Mavericks star Luka Doncic is taking time out for his family ahead of his latest game against the Washington Wizards.
The 23-year-old Slovenian guard dominated the board with 15 rebounds and 41 points in Tuesday’s game in Dallas.
But in the end, the Mavs lost 127-126, leaving them 25-24 in the NBA regular season.
Last week, Doncic surprised fans by attending the game in a $200,000 “apocalypse-proof” Jeep.
But it was the warm-hearted exchange he shared with his family before the Wizards contest that really got fans talking.
In a video shared by Dallas, Doncic placed his father, Sasa, in a prime courtside seat at the American Airlines Center.
Two girls accompanied Sasa, one was Doncic’s half-sister Tijana and the other was thought to be his cousin.
The three-time All-Star shook his father’s hand before high-fiving the overjoyed girls.
The Mavericks’ official Twitter account captioned the sweet video: “Family over everything.”
And fans were mesmerized to see their starman put family first before the big game.
One wrote, “Treat Lucas’ dad like a king.”
“Slovenia is proud,” he added.
A third joked: “Sisters are going to be deadly in the WNBA.”
Doncic stole the headlines last week after arriving at a game against the Atlanta Hawks with his latest purchase.
He entered the contest in an amazing $200,000 Apocalypse Hellfire, a heavily modified Jeep Gladiator.
The crazy car has a 3-part Kevlar protective coating, a 1/4-inch thick steel front bumper, and a 9,500-pound winch.
Under the hood is a 6.2-liter V8 engine that puts out 500 horsepower.
Doncic once again took the Mavericks out of first gear against the Wizards and dominated the stat line.
But another 40-plus performance wasn’t enough to stop Dallas from suffering its seventh loss in nine games.
