Dallas Mavericks: Luka Doncic drops 28 in loss to the Bucks
Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic has been incredible during the team’s four-game winning streak. He had two triple-doubles, but narrowly missed making it four straight. Doncic also scored over 33 points in three of his last four. Nobody can stop the Mavs superstar right now.
The team traveled to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks on Jan. 15. The headliner was the showdown of MVP favorites. Dallas was missing the defenders they primarily use on Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Bucks always present a difficult challenge, especially on their home floor, but the Mavericks were up against it on Friday night.
It was not Luka’s best night, but he kept the Mavs in the game. Ultimately, Giannis and company got the win, but it was an impressive performance from Doncic and the short-handed Mavericks. See his best plays here.
