James became the first player in Lakers franchise history to record four triple-doubles in the first 10 games of the season. Interestingly enough, Dallas Mavericks forward Luka Doncic has also accomplished the same feat this season. The Lakers still have one game left before they get to 10 as they sit at 7-2 after nine games.

The 42 points were a career-high for Doncic . The Slovenian sensation put together one of the best games of his career to date, finishing with a career-high 42 points , 11 rebounds and 12 assists to register his sixth triple - double so far already this season, and make history in the process.

Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic's breakout triple-double performance on Monday in a 117-110 win over San Antonio Spurs was just the latest of his brilliant sophomore season run that's seen him notch six triple-doubles this season.

His 42 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds make for an eye-popping stat line alone, and then factor in the flair of Doncic's passing and clutch gene he continues to show. Here are three reasons why Doncic's epic start to the 2019-20 campaign are significant:

Luka Doncic (35 points , 12 rebounds, 10 assists) recorded his 2nd career triple - double for the Mavericks tonight, as the Raptors defeat Dallas 123-120.

1. Luka's nearing LeBron James stratosphere. Doncic became just the second player in NBA history at 20 years old to put up 40-plus points alongside a triple-double. The other to accomplish that feat? His childhood idol LeBron. Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson were 21 before they hit those marks on their career resumes. No player 20 or younger, including James, has averaged more points or assists than Doncic.

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

James praised Doncic earlier in the month when the Lakers escaped the Mavs in overtime, saying: "I love his game, his ability to not only create shots for himself, but you guys know I love the fact that he can get great looks for his teammates. That's what I thrive on, that's what I've always believed in, and he just plays the game the right way."

2. From Rookie of the Year to MVP? On the season he's averaging 29.5 points, 10.7 rebounds and 9.3 assists a game. Doncic is also shooting a blistering 61.2% from the field. While last year's All-Star caliber season was meaningful for showing the two teams that picked above him in the 2018 draft that they whiffed, this season is proof that Doncic is not only worthy of starting in an All-Star game, but he also in the MVP conversation. His six triple-doubles lead the NBA right.

It's early, but Doncic's praise is also far from a snap judgment. He's been torching teams on a regular basis and made the Mavs a playoff contender in a loaded Western Conference. And even though Kristaps Porziņģis was the big piece to the playoff equation added in last year's blockbuster trade, it's most definitely Doncic's team right now.

3. Luka's carrying on Dirk Nowitzki's international torch. Speaking of MVPs, with future Hall of Famer Nowitzki concluding his Mavs career, Doncic is ascending as a European NBA superstar at just the right time. Owner Mark Cuban has taken pride in Nowitzki's time with the Mavericks, and now he has himself another player capable of similarly great things. For all the European busts in the NBA draft, Nowitzki was one of the first to break through and transcend the game as a 7-foot three-point shooter out of Germany.

"This guy can do anything he wants to on a basketball court," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle told reporters of Doncic on Monday. "He's having one of those magical runs right now. It's a phenomenal thing to watch. It's a phenomenal thing to be a part of."
