Dallas Mavericks: Luka Doncic named finalist for Rookie of the Year

Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic had an unheard of rookie season. He became the first rookie since 2011 to average over 21 points per game. Luka also became only the second rookie ever to average over 20 points, seven rebounds, and five assists per game. He is also only 20 years old.

Doncic’s stat line stands out as well. He averaged 21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 2.3 3-pointers made, and 1.1 steals per game in 32.2 minutes a night. As a 6’7 lead ball handler, Luka is becoming one of the most difficult covers in the NBA.
