Mavs' Luka Dončić becomes first NBA player with 6 consecutive 30-point triple-doubles in win over Pistons.

For Luka Dončić, making NBA history is effortless. The Dallas Mavericks star became the first NBA player with six straight 30-point triple-doubles on Saturday.

He broke Russell Westbrook's record of five consecutive 30-point triple-doubles with 39 points, 10 assists, and 10 rebounds in a 142-124 win over the Detroit Pistons.

Additionally, Dončić has a string of five consecutive triple-doubles with 35+ points. Clipper James Harden has two, while Westbrook and Oscar Robertson have three.

Dončić, 25, was substituted in the final minutes of Saturday's triumph after his second-half surge gave the Mavericks a comfortable lead. He tried on his teammate's sport glasses while watching the game:

The Mavs' Kyrie Irving had 21 points and five assists, while Daniel Gafford and Tim Hardaway Jr. had 17. Derrick Jones Jr. scored 12.

Kidd has been inventive in his appreciation for Dončić recently. He argued in January that the Slovenian great was the Mavericks' best franchise player and should be considered GOAT with Michael Jordan.

Dončić, who became the first NBA player to record a triple-double with 35+ points in four consecutive games, was praised by Kidd as "as rare as a Picasso." After three losses, the Mavericks won their second straight game on Saturday.

The Pistons lost 10 of 12 games. Cade Cunningham, Detroit's third-year leader, scored 33 points, 10 assists, and 9 rebounds. Ausar Thompson left due to illness. The Mavericks, currently ninth in the Western Conference, will face the Chicago Bulls on Monday.
