To be fair to Golden State Warriors big man Jonas Jerebko, he just got beat on a switch and was late in his recovery, so this wasn’t really an embarrassing moment for him.
But this is just another example of how dangerous Doncic is on offense.
Going into Saturday’s game against the Warriors, Luka Doncic was averaging 18.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 1.2 steals over 32.4 minutes per game while shooting 43.4 percent from the floor, 36.2 percent from three-point range, and 76.6 percent from the free-throw line.
Even Doncic’s biggest fans in Slovenia probably did not expect this type of production from him in his rookie year.
The 19-year-old was selected by the Atlanta Hawks with the third overall pick in the draft back in June, but the Hawks then traded him to the Mavs for Trae Young and a future pick.
Luka Doncic finished the game with 19 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block for the Mavs. The Warriors won this affair but not by a huge margin, 120-116.
