Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic has made NBA history by becoming the first player to record six consecutive 30-point triple-doubles, while the Mavs won 142-124 over the hapless Detroit Pistons.

Before the Mavericks faced the Pistons, Doncic was already in the midst of several historic streaks. Doncic had tied Russell Westbrook’s record with five consecutive games with a 30-point triple-double, while his streak of 4 consecutive games with 35-point triple-doubles had already set a record, according to Stat Muse.

The Slovenian finished with 39 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, as well as 3 steals and 2 blocked shots in the win over the Pistons.

“This shows what level he is playing at right now.”, said Mavericks coach Jason Kidd, who also called Luka’s current run “as rare as Picasso’s,” according to Yahoo Sports.

In an up-and-down first half battle, Doncic scored 26 points, including 21 in the second quarter. Interestingly, he seemed enthusiastic about the “Luka Sucks” chants from Pistons fans.

Luka Doncic’s latest triple-double was the 72nd of his career, placing him 9th on the all-time triple-double leader list.

After Saturday’s game, Doncic’s season averages are now 34.7 points, 9.0 rebounds and 9.8 assists per game in 56 games played.
