The Dallas Mavericks made it look easy as they crushed the New Orleans Pelicans 125-107 on May 12. Luka Doncic led the way with 33 points. Tim Hardaway Jr. stayed white-hot, and Kristaps Porzingis looked fantastic in his return to the floor in an incredible all-around performance from the Mavs.
It was an important win for Dallas too. They lowered their magic number to finish in the top six down to one. Dallas and Portland have identical records with the Lakers one game back in the standings. Each team has two games remaining, and every single one is massive in the race. Fans can see the scenarios of what can happen here.
Doncic caught fire in the second quarter on May 12. He hit a career-high-tying five 3-pointers in the period as the 22-year-old superstar helped the Mavs jump out to a massive lead. Luka had his impressive skill set on full display even before the ball tipped off, though.
