Luka Doncic became the second-fastest NBA player to reach 35 career triple-doubles, trailing only Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson.
The slovenian star ended the game against the Wizards with 31 points, 12 rebounds and a career-high 20 assist.
Mavs’ coach Rick Carlisle (via nba.com):
“I thought Luka’s poise down the stretch was spectacular,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “He just was very, very focused, he made every single right play and fittingly got the last rebound off the Beal miss.
“Everyone expects greatness from him every single night. And just think about it — at 22 years old and having that kind of expectation put on you every night. But he’s an amazing player and does an amazing job absorbing all of that.”
