    Luka Doncic celebrates his game-winner. via ESPN/NBA Luka Doncic hit a wild, running, three-point game-winner on Wednesday. JJ Redick said the shot was so unusual, he thought it was a two-pointer and didn't realize the Mavs had won. Doncic apparently practices trick shots and unusual shots all of the time. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Luka Doncic wowed the NBA world on Wednesday with one of the wildest game-winners of the season. With 1.8 seconds left and the Dallas Mavericks trailing the Memphis Grizzlies by two, Doncic caught the ball on the left wing, ducked past a defender, and launched a running, floating three-pointer that went through as time expired. As Doncic's teammate JJ Redick said on his podcast, "The Old Man and the Three," Doncic's shot was so unorthodox that Redick didn't even realize the Mavs had won the game. "When he shot the ball...

The game-winner heard around the world was a triumph of skill, practice, gusto and necessity. Curry never knew how far he was from the hoop. He just knew the clock was dwindling, and it was time to shoot. Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad According to StatMuse, Curry was then in the middle of the greatest three-game 3-point shooting streak in NBA history. He also beat his own single-season record for threes made in a season in that game.

    Grayson Allen’s hot streak was halted in the most painful of ways. The 25-year-old guard has been on an offensive tear, but two missed free throws overshadowed his 23-point performance in the Grizzlies’ heartbreaking 114-113 to the Mavericks on Wednesday night. All signs pointed to a victory for Memphis late in the game. They were up by two when Allen, a 90.6% free-throw shooter, went to the line with 2.2 seconds left. Even if Allen missed one of two shots, Dallas’ best chance would be to force overtime. The former Duke star, who is averaging double-digit points for the first time in his NBA career, missed both free throws. With seconds to spare, the Mavericks inbounded the ball to Luka Doncic, who delivered in a big way. Doncic managed to get a shot off after stumbling through multiple Grizzlies defenders, and knocked down a Hail-Mary...
    Luka Doncic played the savior for the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Mavericks were down two points with less than two seconds remaining in the game. Doncic got the ball and put up a prayer from just beyond the three-point line and the ball went through the net. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Doncic smiled and tried to get the limited number of fans in Memphis hyped up. He was immediately greeted by teammates, and Tim Hardaway Jr. let a fan know it was a three-pointer and not a two-pointer. "Honestly, I don’t remember," Doncic replied when he was asked whether he got a good look at the rim. "I was kind of falling down. It’s kind of lucky, but we’ll take it."

    Luka Doncic is one of the craftiest guards that the NBA has ever seen. He is the exception to every defensive set a team makes up, as Doncic can hurt any team from any point of offense. Double him? He will find the open-man. Try to be physical? He has a tough 6’7 frame. Even if you defend him as well as you can, Doncic has a deadly step-back three. But defensive legend Tony Allen knows how he would stop Doncic. “I’m not giving that up. I’m not giving that up. Everything you’re going to have to beat me with is going to have to be going to the right. I know this is your strong hand, but you can get nine points in three shots going to this left hand, so I think that’s more deadly. If you score on me, you’re going to have to score on me...
    This last one week has been absolutely crazy for the Mavericks who have produced unpredictable results. They defeated WC toppers Utah Jazz and crushed the fearless Bucks while losing against the pitiful Rockets. And now, they have lost to the Spurs in a two-point game that washed off Luka Doncic’s efforts. The Slovenian is averaging almost identical to his last season numbers, and it has helped the Mavs come out of misery multiple times this year. As a result, Mark Cuban’s team is sitting comfortably at #7 in the WC. But which aspect of Luka’s game seemed the most impressive, and which legend(s) does he resemble?

    DALLAS CBSDFW.COM/(AP) — The team was still stinging from a loss against an in-state opponent and one of the worst in the league, so Kristaps Porzingis got two quick shots on purpose and another by accident in the fourth quarter while putting Dallas in front of Milwaukee. It was a good night for the 7′ 3″ Latvian who appeared unhappy over not getting any looks late in a loss to lowly Houston. Those eight consecutive points helped put quite the bookends on arguably the worst loss of the season for the Mavericks: victories over NBA-leading Utah and the Eastern Conference-contending Bucks.

