"It's already getting boring", that's how Jason Kidd commented tonight (Wednesday), about another great night of Dallas star Luka Doncic.
"Let's see something new from him," the Mavericks coach joked, "maybe with his left hand. I'm already joking. 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."
"It's getting boring... what else, let's see something different"

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 triple figures with 40 or more points, and only Oscar Robertson, Russell Westbrook, James Harden and LeBron James have done it more times before him, and Luka is only 23 years old.
Luka Doncic is the 6th player to record 5+ 40-point triple-doubles:

James Harden (16)

Wilt Chamberlain (7)
LeBron James (6)

It ended 113:116 for Dallas 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."
Steph Curry praised the Slovenian superstar: "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 game vision is extraordinary, he has the 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?"
