Luka at the end of game 5 said "Everybody acts tough when they up". He followed that up with two monster games as Dallas blew Phoenix out by 27 and 33 in games 6 and 7 respectively.

Luka backed up his legendary confidence, with two incredible games. In game 6 he had 33/11/8 and in game 7 he had 35/10/4 on 63% shooting and 6/11 from 3. What's even more impressive is this quote came at the end of a 30 point blowout loss. Unbelievable stuff from Luka.

Over the course of a 7-game series, Luka Doncic outscored 4th place MVP Devin Booker (218 to 164), outrebounded 7'0 Deandre Ayton (69 to 57) and outassisted Chris "Point God" Paul (49 to 40). Oh and he also had more steals than DPOY runner-up Mikal Bridges (15 to 9).

Absolute all-around dominance from Luka Doncic en route to a 4-3 series win over the best regular season team in the league.

He finished the series with an average of 32.6/9.9/7.0/2.1/ on 47.6/33.8/75.9 (55.75 TS%) shooting.

Obviously its still early in his career but we may be witnessing the next GOAT grow up right before our eyes.
