Luka Doncic doesn't stop.

The fantastic period of the Dallas star continued tonight (between Thursday and Friday) with another great performance in the 115:119 victory over the Lakers, after two overtimes.

It was the second time in three weeks that the Slovenian phenomenon beat LeBron James, and this time he did it in style, too, with a series of big clutch moves and his tenth triple-double of the season - 35 points, 14 rebounds and 13 assists.

Doncic leads the NBA in points, and continues to provide Jordanian numbers.

Tonight he became the first player since Michael to average 40 or more points in 10 consecutive games at the age of 23 or younger.

And above all, he once again demonstrated a composure that is reserved for the greatest, with a three-pointer that forced overtime, and another money-time three-pointer in the last minute of the first overtime.

Doncic already has 10 baskets that tied or gave Dallas an advantage in the last minute, since he joined the NBA.

The 3-pointer he made before the end of regulation, which forced the first overtime, was his first field goal of the fourth quarter, after the Lakers sent him a double guard and were ready to do anything to get the ball out of his hands.

Precisely during the course in question, they abandoned the tactic that was relatively successful.

"I was surprised, I admit. I was convinced they were going to foul me to prevent me from scoring a three-pointer, and I tried to get up for the shot as quickly as possible," Doncic said.

Doncic was guarded too aggressively during the game, and in one of the moves in the last quarter, Russell Westbrook appeared to push him with force, doubt on purpose.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban tweeted during the game: "This is the worst refereeing I've ever seen. Luka gets no respect."

At the end, when Doncic was asked about Cuban's statement, he smiled and replied with a hint: "I have nothing to say about it, I don't want to get fined."


Be that as it may, even if from the judges Luca still does not receive the proper treatment, from the American media he certainly does.

In an article published on ESPN even before the game tonight, the possibility was raised that Doncic will become the king of baskets of all time in the league, and overtake LeBron who is on the safe way to overtake Kareem Abdul Jabbar and reach the top.

Before the game, Doncic was asked about this possibility, and provided an honest answer.

"There's no way it's going to happen, because I'm just not going to play for that many years. 20 years in the NBA? I don't know about's a long time, maybe too long. I'd rather go back to my farm in Slovenia at some point."
