Luka Doncic had a long summer where he participated in the Tokyo Olympics, after a long NBA season that ended late in July.
The Mavs’ superstar admitted he has work to do regarding his conditioning after the loss to the Brooklyn Nets. He has also admitted that he probably took it a little too easy after the Olympics and lost his conditioning.
“I had a long summer. I had the Olympics, took three weeks off, relaxed a little bit. Maybe too much. I’ve just got to get back on track,” Doncic said, per ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.
Dallas experienced many ups and downs since the start of the season having an 11-12 record so far. He’s averaging 25.5 points, 8.5 assists, and 7.9 rebounds.
However, his efficiency is down shooting 44.4 percent from the field and 32.5 percent from beyond the arc. He’s also down on his free throw shooting, making them in just a 69 percent clip.
