Doncic recorded 29 points (10-20 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 6-9 FT), nine assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block in Wednesday's win over Memphis.
Three of Doncic's 29 total points came unorthodoxly, as Doncic put up a wild shot at the buzzer with the Mavs down two with 1.8 seconds left and drained it. Moreover, it was the guard's fourth straight contest reaching the 27-point mark despite continuing to struggle from three. Over this past five outings, Doncic is shooting just 26.2 percent from deep which is well below his season average of 36.6 percent.
Doncic went for 32 points (10-20 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 10-11 FT), four rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 33 minutes Monday during the loss to the 76ers.
Though Doncic registered his 19th 30-point performance on the season, he was visibly frustrated after banking in a triple because of two airballs on previous shots. He has now gone 13 straight games without a double-double or triple-double, the longest such streak of his career.
Doncic mustered 29 points (10-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and a steal across 35 minutes in Sunday's loss against the Spurs.
Doncic ended three dimes away from a double-double, and while the 29 points are a strong performance in all formats, Doncic failed to deliver the eye-popping stats he has often posted all season long. For what is worth, Doncic has now gone 12 straight games without a double-double -- though he has regularly supplemented his elite scoring efforts with strong rebounding and passing stats.
Doncic registered 27 points (11-20 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-5 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists and one block in 36 minutes during Thursday's win over the Bucks.
The 22-year-old was a rebound and an assist away from his 10th triple-double of the season. Doncic has been on a roll over his seven games since returning from a back injury and non-COVID illness, as he's averaged 27.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 3.6 three-pointers in that span. The third-year guard should continue starting and playing 35-40 minutes per game the rest of the way for the seventh-seeded Mavericks.
Doncic put up 23 points (9-26 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block across 37 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Rockets.
Doncic might have finished just one rebound shy of putting up a double-double while recording his sixth straight game with 20-plus points, but he had a woeful shooting performance, particularly from long range. Such shooting woes aren't common for Doncic, and he should bounce back sooner than later, but he's the kind of player who can deliver a subpar shooting performance like this and yet still produce fantasy value across the board.
Doncic recorded 26 points (11-23 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-4 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and one steal Friday in a 99-86 win at New York.
New York's defense did a great job limiting Doncic until the fourth quarter. He finished it with 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting as Dallas torched New York on both ends. Doncic's usage makes him a formidable player no matter who he plays. However, Doncic's average of 5.0 turnovers across his past eight games could still be improved upon.
Doncic posted 36 points (11-15 FG, 7-11 3Pt, 7-11 FT), eight rebounds and five assists in Wednesday's win over Boston.
Dallas nearly blew a huge first-half lead, but the Mavs were able to hold on behind another monster night from their All-Star guard. Doncic was on fire from three-point range in the first half, and his seven total threes were his second-most in any game this season. Fantasy-wise, the only dings on Doncic's line were his eight turnovers, which tied a season high.
Doncic recorded 25 points (9-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and two steals across 28 minutes in Monday's 127-106 win over the Thunder.
Doncic showed no ill effects from the back injury and non-COVID illness that kept him out of action last weekend. Although he didn't post his typical numbers, the All-Star's services weren't required in this convincing win. He only played 28 minutes, which is his fourth-lowest total of the season.
Doncic (back, illness) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against Oklahoma City, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
A back injury and an illness have kept Doncic sidelined for the last two games, but it looks like he will return Monday. The return of the 22-year-old All-Star would send Jalen Brunson back to a bench role. Doncic had scored at least 35 points in three of his last four games prior to being sidelined.
Doncic (back, illness) is out Saturday against the Pelicans, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Doncic was initially questionable due to a back injury, but now he's also dealing with a non-COVID illness that will ultimately prevent him from playing. In his absence, Jalen Brunson should draw another start.
Doncic (back) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Pelicans.
Doncic sat out Friday's loss to the Pacers with back soreness, but he could return Saturday. That said, if he's out again, look for Jalen Brunson to draw another start.
Doncic (back) will not play in Friday's matchup with the Pacers, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.
No surprise here, as the Mavericks listed Doncic as doubtful heading into the evening. The team remains hopeful he will be able to return Saturday versus the Pelicans. In his absence, look for some combination of Jalen Brunson, Trey Burke and Josh Richardson to take on more playmaking responsibilities.
Doncic is doubtful for Friday's contest against the Pacers due to lower back tightness.
Doncic is likely to miss his fourth game of the season and his first since March 11. Assuming he's sidelined, Jalen Brunson, Trey Burke and Josh Richardson should take on more playmaking responsibilities.
Doncic scored 15 points (6-16 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in a 128-108 victory over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
This was an uncharacteristically bad game by Doncic's standards. The guard had a terrible first quarter, as he missed all four of his shot attempts and had three turnovers. The second quarter wasn't much better, but he was able to turn it around a bit in the second half, scoring 10 points in a span of 12 minutes. Doncic had been incredible in his first six games since returning from the All-Star break, averaging 30.8 points, 10.3 assists and 8.2 rebounds prior to Wednesday's contest. Look for him to get back on track Friday against the Pacers.
Doncic tallied 37 points (13-19 FG, 8-9 3Pt, 3-6 FT), seven rebounds and four assists across 30 minutes in Sunday's 132-92 win over Portland.
Doncic's stat line could have been even more impressive, but he sat out the fourth quarter as Dallas cruised to an easy win. The talented point guard was scorching from deep in the contest, drilling his first eight three-point attempts and finishing 8-of-9 from beyond the arc. Amid all of his other impressive stats this season, Doncic is shooting a career-best 37.1 percent from three-point range.
Doncic collected 38 points (15-27 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine rebounds, nine assists and one steal Friday in a 125-119 loss to the Trail Blazers.
The Mavericks suffered an unfortunate loss, though it cannot be attributed to Doncic's play. Doncic fell only one rebound or assist short from a double-double and could have earned a triple-double had he recorded double figures in both. Doncic's 38 points also marked his best scoring tally on the road this season. Doncic will look to replicate that success in a rematch Sunday at Portland.
Doncic had 42 points (16-28 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine assists, six rebounds, three steals and two blocks across 43 minutes in Wednesday's 105-89 win over the Clippers.
Doncic fell four points short of his season high, but he topped 40 points for the fourth time and added excellent complementary stats to finish with one of his best fantasy outings of the campaign. In four games since the All-Star break, Doncic has racked up 49 assists and 15 made three-pointers.
Doncic posted 25 points (9-23, FG, 4-11 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 16 assists, 10 rebounds and two steals across 38 minutes in Monday's 109-99 loss to the Clippers.
Doncic's 25 points led the Mavericks, although the Clippers were able to force some mistakes from the All-Star. He turned the ball over seven times in the loss, three more than his usual average. He'll try to rectify that issue Wednesday when he faces the Clippers again in the second half of the two-game tilt.
Doncic recorded 21 points (7-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 12 assists and five rebounds Saturday in a 116-103 win at Denver.
Doncic now owns 18 double-doubles across his 34 games played this season. The Mavs have won their past eight matchups in which he has achieved said feat. Doncic excelled more than usual with averages of 31.3 points, 11.0 assists and 8.8 rebounds across that eight-game span.
Doncic is not listed on the Mavs' injury report ahead of Saturday's game versus Denver.
Dallas held Doncic out of Thursday's matchup against OKC on the second night of a back-to-back, but all indications are that his absence was simply precautionary. Expect the MVP candidate to return to the mix Saturday night. In Wednesday's win over San Antonio, Doncic posted 22 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists in 39 minutes.
