SAN FRANCISCO – A game against the Golden State Warriors was record breaking for the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavs set a franchise record for three-pointers made in a game (they were 24-of-51 from 3-point range) and Luka Dončić registered his ninth triple-double of the season and didn’t even play the fourth quarter. The Mavericks beat the Warriors 141-121.

The Rookie of the Year from Slovenia scored 31 points, 12 rebounds and 15 assists in just 30 minutes. This was his 17th career triple-double. With his ninth triple-double of the season Dončič tied the franchise record set by Jason Kidd in 1995-96. 20-year old sensation is also the youngest player in league history to put together multiple 30-point, 15 assists games in a season – the previous record-setter was Michal Jordan, who was 22 years old.
Luka Dončić is the first player in @NBA history to log 30+ points, 12+ rebounds and 15+ assists in a game with 30-or-fewer minutes played.
Dončić is also the first player in history to record multiple 30-point triple-doubles of any kind in his career with 30min or fewer played. pic.twitter.com/FxJKSoZNKa
