Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic put up 20-5-5 for the 19th consecutive game to pass Michael Jordan for the most since the ABA/NBA merger.

Dallas Mavericks fans cannot get enough Luka Doncic. The 20-year-old continues to produce incredible stats and highlights while leading the team to victory. The Mavs are in the race for home court in the Western Conference thanks in large part to Luka’s breakout performance.

He also provides supporters with a truckload of things to cheer about in every game. Whether Doncic is drilling a deep step back three or getting to the rim to finish a crafty layup, it is certainly a treat to watch Luka ball.

It seems like Doncic is doing something historic on a near-nightly basis at this point. The Mavs dropped a game to the Sacramento Kings on Sunday where Luka fueled a massive comeback that fell just short. He also made history.

Passes MJ

Luka Doncic had 27 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists in the 110-106 loss to the Kings.  That made it 19 straight games with at least 20 points, five rebounds, and five assists. Doncic passed Michael Jordan for most such consecutive games since the ABA/NBA merger.

The NBA tweeted out a highlight video to mark the occasion.

Doncic did not break the record. That still belongs to Oscar Robertson at 29 straight games. The Mavs star is catching up fast, though.

Luka on his accomplishment

Callie Caplan shared what Doncic had to say about passing Jordan from his postgame presser.

The 20-year-old often breezes past that stat line. It is not uncommon to look down at the end of the first quarter to see Doncic with 10 points, five rebounds, and five assists. His play has been incredible this season. Hopefully, Luka keeps it up.
