Luka Doncic was incredible in Sunday's Game 4 overtime win over the Clippers, playing through a sprained left ankle to post 43 points, 17 rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers on 18-of-31 from the field, including the game-winning step-back three at the buzzer.
Not bad for a guy who was a game-time decision. This is a simply legendary performance from Doncic, who led the Mavs back from a 21-point deficit in the first half and pulled off a huge comeback with Kristaps Porzingis (knee soreness) out of action. The Clippers have a handful of versatile defenders but Doncic got pretty much whatever he wanted all day long aside from a few late-fourth possessions against Kawhi Leonard. Luka is already a true superstar and the Mavs have stolen momentum in a series that's now knotted at two. With today's game he became the ninth player ever with consecutive playoff triple-doubles and joined Magic Johnson and LeBron James as the only players to record multiple postseason triple-doubles at 21 or younger. Doncic put the exclamation point on the best game in the bubble so far.
