The 10 weeks of absence weighed on

Anthony Davis

, who returned to the courts after his injury with a poor background in the loss of the Lakers in Dallas (115-110).

The game was dominated by

Luka Doncic

(30 points, nine rebounds and eight assists) although the bad news for the Texas franchise came with the injury of

Kristaps Porzingis


It had been 30 games out for Davis, injured in the right calf and heels, his longest period since his league debut in 2012. So

Frank Vogel

scheduled a smooth comeback, with 17 minutes on the court, where the center could only score two of his 10 pitches.

Despite the setback, Davis' reappearance should be seen as a step forward for the reigning champions, who will have an immediate rematch option on Saturday, again at the American Airlines Center.

"It was better than expected. I feel really good," said the eight-time All-Star, frustrated, despite everything, by his absence from the track throughout the second half.

Doncic's leadership, well supported by

Josh Richardson




Dwight Powell

, allowed Dallas to dominate from the start and reach the break 11 points clear.

However, the Lakers closed the gap and reached the last three minutes with only four points behind (110-106).

The Californians, despite the notable contribution of

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

(29 points) and

Dennis Schroder

(25 points, 13 assists) and

Andre Drummond

(14 points, 19 rebounds), did not know how to complete the comeback.

And they will still have to wait at least two weeks to have

Lebron James

, injured in the right ankle again.

Physical care is also essential for the Mavericks, seventh in the West and always on the lookout for Porzingis status.

The Latvian, scorer of 19 points, was injured in the third quarter and could no longer return to the track.

After missing the first nine games of the season due to a sore right knee, Porzingis has already played 19 games off this season.
