Riley Thompson, Digital Media Editor

Luka Dončić, a Slovenian professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks, recently made history by scoring a career-high 60 points in a single game against the Milwaukee Bucks. The game, which took place on April 4, 2021, was an impressive display of Dončić’s skills and determination, as he led the Mavericks to a thrilling comeback victory. At just 22 years old, Dončić is already one of the most talented and accomplished players in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He has been named an All-Star in each of his first three seasons and has won numerous awards, including the NBA Rookie of the Year and the NBA Most Improved Player. 

Dončić is known for his exceptional court vision, ball-handling skills, and shooting ability, and has a reputation for being a clutch performer in high-pressure situations. The 60-point game was a testament to Dončić’s ability to take over a game and will likely go down as one of the greatest performances in Mavericks history. It was also the highest-scoring game of the 2021 NBA season and the third-highest scoring game in Mavericks history. Dončić became just the seventh player in NBA history to score 60 points in a game before turning 23, joining an elite group that includes Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James.
