Luka Doncic is rewriting record books in his sophomore season.
Doncic, 20, finished with a career-high 42 points and also recorded 11 rebounds and 12 assists in the 117-110 win over the Mavericks' interstate rival. He also helped secure the win with a dagger 3-pointer with just over 26 seconds remaining, which gave Dallas a five-point lead.
The win marks the league-leading sixth triple-double of the season for the Slovenian guard. Entering Monday, no player in the league had more than four. It was also the 14th triple-double of his young career, further cementing his hold on the record among players before turning 21.
Most triple-doubles before 21
