Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic had a 42-point double-double on Saturday night in Miami, but his team lost to the Heat to slip to four games below .500 on the season. It has been an epic collapse from the Mavs, and they have to win out just to finish at .500. Nobody saw this coming, especially after their run to the conference finals last year.
The Mavericks travel to Atlanta to face the Hawks on Sunday evening. It is the final back-to-back of the season for Dallas and another crucial game. The Mavs are still just one game behind tenth in the Western Conference and the final Play-In Tournament spot. Atlanta is tied with the Raptors for eighth in the East, and they need a win on April 2 as well.
