Topscorer of the game was once again Luka Doncic. The Shooting Guard of the Mavs managed a double-double with 24 points and 14 rebounds, plus eight assists. His fifth triple-double of the season missed the Slovene only because he was spared in the last quarter and hardly came into use. In the third quarter alone, he scored 14 points.
Maxi Kleber scored a good eleven points and four rebounds to the victory, Kristaps Porzingis was not used because of a knee injury. On the Grizzlies side, Jaren convinced Jackson Jr. with 23 points. Rookie Ja Morant has been spared.
Also successful was Daniel Theis with the Boston Celtics. The international came in at 135: 115 at the San Antonio Spurs on eight points. However, for the time being, Boston will miss Allstar Gordon Hayward, who suffered a left-hand fracture against the Spurs.
