Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks have made it to the second round of the playoffs after calling it a wrap for the Utah Jazz. Now they are going all in and against of the Devin Booker-led Phoenix Suns in the western conference semi-finals. But unfortunately, Luka Doncic is seen helpless many times during the match-up as the team is currently having no other star or even a young gun to rely on except Jalen Brunson but he isn’t consistent. They are also a small-sized team since the departure of Kristaps Porzingis to the Washington Wizards. All these factors have the young all-star alone and struggling as the team is down 0-1 to the Phoenix Suns.
The Phoenix Suns hosted the Dallas Mavericks at Footprint Center for Game 1 of the series. The game was closely contested and head to head but the Suns were the better ones as they had guys to rely on for making and taking shots or even doing the role of a decoy. While on the other hand, it was just Luka Doncic going god mode and trying to get the job done on both the ends. It was a hard-earned and important dub for the Suns. As the final box score stands at 114-121 favoring the Phoenix Suns.
In the game, Luka Doncic dropped 45 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 assists. He had the best stat line compared to any other player. But the second-best scorer from the Mavericks was a role player Maxi Kleber who came off the bench and got 19 points with 1 rebound. So Luka Doncic being frustrated and irritated was expected as we all know him. A video clip of him lashing out at his teammate Josh Green (2 rebounds only) also stands viral on the internet.
