NBA Twitter & Players React To Luka Doncic’s Insane 73-Point Game


After Tuesday night’s NBA action had Joel Embiid score 70 points, and Karl-Anthony Towns 62, it was Luka Doncic and Devin Booker’s turn to step up on Saturday, marking just the fifth time in league history that two players scored 60 points or more on the same day.

Just like Embiid and Towns, Doncic and Booker had different outcomes for their teams. The Dallas Mavericks took full advantage of Doncic’s incredible night, winning 148-143 against Atlanta. On the other hand, the Phoenix Suns couldn’t capitalize on Booker’s 62-point game and ended up losing 133-131 to Indiana.

Doncic finished the night with 73 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists – the most points by anyone in NBA history not named Wilt Chamberlain or Kobe Bryant (and on par with David Thompson).


“Those names are special, man,” Doncic said after the game. “It’s unbelievable. I just feel special to be in that conversation with them.”


The All-Star made 17-of-20 two point shots, 8-of-13 three’s, and 15-of-16 free throws, marking the most effective 60+ point game in NBA history with a ridiculous true shooting percentage of 91.2.



Interestingly enough, his game to remember happened in his former NBA home, even though it only was ‘home’ for a couple of minutes. Doncic was initially chosen by the Hawks in the 2018 NBA draft, but his draft rights were later traded to Dallas for Trae Young and a first-round pick.

NBA Twitter, as well as NBA players reacted accordingly and were in awe over Luka’s record-performance.
