Luka Doncic needs ‘a recovery beer’ after wrecking Knicks
Mavericks star Luka Doncic was ready for a drink after his 60-point masterpiece and late-game heroics propelled Dallas to an improbable 126-121 comeback overtime win on Tuesday night over the visiting Knicks.
The 23-year-old Doncic, fresh off dropping a historic 60-point, 21-rebound and 10-assist performance on the Knicks, didn’t sound like he was ready to play an extra OT session during an on-court interview after the big win.
“I’m tired as hell,” Doncic told a sideline reporter after the game. “I need a recovery beer.”
Doncic was 21-for-31 from the field (2-for-6 from the 3-point line) and was 16-for-22 from the free-throw line in his do-it-all outing.
As for a “recovery beer,” it’s the Knicks who really might need one after blowing a nine-point lead with 33.9 seconds left in regulation.
According to ESPN Stats & Info, NBA teams were 0-13,884 in the last 20 seasons when trailing by at least nine with 35 or fewer seconds remaining. Now it’s 1-13,885 after the Knicks’ debacle.
