NBA players past and present react to Mavericks star Luka Doncic’s record 60-point triple-double

Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic put in a historic performance on Tuesday night.

Doncic had the first 60-point, 20-rebound triple-double in NBA history when he led the Mavs to an improbable 126-121 overtime victory over the New York Knicks at American Airlines Arena in Dallas.

The three-time All-Star’s 60 points set a new franchise record.

Doncic was 21 of 31 from the field and 16 of 22 from the free throw line to surpass Dirk Nowitzki’s previous franchise record of 53 points. Nowitzki accomplished the feat in a game on December 2, 2004.

Nowitzki is the highest-scoring foreign-born player in league history. The 2023 Hall of Fame nominee currently sits sixth on the NBA’s scoring list, but the 23-year-old Doncic is on pace to surpass that mark one day.

Doncic is also now credited with the highest scoring effort of the season in the league.

Doncic’s masterful performance left his teammates, along with current and former NBA players, in awe and sparked a social media frenzy.

Mavericks player Christian Wood hit a 3-pointer to start the rally from nine points down in the final 30 seconds of regulation. Wood said he was sending a «GOAT» to Doncic’s farm in his native Slovenia.
