Luka Dončić 60-point triple double against New York Knicks

Dallas Mavericks star Luka Dončić is widely known as one of the best players in the NBA, but he topped his incredible standards with an unreal performance that broke a league record on Tuesday against the New York Knicks.

Dončić put up an absurd stat line of 60 points, 21 rebounds, and 10 assists in an improbable overtime win for the Mavericks.

Perhaps even more impressive than Dončić’s insane stat line was his clutch performance down the stretch of the game. Dallas trailed by nine points with less than a minute remaining in the game.

Dončić would go on to score ten points in the final minute of the fourth quarter, including an insane buzzer-beater off an intentionally missed free throw to send the game to overtime.

This type of comeback for Dallas is something that is truly a miracle. According to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon, NBA teams were 0-13,884 in the last 20 years while trailing by at least nine points with 35 seconds or fewer remaining.

While the Mavericks as a team certainly deserve their fair share of praise for this miraculous win, Dončić was very clearly the driving factor in the comeback.

His stat line of 60-21-10 is something that has never been done by any NBA player, and something that we truly may never see again.

After the incredible performance, Dončić said, “I need a recovery beer!”
