Luka Doncic once again made the headlines with his eleventh triple-double of the season against Toronto on his birthday, in Dallas’ 136-125 victory.

Luka Doncic has been making the exceptional look easy for some time now. At the end of January, he scored 73 points – the fourth-most in NBA history – in Dallas’ 148-143 win over Atlanta. On Wednesday, his 25th birthday, he again led the Mavericks to victory over Toronto (136-125).

The point guard scored the eleventh triple-double of his NBA season (the 67th of his career in the North American league). Aided by the Mav’s other star, Kyrie Irving (29 points, 3 assists), particularly in the final quarter, Doncic scored 30 points and added 11 rebounds and 16 assists.

In Colorado, Nikola Jokic kept pace with the Slovenian. Against Sacramento, the Serbian giant also scored a triple-double, his fourth in a row and 18th of the season. Jokic scored 14 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and dished out 11 assists in Denver’s 117-96 win. Jamal Murray was the Nuggets’ leading scorer with 32 points (13 out of 15 shooting).
