The Dallas Mavericks keep climbing the standings behind superstar Luka Doncic. The 23-year-old has been unstoppable since returning from a ten-game absence in January. Over his last 30 games, Doncic has averaged 30.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 8.6 assists, and 1.3 steals per game as the Mavericks have produced the second-best record in the league.
It was a slow start to the year for number 77 as he showed up a bit out of shape. Luka used it as motivation and added fuel by missing out on starting the 2022 All-Star game in Cleveland. He made his third All-Star appearance, but it was the first time he did not start the contest on the floor. It has motivated Doncic to play the best basketball of his career and made the Mavericks a force in the Western Conference.
The accolades keep rolling in for the Mavs superstar. He is the reigning Western Conference Player of the Month, and just won West Player of the Week for the second time this season on March 14. Here is a look at his latest run.
Luka Doncic wins Western Conference Player of the Week for 2nd time this year
Doncic averaged 30.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 6.3 assists per game over the Dallas Mavericks four games last week as they defeated the Jazz, Rockets, and Celtics.
It was his second time being named West Player of the Week this season, and the sixth time in his career already. The 23-year-old is on pace to go down as an all-time great, and fans can expect him to continue improving his game. Luka is working on a new offensive weapon that could take his game to another level.
