Luka Doncic's Latest Pass Proves He's Not Human
Luka Doncic recorded his third triple-double in the Orlando bubble as the Dallas Mavericks downed the Milwaukee Bucks 136-132 over the weekend.
The 21-year-old scored 36 points while tallying up 19 assists and 14 rebounds while winning his running battle MVP frontrunner Giannis Antetokounmpo.
But perhaps his best moment came in the dying embers of the game.
Slovenian superstar Doncic proved, once again, why he's one of the NBA's hottest young prospects as he produced one of the passes of the season to set up Mavs big man Maxi Kleber.
With just over a minute left in the game, Kleber initiated a pick-and-roll and handed the ball off to the ever-dynamic Doncic.
Drawing two players with him (including the towering Giannis), Doncic then unleashed a defence-splitting, eye-of-the-needle dime that allowed his teammate to burst through and score.
The between-the-legs pass is the latest move in a growing catalogue of skills that the Mavericks star has at his disposal.

When asked how he pulled off the incredible pass, Doncic's response was both genius and hilarious at the same time.
"I don't know why I did it, I just did it," he simply said.
The Mavs are 3-2 in the bubble and Doncic has been largely responsible for that given his immense form.
The 6 foot 5 inch guard is averaging 33.4 points, 11.6 assists and 11.6 rebounds - and his performance against the Bucks was no different.
Doncic's passes led to 42 total shots against Milwaukee - the most recorded in an NBA game this season.
Incredibly, the average closest defender to a player Doncic had passed to was 5.99 feet away.
It goes without saying, but Doncic is a generational talent - both with and without the ball in his hands - who is in the process of transforming the Mavericks into genuine title contenders - if he hasn't already done so.
