Luka Doncic passes Jason Kidd for most triple-doubles in Mavs history with 22.
Per ESPN, The second-year star scored 30 points and broke Jason Kidd’s franchise record for career triple-doubles with his 22nd, helping the Mavericks hold off the New Orleans Pelicans 127-123 in overtime Wednesday night.
The nationally televised matchup between Doncic and Williamson lived up to the hype. Doncic had 17 rebounds and 10 assists, and his 3 with 1:10 to play in overtime snapped a 118-118 tie and gave the Mavericks the lead for good.
And he did it with a nagging thumb injury that required X-rays after the game.
“It hurts, but you’ve got to get through it,” Doncic said. “You’re probably going to get hit every game, almost every game, so you’ve just got to fight through it.”
