Luka Dončić scored 17 points, had seven rebounds and six assists, but did not have the three point shot working last night, and that frustration reached its apex at halftime when Luka tore his jersey open walking off the court. After that in third quarter Luka pulled off play of the night, when he dribbled behind his back at the free-throw line and drove for a left-handed layup. Harrison Barnes had 20 points and Dennis Smith Jr had 17 points and 8 rebounds.DeAndre Jordan added 13 points, 16 rebounds and five blocks for the 21-26 Mavs, who broke a four-game losing skid.
