Luka Doncic had a historic night on Wednesday.

Doncic finished with 41 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists, leading Dallas to a 102-98 win over Toronto. He scored seven of the last nine points of the game for the Mavericks, giving them the lead and helping them seal the win late.

It marked the third career game with at least 40 points, 10 rebounds and five assists for Doncic, giving him the most in franchise history, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Trailing 96-95 with just under two minutes to play, Doncic gave Dallas the lead with a driving layup. After a Toronto miss, the Mavericks ran down the shot clock until Doncic took the ball with just over a minute left to play and launched a deep three from 27 feet out. He nailed it, and the Mavericks took a four-point lead.

The Raptors cut the lead to two, but Kristaps Porzingis hit a pair of big free throws to extend the lead back to four and ice the game. He finished with 18 points, seven rebounds and two assists while going a perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line.

Doncic is now averaging 24.6 points, 8.6 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game on the season.
