Dallas Mavericks All-Star guard Luka Doncic scored 29 points to help lead the Mavs to a 104-96 win over the Memphis Grizzlies at American Airlines Center on Wednesday.

The Mavs have not been performing well so far this season and had an 11-12 record entering the Grizzlies game. The previous day, the Mav were beaten 102-99 by Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets.

Doncic recognized that he has “got to be better” and is still struggling with his weight and trying his best to “trim down.”

“I had a long summer,” said Doncic, who led the Slovenian National Team to a fourth-place finish in the country’s first Olympics. “I had the Olympics, took three weeks off, and I relaxed a little bit. Maybe too much. I’ve just got to get back on track.”

Sources told ESPN that Doncic was weighing more than 260 pounds for two years in a row during the training camp. His listed weight is 230 pounds.

In addition to that, Doncic is currently also having a problem with his ankle.

“It’s still painful, but I try to play and try to practice,” Doncic said. “But it’s still painful.”

The Mavericks play the Indiana Pacers on Friday.
