Luka Doncic's triple-double propels Mavs to 3-2 lead over Thunder

Doncic came into Game 5 against the Oklahoma City Thunder, a crucial game, resolved not to waste any energy arguing with the officials.  

As is typical of Doncic, he vented extensively throughout the humiliating Game 4 loss  

Nevertheless, he made the decision on Wednesday that joy would characterize his strategy for this crucial match at the hostile Paycom Center.  

"Just focus on basketball," Doncic stated following the Mavs' 104-92 triumph,   

which brought them within a single victory of the Western Conference finals. Keep in mind what I enjoy doing most. Play some basketball.  

Despite playing through a damaged right knee, a sore left ankle, and the smothering defense of Thunder goalie Luguentz Dort, Doncic replied with his greatest  

performance of the playoffs. This comes after he struggled by his All-NBA standards in the first four games of the series. With 10 boards and 11 assists, he finished with 31 points.  

On Wednesday night, Doncic had a few friendly but brief exchanges with the officials.
