The Dallas Mavericks evened their Western Conference semifinal series with the Phoenix Suns at two games apiece on May 8 behind 26-point double-double from Luka Doncic. It was their second straight victory, and another impressive showing by the Mavs.
This team is special. It may not be the most talented group, but what they lack in skill they make up for in heart, toughness, and togetherness. The Mavericks want to win for each other and their chemistry is off the charts.
Doncic is having a blast during the team’s playoff run. Fans have seen him scowling at the opposition on the court or hyping up the crowd after a key play, but his mood shined through after the Game 4 win over Phoenix. Here is a look at what Luka got up to postgame.

Before Luka took the microphone following Game 4, Jalen Brunson took his turn. Doncic arrived a bit early to try to make his teammate laugh during his session with reporters. Fans can see part of number 77’s high jinks below.
Luka was not done there as he carried on with humor into his interview. The 23-year-old superstar was wearing a summer shirt, and it became a topic of conversation. See Doncic providing some laughs to the reporters during his session.
Luka is normally guarded in his postgame interviews, so it was refreshing to see him showing off his humor on May 8. He is having so much fun as the Mavericks are giving the top-seeded Suns all they can handle.
Doncic is leading the NBA by averaging 31.3 points per game in the playoffs. He is an unstoppable offensive force that just keeps getting better.

Nobody is enjoying it more than Luka Doncic, and the best is still yet to come from the 23-year-old superstar. Expect plenty more laughs to go with the incredible basketball too.
