Tonight’s Mavs vs Celtics game is Luka’s 300th career game. Searching on @Stathead, he’s 9th in NBA history in total points scored in his first 300 games. Most recently passing LeBron (vs New York) & Shaq (Monday in Houston), and he’ll end up w/in 100 pts of Elvin Hayes for 8th. pic.twitter.com/ZPRzYhhTDj4:21 PM
