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.
