Doncic has been impressing everyone this season with his numbers and game. Recently, he just achieved a milestone to score 45+ points in 3 of 4 games, and that too with 15 rebounds and 10 assists.
Numbers clearly show that the Mavericks man is in top form and is one of the contenders of NBA MVP this season. However, Nikola Jokic, Ja Morant, Joel Embiid, Giannis and Kevin Durant are also in the race with some mind-blowing numbers and performances. On the other hand, even at the age of 37, LeBron James has been single-handedly carrying Los Angeles Lakers.
Embiid as of now is the top scorer of points per game with 29.8 points per game. Harden’s move to the 76ers will also give a massive boost to Embiid and 76ers.
But it will be interesting to see how far the Mavericks go this season. What are your views on this, do let us know in the comment below.
