Luka Doncic is a sensation. A phenom. A legit star.
That’s evident, even early on in his rookie season.
It’s been just two months, but he’s the runaway leader for Rookie of the Year and the biggest name in the class.
Part of what makes Doncic sensational is his incredible feel for the game, which is unreal at just 19. He stands out to anyone watching the game, whether it’s a hardcore fan who has been watching for 20 years or your dad who never liked the NBA and just has it on while he’s reading Dan Brown or whatever.
However, maybe the hype on him is a little high. His assists prop for tonight vs. the Clippers is set at 6.5. Our FantasyLabs Prop Bet analysis has the under as a Bet Quality of 10. And there are a lot of emerging reasons for that.
For starters, he’s averaging only 4.9 dimes per game. Dennis Smith Jr. accounts for 0.6 assists per game for Doncic, via NBA.com’s tracking data, and he’s out with injury.
