Luka Doncic was ice-cold from three-point range in Game 4. But the Dallas Mavericks frontman didn't need to be the one making them.

While Doncic went a putrid 1-for-10 from beyond the arc, he did directly influence the hot shooting night of Mavs teammate Dorian Finney-Smith. The floor-spacing forward tallied eight triples, the most in his career, regular season or playoffs.

Finney-Smith had five three-pointers at the half, which was already the most in his playoff career. Four of them were assisted by Luka Doncic. He revealed what the Mavs star told him at the half that led to the most significant performance of his postseason career.

Via Brad Townsend:

“When I had 5 three, Luka said, ‘“You’re about to get some more.’ When LD says you’re going to get more threes, I figure you’re going to get ‘em,” said the Mavs forward.

Dorian Finney-Smith finished with 24 points, the first time he eclipsed the 20-point mark in 23 playoff games in a Mavs uniform.

An empowered performance from a Mavs role player is just the kind of impact Luka Doncic has on the team. Even when he isn't making his shots, going 9-for-25 from the field, he can dish out 11 assists and contribute to winning all the same.
