Luka Doncic rewrites NBA history: sports stars praised him

Slovenian star Luka Doncic rewrote NBA history. The 22-year-old Dallas Mavericks talent is one of the most popular athletes in the NBA, and many think that Luka is the best player in the world right now. Doncic was the protagonist with a legendary performance, one of those destined to remain in the history of this sport.

Dallas won against New York only in overtime completing a crazy comeback. Great credit for this victory goes to Doncic, protagonist with a triple double never happened in history. Doncic was the first to sign 60 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists, a score that leaves everyone speechless.

Down by 2 points with 4 seconds to go, Doncic deliberately missed a free throw, and after a daring series of rebounds he somehow found the ball in his hand, scoring the tying basket on the fly one second from the end to force overtime, in what was already his career-high in points at 53.

In overtime, Doncic added another 7 points and 3 rebounds to his tally to bring his total to 60 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists, putting in a performance that no one from Michael Jordan to LeBron James to James Harden had ever managed.
