The Dallas Mavericks rested All-Star guard Luka Doncic ahead of Wednesday’s matchup with the 2-12 Houston Rockets, causing him to skip a game for the first time this season.


Only Wilt Chamberlain’s 23-game streak from 1962–1963 is more extended than Doncic’s nine straight 30-point games for the Mavs to start the season.


The Los Angeles Clippers were defeated 103-101 in a close game after the Slovenian scored 35 points and played for 40 minutes.


With an average of 34.4 points per game and a field goal percentage of 49.7%, Doncic leads the NBA in scoring this season. Luca Doncic has scored 30 points or more in all but two of the 8-5 Mavericks’ 13 games.


In his second year in the NBA, the 2019–20 season, the 23-year-previous old’s season-best average was 28.8 points per game.


Additionally, this season, Doncic has averaged 8.8 rebounds, 7.8 assists, and 2.1 steals per game.


Houston, Dallas’ future opponent, has the poorest record in the NBA and is coming off a three-game losing streak.
