Since Luka Doncic made his Mavericks debut, he's given Dallas fans something to be excited about since his rookie season. On Sunday, Luka gave fans another first when he became the first NBA player to score or assist on 77 points in a playoff game 7. Luka also has 5 playoff games during which he has scored 40 points or more. By comparison, it took Magic Johnson well over 100 playoff games before he scored more than 40 points 4 times.
