The brilliance of Luka Dončić should not be surprising at this point, but from time to time, he by some means manages to placed on a magical performance that surpasses his previous feats.

Dončić made history on Tuesday night, setting a Dallas Mavericks franchise record with 60 points while adding a career-high 21 rebounds and 10 assists to guide the team to a 126-121 time beyond regulation win over the Recent York Knicks at American Airlines Center. It is also the primary 60-point, 20-rebound triple-double in NBA history.

The Mavs needed every little bit of Dončić’s magic despite facing a Knicks team that was without point guard Jalen Brunson due to a hip injury and lost RJ Barrett within the opening seconds to a finger laceration.

Dallas trailed by nine points with 33.2 seconds left in regulation but outscored Recent York 12-3 down the stretch to force time beyond regulation. Dončić put within the game-tying basket on an improbable tip-in off a missed free throw.

NBA Twitter was left in awe after Doncic’s special performance, as he showed why he’s among the many favorites to win NBA MVP this yr:

A reminder that Luka is probably the most expert player we have ever seen at this age. What he continues to do on a nightly basis doesn’t seem real.

Dončić has now topped 50 points twice in his past 4 games, which have all been victories for Dallas. The Mavericks are hoping for an additional deep playoff run after last yr’s trip to the Western Conference Finals, and they’ll proceed to ride their superstar player so far as he can carry them.

Dallas (19-16) will go for its fifth straight win when it hosts the Houston Rockets (10-24) on Thursday.
