Luka Doncic combined 19 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for his third 2018-19 triple-double. Still three weeks away from his 20th birthday, the Slovenian sensation kept on setting teenager records leading the Dallas Mavericks to their 99-93 home win against the Charlotte Hornets.

Nikola Jokic notched his tenth triple-double of the season on Wednesday. The Joker ended up with 25 points, 14 boards and 10 assists, but wasn’t enough for the Denver Nuggets at the Barclays Center against the Brooklyn Nets that grabbed the 135-130 victory.

Giannis Antetokounmpo fell one point short of his NBA career-high piling up 43 for the Milwaukee Bucks in their 148-129 home win against the Washington Wizards. Tomas Satoransky put up a 16-point, 10-assist double-double in the high-scoring affair.

Rudy Gobert also scored a double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds for the Utah Jazz in their 116-88 home win over the Phoenix Suns. Lauri Markkanen finished with 30 points and ten boards, but the Chicago Bulls lost 125-120 to the New Orleans Pelicans.

Tony Parker (back) was sidelined on Wednesday. Besides the 36-year-old point guard, Nikola Mirotic (right calf), Thabo Sefolosha (right hamstring), Clint Capela (right thumb), Kristaps Porzingis (left knee) remained on their team’s injury list.
