Luka Doncic Drops 47 Points On France, The Second Most In EuroBasket History

Posted on September 08, 2022

Luka Doncic was incredible for Team Slovenia today, as he dropped a historical 47 points in front of one of the toughest rivals in the 2022 EuroBasket tournament. The Dallas Mavericks player isn't shy when he has to take over games, which is exactly what happened today against France.

Boasting the likes of Minnesota Timberwolves' Rudy Gobert and New York Knicks' Evan Fournier. Luka started off hot, making big points for his national team, setting the tone of the game, as he usually does in the NBA.

He even hit a ridiculous shot over Gobert and Fournier when everything pointed out he would turn the ball over. He jumped on one leg, made the shot with one hand, and scored an incredible 3-pointer that sent everybody into a frenzy.

Luka Doncic Scores 47 Points vs. France, The Most In 21st Century

That wasn't the end for the Dallas Mavericks superstar. He kept coming and attacking his rivals, also hitting a step-back 3 on Gobert to confirm he was on his game today. In the end, Luka finished the game with 47 points, setting a record for the 21st century.

With this performance, he surpassed Giannis Antetokounmpo's 42 points, setting the highest score in a single game in the 2022 edition of this tournament. This is the second-highest single-game scoring in EuroBasket history, only surpassed by Eddy Terrace, who went off with 63 points back in 1957.

This is another milestone for Luka, who is still young and with a huge career ahead of him. He's not slowing down, and one can only imagine what he'll do for the rest of his career. He's already mentioned that winning a championship with his national team would mean more than an NBA ring, and it seems like he's ready to achieve that this year. Slovenia beat France 88-82 to become leaders of Group B of the tournament.
