The Dallas Mavericks dominated the Denver Nuggets on Friday night as superstar Luka Doncic had a 31-point triple-double in the win. It was the Mavs' third victory in their last four games, and it was the second straight loss for the shorthanded Nuggets.
Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray remain out for Denver heading into Sunday’s contest, but Aaron Gordon was been upgraded to questionable. Still, Luka and company need to secure a victory as the Nuggets will be without their two best players in the final game of the Mavericks' five-game homestand.
