Luka Doncic recently scored a career-high 42 points and triple-double while playing the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night. Doncic, who is currently without a shoe deal, wore the new 'Sour Patch Kids' UA Curry 7s. Before Doncic was drafted third overall in the 2018 NBA Draft, he wore Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Low shoes while playing in the Euro League. The Slovenian player has previously tried everything from Kobe 4 Protros to Curry 7s. Stephen Curry replied to a post about Doncic wearing the 'Curry 7s', saying that he likes Doncic's style.

The Mavericks defeated the Spurs 117-110, and Doncic recorded 42 points, 11 rebounds, and 12 assists to become the second player under 21 to record a 40-point triple-double. He was also the first Maverick to score a 40-point triple-double. Doncic is now a part of the MVP race, averaging at 28.5 points, 10.7 rebounds, 9.1 assists, and 1.3 steals per game. On the other hand, Curry has been sidelined for at least a few months after going through a surgery for a broken left hand, which he injured while playing the Phoenix Suns.
