Luka Doncic scored 26 points, dished out nine assists and grabbed six rebounds in the 130 – 84 blowout win of Dallas Mavericks over the New Orleans Pelicans.

Doncic didn’t even need to play in the fourth quarter to register the above numbers and tie a unique NBA record. When he notched 20 points, five rebounds and five assists in the match, the Slovenian point forward tied Michael Jordan for the longest (18) streak of matches with at least 20 points, five rebounds and five assists since 1976 (the NBA/ABA merger), per information by Mavericks.

Oscar “Mr. Triple-Double” Robertson is the only other player in NBA history who has had such a streak.

Serbian center Boban Marjanovic posted his first double-double of 2019-2020 by scoring 15 points and grabbing 16 rebounds off the bench, both season highs. Latvian big man Kristaps Porzingis added 13 points plus five boards and German forward Maxi Kleber seven points.

J.J. Redick scored a team-high 15 points from the Pelicans. Italian forward Nicolo Melli stepped on the court for nine minutes and went scoreless after attempting two shots.
