Dallas Mavericks: Luka Doncic drops 33 in return win over Kings
By Tyler Watts
Rest of the way
Luka Doncic came back in with 6:30 remaining in the second quarter. He was not going to be slowed down. Doncic quickly put back his own miss for two before drilling a step back three. That was just the beginning of a ten-point quarter for the Mavs star.
Luka started the second half by getting to the line. He had no fear of driving to the basket and attacking on Wednesday night. Doncic pulled out the spin move and lay in during the third quarter.
The game was getting out of hand, but Coach Carlisle wanted to give Luka more run. That forced him to switch up his substitution patterns. Doncic rested from 3:10 left in the third until 1:44. He came back and played until exiting for the final time with 6:26 remaining in the game.
It did not slow him down one bit. Luka had an eight-point fourth quarter to push his total to 33 for the game. Doncic likely would have secured another triple-double if the game was not out of reach for Sacramento.
The 20-year-old star is amazing. He had an effortless 33 points on 18 field goal attempts. Doncic is impossible to stop in his second NBA season.
