Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich had nothing but praise for young Mavericks star Luka Doncic on Thursday night in Dallas.  After a first quarter where his team held the Mavs to just 20 points, Pop called “Luka a beast.”

Pop then admitted they were going to have to figure out how to slow Luka down, because he normally has his way with San Antonio.  They don’t call him one of the best head coaches for no reason.

Popovich was right.  Luka is a beast and despite missing several games with an ankle injury, he was going to be hard for the Spurs to stop.
