After their 114-100 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic shared his thoughts on facing his idol LeBron James for the second time this season. He recorded 11 assists against the Suns but fell one rebound short of the mark, yet the 20-year-old still finished with 32.4 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 10.4 assists per game in November.
Doncic scored 16 points in the quarter as the Mavericks outscored the Lakers, 35-17. "We just need to keep it rolling". "Those step-back 30-footers, it's hard to describe how difficult the shot is, and how easy he makes it look". "So, we did good things and stuck together and it's a really good win for us". You've got to get up. Dallas Mavericks fans will see the highlights plus what Sunday's win in Los Angeles means going forward for the team and its star player. After a year of impressive moves by both franchises, the Mavs and Lakers are positioned to be back among the NBA's best. It matched the Lakers' lowest output in a quarter this season.
But after the Lakers got to within 10, Doncic did what he could to undo their progress.More news: Leaked PlayStation 5 dev kit photo hits the Internet

Overall, the Lakers shot 46.0 percent to 43.3 percent for the Mavericks. NL MVP Cody Bellinger and Dodgers teammate Kenley Jansen watched the game from courtside.
Doncic has been even better in his second season, one year after winning the NBA's Rookie of the Year award. Alex Caruso was the only other Laker to reach double figures in points, finishing with 10. L.A.is now headed out on three-game trip starting against a tough Denver Nuggets squad that will kick off a stretch of the Lakers playing eight of their next nine games away from Staples Center.
Vogel stayed with Davis and James to try to mount a comeback, but Doncic continued to carve up Los Angeles' defense.
