Luka Doncic 'good to go' despite reported illness

- by

A source told The Dallas Morning News on Friday afternoon that Luka Doncic is “good to go” despite the comments from TNT play-by-play broadcaster Kevin Harlan after Doncic’s Game 1 struggles on Wednesday night. Doncic, like the rest of his team, endured a poor shooting performance in the Western Conference finals opener. He scored 20 points and shot 33.3% from the floor, his lowest marks this postseason.

Nobody has ever won an NBA title with Luka Doncic’s usage rate. What is the history of high-usage stars in the playoffs, and can the Mavericks star break the mold?…1:21 PM

📅 On this day in 1995, the @Phoenix Suns Kevin Johnson had 46 points and 10 assists in a Game 7 loss to the Rockets in the conference semis.
Johnson is one of 10 players in NBA history to record at least 45p/10a in a playoff game, and one of only two to do so in a Game 7 (Luka Doncic). PM

I’m convinced that Luka Doncic is the Undertaker meme.
Luka is 21-5 after a loss this season and a ridiculous 20-6-0 against the spread, by far the best among NBA stars.
