The excitement continues in the NBA Playoffs as history was made by a Dallas Mavericks superstar!

Dallas Mavericks

Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic was the star of the show on Sunday as he became the youngest player in NBA playoff history to make a 40-point triple-double, hitting a buzzer-beater against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Slovenian hit an incredible 43 points to help Dallas win 135-133 as they levelled the series against the Clippers.

Doncic joins Charley Barkley and Oscar Robertson as the only players to score at least 40 points, 15 rebounds and ten assists in a playoff game and he will be hoping to produce similar heroics during Tuesday’s fifth game of the series.

Raptors Set Up Celtics Clash

Defending NBA champions Toronto Raptors brushed aside the Brooklyn Nets to set up an enthralling series against the Bolton Celtics.

The Raptors, 8/1 to win the NBA title, won 150-122 on Sunday night, with reserve Norman Powell scoring a play-off-high 29 points.

The Celtics, 11/1 to win the NBA title, became the first team into the NBA playoffs Eastern Conference semi-finals as they completed a 4-0 series win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Los Angeles Lakers proved too much for Portland Trail Blazers with a 116-108 victory, while Utah Jazz took a 3-1 series lead over the Denver Nuggets.

Magic Out to Level the Series

The Orlando Magic are as big as 31/4 to grab the victory on Monday as they take on Milwaukee Bucks in Florida.

Orlando won the first game this month 122-10, but they have since lost the two meetings to trail 2-1 in the series.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 35 points in game three and punters can back him at 6/5 to score over 32.5 points on Monday night.

Oklahoma Ready to Make it Back-to-Back Wins

After losing the first two games of the series, Oklahoma City Thunder gave themselves a chance of advancing after winning game three 119-107.

Saturday’s success will give everyone a lift in the Thunder camp, and they are 27/20 to win for the second time in succession.

On the other hand, the Miami Heat are one win away from progressing into the semi-finals.

Goran Dragic and Jimmy Butler stole the headlines as Miami beat the Indiana Pacers 124-115 to take a 3-0 series lead.

They meet again on Monday night and the Heat are as short as 5/13 to claim a 4-0 series win.
