Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic produced unbelievable highlights in the playoffs
Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic confirmed his standing as one of the NBA’s best players during his first playoff appearance. The LA Clippers are a top-five defense, but they had no answers for stopping the 21-year-old. Doncic got to his spots and made the opposition pay repeatedly.
The title-favorite Clippers took the series in six games. Luka and the Mavs made things interesting, though. They were leading in game one until Kristaps Porzingis was ejected. Dallas won game two. Doncic injured his ankle in the game three loss, only to come back to put up a historic performance including the game-winning buzzer-beater in game four. Dallas had the series tied after four games.
Luka averaged 31.0 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 8.7 assists in his first NBA playoffs. He was in foul trouble in game two and missed time with an ankle injury in game three. Those numbers could be even scarier. There were plenty of unforgettable plays too.
