Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks is known as one of the best shooters in the league.
There have been plenty of times when the star player has sunk a basket that seemed like it wouldn’t go in.
He can be a clutch player and also a very entertaining one too.
Recently, Doncic was on the court chatting with his teammates and taking practice shots when he drained an amazing trick shot that was from the corner of the court, behind the basket.

The shot, which would have had the crowd going wild during an actual game, was stunning but Doncic seemed casual and laid back about the whole thing.
That is possibly because he had his mind solely focused on the games ahead.
The Mavericks are set to play against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night and it’s a must-win game.
Doncic and his Dallas team are currently the 11th team in the West, which means if the playoffs started today then they wouldn’t even qualify to participate.
That’s a far cry from where they stood last season and it puts a lot of pressure on Doncic.
The team was able to push its way into the Western Conference Finals last year but now they are struggling to even make the postseason.
All of this means that Doncic probably won’t be prioritizing amazing trick shots during Wednesday night’s game.
Instead, he will stick to the fundamentals and rely on his teammates.
The Mavericks only have six games left and they need to win as many as they can.NEXT: Fans React To Luka Doncic's Stunning Play Against Pacers
