Luka Doncic has apparently made some fans in Sunday’s loss to the Golden State Warriors.

“He’s unbelievable,” Warriors guard Steph Curry told reporters following their 119-114 win. “You can tell he’s just experienced in terms of playing high-level basketball. A guy that’s always at his own pace. I’m sure he had heard all the doubters and people talking about his game who really didn’t know much about him, and he’s made himself known for sure. It’s fun to watch in terms of the future of the league.”

Doncic finished 26 points, six rebounds and five assists, becoming the first rookie in over two decades to record three straight games with at least 25 points, five rebounds and five assists. He was sensational for the first three quarters until the Warriors held him to three points on 0-of-5 shooting in the fourth.
