The Dallas Mavericks upset the LA Clippers 113-103 in Game 1 on May 22. Luka Doncic led the way with a 31-point triple-double, but it took a total team effort to grab the win. The Mavs are now in control of the series, but it is far from over.

Expect the Clippers to bounce back from a poor shooting performance in Game 2. Dallas must counter with another incredible game from Doncic. It could be a make or miss series, especially if LA continues to try to force Luka to give it up. Hopefully, the Mavericks role players stay hot and help them pull the upset.

There was plenty of excitement from Luka Doncic in Game 1 against the LA Clippers, but he is not stopping there. The 22-year-old superstar is loving watching the playoffs too. Let us take a look at his recent tweets to see what the Dallas Mavericks superstar was doing on Sunday evening.
