The Dallas Mavericks planned to get back on track on March 13 as they traveled to face the Denver Nuggets. They had won four straight before losing to the Thunder. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis were back in the lineup and ready to grab their 20th win of the season on Saturday night.
It is never easy winning in Denver, though. Nikola Jokic is in the thick of the MVP race. Jamal Murray gives them a second star, and the Nuggets made the Western Conference Finals in the bubble. It would be a fantastic test for the Mavericks as they are looking to stay hot.
Luka Doncic put on a show, but it was a fantastic team effort to pick up the 116-103 win. The 22-year-old superstar commanded the offense and had a night. Here is a look at some of Luka’s best plays from the victory.
Luka Doncic has massive double-double in Dallas Mavericks win over Nuggets
The Nuggets had a ten to nothing run to start the game. It looked like Dallas could be in trouble, but Luka quickly helped them right the ship. He had his passing on full display in Denver. See a beautiful hockey assist below.
Doncic was far from done. He found Josh Richardson for a 3-pointer on this no-look pass.
Luka Doncic finished with 21 points, five rebounds, 12 assists, and three 3-pointers made against the Nuggets. The Mavericks outscored Denver by nine points in his 33 minutes of the floor.
Kristaps Porzingis also had a monster night. He produced 25 points, six rebounds, and three blocks on ten of 15 shooting from the field. Josh Richardson chipped in 20 points of his own to stay hot. The Mavs dominated the Nuggets on March 13 as they continue to rise in the standings.
The Dallas Mavericks return home to face the LA Clippers on March 15. It is the first of a two-game set versus Kawhi Leonard and the Clips. Expect Luka Doncic to remain hot as the Mavs look to make it a winning streak. Do not miss it.
