It almost looked watching a replay. When Luka Doncic went into his bag for a step-back against Boston that gave Dallas a 110-107 win it brought back NBA bubble memories. In nearly the exact spot where he hit a bubble gamer in the playoffs versus the Clippers, the Slovenia native ended any hopes of a Celtics comeback.

Doncic led all scorers with 31 points in the Dallas win, and also tacked on 10 rebounds and 8 dimes. It was the final two buckets that every Mavericks fan will remember as the patented step-back was in full effect.
