We all knew a Luka Magic apperance in Doncic’s fourth season would simply be a matter of when, not if.
The first flash finally appeared Saturday night when Doncic drained a game-winning three-pointer to lift the Mavericks over the Celtics, 107-104.
Fourth-quarter Doncic has become bad luck for Boston lately. In two home games against the Celtics this calendar year, Doncic has nailed two game-winning, buzzer-beating 3-pointers. The latest capped his best offensive performance of the season — 33 points, nine rebounds and five assists on 12 of 21 field goals — and helped the Mavericks stave off the Celtics’ late upset threat.
Relive the magical moment with videos showing the buzzer-beater from alternate angles and see reactions from across the sports world:

Sometimes Luka just takes my breath away with the things he does. That was an incredible shot. All that pressure, clock winding down, defense in his face. My, my, my.
