Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic added another record to his already impressive NBA resume.

The double All-Star scored his 5,000th career point in Friday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He only needed 194 games to reach the milestone, the least among active players to reach that goal.

Par ESPN Tim MacMahon, only LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony reached the 5,000 point mark at a younger age than Doncic (22, 68 days) in NBA history.

Doncic entered Friday’s game seven points off the mark. He exceeded that total in the first quarter.

In just his third NBA season, Doncic has already established himself as one of the best players in the league. He’s led the resurgence of the Mavs and looks like a future MVP.
