The entire TD Garden crowd was speechless after Luka Doncic performed some magic at the buzzer.
Even as a rookie, Luka was entrusted with the ball at the end of the half against the Boston Celtics. Even after a pick, defender Marcus Smart stuck to Doncic like glue. Luka tried all the moves including a behind-the-back dribble and in-and-out fake but to no avail. Smart got too close and collided with Doncic on the subsequent contest. As the buzzer sounded, the shot banked off the backboard before swirling around the rim and in. The contact forced Doncic on his back as he laid there questioning the no-call.
The sneaker Luka wore for this game was the Nike PG 2.5. This sneaker uses “dynamic wings” were used near the forefoot lacing to provide snugness, in addition to the midfoot strap. The responsive Zoom Air unit placement was retained under the forefoot, but was made larger for extra bounce.
