Another game, another Luka Doncic masterclass.
With each game, Doncic continues to put up mind-boggling numbers that just make it difficult to believe that he is just 20 years old. A couple of days after leading the Dallas Mavericks to a 48-point win over the Golden State Warriors, Doncic powered the Mavericks to a 42-point win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In this one, he put up 30 points, 14 assists and seven rebounds on 11-of-18 shooting in just 28 minutes of action. In his time on the court, he

Doncic scored or assisted on 25 of them.
On the season he's scoring or assisting of 67% of the Mavs made buckets when on the floor.
This season, Doncic is scoring or assisting on 67% of his team's made field goals, more than LeBron James has ever recorded His seven-game streak of scoring 10 or more points in the first quarter was snapped but he continued to make and break records with this game.

He became the eighth Maverick in franchise history to score 30 or more points in three consecutive games and the first since Dirk Nowitzki (2010), who was in attendance.
In the last 11 games, including this one, Doncic has not recorded double-digit rebounds and assist just twice. Here's a look at his last 11 games:
The Luka show is breaking individual and franchise records. During this stretch, the Mavericks have gone 7-4, including a four-game sweep of their recent homestand.
Tonight's win marked the first sweep of a homestand of 4-or-more games since the championship season in 2010-11, when the Mavs swept a 4-game homestand at the @AACenter from 1/25-1/31/11.- Mavs PR (@MavsPR) November 23, 2019

With the spectacular show Doncic has put on over the last few home games, the Mavericks' next games will be an interesting test for the 20-year-old. The team's next four opponents are the Houston Rockets, LA Clippers (home), Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Lakers.
