Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic was unstoppable on Saturday as Slovenia dominated Hungary 103-88 in EuroBasket 2022. The 23-year-old superstar was playing with joy and putting on a show. He did not play in the fourth quarter, but it was still an utterly impressive performance from the Mavs star.

It was Slovenia’s second straight win in EuroBasket. Luka used his passing to defeat Lithuania in the opener, and he went deep into his bag of tricks in their second game. Doncic showcased his highlight reel passing, incredible dribbling, and plenty of shooting in the dominant victory.

Here is a closer look at Luka’s performance against Hungary before diving into what is next for the 23-year-old and the Slovenian National Team.

It started early with the best play fans will see today. Doncic stole the ball on one end, dribbled between an opponent’s legs, and threw a perfect lob for an alley-oop. It was just the start of an incredible night from the 23-year-old, and fans can watch it again below.

Luka was far from done there. He was shaking people with his dribble and knocking down his patented step-back jumpers. There was plenty of no look passes as his incredible vision was on full display. Fans can see Doncic going off in the highlight reel below.

Number 77 finished 20 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal, and one block in 19.3 minutes of action. He made eight of his 11 field goals, including three 3-pointers as his country cruised to victory. It was a jaw-dropping performance that showed just how special Luka is and how dangerous Slovenia will be in this tournament.

Slovenia is back in action on Sunday against Bosnia and Herzegovina. They will look to move to 3-0 in EuroBasket 2022 as they face Jusuf Nurkic and his country. Doncic will be locked in as both teams on the second night of a back-to-back. Expect another monster performance as Slovenia look to keep building towards their second straight EuroBasket title. Luka is cannot miss right now, so be sure to tune in and enjoy the show.
