Luka Doncic scored a career-high 51 points Thursday night in a win against the Los Angeles Clippers in Dallas.
Doncic joins former Mavericks Jim Jackson, Jamal Mashburn and Dirk Nowitzki as the Mavericks to have reached the 50-point plateau. Dirk is also still the Mavericks single-game scoring champ with a 53 point game back in 2004.
Anytime an NBA player scores 50 points, it’s pretty fun, but Doncic really started the show early and often. Only three other Mavericks scored in double figures, with the second highest scoring Maverick, Dorian Finney-Smith, finishing with 12 points.
