Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks are currently battling Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers in a close Game 7 that will see the winner move on to face the Utah Jazz in the second round.
Doncic came out firing in this one, as he put up 19 points in the first quarter which helped Dallas take a three-point lead into the second quarter.
Dominating in the playoffs is nothing new for Doncic. He’s put up so many huge playoff performances in his young career and could add another one today.
He closed out his first quarter, though, by becoming a meme when he had this great reaction after basically falling into the cameraman’s lap.
