Luka Doncic recorded his eighth triple-double of the season on Tuesday with a performance of 21 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists against the Suns. The Slovenian sensation moved up to the third position of most triple-doubles by a rookie, passing Magic Johnson, per Basketball-Reference.

It was a special night overall for the Mavs in the last homecourt game of the season, since Dirk Nowitzki announced his official retirement after 21 seasons in the team. Dirk posted 30 points in his farewell game, leading Dallas to the victory.
