The Dallas Mavericks traveled to Mexico City for one of the NBA’s two games there this season. They faced the Detroit Pistons on Thursday evening. It was a stern test for the Mavs played at elevation.

The offense was not a problem in Mexico City. The Mavericks scored more than 30 points in three of the four quarters as they went on to a 122-111 victory over the Pistons. That included several standout performances.

Seth Curry was on fire on Thursday evening. He played 34 minutes off the bench and finished with 30 points on 15 field goal attempts. Curry hit six 3-pointers in his best game of the season. He had an impressive game the last time the Mavs visited Mexico City too.

Kristaps Porzingis produced one of his top contests too. He finished with 20 points, eight rebounds, and three blocks in 30 minutes of action.

The star of the show was once again Luka Doncic, though. The 20-year-old finished with 41 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists, and six 3-pointers made in 34 minutes of action. He was 14 of 24 from the field and seven of 12 on his free throws. It was one of Luka’s best games of an already incredible campaign.
