The 23-year-old dropped 60 points, 21 rebounds, and 10 assists, making him the first player in NBA history with a 60/20/10 game.
To make Doncic’s outing even more impressive, he was very efficient (21-for-31 from the field), and he led his squad to a miraculous win over the New York Knicks in overtime.
After the game, folks on Twitter had plenty to say, with the Mavericks superstar receiving endless praise from tons of people in the basketball world.
Boston Celtics legend Kevin Garnett made sure to chime in.
He believes that Doncic will have a statue in Dallas one day.
It’ll be another statue in Dallas… Luka is like that!

With the way Doncic’s career is going, Garnett’s prediction seems extremely reasonable.
Despite having less than five seasons of NBA experience under his belt, Doncic is already arguably the best offensive player in the entire league.
And he’s just getting started.
Not Going Anywhere
The Mavericks have Doncic under contract through the 2026-27 season.
As long as he’s with the organization, the team is going to have a chance to do some amazing things.
Getting him a stronger supporting cast has to be Dallas’ No. 1 priority.
Doncic led the league in usage in both the 2020-21 and 2021-22 campaigns, and this season, his usage rate is even higher than it was in either of those two seasons.
He’s carrying a massive load — and he’s doing an admirable job — but he’s going to need some help if the Mavericks want to win their first NBA title since 2011.
