Luka Doncic has switched to an upper gear right from the start of the season. After 22 games he leads the NBA in scoring with 33.4 points per game.
In addition, the Slovenian superstar is averaging 8.5 rebounds and 8.5 assists in 36.8 minutes per game. Needless to say that he is the driving force for the Mavericks.
However, head coach Jason Kidd does not think that Doncic’s current run is sustainable for a full season.
“For 82 games, it’s no way that he can play at this level, the usage is just way too high,” Kidd told Yahoo Sports last week. “No one can. You know, the things that we ask him to do on the offensive end and then asked him to defend on the other end. It’s a lot.”
