Luka Doncic, fueled by grit and determination, powered the Dallas Mavericks to a 112-104 comeback win over the Washington Wizards on Monday night. Despite missing five minutes due to a charge and stitches, Luka Doncic delivered a monster triple-double: 26 points, 15 assists, and 11 rebounds, his 10th of the season.

Luka Doncic triple-double prowess

He is now ninth in NBA history with 66 career triple-doubles, leaving his mark on the league's record books. His impact was tangible in the fourth quarter, where Dallas outscored Washington 34-16. Doncic ignited the comeback, scoring six straight points after rejoining the game and propelling the Mavericks to a 103-98 lead.

Doncic's leadership extends beyond stats. He inspires his teammates to elevate their play. Just ask Daniel Gafford, acquired from Washington in a recent trade. "My role is to set picks for Doncic," Gafford said, acknowledging the maestro orchestrating the offense. "He's a playmaker, and I need to get out of the way sometimes."

While Luka Doncic stole the show with his triple-double, Kyrie Irving chipped in with 26 points, and newcomer Gafford had a double-double (16 points, 17 rebounds, 5 blocks). Their contributions were crucial in securing the win.

Doncic Fuels Mavs' Fifth Straight Win

The Wizards, unfortunately, couldn't keep pace. Despite Deni Avdija's career-high 25 points and Kyle Kuzma's 23, they fell short. Their seven-game losing streak continues, a struggle they hope to overcome under interim coach Brian Keefe.

This victory marks the Mavericks' fifth consecutive win, their best streak of the season. Doncic's triple-double heroics were instrumental in turning the tide. With his talent and leadership, the Mavericks look poised for a strong finish to the season.
