Mavericks star Luka Doncic was prepared for a drink after his 60-point masterpiece and late-game heroics propelled Dallas to an unbelievable 126-121 comeback time beyond regulation win on Tuesday evening over the visiting Knicks.
The 23-year-old Doncic, recent off dropping a historic 60-point, 21-rebound and 10-assist efficiency on the Knicks, didn’t sound like he was able to play an additional OT session throughout an on-court interview after the massive win.
“I’m drained as hell,” Doncic informed a sideline reporter after the sport. “I would like a restoration beer.”
Doncic was 21-for-31 from the sector (2-for-6 from the 3-point line) and was 16-for-22 from the free-throw line in his do-it-all outing.
“Even Wilt (Chamberlain) by no means had a 60-21-10, what the f*** Luka?” The Ringer’s Invoice Simmons posted as NBA Twitter went into meltdown.
As for a “restoration beer,” it’s the Knicks who actually may want one after blowing a nine-point lead with 33.9 seconds left in regulation.
In response to ESPN Stats & Data, NBA groups had been 0-13,884 within the final 20 seasons when trailing by at the very least 9 with 35 or fewer seconds remaining. Now it’s 1-13,885 after the Knicks’ debacle.
