Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic was a highlight machine during the restart

The Dallas Mavericks were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round by the LA Clippers. It was not without a fight. Luka Doncic kept the Mavs in the series, but Dallas could not upset the title favorites without Kristaps Porzingis.

The Mavs 21-year-old superstar was playing at a new level during the restart. He averaged 32.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 11.3 assists per game during the six seeding games where he played a full complement of minutes. The Mavericks were locked in, so Luka only saw 13 minutes of action in the final contest. He continued that incredible production in the playoffs against one of the best defensive teams in the NBA.

Doncic is unstoppable. Teams are just hoping to slow him down. He can get anywhere he wants on the floor and continues to make defenses pay no matter how they try to defend him. Luka is a human highlight reel too. Let us take a closer look.

The once in a lifetime experience will be remembered by fans for the 43-point triple-double in the playoffs that included a game-winning buzzer-beater. That was far from the only Doncic highlight. Here are 11-plus minutes of his best plays from inside the Orlando bubble.

The craziest part is Luka is not done. He will continue to improve every year for the next decade. That prime Doncic is on pace to one of the best players ever. Yes, I said ever. Luka improving his free throw and 3-point percentages puts him well over 30 points per game. Fans saw a new level of defense from the 21-year-old in Orlando too.

The rest of the NBA should be worried. Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks are going to be something special, so do not miss a second of it.
