The answer is now clear: Doncic is definitely doing very well!
After taking down the Utah Jazz in the first round, he and his Mavericks are now squaring off against the Phoenix Suns.
While Dallas lost Game 1 of this series, Doncic was breaking records and dropping jaws on Monday night.
At the end of the game, Doncic put up 45 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 assists.

By doing that, Doncic became the youngest player with 45 points and 10 rebounds in a playoff game since Kobe Bryant back in 2001.
Doncic is a monster in the regular season but it’s becoming obvious that he is ready to also impress in the postseason too.
Doncic & Dallas
No matter how it all ends, this has been a good season for Doncic and the Mavericks.
After getting a new head coach and making a big mid-season shakeup via a trade, the team ended the year in the fourth spot with a 52-30 record.
That sort of success was much-needed because fans are well aware that they only have so much time left with Doncic before he gets frustrated and decides to move to another team that can make him an NBA champion.
Even though he’s one of the biggest names in the game, he had never made it past the first round of the playoffs until last week.
Now that he’s officially in the second round, he’s looking to make an impact.
45 points is a wildly impressive number and followers of the Mavericks should be very excited about that.
However, it’ll all be bittersweet unless the Mavericks can figure out a way to outplay the Suns.
