- A pair of All-Stars going head-to-head tonight in Orlando. Luka Doncic taking on Nikola Vucevic. Dallas looking to sweep the two-game season series from the Magic. Here's Vuc. Early on in the first quarter he gets going, then gets the pass and knocks down the jumper.
Vuc-- 29 points, 15 rebounds, eight assists, flirting with another triple-double. Off the Luka miss, Willie Cauley-Stein gets the rebound, finds Doncic for the layup. Then Luka from the outside. With Michael Carter-Williams right there, he buries it. Dorian Finney-Smith gets it inside to Luka, who had 15 and seven in the first half.
Final seconds here in the first half in Orlando. Evan Fournier buries the triple try. Fournier had 18 at the half, 26 in the game. Dallas led it at the break, 61-58. Third quarter, Mavs take control.
Look at the deep trifecta from Porzingis. Then Josh Richardson misses. Porzingis can do it from up close as well. Take a look as the seven-footer skies over Vucevic to throw it down. Porzingis had 17 and 10.
Jalen Brunson, corner 3 ball, that's good. How about 3 more for Brunson, who finished with 24 points and six boards. Dallas in control, 111 to 96. Back to Luka to put this one away. He flirted with a triple-double as well, one assist shy-- 33 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists.
Dallas wins it, 130 to 124. Mavs have won nine of 12. Orlando's dropped four in a row.
