Dunks and lobs
Luka Doncic was quiet in his first All-Star appearance. Kawhi Leonard had the hot hand for Team LeBron, and they were smartly feeding him the ball. Doncic only took two shots in the first quarter.
That did not stop him from putting on a show, though. Luka found LeBron for a slam early on. Fans can check out the play below.
Everyone knows the All-Star game is about dunks and 3-pointers. Both teams are trying to put on a show. Doncic said after the Mavericks win over the Kings in the final game before the break that he would not be dunking. He proved himself wrong early in Sunday’s game. See the jam here.
Doncic also threw this alley-oop to Ben Simmons in the first quarter.
The 20-year-old appeared to be having a ton of fun, but it was a quiet statistical first half. He had two points and four assists.
Luka Doncic opened up a bit in the third quarter. He sank two step back 3-pointers.
The Mavericks star did not play in the fourth quarter. Team LeBron decided to play Chris Paul with the other four starters in what turned into a fiery period. Luka finished with eight points, one rebound, four assists, and one steal in 18 minutes. He was three of six from the field in his first All-Star game.
Luka Doncic will be back leading the Dallas Mavericks as they travel to Orlando to face the Magic on Feb. 21. Fans should tune in for what should be an exciting game and fun stretch run of the season.
