The Dallas Mavericks won seven of their ten games in February as superstar Luka Doncic absolutely went off. He averaged 34.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 8.8 assists, and 1.1 steals in 37.1 minutes per game. Doncic shot 45.7 percent from the field, 41.2 percent on his threes, and 75.0 percent from the free-throw line as he was unstoppable.

Much was made about Luka’s slow start to the season. There was plenty of talk about his weight and conditioning as the 23-year-old superstar struggled to put up his usual All-NBA numbers. Doncic heard the noise and coupled that with being snubbed as an All-Star starter to get some extra motivation to play at a historic level.

Luka was the easy choice for Western Conference Player of the Month for February. It was the second time (November 2019) that the Mavericks superstar won the award, and he became the fourth different player to take home the honor so far this season. Here is a closer look at Doncic’s play last month and what to expect down the stretch.

Luka had the first 50-point game of his career in a win over the LA Clippers on Feb. 10 just hours after the Mavs traded Kristaps Porzingis to Washington. He also had four games with 40 or more points and seven where he topped 30. It was an incredible month that was wrapped up by an impossible Mavs comeback to defeat the Warriors, and Doncic turning 23 years old on Feb. 28.

Luka is unstoppable right now, and the best is still yet to come. Fans know he always takes his game to another level in the playoffs. Luka Doncic is ready to lead the Dallas Mavericks on a deep postseason run.

He won Player of the Month for February and expect him to continue putting up historic numbers down the stretch and into the playoffs. Stay tuned to see what Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks can do next.
