Luka got into the paint for this incredible finish to show off his magic late in the third period.

Nikola Jokic answered on the other end to send the contest to overtime.
Doncic went off in the extra session. He had the first five points and nailed some clutch free throws late to lift the Mavericks to the road victory. The Mavericks superstar finished with 38 points, nine rebounds, 13 assists, four steals, and one block in 43 minutes of action on Thursday night. It was the second straight incredible game from Luka Doncic.
The Dallas Mavericks return home to host the Orlando Magic on Saturday. Expect another monster night from Doncic as the Mavs look to make it three straight wins. Stay tuned.
