Dallas Mavericks' Luka Doncic produced 30 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists to break a record for most triple-doubles in Mavericks history in a 127–123 overtime win over New Orleans Pelicans late Wednesday.

The Slovenian young star set Jason Kidd's record for most triple-doubles as he posted his 22nd triple-double in his young career. He recently celebrated his 21st birthday.

Doncic broke the Mavericks franchise record in just 122 NBA games.

In addition to Doncic's impressive performance, Kristaps Porzingis also dropped 34 points and grabbed 12 rebounds while Seth Curry came off the bench to add 21 points for the Mavericks.

For the Pelicans, rookie Zion Williamson scored 21 points in his first back-to-back NBA game.

All-Star forward Brandon Ingram played with 27 points and 5 rebounds.

The Mavericks improved to 38 wins and 25 loses, while the Pelicans dropped to 26 victories and 36 loses.

Stephen Curry to return from hand injury

Golden State Warriors' superstar Stephen Curry will take floor on Thursday night against the Toronto Raptors, recovering from the broken hand injury he suffered at the start of the season.

"Stephen Curry will return to the lineup tomorrow night against the Toronto Raptors," the club said in a statement late Wednesday.

The two-time regular season MVP has played in only four games and missed 58 appearances this season, averaging 20.3 points, 6.5 assists and 5 rebounds.

"This has been a long, long haul for Steph. He loves playing so much. I'm happy for us, I'm happy for our fans, but I'm happiest from Steph because he's going to be back playing basketball and doing what he loves," the Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr said on Curry's return, as shared on the club's Twitter account.

The Warriors have been the bottom placed Western Conference team this season, with only 14 wins and 48 losses, after losing Curry and Klay Thompson to injuries.
