However, what made the project even better was the reaction of the Mavericks star, along with owner Mark Cuban, after the project was criticized.

Officials initially described the fourth quarter as an offensive foul, allegedly extending his hand and making contact with Doncic in the face. In disbelief, Warriors coach Steve Kerr called for a challenge almost immediately.


After control, the offensive foul was overturned and the team managed to celebrate arguably the best dunk of this campaign since the Golden State season. Not everyone in Dallas was celebrating, however, as shots by Kuban and Doncic show they were shocked by the result.

Doncic was just as skeptical. He threw his hands up, put them on his face as he started laughing in disbelief and then put them on his head before talking to an official.
