Luka Doncic Hits Insane One Handed Hook Shot From 3 To Win

NBA career’s “most difficult” bank shot was made by Mavericks’ Luka Doncic against the Nets. Superstar Luka Doncic of the Mavericks referred to his incredible 3-pointer against the Nets that he made to beat the shot clock as the “most difficult” of his career.

After their home opener, the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Brooklyn Nets 125-120. Luka Doncic finished with 49 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists. He also set a new career high for the most made 3-pointers in a single game by hitting 9–14 from outside the arc.

With just 26.1 seconds remaining in regulation, the Mavs took a 123-120 lead thanks to a one-handed, fading bank shot that beat Doncic’s shot block. It was the play that stole the show and guaranteed a win. After Dallas’ following possession ended with a defensive stop, Josh Green converted two free throws to seal the victory.

“I’m not sure. Doncic remarked, “I knew I had to put it up and touch the rim so that we would have a chance to reload when I saw there were two or three seconds left.”

Dorian Finney-Smith, Doncic’s previous teammate, made light of the fact that Doncic failed to call glass on the shot.

Finney-Smith remarked, “Hell nah, he ain’t call no glass,” according to ESPN. “He better not say he called glass, either.”

After hearing about Finney-Smith’s remark, Doncic made light of it by joking that he had pronounced “glass” in Slovenian, making it impossible for him to understand.

Doncic frequently makes trick shots and accomplishes feats that most people would seem impossible. As Doncic’s teammate, Finney-Smith participated in 311 games overall during the regular season and playoffs. He claims to have seen it “a million times.”

“I’ve witnessed it countless times,” Finney-Smith remarked. “He works on those shoots and plays around with it. He really cannot be faulted. We ought not to have allowed him to get the ball back, in my opinion. That was probably the best course of action. S—, he made that mug without even being able to see the rim.”

Doncic told reporters that he was genuinely expecting the shot to go in since it felt good when he released it.

Actually, Doncic replied. It was a pleasant feeling. Promise me.

Doncic believed that this shot was the most difficult of his career when compared to the other unlikely difficult shots he has made. He considered it to be his most difficult make because it was more of a hook shot than a jumper.

Doncic stated, “It was probably this one.” “I have no idea what I did. While playing against Portland is a factor, I believe this one was more difficult. It was somewhat of a hook shot, in my opinion.

Mavs coach Jason Kidd said that he tried to initiate a timeout prior to Doncic making the shot, which may have put an end to the incredible play he referred to as “a Luka special.”

Just glad I refrained from calling a timeout when I felt like it. Without a doubt, we wouldn’t be seated here, Kidd remarked. That is a speciality from Luka Doncic. He enjoys playing catch up, relishes those circumstances, and always finds a way. Luka’s problem is that he practises a lot of insane shots. On occasion, they are captured on camera.

Sometimes they are only noticed by the human eye. That was one of those shots tonight. He made it possible for us to get there. [49] total points. He had good play. What else is there to say about it? I am at a loss for words. He is unique.

Monday at FedEx Forum marks the Mavericks’ return to play as they take on the Memphis Grizzlies. Dallas has started 2-0 for the first time since 2019–20, with to Doncic’s 41.0 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 8.5 assists per game average.
