Mavs’ worst loss of the season
NEW YORK – The Dallas Mavericks will probably have a hard time forgetting the game against the Brooklyn Nets. After a 30-point loss to the Grizzlies just two days ago the Mavs suffered a 39-points loss in NYC. Two losses in three days by a combined 69 points.
“It was ugly from start to finish,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “When you lose every quarter of an NBA game, you certainly haven’t done what you need to do. It’s a very disappointing night.” The Mavs fell to 27-36 and lost for the seventh time in their last eight games.
Luka Dončić finished with 16 points, six rebounds and one assist. Dončić whipped up a buzzer-beater shot from half-court just before halftime.
