The Dallas Mavericks' first game at Disney World ended like so many others this season: Luka Doncic's triple-double (28 points, 13 rebounds, 10 assists) and defeat in a tight finish. The Mavs always find a way to stumble two steps from the goal, but this time the effort was commendable: they managed to send into overtime a duel that they won by 7 points with 45.2 seconds to go in the fourth quarter. They fell 149-153 against the Houston Rockets.
A fast triple from James Harden (49 points), a couple of bad attacks and a rebound that nobody protected. Little by little the Mavs and the Rockets were meriting to tighten a game that seemed already sentenced. Robert Covington's clapping and the triple that Doncic missed on the horn sent the duel to an extension in which the command had already changed hands.
Despite the triple-double (the 15th of the season), Doncic was no stranger to defeat. The Slovenian did not know how to avoid the Mavericks' new collapse in a final stretch. Although they are one of the best-oiled attacks in the league, they are also one of the poorest in tight ends : they have lost 17 of the 22 games that have been resolved by 5 points or less.
Up to two times it seemed that Giannis Antetokounmpo was eliminated from the game between Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics. First for a possible attack on Daniel Theis . Then, for a possible offensive foul by Marcus Smart. The first was discarded. The second, which came to beep and was the sixth, was rectified after reviewing it.
"Honestly, I think we all know what happened. It was Giannis' sixth fault (36 points, 15 rebounds, 7 assists) and they didn't want to get him out of the game. Let's call things by their name," said Marcus Smart , the man who had forced that key foul with the score tied at 107 with less than two minutes to go. The Bucks ended up winning 119-112.
He was not the only one. His partner Jaylen Brown published on Instagram a photomontage in which Antetokounmpo appears hand in hand with referee Ken Mauer.
