Luka Doncic has 42-point triple-double, Mavs top Spurs
DALLAS — Luka Doncic scored a career-high 42 points in his sixth triple-double of the young NBA season and the Dallas Mavericks sent the San Antonio Spurs to their sixth straight loss, 117-110 on Monday night.
Dallas led wire to wire but had to fend off a late Spurs rally, needing every bit of Doncic’s huge performance.
The 20-year-old second-year player leads the NBA in triple-doubles after finishing with 11 rebounds and 12 assists to go with the biggest shot of the game, a 3-pointer with 26.5 seconds to play that put the Mavericks up 115-110. Doncic joined LeBron James as the only players in NBA history younger than 21 to have a 40-point triple-double.
