Luka Doncic in history. The Dallas Mavericks point guard was one of the strong men of his team’s victory tonight against Oklahoma (104-102), achieving his third triple-double in five games (20 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds) . Better, it is the 41st triple-double of the Slovenian career in just three and a half years on the NBA floors.

A data shared by his trainer. « He has to keep shooting. That’s all. We’ve seen Curry, the best shooter in the world, not hit all his shots, » Jason Kidd said, defending his player. This success against Oklahoma on Martin Luther King Day, a very important day in the United States, allows the Mavericks to post a positive balance sheet (25 wins, 19 losses) and to remain in 5th place, directly qualifying for the play -offs at the end of the season.