    The Dallas Mavericks pulled off an amazing victory yesterday as they beat arguably the best team in the NBA, the Utah Jazz. Coming into the match, the Jazz were in red-hot form with a nine game winning streak and had the best overall record. The Mavericks, on the other hand, were coming off of a four game winning streak of their own, but were missing multiple key players against the Jazz. Their record against the Jazz this season was also appalling, with two back-to-back losses.

The Jazz are well above every team in the NBA and have a league-best record of 38 wins and 11 losses. The Dallas Mavericks, meanwhile, put on an all-round clinic against the Washington Wizards.

    Luka Doncic has taken the league by storm. In just a few years, Doncic has gone from a European wild-card to one of the best players in the NBA. Doncic is still extremely young, but he plays substantially better than many experienced players. Luka has shown great maturity in his game but still continues to display the quality that makes him one of the hottest commodities in the NBA. D-Rose pays respect to Luka Doncic Former NBA MVP Derrick Rose also has the same opinion of Luka. After the Knicks‘ loss to the Dallas Mavericks a few days ago, Derrick Rose gave Luka Doncic a signed jersey. The jersey read ‘To Luka, keep pushing yourself. I’m a huge fan of your game! Peace and Love.’ These words coming from Derrick Rose are a huge compliment, given the fact that he is a former MVP in his own right. Luka Doncic...
    Luka Doncic’s step-back 3 game against the Boston Celtics provided a scary glimpse of the future. Through the first two seasons of his NBA career, one of the biggest knocks on Luka Doncic — on the offensive side of the ball, anyway — was his lack of efficiency from 3-point range. As a masterful creator with the ball in his hands, Doncic immediately proved himself capable of carving out space for his own shot and for his teammates’ shots, but when it came to actually making his own step-back 3s, the results just weren’t there. But that’s the scary thing about a kid being that good in his early 20s: He was only going to get better, and with more practice, those clean step-back 3s were eventually going to start finding the bottom of the net. While the Dallas Mavericks star has been hitting his 3s at a much healthier 36.8...
    The Dallas Mavericks have added another shooter around Luka Doncic, with J.J. Redick coming via a deal with the New Orleans Pelicans. The Dallas Mavericks are clinging to the eighth spot in the West, and they’ve added a piece at the trade deadline. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Dallas has agreed to a deal to get guard J.J. Redick from the New Orleans Pelicans. According to Charania, the Mavericks will also acquire Nicolo Melli while sending James Johnson, Wes Iwundu and a second-round pick to the Pelicans. Melli played 22 games for New Orleans this year, averaging 2.0 points and 11 minutes per game. It’s no secret Redick was a candidate to be traded, and failing that he was in line to be bought out by New Orleans. He has missed time recently with a heel injury, so when he might play again is unclear right now. He’s...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Lower back tightness sidelined Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic Wednesday night. The recently turned 22-year-old sat out in the victory over Oklahoma City, but coach Rick Carlisle said his health shouldn’t cost him his second All-Star appearance this weekend.

He has been in sensational form and fans are witnessing his transition from a star to a superstar right in front of their eyes. Be it scoring or playmaking, Luka is carrying the team on his back.

    Luka Doncic has been in excellent form this season. The 21-year-old is making a case for himself to win the first MVP of his career. But despite his excellent form, the Mavericks haven’t been able to back their superstar. As a result, the team is out of the playoff race and one game below the .500 record. In their next game, they will face off against the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets are not only a top Eastern Conference team, but one of the favorites to win the 2020-21 NBA Championship.

    Tonight, the Dallas Mavericks and the Boston Celtics produced an absolutely thrilling game. It was the 21-year-old phenom, Luka Doncic, who was the star of the show as he continued with his tremendous form this season. Doncic finished the game with 31 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists. But it was his game-winning shot that sealed the victory for his team. Dallas had hold of the final possession of the game, and they entrusted it to their young superstar.

