DALLAS (AP) — Kyle Kuzma scored 30 points, including two tiebreaking free throws with 4.2 seconds left, as the Washington Wizards beat the Dallas Mavericks 127-126 on Tuesday night.
Luka Doncic had 41 points and 15 rebounds for the Mavs. The Slovenian was still wearing the jersey he tore after missing a free throw that would have given Dallas the lead with 12.5 seconds left, when he fouled Kuzma, who was sliding down the wing.
The Mavs challenged the arbitration decision, which was nevertheless upheld. Kuzma missed his first shot from the line but hit his second.
Twice, Doncic tried to hit a pass to Spencer Dinwiddie despite being double covered on the final possession. The Wizards took the first ball out of the field and Delon Wright stole the second to clinch the win.
