But ultimately the Mavs came up short as they fell to a 127-126 defeat, leaving them 25-24 on the NBA regular season.
Doncic had last week stunned fans by turning up to a game in a $200,000 'Apocolypse-proof' Jeep.
However it was a heartwarming exchange he shared with his family before the Wizards' contest which really got fans talking.
In a video shared by Dallas, Doncic positioned his father Sasa in prime courtside seats at the American Airlines Center.READ MORE ON LUKA DONCICLUK-ING AMAZING Doncic's girlfriend's best pics as Slovenian is labeled ‘queen of NBA’LUKA’S LIFE Inside Luka Doncic’s ‘apocalypse-proof’ Jeep which can blow steam out its front
Two young girls accompanied Sasa, with one believed to be Doncic's half-sister Tijana and the other his cousin.
The three-time All-Star exchanged a handshake with his father, before high-fiving with the delighted girls.
Dallas' official Twitter account captioned the sweet video: "Family over everything."
And fans were smitten to see their star man put family first ahead of the big game.Most read in NBAKUZ HE CAN NBA star looks like 'GTA character' before game and fans troll 'outrageous' lookBROTHERLY LOVE Hilarious moment Seth Curry disrupts brother Steph's pregame routineTAKING RESPONSIBILITY Shannon Sharpe breaks silence on clash at NBA game with TV statementSWISH, SWISH NBA fans 'live in fear' of Warriors star as he sinks 'insane' half-court shot
One wrote: "Treating Lukas dad like a king."
Another added: "Slovenija proud."
While a third joked: "Sisters gonna be lethal in the WNBA."
Doncic stole headlines last week after arriving at a game against Atlanta Hawks in his latest purchase.
He rocked up to the contest in a remarkable $200k Apocalypse Hellfire - a heavily-modified Jeep Gladiator.
The crazy motor features a three-part Kevlar protective coating, a quarter-inch thick steel front bumper, and a 9,500-pound winch.
While under the bonnet there's a 6.2-liter V8 engine delivering a meaty 500 horsepower.
Doncic once again got the Mavericks out of first gear against the Wizards, dominating on the stat line.
But even another 40-plus performance was not enough to stop Dallas from slipping to their seventh defeat in nine games.6Doncic had shown off his $200k Jeep last weekCredit: Twitter/MarkJonesESPN 6The incredible machine is coated in kevlar and has a 6-liter V8Credit: Twitter/CassidyHubbarth Topics
