VIDEO: Luka Doncic Hit a Legendary Dagger on the Clippers

Luka Doncic, on a bum ankle and without Kristaps Porzingis, drained a three-pointer to beat the Los Angeles Clippers to even their playoff series at 2-2. The Mavs were down by 21 points at one point today, and Doncic finished the game with 43 points, 16 rebounds, and 13 assists.

Here’s another angle of the shot:

There aren’t really enough superlatives to describe his performance. Any time he drove to the bucket it felt like he would contort his body and hit a shot from an odd angle, if not pick up an and-one in the process. We’ll never hear him admit it, but one wonders if he had an extra chip on his shoulder after Montrezl Harrell called him a bitch-ass white boy earlier in the series.

This felt totally like an arrival game for Doncic on his ongoing ascent towards greatness and it looks like it’ll be a matter of when and not if we see him doing this on an even grander stage.

  1. I watched Luka yesterday for the first time because Whitlock was writing about him. He was really good. But also he had at least 3 air balls of fade away 3’s just like the game-winner.
