Doncic in MVP mode: Dallas Mavericks beat the Clippers – NBA

On the best offensive night of his career, Luka Doncic scored 51 points in the Dallas Mavericks’ 112-105 win against the Los Angeles Clippers in a game that looked spicy in the run-up due to his history.

Doncic dazzled in the Mavericks’ win over the Clippers passing the 50-point line for the first time, setting a new NBA scoring record for a player who is just 22 years old.

The Slovenian surpassed his previous record of points -46 points achieved in February 2021- on the day that Dallas sent his partner Kristaps Porzingis to Washington Wizards in the closing of the transfer market of the National Basketball Association.

The Mavs and Doncic overwhelmed Los Angeles from the beginning with a first quarter of 36-28 in which Luka signed 28 points with 10 of 13 shooting and 7 of 10 in triples.

A complete madness about the shooting guard who had plays worthy of MVP with tricks and shots really above the world basketball average.

The Slovenian was rested for the second quarter and his team managed to take the situation to go to halftime with a score of 59-50.

The Dallas Mavericks won by a difference of 17 points in the third quarter, but in the last quarter they had to throw out the rest of the team to avoid a comeback by the Clippers who are experts at turning games around.

Marcus Morris -21 points- was the top scorer for the Los Angeles team, which was much lower in rebounding: 31 for 41 of its rivals.

The Mavericks and Clippers have a remarkable rivalry forged in recent years as Los Angeles eliminated Dallas in the first round of the playoffs the past two years.

This was the first game for the Dallas Mavericks without Kristaps Porzingis, who was traded to the Washington Wizards, and the first game for the Los Angeles Clippers without Serge Ibaka, who has signed with the Milwaukee Bucks.
