The Dallas Mavericks have won three straight games and four of their last five behind some incredible play by superstar Luka Doncic. The 21-year-old has scored 25 or more points in a dozen straight games as the Mavs are rebounding from their slow start.

Doncic needs fans’ help. He started the All-Star game last year for Team LeBron. Luka scored eight points as he became the third Maverick to earn the start in the prestigious game. He wants to repeat the feat in 2021, but he needs a boost.

The NBA released the second round of voting totals on Feb. 11. Let us take a closer look at where Luka stands and why fans need to vote for Doncic before it is too late.
