Doncic is also the king in Mexico: 41 points, 8th triple-double

The Slovenian base also added 12 rebounds and 11 assists. The Mavericks beat the Detroit Pistons and add their best balance since 2014.


Luka Doncic also dominates in Mexico. The Dallas Mavericks, with another Slovenian record show, beat the Detroit Pistons (111-122) and added their 17th win in 24 games: it's their best balance at this point in the course since the 2014-15 season. In that course, the Mavs reached 50 victories and fell in the first round of playoffs against the Houston Rockets. We do not know what will happen to the present Texan team from here until the end of the campaign, but one thing is clear: they are no longer a surprise, they are a disturbing reality for the rest of the West's rivals and the qualifying rounds must be a priority objective . Nothing of a dream. Being in the top eight of his Conference is an obligation after this start of the season ... and having the best young man who has seen the American League since LeBron James.

Or maybe longer, because Doncic's thing starts to be unreal. An illusion created by Matrix so that we lose our heads. Every game that the Slovenian jumps to the track breaks some historical cap. Some maximum set by those NBA totems that he saw when he was a child in Ljubljana or even when he was not born. The excanterano of Madrid finished with 41 points (6 of 13 from the triple), 12 rebounds and 11 assists against the Motown. With only 20 years and 288 days, he reached his 8th triple-double of the season in 24 games. The same amount he did last year in 72. His more than 40 goals is the highest score ever achieved in an official game in Mexico. Also the first-triple. Not bad.

And that's just the beginning. The Slovenian international was again the handle of his team. The alpha and the omega. The beginning and end of the Mavs, who even in the best of their dreams thought they would find such a fast and reliable replacement of Dirk Nowitzki. Mark Cuban must still be laughing remembering the night of the 2018 draft when the Atlanta Hawks accepted the pickup exchange.

Luka Doncic

Doncic's performance, let's continue, linked his 20th encounter with at least 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. The Oscar Robertson record of 1965 is still far, nine duels, but who already knows with this boy, really. Everything is possible. As it shows that no one else in history has achieved seven triple-doubles away from home before their 21st birthday. Magic and LeBron stayed in six. Nor has anyone, ever, done two triple-doubles with 40 points before that age. The King himself made one. Ah! And all that in just 34 minutes, the same as a Seth Curry that was Dallas' other offensive weapon in the Aztec country. Stephen's brother left at 30 with another 6 of 9 from long distance.

An insulting amount of artillery to which Porzingis joined. The Latvian, with a 0 out of 5 out of three, signed 20 goals and 8 rebounds to accompany his other two teammates in a key victory before starting a friendly tour against Eastern Conference teams: Miami, Milwaukee, Boston, Philadelphia and Toronto . Bucks, Sixers and Raptors, far from Dallas. A series of meetings that began with these Pistons that move a little further from the playoffs and that endured the rhythm of their rival until the beginning of the second quarter. From there, everything went cloudy: from 58-51 they went to 58-71 in five minutes, riding between that second period and the third. Drummond, who was doubtful about an allergic reaction to an avocado, reached 23 points and 15 rebounds, while Rose managed 19 with 5 hits out of three in 10 attempts.
