Dallas Mavericks star Luka Dončić went viral during Friday night's Game 6 of the Western Conference first round series against the Los Angeles Clippers when his stare down of James Harden harkened a throwback to his iconic meme of staring down Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker.

The original stare down of Dončić and Booker took place in Game 7 of the 2022 Western Conference semifinals when the Mavericks were blowing out the Suns. On Friday night, with the game well in hand, Dončić had a conversation with Harden in which the meme was recreated on social media.

NBA fans couldn't help but relish in the recreation of the iconic basketball moment on social media. Here are some of the best reactions to the clip after the Mavericks advanced to the second round and sent the Clippers home packing.
