The Dallas Mavericks have a chance to make a lot of noise this year in the Western Conference.
But, they can only go far if Luka Doncic will carry them.
Doncic is easily one of the best players in the NBA, and that’s because of his elite scoring and plays.
His dominance has been on display through the first three games of this season.

The last player to post those numbers in the first three games was Russell Westbrook in 2016-17.
That was the same year Westbrook averaged a triple-double and won league MVP.
Not only is he their favorite scorer, but he also leads them in rebounding and assists per game.
His game to start this season has him on the short list of MVP candidates.
On any given night, Doncic is a triple-double waiting to happen.
So far this season, Doncic is shooting the ball well from the field (50% FG).
But, his 3-point shooting has yet to peak (25%).
Despite that, the 23-year-old is averaging 34.7 points per game, which would be a career high.
After losing Jalen Brunson in free agency, it will be interesting to see if Doncic can take on a bigger scoring load for his team.
The Mavericks have a chance to return to the Western Conference Finals this year if Doncic can stay healthy.
His usage rate this season could be the highest in the league, but it has to be for Dallas to succeed.
