Luka Magic was on full display in this “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” dime pass from Doncic.
On this play, Luka drove down the lane from 30-feet immediately after receiving a pass from a Dallas Mavericks teammate. New Orleans big man Jaxson Hayes went to switch, leaving his man to cover Luka. This allowed Doncic to weave a behind-the-back pass to the rolling Dwight Powell for an easy slam dunk.
The Kobe 4 Luka wore in this game was the “Protro” version, which slimmed the heel shape and increased the range of the traction. The heel Zoom Air and soft phylon foam remained in the cushioning, providing lightweight bounce when landing on the heel. The upper features synthetic leather uppers, with Flywire panels in the midfoot for added lockdown.
