Unfortunately for Doncic, his feat on Sunday arrived in a 110-106 loss.

And those teams are working with multiple superstars. With apologies to Kristaps Porzingis, who’s still on the upswing from more than a year off with and ACL tear, his play this season doesn’t reach the rarified status of the likes of LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Anthony Davis and Paul George.
