Luka Doncic is the alpha and omega of the Dallas Mavericks both on and off the court. The Slovenian returned to shine with his own light and although he could not lead the Texas franchise to victory against the Miami Heat (110-125), the former Real Madrid player was once again the offensive reference of his team.
Doncic ended the clash with 33 points, his best score of the season, after hitting 10 of the 24 shots I made (three of nine from the triple) and 10 of the 12 free throws that launched. An offensive recital that began with the new weapon in the repertoire of the Slovenian star: a triple from the logo, showing that the court is already too small for him.
It was not the only image that Doncic left in his confrontation with the Florida team. The Slovenian also showed that he is a leader from the bench and during a time-out I took advantage of Jason Kidd’s absence, who was talking to his assistants, to be in charge of giving instructions to his colleagues.