    DALLAS — Luka Doncic slammed the scorer’s table in joy this time, rather than anger. The Dallas sensation hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds remaining — his second go-ahead 3 in the final minute — and the Mavericks avoided a fourth-quarter collapse in a 110-107 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night. The Celtics trailed by 11 points with three minutes to go before Jaylen Brown put them in front in the final minute with a short jumper. Doncic answered with a difficult 3 over 6-foot-8 Daniel Theis before Brown pulled Boston even at 107-all with another bucket. Doncic did it again — this time with Kemba Walker running at him on a step-back shot from the left wing — and turned to the scorer’s table in the same way he had after a last-second loss to Phoenix.

    Luka Doncic hit not one, but two clutch step-back 3s to beat the Boston Celtics. Trailing by 11 points with three minutes left, the Boston Celtics made a late push on the road against the Dallas Mavericks Tuesday night.

When the Celtics went on an impressive 12-0 run late in the fourth quarter to turn a 104-93 deficit into a one-point lead, Doncic wasn’t frazzled.

    The Dallas Mavericks have struggled this season but Luka Doncic is continually improving and refining his game with versatility and focus. For a bevy of reasons — injuries, health and safety protocols, poor roster construction, underwhelming personnel — the Dallas Mavericks have not been good this season. At 13-15, they’re 10th in the West, 2.5 games ahead of 14th and 5.5 games back of fourth, well behind pace of hosting a playoff series like many deemed possible entering the year.

    Luka Doncic is arguably one of the best young players. The 21-year-old Slovenian has been the star player in a Dallas Mavericks side, which has seen a major drop this season with an overall record of 13 wins and 15 losses.

He is the fifth top scorer in the league scoring 29.1 points per game and has shown an all-round game so far this season with an average of 9.4 assists per game, the second-highest in the NBA this season.

This loss pushed their record to 13-15, and many are starting to wonder if the Mavericks are really a top contender in the West. In their recent defeat to the Blazers, the Mavs could have tied the game in the dying minutes.

    The Dallas Mavericks are proven trade experts, and one of their best came during the 2018 NBA Draft. They brought in Luka Doncic, a Slovenian youngster who had not played a single minute in USA. But in just 2-3 seasons, he has become one of the best players in the league. Tonight, he showed his quality once again, as he had a career-high 46 points against the Pelicans. In this process, he reached 4000 career points in just his 159th game, and joined elite company. Only Michael Jordan and Shaquille O’Neal have achieved this feat faster since 1976. Those two need no introduction, and it is another reminder of how special Doncic is. He finished the game with 46 points, eight rebounds and 12 assists. He also shot efficiently, going 17-30 from the field, and 5-8 from three. Most importantly, he was able to guide his team to their fourth...

    Luka Doncic is currently one of the best players in the NBA. The Slovenian has seen a meteoric rise over the past few years and has led the Dallas Mavericks from the front. In just two seasons, Doncic became the Rookie of the Year, an All-Star, and made an All-NBA first team, all while leading the Dallas Mavericks back to the playoffs last year. Luka Doncic joins an elite group Luka Doncic put up a stat line in his last game that puts him in an elite company in the NBA. After the game against the Atlanta Hawks, Doncic put up another 25-point, 10-assist game – the 36th of his career. He is now behind only Trae Young and James Harden. The only other player to have more than 20 games with those statistics is LeBron James. Doncic was fantastic against the Hawks and was close to notching another triple-double....
    ATLANTA (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The Dallas Mavericks snapped a six-game losing streak on the road Wednesday night. Luka Doncic scored 27 points and dished out 14 assists to help the team take down Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks 122-116. Kristaps Porzingis added 24 points and 11 rebounds for the Mavericks, including a crucial tip-in of a miss by Doncic with 32 seconds remaining that helped Dallas hold off a furious Atlanta comeback. Winning was a big relief for the Mavericks. “It wasn’t perfect,” Doncic said. “But we got the win, and that’s all that matters to me. We were so happy after the game. It’s been a tough stretch.” Luka Doncic #77 of the Dallas Mavericks and Trae Young #11 of the Atlanta Hawks on February 3, 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia.

