In the 2015–16 season, Antetokounmpo developed further individually, upping his scoring average to almost 17 points per game. On November 19, he scored a then career-high 33 points in a loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. On December 12, he recorded a near triple-double with 11 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists, helping the Bucks snap the Golden State Warriors' 24 game unbeaten start to the season with a 108–95 win. On February 22, 2016, Antetokounmpo recorded his first career triple-double with 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in a 108–101 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. At 21 years old, he became the youngest Buck to record a triple-double. He would end the season with 5 triple doubles, including a 28-point and 14 assist effort in a win over the Brooklyn Nets. In doing so, Antetokounmpo set a new Bucks record for most triple doubles in a season, a feat he would equal in the 2018–19 season. However, the Bucks missed the playoffs, with a 33–49 record, 8 games worse than the previous season.
