Luka Doncic went off for 45 points as the Mavericks lost against the Suns in Game 1 of the second round series. Dallas head coach Jason Kidd was asked about the performance of the Slovenian superstar.
“He got whatever he wanted,” Kidd said postgame. “When you look at the shots in the paint, behind the arc, mid-range and then also I thought he got his teammates some great looks that normally have made. But I thought he played great.
“We didn’t play him the whole game. Again, in that fourth quarter those guys started to get a rhythm and started to play a little harder. But I thought he played great.
“I know he’s going to look at those turnovers and say they could be better, but he did everything to help his team in the position try to win on the road.”
