Luka Doncic dazzles with 48 points in Olympic debut

Antonis Fotsis on a court: Luka Doncic scored 48 points in Slovenia's 118-100 win over Argentina.

The third day of official competition at the Tokyo Olympics featured more action in the pool as U.S. swimmers added two more medals — a gold in the men’s 4×100 freestyle relay and a silver from Katie Ledecky in the women’s 400 free — to their record-breaking opening day performance on Sunday.

After being shut out of any medals on Day 1, Team USA bounced back in a big way with 10 medals on Sunday, including four golds.

Highlighting Monday’s action are the men’s team competitions in gymnastics and archery, as well as medal events in men’s and women’s fencing. Meanwhile, Olympic organizers are keeping a close watch on the weather as a tropical storm by the name of Nepartak is heading Japan’s way and could impact several events.

Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic was magnificent Monday in his Olympic debut, scoring 48 points in leading Slovenia to a 118-100 win over Argentina.

He flirted with the single-game Olympics scoring record of 55 points held by Brazil legend Oscar Schmidt, but was pulled from the game with about five minutes to go in the fourth quarter with his country well ahead.
