It’s no mystery — Luka Doncic is clutch.
To this point in the season, the Dallas Mavericks have relied on Doncic to be and do everything on the offensive side of the ball.
Currently, Doncic ranks sixth in the NBA in clutch field goals made, but he leads the league in clutch assists with 23 and sits No. 5 in clutch rebounds with 30.
“He’s special,” Jason Kidd said after Doncic’s 60-point performance against the New York Knicks. “The history of the game is written by the players, and he’s doing something that has never been done before.”
Because of the heavy role Doncic plays in Dallas’ success, he will always be in contention for one of the league’s most clutch players. Already in his career, he’s amassed numerous memorable moments.
It started with his game-winner in the NBA bubble against the LA Clippers. Since, Doncic has collected game-winners over the Boston Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies, and a host of other NBA teams. Yet, being clutch doesn’t come down to just game winners — Doncic makes winning plays with the game in the balance.
In the second half of games, Doncic averages 15.4 points per game 4.3 rebounds, and 4.5 assists. Success for Dallas flows through Doncic. It’s good that he is miles better than most stars when it comes to converting in the clutch.
