Luka Doncic admits he learns from the best

Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic wasn’t afraid of Chris Paul on Sunday afternoon.

Doncic and his team held Paul to a surprisingly low 12 points in Game 3 on Friday and hoped to make it even harder for him in Game 4.

That’s exactly what happened: Paul finished the match with only 5 points.

The reason he left was that he fould, another unusual move from Paul.

Paul is not only foiled, he is also foiled.

Following a rude call against Doncic, Paul asked: “Did I push you so hard?”

Doncic’s response summed up his quest to bring down Paul: “No, but it was a smart game.”

Paul is not a problem

If the Suns hope to get back on track and defeat the Mavericks, Paul will have to start playing like himself.

He averaged 18.1 points, 4.5 rebounds and 9.5 assists per game.

Obviously, he hasn’t even come close to that in the last two games.

His shots are more sloppy and his mindset isn’t where it needs to be.

The four fouls he committed in the first half of Sunday’s game marked a milestone in his career, but not a good one.

While the Suns have other great players on the roster, Paul is definitely a cornerstone of the team.

The team doesn’t live and die on his performance alone, but he certainly adds a lot when he’s doing well.

Paul has been in the league for years and has a very high basketball IQ.

However, that IQ has seemed incredibly low over the past few games.

Paul is known for his ability to bounce back.

Now fans are just waiting for that rebound to begin.
