Luka Doncic is getting ready for his debut in the NBA playoffs and is expecting a tough matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The superstar of the Dallas Mavericks believes the Clippers will be aggressive defensively and the referees will call things differently.

“We’re going to get hit in these playoffs. Not going to get the same calls, so you’ve just got to play through it and you know, just be as physical as they are.

It’s a big, big challenge for us. It’s my first playoffs, KP’s first playoffs. We’re just going to show what we’ve got … be physical, and I think we’re ready,” Doncic said, per Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News.

Game 1 between the Mavs and the Clippers will take place on Monday night.
