Watch: Luka Doncic can’t believe Kyrie Irving’s wild game-winner vs. Nuggets

Luka Doncic was reduced to a mere spectator in the final seconds of the Dallas Mavericks’ Sunday clash against the Denver Nuggets, but Doncic got the storybook ending he wanted courtesy of Mavs teammate Kyrie Irving.

Irving sank a ridiculous, buzzer-beating floater in the closing seconds of his team’s 107-105 win at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The eight-time All-Star scored the game-winner with his off-hand while running toward his left to evade Nikola Jokic’s outstretched arms.

Doncic was in disbelief over Irving’s shot. He was seen slumped over along the baseline in complete shock as if he were also one of the fans who had just watched the play courtside.

During his postgame news conference, Doncic was able to put his feelings of amazement about Irving’s shot into words.

“Unbelievable, man. I don’t think people realize how tough of a shot that is with the off hand. … I don’t think we’ll see it again. That guy’s special,” said Doncic.

Doncic may have yielded the game-winning shot to Irving, but the Slovenian still deserves credit for setting the stage for his teammate.

Doncic sank a clutch three-pointer in the Mavs’ prior possession to tie the game at 105. Nuggets guard Jamal Murray subsequently attempted and missed his go-ahead jumper a bit too early, leaving 2.8 seconds on the clock for Irving to finish things off.

Irving and Doncic combined for 61 points – none bigger than Irving’s final two.
