Last night in the much-anticipated matchup of Zion Williamson and Luka Doncic, round one went the way of Luka. Dallas took down New Orleans 127-123 in overtime last night. Luka finished with 30 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists in the game. That triple-double makes 22 for Luka which puts him one ahead of Jason Kidd for the franchise record.
Dallas also set a franchise record for the most blocked shots in one half. The Mavs blocked 11 shots in the first half. Lost in all the hype was Kristaps Porzingas who finishes with 34 points and 12 rebounds.
And the Dallas stars will start a home and home series with the Nashville Predators tonight in Nashville. They will play each other Saturday in Dallas as well.
