Luka Doncic Surpasses Jason Terry for Second-Most 3-Pointers in Mavericks History

‣ Luka Doncic surpassed Jason Terry to become the player with the second-most 3-pointers in Dallas Mavericks franchise history, reaching 1,141 3s during a game against the Chicago Bulls.

‣ Doncic tied the record for the longest streak of 20-point triple-doubles in NBA history, matching achievements by Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson, by recording his seventh consecutive 20-point triple-double.

‣ Despite his personal achievements, Doncic emphasizes the importance of team success over individual records, as highlighted by Mavericks coach Jason Kidd, indicating Doncic’s focus on winning and team performance.


Last night, something pretty cool happened. Dallas Mavericks’ own Luka Doncic zoomed past Jason Terry, snagging the title for the second-most 3-pointers in the franchise’s history. This all went down during a game where they absolutely crushed the Chicago Bulls, 127-92. Quite the spectacle, huh?

Now, even though Doncic’s streak of 30-point triple-doubles ended at six games, he didn’t walk away empty-handed. Nope. With his fourth 3-pointer that night, he edged past Terry’s 1,140, clocking in at 1,141 3s. Talk about a nail-biter.

Oh, and get this – according to the whispers among NBA betting sites, Doncic is trailing just behind Nikola Jokic in the race for MVP. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s odds aren’t looking too shabby either. Betting enthusiasts, take note.

With his fourth 3-pointer against the Bulls, Doncic made history. The tweet from Mavs PR said it all, really. 1,141 3-pointers. That’s not a number you see every day.

By the end of the game, Doncic had nailed six 3-pointers, bringing his career total to a whopping 1,143. But here’s a fun fact: NBA legend Dirk Nowitzki still leads the Mavericks with 1,982 3s. Some big shoes to fill, right?

And let’s not forget the others who’ve made their mark: Tim Hardaway Jr., Michael Finley, Jason Kidd… the list goes on. Each of these players has left a legacy, contributing to the rich tapestry of the Mavericks’ history.

Now, onto something that’ll really bake your noodle. Doncic has racked up seven straight 20-point triple-doubles. That ties him with none other than Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson. If that’s not elite company, I don’t know what is.

But here’s the kicker: Doncic didn’t even finish the game against the Bulls. He bowed out midway through the fourth quarter. Even so, he left his mark with 27 points, 12 rebounds, 14 assists, and a steal. All in just 33 minutes.

His shooting wasn’t too shabby either: 39.1% from the field and 40% beyond the arc. And let’s not overlook his 75% free-throw accuracy. It’s his 39th double-double of the season and his 73rd career triple-double. The man’s a machine.

Mavericks coach Jason Kidd had some words of wisdom. It’s all about the win for Doncic. The numbers? Just a cherry on top. But one day, when he hangs up his sneakers, he’ll see just how extraordinary his game was.

And just for kicks, let’s talk about those 3s. This season, Doncic is averaging 4.0 3-pointers per game. That’s a new record for the Mavs. Even George McCloud’s impressive 3.3 in ’95-’96 is in the rearview.

Doncic’s streak of 20-point triple-doubles is something for the history books, tying legends like Jordan and Robertson. And to think, he nearly had a triple-double by halftime against the Bulls.

So far, through 57 games, Doncic is hitting career highs across the board. We’re talking points, assists, steals, and minutes. His shooting accuracy? Better than ever.

And if you’re into stats, Doncic is leading the NBA in a slew of categories this season. Points, points per game, you name it. The man’s practically a walking record book.

Next up, the Mavericks are set to host the Golden State Warriors. With Dallas sitting at 37-28 and the Warriors at 34-30, it’s bound to be a showdown worth watching.
