The Dallas Mavericks were hoping to head into the All-Star break on a high note. They hosted the Sacramento Kings in their final game on Feb. 12. It promised to be an exciting night inside the American Airlines Center.
Luka Doncic returned after missing seven straight games with a sprained ankle. The 20-year-old star was back to 100 percent and ready to lead Dallas to a win. It also paved the way for him to play in both the Rising Stars and All-Star game this weekend in Chicago.
The Mavs jumped out an early lead on Wednesday and never looked back.
