While not known for his athleticism, Luka Doncic got up for a critical bucket against the Denver Nuggets.
With 15 seconds left and Luka’s Dallas Mavericks down 1, the Nuggets pressured full-court. After some close defense from Gary Harris, Doncic finally got the ball. Confusion on a switch between Harris and Mason Plumlee gave Luka the space he needed to drive towards the hoop. Paul Millsap tried to rotate for the block, but Doncic hammered a right-hander all over him. Plumlee got in on the poster by missing the block from behind as well. The whistle blew signaling the and-1, as the Pepsi Center crowd looked on in disbelief.
The sneaker Luka wore for this game was the Nike PG 2. This sneaker uses “dynamic wings” were used near the forefoot lacing to provide snugness. The responsive Zoom Air unit placement was retained under the forefoot, but was made larger for extra bounce.
Doncic rocked the “Blue Lagoon” colorway for this game, which can be found HERE.
