Luka Doncic Becomes First Player Since Michael Jordan With at Least 30 Points in First Six Games of the Season
The Mavs are currently 3-3 despite Doncic’s shooting.
Luka Doncic continues to prove that he is not only a European superstar but a well-seasoned veteran on the court. The Slovenija player is only in his fifth season of the NBA and currently holds a stunning record, matched with the GOAT, Michael Jordan.
The 23-year-old has shown time and time again that he can play at an MVP level, recently garnering much praise from fans and critics alike for defeating Brooklyn Nets duo Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. The young mav recently scored 44 points in the victory over the Orlando Magic, now matching Jordan with the stat of scoring 30 or more points in the first six games of the season.
The feat is major as Jordan is widely considered one of the greatest scorers in the game, leading the list with 10 scoring titles to his name. However, despite his success, the Mavericks currently hold a record of 3-3. The Dallas Mavericks play against the Utah Jazz next on November 2.
Luka Doncic just became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1986-87 to score at least 30 points in his team’s first six games of the season, per @ESPNStatsInfo.
Doncic did it by halftime tonight vs. Magic.
