2. The Dallas Mavericks had their second-largest win in team history
Now for some good news… for the Dallas Mavericks, that is.
The Mavericks’ 51-point victory over the LA Clippers is their second-biggest winning margin in team history. That’s almost as good as what the Dirk Nowitzki-led Mavs accomplished back in 2014.
Luka Doncic orchestrated this win to perfection and he didn’t have to play a whole lot, either. He played 26 minutes and had 24 points, nine rebounds and eight assists.
For a team that was looking for its first win of the season, the Mavericks were absolutely determined to take down whoever was in their way on Sunday. Unfortunately for the Clippers, they were not ready for what was coming.
1. The Dallas Mavericks kept their 40-point lead for the longest stretch over the last 25 seasons
Mainatining a 40-point lead over more than 30 minutes is an incredible testament to the Dallas Mavericks’ focus throughout the game. They never let up and kept pouring in the points. At the same time, the LA Clippers kept missing shot after shot.
Luka Doncic played a near-perfect game to be able to lead his team to this astounding win. If this is a preview of things to come for the Mavericks, then other teams need to be warned – and they have been.
