Doncic dominated his opponents from the outset Wednesday, outscoring the Warriors - who had only eight players available - by himself in the opening quarter, 22-16. He exited the contest in the third quarter with 35 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds.

The sophomore finished the first frame with 22 points, five assists, and five rebounds to become the first player since Allen Iverson to outscore, out-assist, and out-rebound an entire team in the same quarter.

Doncic is only the second player in the last 15 seasons to put up at least 20 points, five assists, and five rebounds in a single quarter, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

He's also the youngest player with consecutive 35-point triple-doubles, according to ESPN Stats & Info. Oscar Robertson was previously the youngest at 22 years and 34 days old when he accomplished the feat in December 1960.

The 20-year-old entered Wednesday's contest with eye-popping per-game averages of 29.5 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 9.3 assists.

Meanwhile, Golden State's 48 point-defeat is the franchise's worst loss since 1972, according to Basketball-Reference.

Doncic's latest awe-inspiring performance helped improve Dallas' record to 9-5. Golden State dropped to a Western Conference-worst 3-13.
