The Luka Doncic show | NBA

Foot to the metal, Luka Doncic helped ease Slovenia’s job to clinch their second win in two games. After Lithuania (92-85), it was Hungary who suffered the law of the leader of the Mavericks.

Luka Doncic started his match with an incredible sequence, a small bridge over Benedek Varadi to launch the counter-attack and a “no-look pass” for the alley-oop signed Vlatko Cancar. He then offered himself a big counter from behind before unfolding his usual offensive panoply, without neglecting the show, with a dunk and a 3-pointer from the logo.

“Even if I have been around him a little more directly for about two years with the national team, and despite the fact that I already knew him from before, of course his way of playing always surprises me”, said his coach, Aleksander Sekulic. “This is not just the case for us, but for everyone. The thing I like about him is that he doesn’t care if he plays Hungary or the Eurobasket final, he will give his all, put on a show, and in the right way. That’s what he did tonight, even when we were at +20, he played incredibly well. And if I had asked him to play the last five minutes, I’m sure he would have wanted to come back.

With 20 points at 8/11 on shots, 7 rebounds and 7 assists (but 5 stray bullets), all in just 19 minutes, it can be said that Luka Doncic did the job. Before facing France next Wednesday, Slovenia will challenge Bosnia and Herzegovina this Sunday and then Germany on Tuesday.
