Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic has 11 triple-doubles in his young career. Relive the first ten with this incredible highlight video.
Dallas Mavericks point forward Luka Doncic is on another level this season. From his 34-point season opener against the Wizards to the back-to-back triple-doubles versus the Lakers and Cavs, he has been impossible to stop. Doncic is averaging 26.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 9.5 assists, and 1.5 steals through six games.
More importantly, Luka is leading the Mavericks to victories. The team has won four of their first six games. They are a Terry Stotts challenge and a missed Dwight Howard foul away from being undefeated, though. It has been an incredible stretch conducted by the 20-year-old star.
The transformation from Luka has been astonishing. He was stellar during his rookie season, but looks noticeably better across the board in year two.
Doncic has also morphed into a walking triple-double. He has three in his first six games. The Mavs star also narrowly missed against the Blazers producing 29 points, 12 rebounds, and nine assists too.
On Nov. 1 against the Lakers, Luka earned the tenth triple-double of his young career. To celebrate, the NBA official account put out a highlight video allowing fans to relive all ten.
It did not last long. Doncic produced his 11th triple-double against the Cavaliers on Sunday.
It will be interesting to see if he can keep this up. According to Basketball-Reference, the only players in NBA history to average over 25 points, 10 rebounds, and 9.5 assists per game for an entire season are Russell Westbrook (twice) and Oscar Robertson (three). Luka would be in elite company there.
He is showing no signs of slowing down. The Mavericks should only improve too. Kristaps Porzingis is not fully back after missing 20 months because of his ACL injury. Seth Curry and Delon Wright are still finding their place on the team. It is scary to think about, but Doncic will up his game as well.
Dallas Mavericks fans should buckle up. It is going to be a wild ride this season. Luka Doncic is going to lead the team to the playoffs and produce a historic stat line along the way.
