Luka Doncic recorded a 35-point, 10-rebound double-double as the Mavericks shocked the Suns 123-90 in Game 7 to advance to the Western Conference Finals.
Game 7 of the Dallas Mavericks–phoenix suns was arguably the most important game for Luka Doncić in his short-lived career so far. Playing against the team with the best record that too at their home, it is pretty safe to say that the Slovenian youngster thrives under pressure in these hostile environments.
Putting up a staggering 35-point, 10-rebound double-double, along with 4 assists and 2 steals, on a remarkable 63.2/54.5/100 shooting split, Luka led the Mavericks to a monstrous 123-90 Game 7 win over the ailing Chris Paul-led Suns.
