DALLAS (AP) — Luka Doncic scored 41 points in his NBA-leading fifth triple-double, and the Dallas Mavericks beat the Golden State Warriors 116-113 on Tuesday night in the first meeting of last season’s Western Conference finalists.
The fourth quarter had plenty of playoff intensity as the Mavericks ended a four-game losing streak, their longest in two seasons under coach Jason Kidd.
The Warriors, who beat the Mavericks in five games last spring on their way to the title, lost for just the second time in seven games after a slow start to their season.
Doncic also had 12 rebounds and 12 assists in his 51st career triple-double.
DETROIT (AP) — Julius Randle scored a season-high 36 points, and the Knicks extended their win streak against the Pistons to 11 games.
The Pistons were missing two starters — Cade Cunningham (shin) and Jalen Ivey (knee) — but Bogdanovic and Stewart returned from injuries.
