Lakers Defeat Mavs In OT Thriller

Jonathan Grant | November 2nd, 2019

Make no mistake about it. Friday night’s meeting between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks saw three of the NBA’s biggest stars on the court at one time. Of course, you have Anthony Davis and LeBron James out there for the Lakers. And they did what you would hope and expect that they would, combining for 68 total points in a 119-110 overtime victory. But don’t forget about Luka Doncic, either, who played his part in making the game as entertaining as it was.

Doncic, just like James, would finish the night with a triple-double, scoring 31, grabbing 13 rebounds, and dishing out 15 assists. James had a bigger night, however, with 39, 12, and 16, all as he led the Lakers back from a ten-point deficit in the fourth quarter in Dallas. It was Danny Green, the new big shot ‘Bob,’ who had tied the game with just seconds remaining with a three-pointer in regulation. Once OT began, it was all one-way traffic, with Davis, who had 29 points, dunking twice in a row to set the tone. The Lakers ended up taking the extra period 16-7, taking them to 4-1 on the season. The Mavericks are now 3-2.
