Luka Doncic was named Western Conference Player of The Week averaging 37 ppg, 8.5 rebounds, and 11.5 assists per game while leading his team the Dallas Mavericks to a 4-0 record for the week. Luka has been playing extremely well throughout the entire season and is proving his case for potentially winning MVP this season. Let’s not forget to mention that while Luka was on this amazing stretch this passing week that he made history by being the youngest player in NBA history (20 years, 269 days) to record at least 30 points and 10 assists. The youngest player before Doncic breaking that record was previously held by Oscar Robertson (22 years, 34 days). Not only did he break the record of being the youngest player to record a 30-point, 10-assist effort, but he also became the second-youngest player in NBA history to record a 40-point triple-double after recording a career-high 42 points to go along with 11 rebounds and 12 assists. Also, following that amazing performance by Luka he followed up by breaking yet another record by recording the fastest triple-double in NBA history with a time of 25 minutes and 30 seconds scoring 35 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists. All in all, Luka Doncic deserves the praise that he is getting and it does not appear that he will slow down anytime soon.
