It's not hard to notice what 20-year-old senesation Luka Doncic is doing in just his second NBA season.

As he averages a near triple-double (30 points, 9.8 rebounds, 9.2 assists), he is breaking records along the way, building a case for the best 20-year-old season in NBA history.

In Sunday's match against the Kings, though the Mavericks walked away with a loss, Doncic made some more history -- this time, putting himself in the company of the GOAT himself.

Racking up 27 points, 7 rebounds, and 8 assists, Doncic officially surpassed Michael Jordan for the most consecutive games with 20 points, five rebounds and five assists since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976.

This latest feat has been a trend for Luka all season long in the midst of a stretch very few players can match.

His heroics haven't been in vain, either. Even in spite of their loss on Sunday, the Mavs are 16-7 on the season with a third-place standing in the West. They've been one of the league's best teams after being an afterthought just a season ago.

On all accounts, it appears as though Luka is the real deal, and the Mavericks have every intention of being a threat for years to come. This season is likely the first of many dominant seasons to come.
