Stephen A. Smith Discredits Luka Doncic’s 73-Point Game
In a recent commentary in the aftermath of the Atlanta Hawks-Dallas Mavericks game, ESPN sports commentator Stephen A. Smith heated up a debate among fans. This was via some controversial remarks that seemed to discredit the performance of Dallas Mavericks’ star point guard, Luka Doncic, in the victory over the Atlanta Hawks.
Luka Doncic achieved the highest-scoring game by an individual since the late Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers scored 81 points against the Toronto Raptors in 2006. Doncic’s remarkable performance occurred in the 148-143 victory over the Atlanta Hawks at the State Farm Arena, propelling the Mavericks to break free from their three-game losing streak. This was a career-high feat for Doncic as well as a franchise record for the Dallas Mavericks.
No stranger to controversies, Stephen A. Smith found himself on the opposing side of those celebrating for Doncic. He expressed his thoughts during an episode of ESPN’s NBA Countdown
Luka Doncic’s performance made him join the company of a range of legends who have scored 70+ points in an NBA game. The others include Wilt Chamberlain, Kobe Bryant, David Thompson, Damian Lillard, Joel Embiid, Donovan Mitchell. Elgin Baylor, David Robinson, and Devin Booker.
I’m sorry but where was this level of vitriol when Joel Embiid went off for 70 the other night against the Spurs…
Can we not just enjoy what Luka Doncic did last night!?!
