LOS ANGELES -- Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic got an early start on his postgame treatment Wednesday night, wrapping a large bag of ice around his sprained right knee midway through the fourth quarter.

Doncic had already put the finishing touches on his best performance of this first-round series. He recorded 35 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists despite playing through illness and injury to lead the Mavs to a 123-93 rout of the LA Clippers in a pivotal Game 5, hours after acknowledging that he would "probably not" play on his sprained knee if this were the regular season.
