Luka Doncic lets go of the team he wants to beat at all costs

A competitor at heart, Luka Doncic however appreciates winning against certain teams even more. One of them is also the subject of a real obsession on his part! We know one who has scores to settle …

Absent for a few days due to an ankle and knee problem, Luka Doncic still make a comeback for a crucial game against the Clippers. This was also saving for the Mavs, since the ROY 2019 was essential in the success of his people at Staples Center (112-104 after extra time). With 26 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists, we can say that he was present!

At the same time, difficult to see him miss this meeting after being injured for the first round against the Angelinos. Asked by Tomer Azarly after the victory, Halleluka did not hide it: winning against them has a special flavor for him. In fact, the Slovenian did absolutely everything to be dressed that night, just because it was about them!

Luka Doncic obsessed with the Clippers

It’s always special. I really wanted to play this game, to win it at all costs. That’s why I have to say that the medical staff did a great job, everyone helped me, every day. We made it happen. As I said this morning, we will do our best to play this game. I felt great after my nap and was ready to go.

When we know the liabilities between El Matador and the Sailboats, this is hardly surprising. Indeed, Doncic regularly stumbles on the Californians in the playoffs, the latter having eliminated Dallas twice in a row in the playoffs, moreover in the first round. In addition to that, the player regularly crosses swords with Marcus Morris, who is guilty of several big faults against him. A real rivalry, therefore!

Nevertheless, all the memories against LA are not bad for the No. 77 who was able to show against them that he was already part of the world top. There was in particular this buzzer beater from elsewhere to win Game 4, in 2019-20. And then of course, they are the ones who took his post-season points record on the muzzle last June, with 46 units. The kind of matches that make you a future legend:

It’s a fact, Luka Doncic is boiling hot every time the Clippers appear on his team’s schedule. See you on February 11 and 13 for the next episode between them!
