# What is the lewis structure of NO [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

I am a bit confused about the lewis structure of $\ce{NO}$ The answer from my worksheet is $\ce{N=O}$ with nitrogen having a free radical. But I drew the structure as N triple bonded to $\ce{O (:N#O:)}$ and oxygen has the free radical. I am confused as to why my answer is not the case
