Luka Doncic stats: What are his numbers with Dallas Mavericks?

Luka Doncic stats: Luka Doncic, the six-foot-seven Slovenian point guard, is gaining steam in his quest to be recognized with the greats when his brief NBA career comes to an end. What makes this so astounding is not just how successful he has been in such a short period of time, but also the names of the players he is being acclaimed alongside and ahead of.

Doncic has excellent size for the position he plays and possesses a nearly full offensive skill set since entering the NBA. He’s been compared to LeBron James, James Harden, and Larry Bird, not just because they have similar skills, but also because he has a propensity for winning. He plays the game like a veteran and has one of the NBA’s highest basketball IQs.

Luka Doncic came to NBA at the age of 19

Doncic debuted in the NBA in 2018 as one of the most highly hyped young European players in recent memory, despite being only 19 years old. Doncic was drafted third overall by the Atlanta Hawks in 2018 and then traded to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Trae Young’s draught rights and a protected first-round choice in 2019.

Rookie Luka guides Slovenia to their first national title

Instead of spending his formative years in college basketball, he was one of the finest players at the 2017 EuroBasket, helping Slovenia to its first national title, as well as being named 2017-18 season MVP with Real Madrid in Spain’s Liga ACB – perhaps the world’s second-best basketball league. In addition, he guided Real Madrid to Liga ACB and EuroLeague titles in the same 2017-18 season, with a league-high ‘performance index rating’ of 21.5 in the latter.

He made his professional debut for Real Madrid at the age of 16 years, two months, and two days, becoming the club’s youngest player and the third youngest in Liga ACB history. While he only appeared in five games in his rookie season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.2 rebounds in 4.8 minutes per game, that playing time at the age of 16 appears to have been critical in his early growth.

NBA Rookie of the Year

It’s no wonder that he stormed to the NBA Rookie of the Year award at the end of his debut season with the Mavericks. In only his second start with the Mavericks, Doncic produced 26 points and six rebounds in a 140-136 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, becoming the franchise’s youngest 20-point scorer. Flash forward nine days to the Mavericks’ game against the Spurs, when Doni upped the ante with 31 points and eight rebounds, matching his first 30-point performance in the NBA. Doncic got his first NBA triple-double at the age of 19 years and 328 days, just 10 days older than Markelle Fultz, who was the youngest player to do it.

Luka Doncic has spent five seasons with the Mavericks. In 324 regular-season games, he averaged 27.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 8.0 assists. He was chosen to play in three All-Star games and was named Rookie of the Year.

Most Triple-Double in the Mavs history
