Luka Doncic's list of fabulous feats is growing more lengthy by the game. Most recently, the Dallas Mavericks point guard willed the Mavs to their largest come-from-behind playoff victory in franchise history in their 135-133 overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers to tie the first-round NBA postseason series, 2-2. 

The Mavs were down one point and 3.7 seconds away from being down 3-1 in the series, when Doncic launched a 29-foot three-pointer to secure the win and his place as the best young player in the NBA. 

The 21-year-old is the youngest player to ever hit a playoff buzzer-beater and the youngest to record a 40-point playoff triple-double. 

The buzzer-beater was the cherry on top of a 43-points, 17-rebounds, 13-assists performance that will go down in Dallas-Fort Worth history. ... and NBA history.

Oh yeah, his exhilarating performance came after being a "game-time decision" due to a left ankle sprain.

Doncic is currently is the only player with more than one triple-double in the NBA playoffs this year. In his second year, Doncic's magic is already becoming a superhuman phenomenon that is etching him into the history books. The Mavs look to build on his stellar performance in the uber-important Game 5 against the Clippers on Tuesday at 8 p.m. CT in the Orlando bubble.

They will do it without Kristaps Porzingis (out with a knee) and with Dorian Finney-Smith (questionable with two hip issues) and if they do it, one bet seems certain:

It'll be because Luka Doncic just broke another record.
