Is it luck or skill? According to Luka Doncic, his full-court basket was just a result of… practicing it a lot.

To the surprise of no one, this was another EuroLeague night full of headlines made by potential no. 1 pick in the NBA Draft Luka Doncic.

And not only because of his game-winning display in the “Clasico” against Barcelona, but also because he hit an insane buzzer beater from the other of the court.

“I’ve practiced this kind of shot with (Fabien) Causeur and (Facu) Campazzo in training sessions,” Doncic said after the game and looking very serious about it. “But (in the game) you shoot it because you have to. Sometimes you make it and that’s it.”

The Real Madrid player didn’t manage to make a single practice prior to the game due to a fever. What was the secret to performing so well? “I like basketball. I love basketball and I get strength from this.”

“It was a tough game. So we are happy with the victory,” he added.
