Dallas Mavericks celebrated the third victory in Cleveland in series. At the 120: 112 success of the Texans was the defense most of the time not at the height, but the Brilliance of Luka Doncic handed against a decimated CAVS team. Through the success, the MAVs are safe in the playoffs.

Cleveland Cavaliers (42-34) – Dallas Mavericks (48-29) 112: 120 (Boxscore)
The Slovene set up 35 points (14/26 FG), 9 rebounds and 13 assists in 38 minutes and had the game fully under control over the complete duration. The CAVs had no suitable opponent for the 22-year-old, in addition, with Jarrett all and Evan Mobley missed the two best Bigs due to injury. Thus, ex-Mavs Center Moses Brown for Cleveland and Doncic launched the Big you look several times damn old, including this ball fake.
In the first quarter, Doncic had more likely to search for the shooters and put a personal best value with 8 assists. The MAVs recessed 8 triples, with Maxi Kleber (6, 2/7 threesome, 6 rebounds) finally could meet more than a threesome again. In the episode, however, the MAVs cooled (0/7 3p in the second section), while the prudent Darius Garland (25, 10/17 FG, 10 Assists) and Caris Levert (32, 11/19) the hosts play a break guide ( 67:61).
Dallas was to be noted that they were still in use yesterday at home, the CAVs seemed to be grippy and played with more use. And yet the game tipped in the third quarter because Doncic decided not to lose this game. The Guard posted 20 points in the section in which he imagined his whole arsenal at stepback threes, floats and turnaround jumpers.
MAVs: Dorian Finney-Smith with new Career High
The MAVs won the 39:22 section, including because Dorian Finney-Smith took his touch again and three of his six triples (attitude career high) recorded in this phase. The 28 points (10/16 FG) of DFS also also had the best yield of its career (previously 27 in August 2020 against Milwaukee).
In the fourth quarter, the victory no longer came into danger, the team of coach Jason Kidd managed a double-digit lead until the end, because the defense was much better than halftime 1. Jalen Brunson put up 18 points, Dwight Powell came to 15, mostly by Doncic Lob Assists. Spencer Dinwiddie was spared.
