Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic averaged a 30-point triple-double for the month of November. See how that feat places him in rare company.
The Dallas Mavericks picked up an impressive road win over the Phoenix Suns on Nov. 29. Luka Doncic dropped 42 points and 11 assists in route to a 120-113 victory. The Mavs are currently 12-6 on the season and tied for fourth in the Western Conference.
The massive performance from Doncic should not be a surprise. The 20-year-old has continued to improve from the moment he stepped on an NBA court. Luka was the EuroLeague MVP before coming to the U.S. He promptly won Rookie of the Year and has now made the leap into being an MVP candidate. Doncic is incredible.
The Dallas Mavericks played 14 games in the month of November. Luka Doncic had an unbelievable run. He averaged 32.4 points, 10.3 rebounds, 10.4 assists, 3.2 3-pointers made, and 1.2 steals in 33.8 minutes per game. Doncic shot 49.3 percent from the field and 84.0 percent on his free throws. He also led the Mavs to nine victories.
Luka Doncic became the third player in NBA history to average a 30-point triple-double for a calendar month. Here is a look at the feat courtesy of the Mavs PR.
Oscar Robertson is in the Hall of Fame and Russell Westbrook is headed there after his retirement. For Luka to join them is an astonishing accomplishment. Nobody expected this from the 20-year-old star.
Doncic makes NBA history on a nightly basis now. Where can he go next? If Luka keeps this up, he will get serious consideration for the MVP award as a 20-year-old. The Dallas Mavericks should also be in the thick of the playoff race.
The team could improve significantly too. Kristaps Porzingis is still finding his form on the Mavs. Dallas has the assets to improve their roster via trade. The supporting cast could produce more. Fans know it is going to be an exciting season for the Mavericks, so keep your sights locked on the team.
