Tiktukno: summary of the day's events in sports, 30.11 (Sport1)
"It's already getting boring" - that's what Jason Kidd said tonight (between Tuesday and Wednesday), when he was asked to describe another wonderful performance by the star of Dallas, Luka Doncic.
But what the Slovenian superstar has been doing since the start of the season is anything but boring.
The entire league so far has 0 triple doubles of 40 points or more.
Doncic already has three, after 42 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists on Golden State's head.
"Let's see something new from him," kid joked, "maybe with his left hand. I'm already kidding. He's one of the best in the world, and he just does what he does. Some people already take him for granted. This guy is special."

Doncic, the king of baskets since the start of the season, recorded his fifth triple-double of the season and 51st of his career.
This is the fifth time he has reached a triple double with 40 or more points - only Oscar Robertson, Russell Westbrook, James Harden and LeBron James have done more, and Luca is only 23 years old.
It ended 113:116 for the Mavs over the champion at the end of a great drama - in the end, Golden State could have won or sent the game to overtime twice, but Stephen Curry made moves and Klay Thompson missed at the buzzer.
"I was worried, I won't lie," Doncic admitted.
"It's Clay, he doesn't miss many free throws. I was happy when it didn't go in."
About his great performance he said: "I gave everything, at the end I was very tired but we needed this victory. We deserved it."
Kerry praised the star he lost to: "His size and dribbling abilities force you to be alert all game, and his ability to shoot from three means you have to worry about everything with him. His vision of the game is unusual, he has a complete offensive package and when he hits shots, like tonight , It is difficult".
About his fateful loss towards the end, the champion star said: "I made a stupid move when I didn't go for the layup, I got a little confused about the time and the result. I didn't think I made any steps, but who am I to say?"
