Doncic is one step away from entering history – NBA

The Slovenian was just outside the Top Ten in triple-doubles in NBA history. If he gets one more in a Dallas Mavericks jersey, he’ll catch Fat Lever with 43 records.

Luka Doncic continues his unstoppable path to NBA history and, one night after suffering a painful defeat at the hands of the Golden State Warriors, the Slovenian once again showed that he is made of different stuff and was the leader of the Mavericks victory against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The victory of the Mavericks by 132-112 left the former Real Madrid at the gates of history once again with only 22 years.

Luka Doncic was not the leading scorer as he is used to, but he had 15 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists in his sixth triple-double of the regular season and the 42nd in just four seasons in the NBA when he arrived from Spain.

In this way, the Slovenian was just one away from equaling Fat Lever (43) as the tenth player with the most triple-doubles in the history of the National Basketball Association being no less than 22 years old.

After the Dallas Mavericks’ victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, which placed them more comfortably in fifth place in the Western Conference, his teammate Kristaps Porzingis was the top scorer with 22 points, continued to perform well during the regular season and told what the secret:

“Everything starts with Luka. Everything becomes much easier with him on the pitch”.

The Mavericks, who came to have a maximum difference of 23 points, showed greater depth in the squad and, in addition to Luka Doncic and Porzingis, had the contribution of Jalen Brunson, who finished with 20 points and 11 assists, which ended up nullifying the 23 points scored by Anfernee Simmons, the best player on the Blazers, and CJ McCollum, with the same numbers as Brunson.

When the game and Dallas’ lead were a bit jeopardized, two players came off the bench: Reggie Bullock and Frank Ntilikina with 15 and 8 points, respectively. Although, who was in charge of scoring at key moments? Luke Doncic.
