Mavericks make franchise record 24 three-pointers, dominate Warriors 141-121

 

Mavericks defeat the Warriors 141-121.

That’s a statement that last season, you wouldn’t think would be true.

But, here we are.

Tonight was an old western shootout from the jump. Luka and D’Angelo Russell got the game started, trading threes back-and-forth throughout the first half.

Come the second half, after Russell exited the game with a shoulder injury, the only fight the Warriors had in them was a cowardly shove of Luka by Marquese Chriss.

Chriss, who’s on his fourth team in four years, was mad that Luka bumped him after Chriss clearly creates contact with him to begin with. Hell of a career you got brewing though, Marquese.

The Mavericks’ 45-point third quarter was the key to tonight’s win, as was their franchis record 24 made three pointers in a single game.

Luka easily dominated tonight, surely looking like that ankle is healed, finishing with 31 points, 12 rebounds, and 15 assists on 50% from the field and 5/8 from deep. Just a flawless game.

Luka’s stat line makes him the first player in NBA history to log 30+ points, 12+ rebounds, and 15+ assists in 30 minutes or less. Just another notch on the 20-year-old’s belt.

Tim Hardaway Jr. was the Robin to Luka’s Batman tonight, scoring 25 points and making 6/8 from three.

Porzingis added 18 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 blocks while Seth Curry and Delon Wright played great basketball off the bench. Curry scored 17 points and Wright filled up the stat sheet, finishing with 13 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, and 1 block.

Regardless of the Warriors struggles and depleted roster this season, scoring 141 points in an NBA game is a task but shooting 52% from the field and 47% from three while doing it is extremely impressive.

Dallas will follow up this blow out victory with a quick flight to Los Angeles to take on the Lakers tomorrow night. This makes for the third matchup of four between the two teams, splitting the first two.
