Irregular since the start of the bubble, Luka Doncic signed an XXL performance to allow the Mavs to overcome the Kings after extra time (114-110). The numbers make you dizzy … and make history.
El Matador holds its reference match at Disney World, and how! Doncic wound was in the oven and the mill for Dallas on Tuesday night against Sacramento, wearing for much of the Middle Mavericks game, especially at the bench.
The Slovenian ends the game with 34 points, 20 rebounds (career-high) and 12 assists! A capital triple-double, helped by the respective 22 points of Kristaps Porzingis (out for 6 fouls) and Tim Hardaway Jr.
In addition to these stratospheric numbers and the victorious defense over De’Aaron Fox when the latter had the opportunity to make Sac’to win the buzzer of the last quarter, Luka signed some high class actions, including this- this :

This 30-20-10 allows Doncic to put his name in the history books, as noted by NBA Stats statistic gentleman Justin Kubatko. He is indeed the player who achieves this feat the earliest all-time:
Luka Doncic is the 11th player in NBA history to record at least 30 points, 20 rebounds, and 10 assists in a single game. He is the youngest player to reach those marks (of course).

Luka Doncic is the 11th player in history to sign at least 30 points, 20 rebounds and 10 assists in the same game. He is the youngest player to achieve this.
Note also that only 4 players have signed a 30-20-10 since the merger between NBA and ABA in 1976, almost 45 years ago …
A masterclass, quite simply, signed by a player who, it is always good to remember, is only 21 years old. With their leader in this form, the Mavs can hope to play spoilers during the playoffs, their stated objective.
Luka Doncic signed an exceptional performance, at the height of his talent. What a treat to see him like that.
