The Dallas Mavericks point guard Luka Doncic is one of the best players in the league. Despite being just 22-year-olds, he plays like a polished veteran who has spent years in the league.
As a result, Dallas fans expect Doncic to carry the team on his back in their quest for an NBA Championship. This season, the team might have an actual shot to win the title. The team is on the right track after a slow start to the season.
But being consistent is something which is still missing from their performances. Tonight, the Mavs lost a home game against Kawhi Leonard and the LA Clippers. After four quarters, the scoreline was 109-99 as the Mavs were outplayed by the Clippers.
Despite the defeat, their superstar Luka Doncic had yet another amazing game. He finished the game with a triple-double, but it wasn’t enough to help his team win the game.
Luka Doncic continues to shatter NBA records
Doncic’s 25-point triple-double performance marked the 34th triple-double of his career. As a result, he moved one step closer to cracking the top-ten in the category. He is currently 11th on the list of most triple-doubles in the history of the NBA and left behind NBA Hall of Famer Bob Cousy.

Doncic’s ability to do multiple things on the court is simply magnificent. He has the skill to change the outcome of a game single-handedly. This ability of Luka will help the team continue to push for doing better in their upcoming game.
Although the Mavericks were defeated tonight, they are still in the playoff race. They hold the eighth seed in the Western Conference with a record of 20-18. Moving forward, the team will rely on Luka to help them improve their record.
Once the team locks in the playoff spot, they can focus on advancing forward. Even last season, Doncic pushed the LA Clippers to six games in the opening round of the postseason.
