On Thursday, Luka Doncic led the Dallas Mavericks over the San Antonio Spurs with the 21st triple-double of his NBA career.
In 37 minutes of play, Doncic recorded 26 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds. He shot only 10-for-25 from the field and turned the ball over seven times, but the Mavericks outscored the Spurs by 14 points in the minutes he was on the court, giving him the third-best plus-minus on the team.
In the process, Doncic made franchise history by tying Hall of Famer Jason Kidd for the most triple-doubles by a player in a Mavericks uniform.

There's a huge gap between Doncic and Kidd at the top. Michael Finley has the third-most triple-doubles in Mavericks history with six, followed by Dirk Nowitzki, Mark Aguirre, Dennis Smith and Antoine Walker, each of whom had two during their time in Dallas.
After them? Shawn Bradley, Detlef Schrempf, Steve Nash, Rodney McCray and Raymond Felton with one each.
Doncic has 13 triple-doubles this season alone. It's the most in the league, LeBron James (12) and Nikola Jokic (11) being the only other players with 10 or more triple-doubles.
Is now a good time to remind you that Doncic is still two days away from celebrating his 21st birthday?
