Luka Doncic, a star for the Dallas Mavericks, made NBA history on Tuesday night. With averaging 60 points, 21 rebounds, and ten assists, he led the Mavericks past the New York Knicks 126-121 in overtime.


Doncic became the first player in league history to compile a triple-double of at least 20 rebounds and 60 points, joining James Harden as the only other player to accomplish it.


Stephen Silas, the head coach of the Houston Rockets, saw Doncic’s performance against the Knicks as evidence of his development.


Silas remarked, “It was great. “His scoring is increasing as a result of his improved free-throw shooting.


“His passing ability has always set him apart from the competition; now that he is scoring, it is impossible to prepare for or defend against him.”


During Doncic’s first two seasons, Silas supported former Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle as his principal assistant. Doncic, a 2019 Rookie of the Year winner, has given Silas credit for his growth.


The Rockets’ three-game road journey comes to an end on Thursday night when they take on Doncic and the Mavericks. The start time inside the American Airlines Center is 7:30 PM CT.


Houston lost to the Mavericks Friday night in the Toyota Center, 112-106. Jabari Smith Jr. added a career-high 24 points, and Doncic finished with a game-high 50 points.
