Luka Doncic OWNS Game 4 Against the Clippers Without Porzingis
Emerging Superstar Luka Doncic Shows Complete Dominance in Buzzer Beater Victory
There aren’t enough emphatic attributes to describe Luka Doncic. His stepback game is reminiscent of James Harden. His physical attributes are deceiving, and his pace with the ball can be defined as methodical. To make a long narrative quick, Luka is only 21 years old and is already on route to maturing into an all-time great. Each time he graces the hardwood, it’s compelling, must-see television.

Luka Doncic Owns Game 4
Doncic, on a bad ankle, ripped through the Clipper defense. With 43 points (18-31 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 17 rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, and one block in 46 minutes during Sunday’s 135-133 Game 4 overtime win. Plus, a step back, isolation three-point buzzer-beater.
Listed as a game-time decision, he was often detected grimacing at times throughout the game. However, he continued to completely dominate the Clippers, who feature some of the NBA’s most elite wing defenders. Simply put, he was incredibly poised, and offensively unstoppable.
Game 5 Hopefuls
Heading into game 5, the Mavs are hoping to be able to have Kristaps Porzingis back in the lineup. However, KP will undergo an MRI today and has not been completely ruled out of game 5.
The Mavs will need all the firepower that they can get in order to topple the west coast giant known as the Clippers. But, with Doncic at the forefront, Mark Cuban and the Mavs are in good hands for a very long time.
Lights Out Luka
With the way he is playing, Luka is not only the future of the NBA, but he is also the now. Placing a team on your back at the NBA level is no simple feat. Particularly facing a team that most pundits had winning the NBA finals before the season even started.
