Luka Doncic finishes with 36 points as Dallas Mavericks top Spurs

Doncic returned with 7:18 left in the game, and Dallas up by ten. He hit a beautiful mid-range jumper in the fourth.

The Spurs were not done, though. They continued to whittle down the advantage as the Mavs went cold in clutch time. They cut it to one as Dallas had not scored in the final four minutes before Doncic made a clutch one-legged fadeaway to spark the victory.

Luka Doncic finished with 36 points, nine rebounds, and 11 assists against the Spurs on Friday night. The superstar was key in the Mavs second straight victory.
