Luka Doncic lights up Kings with triple-double in overtime win

Luka Doncic put up a ridiculous stat line to help Dallas get its first seeding game win.

The Dallas Mavericks entered Monday 0-2 in the bubble, but Luka Doncic made sure his team got a win against the Sacramento Kings by putting together one of the best games of his career in a 114-110 overtime win.

Doncic tallied 34 points, 20 rebounds, and 12 assists to amass 83.5 DKFP. He’s notched two triple-doubles in his last three games and hasn’t dipped below 60 fantasy points in the bubble. While his sky high numbers could be being bolstered by him facing poor defensive backcourts, he’s doing it all for Dallas, which has clinched the seventh seed in the Western Conference.

Doncic didn’t do it all alone, as Dorian Finney-Smith surprisingly chipped in with 16 points and 16 rebound to tally 38.5 DKFP. Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. contributed 22 points apiece.

De’Aaron Fox has been on fire in the bubble and didn’t slow down against Dallas. He only trailed Doncic in DKFP with 49.25. He racked up 28 points and nine assists. Bogdan Bogdanovic had one of the worst games of his career and shot 1-for-15 from the field, but a double-double from Nemanja Bjelica and 21 points from Buddy Hield off the bench helped the Kings make up for his poor shooting.
