Luka Doncic joins Wilt Chamberlain, becomes 3rd player ever to start season with 7 straight 30-point games

Nov 3, 2022

There's no slow start for Luka Doncic in 2022.

After consecutive seasons of criticism and self-awareness that he was sluggish and out of shape out of summer break, Doncic has started 2022-23 on a tear. Now he's joined a very short list alongside elite company.

The Dallas Mavericks star scored 33 points to go with 11 assists and five rebounds in a 103-100 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. It was his seventh straight 30-plus point effort to start the season. He's the first player to achieve the feat since 1962-63. And he's just the third to ever do so.

Jack Twyman did it in 1959. Wilt Chamberlain — of course — did it that same year and again in 1962.
