Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic shows off his impressive floater
The Dallas Mavericks are going to be back in the playoffs for the first time since 2016. Luka Doncic is leading the way. The 21-year-old has become a superstar in his second NBA season. Doncic is in the MVP conversation and has a case to win the Most Improved Player award.
Part of his breakout has been tied to driving the ball more and improving his finishing around the rim. Luka is shooting 69.9 percent within five feet of the basket this season. He has talked about improving his left hand. One thing that makes Doncic impossible to stop is his floater.
NBA Stats breaks that type of shot down into three different categories. Eliminating floating jump shots because Doncic is six of 31 and they take place from further out, he has hit 80 of 168 driving floaters or 47.6 percent. Finishing well at the rim plus the threat of the floater makes him impossible to stop.
