In a career exhibit of Luka Magic, the Dallas Mavericks star guard showcased his slick shooting at the expense of the Memphis Grizzlies.
The game clock read 1.8 seconds with Luka Doncic’s team down two with the ball. Mavericks teammate Maxi Kleber faked an inbound to the corner before snaking a pass to Doncic running towards half-court. Grizzlies players surrounded him, with the Dallas star weaving between them towards the rim. Completely off-balanced, Doncic floated a shot behind the line with the buzzer sounding. The rock touched nothing but net with ESPN announcer Dave Pasch calling it perfectly: “A DONCIC DAGGER… As he was stumbling, he somehow got it to go!”
The sneakers that Luka laced up for this magical moment is the Jordan React Elevation. This style features lightweight React foam and Zoom Air cushioning in the forefoot. Real and synthetic leathers mix on the upper to give a throwback feel.
