Doncic, 60 points, 21 rebounds, 10 assists… It’s not a computer game record
60 points, 21 rebounds, 10 assists. The figures are not from NBA computer games. It is an amazing record created by Dallas Mavericks’ “basketball genius” Luka Doncic (23) on the real court. Doncic is the first NBA player to achieve a “triple double” with an amazing number of △ 60 points or more △ 20 rebounds or more and 10 assists or more.
Doncic led his team to a 126-121 victory by performing a “one-man show” for 47 minutes until extra time in the 2022-23 NBA regular league home game against the New York Knicks at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on the 28th.
Doncic was responsible for about half of the team’s score (126 points), team rebounds (47 points), and team assists (20 points). He threw six 3-pointers and scored only two, but he threw 31 field pitches (67.7%) and 16 free throws (72.7%) out of 22. If the game had ended in the fourth quarter, he would have finished with 53 points, 18 rebounds, and 10 assists, but the game continued to extend, and Doncic made a thrilling reversal and new history at the same time. 파워볼사이트
Doncic became the second player to score a triple double with 60 points. Earlier, James Harden recorded 60 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists in 2018 when he was with the Houston Rockets. There are only two “50 points, 20 rebounds, and 10 assists” except Doncic. Legendary center Wilt Chamberlain recorded 53 points, 32 rebounds, and 14 assists in 1968, and Elgin Baylor recorded 52 points, 25 rebounds, and 10 assists in 1961. Half a century later, Doncic raised the standard to 60 points.
Doncic’s performance was more brilliant because he led the reversal. Dallas was dragged 99-108 a minute before the end of the fourth quarter. There was not enough time to reverse the nine-point gap, but Doncic did not give up and started the attack. Fifteen seconds before the end, he won an offensive rebound and completed a three-point play, catching up to 109-112.
He assisted Spencer Dinwiddy’s three-point shot 9.1 seconds before trailing 109-113, and got a free throw four seconds before the end, two points behind 113-115 and two points behind. Doncic, who scored the first ball, deliberately missed the second ball and aimed for an offensive rebound. As he calculated, he won the ball when a rebound fight took place in the air and immediately connected it with a shot to create a 115-115 tie. Doncic also scored seven points in overtime to lead the team to victory. Doncic said after the game, “It’s too hard. “I need beer to recover,” he said, inducing laughter.
NBA stars also praised Doncic’s all-time performance on social networking services (SNS). “There will be another statue in Dallas,” Kevin Garnett wrote, referring to the statue of Dallas legend Duck Nowitzki. Reggie Miller described it as “Luca Magic” and Faugal as “an unbelievable reality.”
Dallas (19-16), who has won four consecutive games, rose to sixth place in the Western Conference. New York (18 wins and 17 losses), which gave up the game due to Doncic’s brilliant performance, ranked sixth in the Eastern Conference.
