A couple of hours after he was announced as “Player of the Month,” Luka Doncic set another record.

It took Luka Doncic 28 minutes to register a new career-high 18 rebounds to add to his 33 points and five assists and lead the Dallas Mavericks to a 118 – 97 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on the road.

“I felt like the ball was just coming into my hands after they missed,” he said. “I didn’t even know I had 18,” Doncic said on his new rebounding record per AP.

Doncic shot 9/13 from the field and 10/12 from the line as the Mavericks captured their third straight win to improve to 14 – 6. The Slovenian point forward’s performance came just few hours after the NBA announced he won the first “Player of the Month” in his career.

Maxi Kleber added 12 points and four rebounds off the bench while Kristaps Porzingis had seven points (2/11 shots) and seven rebounds for the Mavs.

Pelicans forward Nicolo Melli scored seven points and grabbed eight rebounds in 27 minutes.

In Washington, Evan Fournier dropped 31 points on 6/8 triples as the still Nikola Vucevic-less Orlando Magic defeated the Wizards 127 – 120. It was the third 30+ performance in the last four games for the French wing.

Davis Bertans had 21 points and five rebounds as a starter for the Wizards.

Clint Capela had a monster double-double of 22 points and 21 rebounds in the Houston Rockets‘ 133 – 135 double-overtime loss to the San Antonio Spurs. James scored 50 a few days after his 60-point performance.

Jakob Poetl contributed a career-high 15 rebounds plus six points and five assists to the Spurs‘ win. He also blocked Harden’s game-winning attempt with a second left in regulation.
