opened Round 32 games with the remainder of fixtures set to be played out on Saturday May 12 and Sunday May 13.

Ghana Forward Ben Bentil’s RetaBet Bilbao Basket will be in action on Sunday against Baskonia after falling 69-70 to Obradorio in the past round.

Bilbao sits in 17th place with eight wins and 23 losses this season; Bentil played 10 minutes against Obradorio registering a steal and two rebounds.
