NBA: Dallas Mavericks win thriller after mega comeback – legendary Luka Doncic breaks records with 60-point triple-double

Legendary, there is no other way to sum up Luka Doncic’s performance against the New York Knicks! The Mavs star led Dallas to a wild comeback win for the history books with a 60-point triple-double. In the end, the Texans won 126-121 in overtime.

Dallas Mavericks (19-16) – New York Knicks (18-17) 126:121 OT (BOXSCORE)

33 seconds were still on the clock in regulation time, the Mavs actually looked like the definite loser with a 9-point deficit – then it got really crazy! Dallas started a 12-3 run in those 33 seconds with Luka Doncic icing on the cake. The Slovenian intentionally missed a free throw, got his hands on the offensive rebound and sunk an insane throw for overtime straight from the socket.

Several free throws from Doncic, a block from Christian Wood, plenty of free throws missed by the Knicks and finally a fade from the Mavs superstar put Dallas on the road to overtime victory. The Knicks were visibly exhausted, and the guests were certainly demoralized after the bitter end to the regular season. Dallas won overtime 11-6, earning one of the craziest wins of the year.

Doncic’s stat line for the record books ended up being: 60 points 21/31 from the field (2/6 hat-tricks, 16/22 FT), 21 rebounds and 10 assists. He is the only player in NBA history to record a 60-point triple-double with at least 20 rebounds. His point total was not only a personal career high, but also a Mavs record. “I’m dead tired. I need a beer to relax,” was his first conclusion with a big smile. “We were a bit lucky. But it was a great win for the team.”

He was helped by Spencer Dinwiddie, who scored 12 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter. Wood had 19 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocks. Solid Quentin Grimes (33, 7/16 threes), Julius Randle (29, 18 rebounds) and Mitchell Robinson (20, 16 rebounds) were the Knicks’ best performers, Isaiah Hartenstein scored 5 points in 12 minutes. Jalen Brunson was unable to play in his former home country due to a hip injury but has received a moving video tribute.
