Doncic on blocking Gilgeous-Alexander: “Next year, All-NBA Defensive Team”

Luka Doncic made a key defensive stop during the Dallas Mavericks’ Game 5 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, blocking Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in transition late in the fourth quarter.

The Slovenian superstar, who dominated offensively with 31 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds for his sixth career playoff triple-double, was asked about the block after the game.

In a post-game interview, Doncic humorously remarked, “Next year, All-NBA Defensive Team.” He added, “No, the ball escaped a little bit for him. So that’s why I got the block.”
