Doncic scored eight points (3-14 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding six assists, five rebounds and three steals in 24 minutes before being ejected from Saturday's 111-99 loss to the Pacers.
The rookie was sent packing after picking up his second technical foul in the third quarter, and his frustration and poor shooting can be credited squarely to the suffocating defense of Victor Oladipo. Doncic ended up posting his worst numbers in over a month -- he last scored in single digits Dec. 10 against the Magic -- but the teenage sensation could face another tough matchup Monday on the road against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks.
Doncic scored a game-high 25 points (10-21 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding eight rebounds, eight assists and a steal in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 105-101 loss to the Spurs.
He was mostly a one-man show for the Mavs -- no other Dallas player scored more than 13 points or dished more than three assists on the night, and Doncic tied Harrison Barnes for the team lead in boards as well. The rookie has drained multiple three-pointers in 14 of the last 16 games, averaging an impressive 23.9 points, 6.7 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 3.1 threes and 1.2 steals over that stretch.
While Doncic's outside shooting paled in comparison to his counterpart at point guard, Stephen Curry (11-for-19 from distance), the rookie still held his own in a touch matchup. Doncic is averaging 28.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 3.3 three-pointers and 1.8 steals in 34.5 minutes per game over his last four contests and should continue to benefit from a bump in usage while Dennis Smith (back) is sidelined.
Doncic scored a team-high 29 points (10-23 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 7-10 FT) while adding 12 assists, eight rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes during Friday's 119-115 win over the Timberwolves.
The rookie fell just short of his first career triple-double, but it seems only a matter of time before Doncic gets one given the impressive array of skills he's already flashing in the NBA. The Mavs continue to run their offense through the teenage phenom while Dennis Smith (back) is sidelined, and with J.J. Barea (Achilles) now likely lost for the season as well, Doncic's ability to distribute could get even more of a workout in the second half.
Doncic scored a game-high 30 points (8-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 10-16 FT) while adding six rebounds, five assists and three steals in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 104-94 win over the Suns.
The teenage phenom continues to flash his all-around skills. Doncic has now scored 30-plus three times in the last dozen games, a stretch during which he's averaging 23.3 points, 6.7 boards, 4.8 assists, 3.0 three-pointers and 1.2 steals. Given his ability to get to the free-throw line -- he's attempted double-digit FTs five times in those 12 games -- his 68.4 percent shooting from the charity stripe in that span could use some work, but there's no reason to think the 19-year-old won't address that relative weakness in the years ahead.
