Before basketball was played Saturday night, there was brief pregame fun, a meetup of three old buds: Luka Doncic, his father Sasa Doncic and actor/comedian/singer Jamie Foxx. Well, “old” is relative. Foxx explained to The News that the threesome sat together on Thanksgiving in Jerry Jones’ suite and gabbed while watching the Cowboys-Raiders game in AT&T Stadium. They reunited on the American Airlines Center court as Luka Doncic warmed up for what would prove to be an entertaining night, albeit a 120-114 Washington victory in which Luka scored 33 points and dealt 10 assists.
Sasa Doncic, a bear of a man at 6-foot-7, grinned as he got a hug and handshake from Terrell-native Foxx, but that wasn’t the only reason Papa Doncic was smiling. He told The News that he’s happy his son is a Maverick. “More than happy,” Sasa amended. Why? “Because I saw his smile and I thought, ‘He’s satisfied,’” Sasa said. “And me as a father, I’m the happiest man in the world when you see your child is happy.”
What’s your opinion of what KP and Luka have been able to do as a tandem this year? Cuban: It’s chemistry. I think the whole team chemistry is great. The dynamics are different than last year. Like I said earlier, communicating with players is different now, and I think Nico and J-Kidd, they get in there and they’re fortunate. They get a fresh start. They get to define their relationship based off of how it starts as opposed to how things have changed over the decades.
Storyline: Doncic-Porzingis Dynamic
As Luka Doncic walked past Dallas Mavericks coach Jason Kidd in the Staples Center hallway late Tuesday night, the All-Star smiled through the fatigue of his 41 minutes logged in his first game back from knee and ankle injuries. But the Mavericks star could not have felt any better because he was back in his element, hitting tough 3-point bombs, nearly putting up a triple-double and having some fun at the LA Clippers’ expense. Returning from a three-game absence, Doncic had 26 points, nine rebounds and nine assists as the Mavericks held off a furious comeback from the Clippers to take a 112-104 overtime win. “I was tired,” Doncic said with a chuckle. “And overtime in the first game back, it was tough. But we got a win. That’s all that matters. I was happy.”
