Luka Doncic struggles in second half as Dallas Mavericks fall to Raptors

Doncic found Kristaps Porzingis for back-to-back dunks early in the third quarter. See both plays here.

Luka was not taking over and scoring on Monday night. He played all 12 minutes in the third but netted just five points. Doncic had 14 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists entering the fourth quarter, but the Mavericks trailed by nine.

Luka returned with 8:08 left in the final period as Toronto ballooned the lead to 15 points. Doncic could not bring the Mavs back. They were blown out on the second of a back-to-back as the Raptors had a strong game plan against Luka. The 21-year-old superstar still managed to produce 15 points, seven rebounds, nine assists, but he was just four of 11 shooting from the field.
