When you're in the midst of the longest losing streak you've had in nearly three years, the only way to potentially get to a true turning point is by getting that first win by whatever means necessary.
The Dallas Mavericks achieved that on Tuesday night, as they defeated the Golden State Warriors 116-113 at American Airlines Center. Although the Warriors are just 11-11 on the season, they had won seven out of their last 10 games coming into their matchup with the Mavs, looking much more like the defending champions who ousted Dallas in the Western Conference Finals.
“It was great," said Luka Doncic, who put up yet another historic 40-point triple-double in the win. "I was participating and giving it everything I had. I was really tired at the end. We needed this game. We needed this win. I think we deserved this win and we for sure needed this win.”
