Oh, look, it's another impressive game from Luka Doncic. It seems the Dallas Mavericks star has spoiled us all with how he nonchalantly puts up notable numbers every night.
Doncic led the Mavericks over the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night, 116-86, posting a double-double of 33 points and 11 assists on top of seven rebounds and two blocks. In the process, the do-it-all guard achieved another laudable feat.
According to ESPN Statistics & Information, Doncic notched his 32nd game with at least 30 points and 10 assists, tying NBA legend Oscar Robertson for most in league history before turning 23 years old. Yep, not even NBA icons Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson can touch them on this.

Ever since entering the NBA, the 22-year-old Doncic has proven that age is just a construct for him. His competitiveness and desire to be among the game's elite have helped him carve out an already-established career.
It's quite fascinating as well that Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young is also not too far behind on the list. To recall, Doncic and Young were traded for each other on draft night in 2018, and their inclusion on the 30-10 list only cements the fact that their careers will always be intertwined.
The Mavericks won their third straight game to improve to 32-23 and Doncic has been putting up monster numbers over the past few days.
Up next for the Mavericks is the first of two home games in three days against the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night.
