Luka Doncic was in attack mode against the Wolves. He continually drove to the basket to create offense for the Dallas Mavericks. Doncic came out firing too. He scored ten points in the first quarter to go along with three rebounds, three assists, and one block.

Luka showed off his spin move during the opening frame on Monday night.


That was just the beginning. Doncic’s chemistry with Kristaps Porzingis was on display too. The 20-year-old star found KP for an alley-oop in the second quarter.


The two stars hooked up again creating an easy layup for Luka.

The Timberwolves had no answers for Doncic on Monday night. He probed into the paint at will and continued creating offense.

The bench extended the leads when Luka was resting. It was one of the team’s best performances this season. They shot 51.0 percent from the field on the night.

J.J. Barea filled in for Jalen Brunson and helped the Mavericks second unit flourish. The veteran had 12 points and eight assists in 22 minutes of action.

Dallas is now 35-23 on the season which is their most wins since 2016. Luka Doncic is the main reason, and he was again fantastic against the Timberwolves.
