The Dallas Mavericks are not where they want to be in the standings, but that is no fault of Luka Doncic. The 21-year-old superstar has been incredible through 20 games. He averages over 27 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists per game, but the Mavs are just 8-12. Expect Luka to be the engine that helps them climb the standings.
His improvements are noticeable. Doncic is attacking in the mid-range more as he continues to be an unstoppable offensive force. The Mavs star improved his defense too. Fans can catch him guarding the elite forwards in the Western Conference a couple of times each night and holding his own.
Fans know it is just not the numbers with Luka. The All-NBA guard produces one of the best highlight reels in the league. Let us take a closer look at his best plays from the first quarter of the 2020-2021 season.
