The Luka Doncic-led Dallas Mavericks held their nerves to edge out Oklahoma City Thunder 117-116 to register a 4-2 win and qualify for the Western Conferenc e finals. In Game 6, Doncic balled out as he dropped 29  with 10 assists and 10 rebounds to carry Dallas over the finish line. Celebrating this performance and the victory, Doncic's former club  Real Madrid  congratulated the Slovenian superstar.

Doncic joined the Real Madrid basketball team as a 13-year-old and went on to become one of the best players in European basketball. The 25-year-old, in his time in the Spanish capital, won MVP of the Euroleague, MVP of the Final Four, Spanish League and ACB MVP in one season while being part of seven title-winning sides.

We are proud of you, Luka:  Real Madrid

Thanking their former player, the Real Madrid X (Twitter) handle posted,  "Congratulations  @luka7doncic ! You played a spectacular game to take the  @dallasmavs  to the  @NBA  Western Conference finals. We are proud of you, Luka! Good luck in this new challenge."

I think we just stay together: Luka Doncic

Coming back to the West conference semi-finals, Luka Donic talked about the harmony in the Dallas Mavericks squad which helped them get over the finish line.  “I think we just stay together,” Doncic said. “We always talk on the bench, stay together, positive energy. And today was a good example of it.”

"We won the series. That's what matters in the end. We won 4-2, [even though] we didn't have home advantage. It's great that we won, but just struggles are going to come. You got to stay positive and keep hooping," Doncic added.
