Dallas ends Brooklyn’s winning streak: “Euro-brothers” Doncic and Porzingis lead Mavericks to victory

Dallas stopt zegereeks van Brooklyn: “Euro-brothers” Doncic en Porzingis loodsen Mavericks naar winst

Dallas has put an end to the increasingly impressive winning streak (8 out of 8) of the Brooklyn Nets. Slovenian phenomenon Luka Doncic and Latvian giant Kristaps Porzingis (2m21) led the Mavericks to a 98-115 victory.

Without still Kevin Durant and now also Kyrie Irving, Brooklyn started the game against Dallas in-house, particularly handicapped. James Harden (29 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists) kept Brooklyn in the match until halfway (64-68). “The Beard” scored only 4 points in the second half and a collective playing Dallas took easy distance with five players in double figures.

Exponents of the win: Luka Doncic (27 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists) and Porzingis, back from a back injury, who scored 18 points. With 22 out of 35, the Nets remain second in the Eastern Conference. Dallas is slowly but surely coming back among the people with 16 out of 32 and is ninth in the Western Conference. The top 8 are placed for the play-offs after the regular phase.

Utah Jazz with the response
A day after the defeat versus the Miami Heat, leader Utah Jazz on the road responded with a reaction. In Orlando it won, despite 34 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists from Nikola Vucevic, 109-124 from Orlando Magic. No fewer than seven players came in double figures and Donovan Mitchell was again the big figure at the Jazz with 31 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists. With 27 out of 34, Utah remains a solid leader in the NBA and the Western Conference.

Triple-double Nikola Jokic
The 2m11 great Nikola Jokic (19 points, 11 rebounds, 13 assits) led, with the support of Jamal Murray (26 points), Denver Nuggets with a solid triple-double to a nice victory on the road and at Oklahoma City Thunder : 96-126.
