Luka-Mania was in full effect once again on Wednesday.

In the Dallas Mavericks' 104-94 win over the Phoenix Suns, Luka Doncic scored a game-high 30 points on 8-for-14 shooting from the field and 10-for-16 from the free throw line. The rookie sensation also grabbed six rebounds, dished out five assists and came up with three steals in his 35 minutes of action.

Doncic got the game started with 12 points in the first quarter. He scored four more points in the second quarter to bring his point total to 16 for the half, but it wasn't enough to prevent Dallas from trailing 50-46 entering the break.

The Mavericks then used a 16-2 run in the third quarter to swing the game in their favor, going from a seven-point deficit to a seven-point advantage. They held on to their lead the rest of the way.

Doncic scored his 30th point in the final minute of the game, doing so with his signature step back.

This was Doncic's fourth 30-point game of the season. His career-high came on Dec. 28 when he scored 34 points against the New Orleans Pelicans.

T.J. Warren led the Suns with 20 points in the loss. Deandre Ayton finished the game with six points on 1-for-7 shooting from the field, his fourth-lowest scoring output of the season.
