Luka Doncic continued his breakout season Monday with yet another remarkable performance, erupting for a career-high 42 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists as the Dallas Mavericks outlasted the San Antonio Spurs 117-110.
The feat put him in extremely rare company, with only LeBron James, Doncic’s childhood idol, putting up such a line at a younger age.
”It feels like every day there are stats you don’t know about, stats that you read about,” Doncic said after Monday’s game. ”It’s great to hit.”
Doncic’s sixth triple-double of 2019-20 pushed his season averages to even more absurd heights at 29.5 points, 10.7 rebounds and 9.3 assists.
