While the Dallas Mavericks came up short of an NBA championship, their run to the Finals was still very spectacular. As a 5th seed, few saw Dallas making it as far as they did, which made their Western Conference triumph that much more impressive. This run from Dallas was mostly due to the quality of Luka Doncic, who was amazing all season.

Doncic has been one of the league’s finest playoff players since his first postseason appearance, as his individual production has been among the all-time greats. In a post from the NBA on X (previously known as Twitter), the league stated that Doncic is now second all-time in playoff points per game, trailing only Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan.

Luka Doncic (30.9 PPG) is the 2nd-highest career postseason PPG average in NBA history (min. 3 games played).

He trails only Michael Jordan, who averaged 33.4 PPG in the postseason.

This is quite the feat for Doncic, who could continue improving these stats as his career goes on. Also playing much of this postseason with numerous injuries, Doncic was clearly less than 100% healthy, which made his performance even more impressive.

An NBA championship is truly what Doncic is pursuing, but there is no disputing that he continues to strengthen his legacy every single year. This season was no different, as it was a fantastic run for Doncic and the Mavericks.

Dallas will now go back to the drawing board as they try to enhance their roster. After receiving a firsthand look at the NBA champion Boston Celtics, the Mavericks know they level they need to achieve.
