Great Luka Doncic! Dallas Mavericks win thrilling thriller against the Warriors

The Dallas Mavericks have ended their losing streak. Thanks to an outstanding performance by Luka Doncic, they won against the Golden State Warriors 116:113.

Dallas Mavericks (10-10) – Golden State Warriors (11-11) 116:113 (BOXSCORE)

In the rematch of the last Western Conference Finals, the Slovenian scored 41 points (14/27 FG, 4/9 3FG, 9/15 FT) and 12 assists and rebounds each, plus 4 steals – it was his fifth triple-double with at least 40 points, only five players in NBA history have more. It was also his 20th 40-point game – which brought him level with Dirk Nowitzki in Mavs history.

However, Doncic has been less than partially on his own in recent weeks. In particular, Tim Hardaway Jr. finally caught a good game again and scored 22 points, Spencer Dinwiddie delivered 14 and Josh Green coming from the bench 13 points. Maxi Kleber also came off the bench, for the Würzburger 6 points were noted in 25 minutes.

With the Warriors, Stephen Curry was by far the best point collector (32), but not quite as efficient as usual (11/24 FG, 5/14 3FG). Otherwise, the bank players, including Jonathan Kuminga (14, 10 rebounds), were particularly convincing. As an exception, the starters of the dubs had much bigger problems in this game and all of them had a negative plus/minus value.

Golden State never found the touch from downtown (11/43 three-pointers) over the game, which looked better with the Mavs (15/44). The Warriors also lost 18 turnovers (Dallas: 13) – both of which should catch up with the champion in the final minutes when they almost won the game.
