The Luka Doncic Show rolled on Wednesday as the budding young Dallas Mavericks star dominated the Golden State Warriors to the tune of 35 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists.
In addition to pumping up his already-ridiculous season averages to even dizzier heights (29.9 points, 10.6 rebounds, 9.4 assists), Doncic’s seventh triple-double in 14 games set a handful of impressive statistical milestones.
Doncic fell a point short of matching Dirk Nowitzki’s team record for points in a half, set Nov. 3, 2009, against Utah. Doncic was 10 for 11 from the floor, making 6 of 7 3-pointers, and hit 7 of 8 free throws.
A tale of dominance, in seven Tweets:
