Mavericks guard Luka Doncic is one of the most exciting young players to watch in the NBA, but he’s only 20 years old, so there’s still a lot of room for him to improve — especially on the defensive end of the court.
That was evidenced by one particular play in Monday night’s Mavs-Nets game, when Joe Harris absolutely dropped him with a nice move. It happened in the first minute of the game, when Harris used a great shot fake to get Doncic leaning one way, then just dribbled right by him, causing the Mavericks guard to fall down. Harris then calmly drained a jumper from just behind the free-throw line.
Doncic was featured on the other end of the highlight reel, for once.
