Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic rested on Sunday night as his team lost to the Thunder in Oklahoma City. Luka is carrying a massive workload for the shorthanded Mavs, and he lifted his team to eight wins in their last nine before missing the Jan. 8 contest.

The Mavericks have an off day on Monday before facing the Clippers in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Doncic and head coach Jason Kidd will be busy as they travel to SoFi Stadium to support TCU as they play for the NCAA football national championship against Georgia.

The Mavericks coach and superstar even got custom jerseys from the Horned Frogs, and they will be ready to support during the title game in LA.
