The Dallas Mavericks heated up heading into the All-Star break as superstar Luka Doncic was playing at an MVP level. They won nine of their last 11 games as the 22-year-old earned his second consecutive All-Star start. The historic performances have continued for the Mavs star in his third NBA season.
Luka also took part in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge on March 7. The NBA moved all of the All-Star weekend events to Sunday night. It kicked off with the skills competition. Doncic earned a bye in the first round before being upset by eventual champion Domantas Sabonis in the semifinals. It was a bit of a disappointing showing from the Mavericks superstar.
Luka poked fun at himself during a hilarious Twitter exchange with teammate Jalen Brunson on his performance in the 2021 Taco Bell Skills Challenge. Let us take a closer look.
