Luka Doncic Assigns Kyrie Irving New Nickname After Mavs Victory

Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving are displaying a cinematic masterpiece in the NBA playoffs. They're not just dribbling a ball and finding the bottom of the net; these two stars are showing what artwork in sports looks like.

The two helped the Dallas Mavericks secure a Game 3 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, scoring 33 points each. Doncic and Irving switched off the scoring responsibilities throughout the game, but it's a known fact that when the fourth quarter comes around, you give the ball to Irving and get out of his way.

Irving scored 14 points in the fourth quarter, shooting 5-7 from the field. He put on his backpack tightened the straps and led the Mavs to a commanding 3-0 series lead in the Western Conference Finals.

After the game, Doncic spoke on Irving's clutch ability, sharing an interesting nickname for the NBA veteran.

"That's why they call him, some people, Mr. 4th quarter, right?... He's born for this situation. He [was] born for clutch situations. So we just give the ball to him," said Doncic, via ClutchPoints on X.

This duo is going to be tough to stop for any team moving forward. The Mavs are looking like the team to beat and potentially the favorites to win the NBA championship.
