Following Friday night’s Game 3 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, Luka Doncic’s chances to suit up for the Dallas Mavericks in Game 4 didn’t look good. Doncic suffered an ankle injury that forced him to leave the game early and had him hobbling out of the arena.

But not only did Doncic play in Game 4; he put together an absolutely remarkable performance to lead Dallas to an upset, series-tying victory over the Clippers.

Doncic put together a triple-double (something he’s been known to do), with 43 points, 17 rebounds, and 3 assists in a 135-133 win for the Mavericks. Dallas trailed by 21 at one point.

And Doncic saved the best for last, with this stepback game-winning triple to beat the buzzer in overtime.

Now, the 21-year-old will try to lead the Mavericks to a stunning series lead. Game 5 is on Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET (TNT) in the Orlando bubble.
