Dallas led throughout the entire contest on Monday night, and built up a quick 18-point lead in the first quarter. Doncic didn’t waste any time getting started, either, scoring 17 points himself in the opening period.

“Today when I slept, the nap, I dreamed I was going to score 16 in the first quarter,” Doncic said. “Then I scored 17, so I was like, ‘Dreams don’t come true.’”

While the Spurs slowly battled back, and cut the lead to just two points with 30 seconds left in the game, Doncic was there to seal the deal in the end, drilling a stepback 3-pointer over Spurs guard Bryn Forbes.

Dorian Finney-Smith had a career-high of his own on Monday night, finishing with 22 points for the Mavericks after shooting 8-of-10 from the field. Kristaps Porzingis had a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Jalen Brunson added 11 points off the bench.
