If people didn't know who Luka Doncic was, they sure do now. 

Social media was abuzz over the Dallas Mavericks playmaker's game-long brilliance in his team's 135-133 overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday (US time). 

The 21-year-old Slovenian, who entered Game 4 supposedly with a bum ankle, deserved the praise and more that came in his way. 

He finished with 43 points, 17 rebounds and 13 assists, helping Dallas erase a 21-point, first-half deficit and capping off the comeback with a deep 3-pointer at the buzzer in the extension for the victory. 

The result enabled Dallas, which was without Kristaps Porzingis on the night, to tie their Western Conference first-round series at 2-2. 

For his superstar turn, Doncic drew raves from other NBA big names.
