Luka Doncic drops 44 points as Dallas Mavericks fall to Trail Blazers
The Blazers blitzed the Mavs for 45 points in the third quarter, but that did not stop Doncic from putting on a show. See an incredible pass for a wide-open triple below.
Luka had ten points and three dimes in the quarter to give him 34 and seven for the game. The 21-year-old was on fire, but the Mavericks defense was lackluster at best in the third as Portland pushed their way to a 12-point advantage.
Doncic started the final period on the bench, but coach Carlisle brought him back with just under nine minutes remaining. The Mavs were down 11 and needed to get stops to have a chance. Luka brought them back as he continued to attack the paint and get buckets.
The Portland Trail Blazers held on in a wild and entertaining game on Valentine’s Day. Doncic produced 44 points, seven rebounds, nine assists, and five 3-pointers made, but he missed the game-tying shot with under five seconds remaining. Luka was 14 of 20 from the field and was incredible in his 36 minutes of action.
The Dallas Mavericks superstar made his share of history on Sunday night too.
