It’s been a trying season for No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz.

But the 76ers rookie ended it on a high note.

The 19-year-old Fultz (13 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists) broke the NBA record for youngest player with a triple-double. That helped Philadelphia beat the Bucks, 130-95, and secure the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference – which means avoiding the Cavaliers and Raptors until the conference finals.

Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball set the triple-double-by-age record earlier this season.
