Dallas Mavericks best moment: Luka Doncic sinks playoff game-winner

Dallas Mavericks point guard Luka Doncic cemented his superstar status in the playoffs. He produced enough during the regular season to make first-team All-NBA and finish fourth in the MVP voting. Doncic doing it in the playoffs takes him to a whole different level. The 21-year-old certainly did not disappoint.

Doncic set a record for most points in a playoff debut by dropping 42 in game one. He struggled with foul trouble in game two but still managed to have 28 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists in 28 minutes of action. Luka sprained his ankle in game three, and it looked like his season may be over.

Instead, the Mavericks superstar came back with a magical performance in game four. He willed Dallas to victory by producing 43 points, 17 rebounds, and 13 assists. Doncic hit an unforgettable shot to the end the game too.
