Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic makes history once again with another incredible triple-double performance on Monday night. The 22-year old notched another triple-double in their 114-96 loss against the Cleveland Cavaliers matching the great Oscar Robertson's record that no one else has done before.
Luka's 25-10-10 evening was his 38th career triple-double, tying The Big O's record of most triple-doubles before turning 23 (via StatMuse). What's more interesting is that Doncic still has a few months left to break Robertson's record given that he'll only be turning 23 come February 2022.

Breaking these types of records isn't anything new to someone like Luka Doncic. The young Slovenian has quickly cemented his spot as one of the best young stars in the league when it comes to these all-around performances. The two-time All-NBA First Team Member has been an absolute wizard when it comes to the rock and has made basically everything happen for the Mavericks franchise ever since he entered back in 2018.
It's only his fourth season in the NBA but Doncic has already been climbing the triple-double ladder. More importantly, Doncic's unbelievable numbers don't come empty-handed. His impressive form as Dallas' court general has helped the team achieve new heights as he was able to push the Mavs to back-to-back playoff appearances these past few seasons.
This year, Doncic is hoping to do the same. With a new coaching staff and a few fresh faces around him, look for the former ROTY to keep piling on these numbers as he tries to help the Mavs book a trip to the 2022 NBA Playoffs.
