Luka Doncic's historic 60-point triple-double lifts Mavericks past Knicks in wild comeback  Doncic Makes NBA History – Luka Doncic is at it again. The Dallas Mavericks superstar dropped a historic 60-point triple-double in a wild 126-121 overtime win over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night. Doncic’s statline is impressive enough. He scored a career-high 60 points, 21 rebounds and 10 assists. It was a franchise scoring record and it made Doncic the youngest player in league history to have a 50-point triple-double. He’s also the only player to have a 60-point, 20-rebound triple-double.  How he ended the fourth quarter was truly ridiculous. Doncic and the Mavericks erased a nine-point Knicks lead in 33 seconds to force overtime, thanks to a big late 3-pointer from Spencer Dinwiddie and then a heroic final shot from Doncic. That shot came after Doncic intentionally missed a free throw and then somehow grabbed the rebound and put it back in himself. The Mavericks then pushed ahead quickly in overtime, holding the Knicks to just two free throws in the first four minutes of the extra period, to complete the comeback and grab the five-point win. Doncic had seven of Dallas’ 11 points in overtime, which got him to 60 on the night. Read more at:  (Ryan Young/Yahoo Sports)