    Luka Doncic is easily the most exciting young star in the NBA right now. While you do have players like Trae Young, Ja Morant, and Zion Williamson as other high-potential young players, Luka is something else. He was a top-five NBA MVP candidate in his sophomore season and he is the youngest player to be considered the odds-on-favorite to become MVP, with high projections this season. He is living up to those expectations. Luka is averaging 26.1 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 9.5 assists to start the season. He just boosted this average with a 34 points, 10 rebounds, and 9 assists performance against the San Antonio Spurs. Legendary head coach Gregg Popovich was full of praise for the young Maverick after the rivalry game. Any praise by Gregg Popovich is massive as he is one of the greatest coaches in the history of the NBA. His gushing over Luka and...
    The Mavericks finally bounced back after losing three back-to-back games. They won 124-112 against the Pacers to stand at 7-7 this season. It was a solid team performance that helped the Mavs put a W against a scary Pacers side led by Malcolm Brogdon. Obviously, it was not without the help of Luka Doncic that the Mavs could pull a win. Luka opened the game with a two-point shot and did not look back. He missed out on a couple of mid-range jump shots but got better as the game proceeded. In the end, he set an individual record in yet another feat of brilliance this season. Mavericks’ Luka Doncic for yet another league record For many NBA analysts, it is only about time that Luka will soon see his name alongside LeBron James in the category of legends. He is just 21-YO and still more than a month...
    Luka Doncic is one of the best players in the NBA. The 2019 Rookie of the year has grown leaps and bounds since entering the league two years ago. In his two seasons in the NBA, Doncic has been an All-Star, been named to an All-NBA first team, and been in the MVP race already. But even Doncic is capable of having an off night. Luka Doncic unhappy with loss to Bulls Tonight, the Chicago Bulls defeated the Dallas Mavericks. Despite Luka Doncic putting up a 30-point triple-double (36-15-16), the team came up short against the Bulls.

    After a slow start to the season, Luka Doncic and the Mavericks drastically improved over the last few games. In fact, Doncic became the Western Conference player of the week for his efforts this past week. However, their winning streak was put to an end by the Milwaukee Bucks tonight. The Bucks won the game by just 3 points and if it weren’t for a rushed shot by Kristaps Porzingis, the Mavs could have tied the game. Regardless of the shot, head coach Rick Carlisle’s decision not to call a timeout during that crucial play could be blamed for the mishap.

He missed, but the rebound caromed right to Willie Cauley-Stein.

Luka Doncic had 34 points, 13 rebounds, nine assists and a career-high four blocks, Kristaps Porzingis scored 16 points in his return from a knee injury and the Mavericks beat the Charlotte Hornets 104-93 on Wednesday night. “When both of those guys are out there at the same time it’s a game changer for us,” said Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle, who became the 16th coach in NBA history to reach 800 career victories. “They are two guys who can play on the inside and space the court on the outside.” Tim Hardaway Jr. added 18 points for the Mavericks.

    Luka Doncic will be turning 22 this year, but the European Magician has already become a household name around the league. This is Doncic’s third season in the league, but many believe he is ready to compete for the MVP race. Last year, Luka nearly averaged a triple-double with 28.8 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 8.8 assists per game. If it weren’t for a historic season by Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka had a strong case for becoming the league’s youngest MVP. Fast forward to the 2020-21 NBA season, Doncic has continued his phenomenal form. As a result of his terrific form, there has been a lot of buzz around the league for him lifting the MVP trophy this season. But does the 21-year-old has a strong case for becoming the MVP? Let’s take a look at his recent stats to get a clearer picture. Is Luka Doncic ready to lift the glorious...

On the other hand, the Orlando Magic blew their initial success to now stand at 6-3.  A lot of credit for the Mavs’ turnaround in this season goes to Luka Doncic. He changed gears from that game against the Miami Heat where he scored a 27-point double-double. Since then, his performance has only gotten better and the same form continued against the Orlando Magic as well.

