Luka Doncic Joins Michael Jordan In Elite Playoff Scoring Club At Age 25!

At just 25 years old, Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic has already cemented his status as one of the greatest offensive playoff performers in NBA history, despite not having won a championship yet. His remarkable achievements were highlighted again after the NBA Finals concluded on Monday night.

According to, Luka Doncic joined Michael Jordan as one of the top four players to score the most points during their first 50 playoff games. Doncic’s 1,546 points place him behind only Michael Jordan (1,814), Elgin Baylor (1,675), and Wilt Chamberlain (1,647) in this elite group. Notably, Michael Jordan scored 268 more points than Doncic without relying heavily on three-point shots, making this feat even more impressive.

During his 50 playoff games, Doncic has averaged 30.9 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 8.0 assists per game. Few players in NBA history can match his offensive output. However, Doncic has consistently faced challenges on the defensive end. Throughout the series, the Boston Celtics targeted him relentlessly, a strategy that contributed significantly to their victory in the NBA Finals.

Despite the Mavericks’ defeat in the 2024 NBA Finals, general manager Nivo Harrison is confident that Doncinc will improve.

“He’s 25 years old,” Harrison told ESPN on Friday. “I think just going through the Finals, him seeing what he needs to do to be at his best in the Finals after going through a grueling end of the year and then three tough, tough [playoff] matchups, I think you’re going to see the best version of him.”
