NBA Slovenian equals career-best scoring mark for victory

Luka Doncic and Stephen Curry hug after their scoring display at the Mavericks-Warriors

Luka Doncic needed to make the best of his wide repertoire to prevail over Stephen Curry in the best individual game of the season in the NBA. A confrontation between two different players who do not need their physique to make a difference with their game and in which the Slovenian ended up prevailing in a ‘photo finish’ final in which the Mavericks they beat the Warriors by 134-132.

The former Real Madrid player equaled the best scoring record of his career at the end of the clash with 42 points (12 of 23 field goals with seven of 12 from the triple) to which he added 11 assists (of which 27 were born for the Texans) and seven rebounds in an exhibition that could have been overshadowed by the brightness of a Stephen Curry in a state of grace facing the rival ring: 57 points and 11 triples, signing his best mark of the season.

However, despite the Warriors point guard triple with 28 seconds remaining, the Slovenian did not lose his composure and in 5.6 seconds he found Maxi Kleber for Obradoiro’s ex to score the triple that cut the streak of six straight losses at home for some Mavericks, in which they also shone Kristaps Porzingis (18 + 10) and Josh Richardson (17) to survive against the scoring explosion of his rival.

“What a display of basketball out there. Just amazing the way they play and score all night long. Curry and Doncic were spectacular. Both teams played with a lot of heart and a lot of fun. It was a very fun game to watch, “said the winning coach, Rick Carlisle, after the match, who fell asleep before the display of the two players who reigned in the night.

Los Mavericks eThey entered the clash through the front door with a partial 18-2 that allowed them to go ahead on the scoreboard for a good part of the first three quarters. However the Warriors got to go filing the gap down to nothing with a triple by Curry almost from midfield: “It is always good when you feel that you have that rhythm. It was one of those nights, although obviously I wanted victory. I have mixed feelings right now,” acknowledged the explosive Curry after his last exhibition.

A great game from the base that was nothing before Doncic’s recital, which also left without a prize Andrew Wiggins’ 22 points and Kent Bazemore’s 20. Both players helped keep the Warriors out of the crash when the Mavericks took advantage of Curry’s absence early in the fourth quarter to regain a more than 10-point lead.

Golden State grabbed the save table again and got back into a game that looked like it was over with 44 seconds to go when Doncic anot un triple That put the Texans seven points ahead. Nevertheless, Curry was not about to miss the match and made two more shots from beyond the arc. to leave the difference in a single point. However, he no longer had the strength to neutralize the final Kleber triple.

“Playing against Stephen is always fun,” Doncic said after his second win in the last nine games. “I have to have more fun playing, go back to being who I was. I just have to go back to enjoying this game.”
