His Dallas Mavericks may have come up short against the visiting Sacramento Kings on Sunday, but second-year dynamo Luka Doncic continued to carve out his place in NBA history.

The Slovenian sensation dropped 27 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds in the outing, breaking Michael Jordan's record for consecutive games with at least 20 points, five rebounds, and five assists since the ABA-NBA merger, according to Elias Sports.

Here's how the leaderboard looks after Sunday's game:

Rank Player Start End Streak
1 Luka Doncic Nov. 1 2019 TBD 19 games
2 Michael Jordan Mar. 13 1989 Apr. 14 1989 18 games
3 Russell Westbrook Feb. 9 2015 Mar. 20 2015 17 games
4 Russell Westbrook Dec. 15 2017 Jan. 13 2018 16 games
5 LeBron James Feb. 25 2018 Mar. 25 2018 15 games

Doncic has a ways to go to break the all-time streak, which includes stats collected prior to the 1976 ABA-NBA merger. Oscar Robertson had two streaks longer than 19, including the record of 29, according to Elias Sports.

In any case, Doncic's season averages now sit at 29.9 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 9.2 assists per game.
