Luka Doncic has been a real revelation in the NBA this season, having starred for the Dallas Mavericks thus far. The 20-year-old youngster is making waves in the national league, having broken some records in the last couple of weeks. Doncic was on fire last night as he helped the Mavs beat the James Harden-led Houston Rockets.
Luka Doncic on matchup up with James Harden: "Those matchups, they're big. Harden is a top three player in the league, and this was a big win for us."— Salman Ali (@SalmanAliNBA) November 25, 2019
Slovenia’s Luka Doncic registered 41 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists as the Mavericks made their way to a 137-123 win against the Houston Rockets on Sunday evening (Monday morning in India). In doing so, the Mavs’ guard became just the fourth player in the NBA league to record at least four consecutive 30-point, 10-assist games. The previous 3 players to do so were James Harden, Russell Westbrook and Michael Jordan. The 20-year-old has been on fire this season, which earned him some comparisons with the opposition's leader James Harden, who is on a hot streak of his own this year.
