Manu Ginobili took to Twitter and praised Luka Doncic for his incredible performance vs Argentina in the Tokyo Olympics opener.

Doncic went for a game-high 48 points (18/29 shooting, 12/15 from two-point range and 6/14 from beyond the arc), leading Slovenia to the triumph over the Argentinians (100-118).

For his part, Ginobili, an NBA and Argentina legend, had nothing but good words for Doncic, who already had 31 points at halftime, calling him a ‘beast’.

Doncic and Slovenia will now face host Japan on Thursday, while Argentina will battle Spain.
