The Mavericks generally had a quiet evening Sunday against Sacramento. Carried by a Luka Doncic who once again responded present (23 points, 8 rebounds, 10 assists), Dallas capitalized on a controlled first part of the match (53-47 at the break). On resumption, the Mavericks gave it a blow (29-25 in the third quarter) to afford a serene end to the game despite the best at the Kings.
Frank Ntilikina helped the Mavs win with 12 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists in 21 minutes. In the Kings, Richaun Holmes’ 22 points were not enough.
