Being a star means you are getting way more attention from the opposing defence. Luka Doncic is learning that first hand and the Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle is not happy with how the referees let that happen.
“They’re beating the s— out of him. He’s handling it well, but teams are taking liberties with him. It isn’t right.”
Despite physical defence, Doncic has just dropped 39 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and dished 10 assists in a loss to the Hornets.