    Luka Doncic just had his first triple-double of the season against the Houston Rockets. Doncic had a monster stat line with 33 points, 16 rebounds, and 11 assists in the Dallas win. Like with Steph Curry the other day, this has changed the conversation around Luka, who was being criticized for being out of shape a few days ago. Hall of Famer Isaiah Thomas has recognized Luka’s play and compared it to elite players like James Harden and Magic Johnson. Isaiah said: “That’s the unique thing about Luka and Harden, even though Harden didn’t have a good game tonight. These guys are so talented and so good that they can come in out of shape and put up these kinds of numbers and play themselves into shape. When they get in shape, they’re some of the best to have ever done it.” The Hall of Famer further added,...

    The Dallas Mavericks had a mixed beginning to their 2020-21 season. They began the preseason by defeating the Bucks in both games, but lost the rhythm after entering the regular season. If their 51-point victory against the Clippers is put aside, the fans had few reasons to rejoice. However, all that disappeared quickly as they defeated the Miami Heat 93-83 in a very low-scoring game. They successfully put Jimmy Butler to sleep by restricting him to just 2 points in his 27 minutes of play. Also, main man Luka Doncic shed off all the criticism by giving an all-round performance.

    The Dallas Mavericks have had a rough start to their season. Tonight, they lost to the Charlotte Hornets, making it their third loss in four games. Their main player, Luka Doncic, barely played 24 minutes and had just 12 points in this loss. After being named a preseason MVP candidate, Doncic has been unable to live up to the billing so far. Former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins called him out for these subpar performances and said that the team should be winning more games with him. The Mavericks losing Kristaps Porzingis to injury is a big loss for them. But as Perkins mentioned, that shouldn’t be an excuse for a potential MVP candidate being unable to lead his team to wins. They just came off a historic win against the Clippers, but were unable to keep their momentum going and fell to the Hornets. What is going wrong for Luka...
    LeBron James sees a lot of himself in Luka Doncic. The Lakers superstar has said as much on multiple occasions since Doncic entered the NBA in 2018 with the Mavericks. James and Doncic will forever sit in the record books as two of the most impressive teenagers in league history. Of course, James, 35, has added onto those impressive early seasons with championships and MVP awards. Doncic, 21, still has plenty of time to reach all those heights. In the meantime, though, the pair faces off on Christmas Day in 2020, and James will be matched up with a kindred basketball spirit. “Luka is one of my favorite players in the NBA today,” James said on the Road Trippin’ podcast earlier in December. “For the simple fact of, the way I play the game is exactly how I love the way he plays the game.

    The sudden passing away of Kobe Bryant forced the world to reminisce about everything related to him. After his retirement in 2016, the lover of basketball was frequent at games as a fan. He would love to cheer for the Lakers even when they’re not playing that well.  The chances of him taking up any role at the front office were huge. He used to enjoy passing his knowledge and wisdom to the young generation. This was one reason why Gianna Bryant was also a student of the game. She definitely inherited it from her father.  Kobe Bryant, wife Vanessa Bryant, daughter’s Gianna Maria Onore Bryant, and Natalia Diamante Bryant arrive at Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards 2016 at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion on July 14, 2016 in Westwood, California.

    Luka Doncic has had a momentous rise in the NBA. He has achieved a lot in just two seasons, and is showing signs that he may dominate for years. Doncic has no obvious athletic ability, but one of the smartest minds for the game. He can read a game as well as any vet can, and he is also a quiet athleticism about him which allows him to drive and score. NBA Legend and former Washington Wizards’ Gilbert Arenas has noticed Doncic and had this to say to Fubo Sports. “Luka has the advantage over anyone who’s guarding him because these guys are too athletic for this part of the game. Open court? You got him. Half-court when you need to be disciplined, you never learned it.” Further, he said, “He plays the puppet master game with you.

Things got heated up again between the two in Game 6. Doncic was driving to the lane and Morris tried to stop the 21-year-old. Instead, he slapped Doncic on the back of his head.

