Last night the NBA gave us another great night of entertaining basketball. Watch the highlights here but it’s becoming more and more apparent that Luka Doncic could be the next great player in this league.
While the Mavericks lost again last night to the Clippers Luka showed out of course. He dropped his 4th straight triple-double notching 28/10/10 and was the only reason the Mavs were even in the game. Luckily the Mavs traded for Porzingis and actually do have help for Luka and won’t waste his talent as a certain team did to a player 15 years ago.
In this game near the very end, Doc Rivers asked for the mic and saluted Dirk Nowitzki as a great player. The entire Staples Center erupted into applause for Dirk, Clippers players did the same, and it was an incredible moment. When asked about the moment in the postgame presser, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle clearly appreciated Rivers’ gesture stating
One of the greatest things I’ve seen. It’s an original. I’ve never seen that. Doc is special. One of the people I respect the most. I know Dirk was touched by it- Rick Carlisle
