Doncic, 22, was in a groove all night long on Wednesday.
The guard popped off for 42 points, nine assists, six boards, three steals and two blocks to lead the Mavericks to a strong 105-89 victory over the Clippers.
On the season, Doncic is collecting 28.5 points, 9.3 assists and 8.4 rebounds per game. The Mavs have a 21-18 record this year.
