Doncic’s triple-double streaks ends, Gafford on the brink of history in Mavs’ 109-99 win over the Warriors

Last night, Luka Doncic’s remarkable triple-double streak came to a halt, but the Dallas Mavericks still emerged victorious against the Golden State Warriors, winning 109-99 at home. Doncic made history by becoming the first NBA player to notch six consecutive triple-doubles with over 30 points each but saw his streak snapped at seven games. Despite this, he still managed to score 21 points in limited time as there were fears that the Slovenian star might have picked up an injury.

Doncic’s streak includes five consecutive triple-doubles featuring at least 35 points and six with a minimum of 30 points. While Doncic’s run may have ended, his teammate Daniel Gafford is on the brink of his own historic achievement. Gafford is just two successful shots away from tying the legendary Wilt Chamberlain’s 1967 record of 35 consecutive made shots. In the game against the Warriors, Gafford scored 10 points, making all five of his attempts, all dunks. He is a recent addition to the Dallas Mavericks, having been acquired in a trade from the Washington Wizards on deadline day in exchange for Richaun Holmes and a 2024 first-round draft pick.

The Mavericks’ victory over the Warriors marked their fourth straight win. They are currently in 8th position in the Western Conference with a record of 38-28.
