The Dallas Mavericks made it look easy as they crushed the New Orleans Pelicans 125-107 on May 12. Luka Doncic led the way with 33 points. Tim Hardaway Jr. stayed white-hot, and Kristaps Porzingis looked fantastic in his return to the floor in an incredible all-around performance from the Mavs.
It was an important win for Dallas too. They lowered their magic number to finish in the top six down to one. Dallas and Portland have identical records with the Lakers one game back in the standings.
