Charles Barkley heaps some hilarious praise onto Luka Doncic after the Mavericks spank the Clippers in first two games of the series.
Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks have yet again been matched up with the LA Clippers in the first round. And after watching the first two games, you’d have to be blind to not notice their thirst for blood.
The franchise has dominated its opponents during both games. They consistently keep it close and almost seem to be warming-up in the first half, before casually pulling away with the game in the second.
Despite the Clippers going into this series as the clear favorites, they now don’t even look like they’re capable of stealing more than 2 games from their opponents.
And after looking at this, ‘Inside the NBA’ panelist Charles Barkley has delivered the NBA community with possibly the most hilarious piece of analysis in the history of national television.
Charles Barkley gives Luka Doncic and Mavericks a hilarious compliment for their performances
The LA Clippers are down bad right now. They’re down 2-0, despite Paul George and Kawhi Leonard doing reasonably well on the offensive end. And a massive reason for that is how well Doncic has been breaking down their defense.
In the first game of the series, the Slovenian grabbed 41 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists on incredible efficiency. After this outing, he would’ve been excused to have a bit of an off-night in game-2. But it seems the star’s need for revenge is far too strong.
Luka Doncic gave the Clippers 38, while also grabbing 7 rebounds and 7 assists. In every sense of the word, the player is unstoppable right now.
Like many of us though, Chuck couldn’t believe how badly the Clippers were being dominated t first. And when it came time to analyze the game, here is what he had to say on Luka Doncic.

“Used to be white guys were scared to come to the hood, now they’re coming to the hood and kicking your a**.”
As soon as he said this, while the others started laughing, Kenny Smith brought up Larry Bird. And the Chuckster was inclined to agree with him.
It’s still a bit too early to say if Luka Doncic becomes as great a player as the Celtics legend. However, what we can easily deduce now, is that the Clippers are in big trouble. And Mavericks don’t look like they’re ready to let them off the hook.
