Mavericks’ Luka Doncic gets the foul and the crazy off-balanced one-leg flip shot to go

Luka Doncic

Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks was fouled yet managed to drain an off-balanced one-leg flip shot against the New York Knicks.

Check out Doncic’s crazy shot below per Dime:

In the 106-103 loss, Doncic finished with a triple-double: 33 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists. He shot 43.5 percent from the field, 25.0 percent from downtown, and 76.9 percent from the free-throw line.

The 20-year-old Slovenian has continued to impress the basketball world in just his second year in the league. So far, he has a total of five triple-doubles on the season — which is a great mark of his innate understanding of the game and how he can impact on multiple facets on the floor.

As of this writing, the Mavs have a 6-5 record in the ultra-competitive Western Conference. Head coach Rick Carlisle shared at the beginning of the season that their goal this year is to make the playoffs. It’s the most tangible goal for the Mavericks team who have yet to fully develop into one cohesive unit.

They are also still missing some key pieces, too. As to who and what type of these players are is a matter of wait and see. But it’s crystal clear that the focal point of the squad is Doncic, as well as 7-foot-3 center Kristaps Porzingis.
