Dallas snapped Memphis streak – NBA | Playon99 News



Luka Doncic beat Ja Morant and, with a triple-double at the head of a fabulous collective performance by the Dallas Mavericks, they broke the Memphis Grizzlies’ eleven-game winning streak in a thousand pieces by 112-85 – Playon99 News

The Slovenian had 27 points (12 of 22 shooting, 0 of 6 on triples), 12 rebounds and 10 assists (with 6 turnovers) to overwhelm the Grizzlies, the fashionable team in the NBA but who only scored 30 points In the second half.

Doncic handled the last quarter as he pleased, in scoring and distribution, and put the finishing touch to the Mavericks’ victory with a beautiful assist from behind for a point with an additional Dwight Powell.

The key to the Mavericks’ victory was in the defense: superb and very supportive in the last two quarters.

Jalen Brunson (15 points, 5 rebounds, 9 assists and 5 steals) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (16 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists) were part of the group of seven Mavericks players above 10 points.

In the Grizzlies, Ja Morant, with 19 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists, but 8 turnovers, and Desmond Bane (16 points and 6 rebounds) were the highlights of a night of little success for the locals: 38.2% in field goals compared to 51.6% and clearly inferior in rebounding, 41 compared to 52.

A shot by Jaren Jackson Jr. and a meritorious two plus one by Desmond Bane, took the Grizzlies ahead 55-50 at halftime.

The Mavericks’ defensive attitude changed completely after his time in the locker room.

Much more combative and united, those from Dallas drowned out the Grizzlies’ attack and thus were able to go on the counterattack very easily.

Jalen Brunson breathed life into the Mavericks’ offense, but it was Doncic who, with a fast break layup, put his team ahead 62-63 with 7 minutes left.

Displaced and with a damaged compass, the Grizzlies accumulated turnovers with ease, something that further catapulted the Mavericks who, with their second unit and Doncic resting, perfectly executed their plan of defending and running.

In the end, the Slovenian owned the match and the show was all his to break the historic streak of the Memphis Grizzlies.
