Luka Doncic is special and he showed it in the best basketball stage of the world, the NBA playoffs. Luka Doncic became the first ever player to average 30/8/8 in his first playoff career run.

Doncic was unable to lead the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference semifinals, but he surely made some memorable highlights in his debut postseason run.

The Slovenian superstar finished the series averaging 29.8 points, 10 rebounds and 8.6 assists. He shot 49% from the field and 34.3% from beyond the arc.

A first-time All-Star this season, Doncic set the stage for even bigger accomplishments in the future. Doncic recorded two consecutive triple-doubles in the series, while he made a winning buzzer-beater play in Game 4.

The Mavericks didn’t have the defensive firepower to confront the Clippers, but they definitely are going to make some noise in the next few years.
