Luka Doncic drops Josh Okogie with crossover, passes up game-winning shot (video)
Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic had a chance at an awesome highlight. With Dallas trailing the Timberwolves by two points on the final possession last night, he crossed (and maybe pushed) Josh Okogie to the floor then stepped back beyond the 3-point arc.
A game-winning ankle-breaker? Doncic had the opportunity.
Instead, as Tyus Jones rotated over, Doncic passed to the open Jalen Brunson. Brunson missed a open 3-pointer at the buzzer, giving Minnesota a 110-108 win.
Doncic shooting would have definitely been the most fun play. I’m honestly not sure whether passing was the right play – especially because the Mavericks would be better off tanking to keep their top-five-protected first-round pick.
