Luka Doncic dazzled in the Dallas Mavericks ‘ victory over the Los Angeles Clippers (112-105) by scoring 51 points, which is a new scoring record for the Slovenian in the NBA.
Doncic started the game at full speed with a memorable first quarter in which he scored 28 points on 10-for-13 shooting and 7-for-10 on three-pointers.
The point guard finished the match with 51 points (17 of 26 shots, 7 of 14 triples), 9 rebounds and 6 assists compared to 7 turnovers in 40 minutes on the court.
The Mavericks managed to win 17 points in the third quarter, but in the last quarter they had to throw in the rest to avoid a comeback by Clippers who are experts at turning games around.
Marcus Morris (21 points) was the top scorer for the Los Angeles team, which was much lower in rebounding (31 to 41 of its rivals).
The Mavericks and the Clippers maintain a remarkable rivalry forged in recent years since the Angelenos eliminated the Dallas in the first round of the playoffs of the last two years.
This was the Mavericks’ first game without Kristaps Porzingis , who was traded to the Washington Wizards , and the Clippers ‘ first game without Serge Ibaka , who has signed with the Milwaukee Bucks .
