Doncic, Mavericks outlast Nets 129-125 in OT
NEW YORK (AP) — Luka Doncic had 41 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds, setting up three 3-pointers in overtime to send the Dallas Mavericks to a 129-125 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night.
Doncic found Tim Hardaway Jr., Maxi Kleber and Reggie Bullock for 3s in the extra period as Dallas built a nine-point lead en route to its first road victory of the season.
Doncic also had two baskets in overtime on the way to becoming the 10th player in NBA history with three 40-point triple-doubles.
Kyrie Irving scored 39 points and Kevin Durant had 37 for the Nets, who have run into some of the NBA’s most dynamic players this week and fallen short each time. First it was Ja Morant with 38 points in Memphis and then Giannis Antetokounmpo with 43 on Wednesday night in Milwaukee.
This time it was Doncic, who had scored more than 30 points in each of the first three games and now has his first 40-point game of the season.
The game was briefly delayed in overtime when a fan threw what appeared to be a cup of ice that landed on the court near the Dallas bench.
WARRIORS 123, HEAT 110
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Stephen Curry scored 10 of his 33 points in a tight fourth quarter and had nine assists and seven rebounds in Golden State's victory over Miami.
Andrew Wiggins added 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Warriors, and Klay Thompson had 19 points with five 3s. The Warriors bounced back after a 134-105 thumping in Phoenix on Tuesday night in which a frustrated Thompson was ejected for the first time in his career.
Jimmy Butler scored 27 points for Miami. Bam Adebayo had 26.
GRIZZLIES 125, KINGS 110
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Desmond Bane made six 3-pointers and scored 31 points and Memphis beat winless Sacramento.
Ja Morant added 22 points, six assists and five rebounds.
