LUKA. DONCIC.

The Dallas Mavericks All-Star guard was listed as a game time decision for Game 4 after spraining his ankle in the team's Game 3 loss to the LA Clippers. With the fear of going down 3-1 in the series, Doncic battled through the pain to try and even the series.

It didn't appear that his ankle bothered him much as the 21-year-old set the Internet on fire with a historic playoff performance capped off by an exhilarating game-winning step-back jumper.

Doncic would finish with a video game stat line of 43 points, 17 rebounds and 13 assists to give the Mavericks a 135-133 victory to bring the series to 2-2.
