The Dallas Mavericks and the LA Clippers locked horns tonight in an anticipated Western Conference fixture. Thanks to a fabulous performance from Luka Doncic, the Mavs won the game over the Clippers.
Opponent defenders had no answer for Luka as he torched them with a humongous 42 point performance! Following the victory, the Mavs improved their record to 21-18 as they manage to hold the eighth seed in the conference.
During the game, Luka flaunted his skills time and time again. Among those moments, one specific moment made fans go crazy on social media platforms. Doncic put Clippers’ Paul George on skates with a brutal crossover and finished the play with a beautiful floater.

George is one of the best defending guards in the league and embarrassing him like that proves the insane skills that Luka possesses. Looking at his game, one cannot help but wonder if he is a candidate to win the regular-season MVP?
Can Luka Doncic win the MVP this season?
Even before the 2020-21 NBA season commenced, many predicted that Luka Doncic would have a breakout season this year. They placed their trust in the 22-year-old to bag in the first MVP of his career.
Although Luka took some time to get into his groove, he is now playing at an insane level. Because of Doncic’s fabulous form, the Mavericks are 7-3 in their past ten games. Thus, the European wonder kid is making a strong MVP case for himself.
However, the only thing that is holding him back is the record of his team. If the Mavericks can finish off the season as one of the top five teams in the conference, it will bolster Doncic’s chances to win the MVP award.
Otherwise, players like Joel Embiid and LeBron James would have the upper hand over him in the MVP race. Whatever be the case, let us know your views on your expectations from him this season. Feel free to reveal your thoughts in the comments section down below.
