Doncic added 12 assists and eight rebounds, just missing his first career triple-double. At 19 years, 317 days, he is the youngest player with at least 25 points and 10 assists in a game since LeBron James (19 years, 95 days) did it in 2004. Doncic is the second rookie in Mavericks history with at least 25 points, 10 assists and five rebounds in a game, joining Jason Kidd (April 11, 1995). “That’s what he does so far for us,” said longtime Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki. “He’s been a great closer for us.”

“I think for us, there is nothing more that we can do. We’ve done it. The city has done it. This franchise had done it. The coaches have done it. My teammates have done it. We’ve done our job. The best way to recruit somebody is to just be yourself over the course of the year, and I would assume that he knows what is here and what makes this place special,” VanVleet said at the team’s first media availability since winning the NBA title. “If it’s enough than it’s enough. If it’s not then it’s not. … We would all love for him to be back and if he’s not then we will move on from there. It’s not the biggest deal in the world. He came here and did what he was supposed to do. So he brought this city a championship and I think he has earned his freedom and his career to do what he wants to do and we’ll all respect him and admire him.”
