Doncic, Porzingis Lead Mavs To OT Win While Herro Downs Pistons

Jonathan Grant | November 24th, 2021

It was far from the busiest night of the NBA season on Tuesday, but there were still four games on the slate. So, that gives us plenty to talk about. Leading off will be the Dallas Mavericks’ 112-104 overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers. As you would expect, their European powers of Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis played a major role in this victory. The latter scored 30 while Doncic had 26 and was just a rebound and an assist shy of a triple-double.

Mavs Moneyball

Reggie Jackson had 31 to lead all scorers and Paul George had 26 for the Clippers, but they were outscored 9-1 in the OT period, proving they just “never got going.” Meanwhile, the Miami Heat also got themselves a win on the evening, defeating the Detroit Pistons 100-92 on the road. Having just seen a four-game winning run come to a close, they got their fifth in six outings as Tyler Herro went for 31 points off the bench to help them come from behind late in the contest. The Heat outscored their hosts 33-16 in the final 12 minutes, underlining why they were the victors in the end. The other two games saw the New York Knicks defeat the Los Angeles Lakers 106-100 at MSG despite Russell Westbrook posting a triple-double and the Portland Trail Blazers, led by CJ McCollum’s 32-point display, beat the Denver Nuggets 119-100.