    Luka Doncic was fed up with Marcus Morris following another hard foul. The Dallas Mavericks have a legitimate superstar in Luka Doncic. He scored 38 points Sunday in what ended up being a losing effort against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Mavericks season is now over, but the team should be just fine with Doncic on the roster for years to come. The young star is clearly rattling other players and that was made evident Sunday when Marcus Morris essentially punched him in the head. Morris was clearly not going for the ball and was ejected from the game after the foul. This came after he had already stepped on Doncic’s ankle earlier in the series. Doncic was held back Sunday when the foul occurred and was finally able to share his thoughts after the game. ‘Terrible foul. Two games in a row he did something like that.’ Luka Doncic...
    The LA Clippers closed out a tough series against the Dallas Mavericks in Game 6 to win the series. The Dallas Mavericks made this a better first-round playoff series than anticipated, but were ultimately outmatched by the LA Clippers. Despite the Clippers losing Marcus Morris early in this Game 6 clincher, the loss of Kristaps Porzingis (among other things) stung the Mavs too much for them to keep up. Dallas, the regular season’s league-leading offense, couldn’t buy a 3 on Sunday, going a putrid 11-of-37 from downtown (29.7 percent). Pair that with its lackluster (at best) defense, and you get a pretty bad result.

    Clippers forward Marcus Morris earned an ejection Sunday with a Flagrant 2 foul on Mavericks forward Luka Doncic. Officials ruled Morris made excessive contact above the shoulders and did not make a play on the ball when he swung his arm and hit Doncic about the head. Doncic tried to charge at Morris after being sent to the floor but was restrained by center Boban Marjanovic. LA coach Doc Rivers told ESPN he thought Morris’ play was clean. The first-quarter foul added to the bad blood between the teams in this first-round NBA playoff series, again with Doncic in the middle. LA’s Montrezl Harrell made what was considered a racist comment toward Doncic in Game 3 of the series.

    Marcus Morris and Luka Doncic are at the center of attention yet again Sure, we expect Doncic to make headlines, especially with the Mavs’ backs against the wall in a ‘win or go home’ Game 6. For Marcus Morris to get the same distinction, however, something must have gone horribly wrong. Morris already had one questionable incident involving Doncic this series, in which he took an odd stride and stepped on the back of the Spanish star’s ankle. Doncic claimed he had no ill will toward Morris, and didn’t think the move was intentional. After Sunday, Luka is singing a different tune.

    Los Angeles Clippers forward Marcus Morris created a stir during the team’s Game 5 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday when he was accused of stepping on Luka Doncic’s ankle. The incident occurred in the third quarter of the Clippers' 154-111 victory. Morris was seen stepping on Doncic’s left foot. Doncic had injured his left ankle in Game 3. Replay showed Doncic fall, but it didn’t appear to be an intentional maneuver on the surface. CLIPPERS ROLL PAST MAVERICKS 154-111 TO TAKE 3-2 SERIES LEAD Morris addressed the incident on Twitter after the game. “I play this game with a level of respect for myself and other players.

    Luka Doncic isn’t a fan of Marcus Morris’ words or actions in this series. The Dallas Mavericks had a rough game on Tuesday night. They were blown out by the Los Angeles Clippers 154-111 in a pivotal Game 5. Luka Doncic had a less than stellar follow up to his magical Game 4. Doncic finished with 22 points, eight rebounds, and four assists. He shot 6-of-17 from the field and 1-of-6 from downtown. However, there was a bigger storyline involving the Mavs point guard outside of his performance in Game 5. In the third quarter of the contest, Clippers forward Marcus Morris Sr. was moving towards Doncic to guard him on an inbound pass. As he approached the Mavs guard, Morris stepped on his ankle which resulted in Doncic’s shoe coming off. It was the same ankle that the Mavs star injured earlier in the series.  NBA Twitter proceeded to analyze...

    Marcus Morris added a layer of controversy to the Clippers’ 154-111 win on Tuesday, whether he intended to or not.

    The NBA is in a thick soup as far as its viewership over the years is concerned. Recently, Kevin Durant took to Twitter to give his opinion on the possible cause of the dearth. But the Western Conference is not disappointing anyone, as the post-season has produced some eyeball grabbing rivalries. One such brewing enmity is between the LA Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks, who are locked at 2-2.  The Dallas Mavericks won their last outing against the Clippers in OT. The Mavs almost lost the match when Luka Doncic pulled a picture-perfect three-pointer and saved the game.

    Luka Doncic is not only the best 21-year-old player to ever compete in an NBA game, but maybe now he’s the best player in basketball.
