Luka Doncic is not happy.
The Dallas Mavericks star had another big playoff game, but he didn’t get much help from his teammates. Doncic was visibly frustrated, so much so that he confronted a fan who heckled Doncic with “reckless” language.
The incident occurred at halftime. Doncic was walking back to the Mavericks’ locker room when he stopped to confront a fan wearing a Devin Booker jersey.
Team officials stepped in to restrain Doncic so the situation would not escalate.
Fan interaction with players is at an all-time low. The best thing Luka can do is try to win Game 3.
Dallas Mavericks coach Jason Kidd has delivered a similar message after both games so far in the Western Conference semifinals: Luka Doncic needs a lot more help against the top-seeded Phoenix Suns.
Dallas wasted another brilliant offensive performance by Doncic in Wednesday’s Game 2, when he scored 35 points on 13-of-22 shooting in a 129-109 loss as the Suns seized a 2-0 series lead. The Suns repeatedly targeted Doncic defensively while scorching the Mavs for 71 points in the second half.
“He had a great game, but no one else showed,” Kidd said. “We’ve got to get other guys shooting the ball better. We can’t win with just him out there scoring 30 a night — not at this time of the year. And we’re playing the best team in the league, so we’ve got to get other guys going.”
Kidd specifically mentioned that the Mavs need much more production from guards Jalen Brunson and Spencer Dinwiddie, who have combined for only 41 points on 32.6% shooting in the two losses at the Footprint Center. It’s an especially stark contrast to the previous series for Brunson, who starred in the first-round victory over the Utah Jazz, averaging 27.8 points in the six-game series.
