The Mavericks win 112-109 to get their first victory over Golden State since December of 2015, behind the efforts of Luka Doncic (24 points ) and Harrison Barnes (23 points .

He said he didn't get too low after the Clippers loss and was no more motivated than normal on Friday, even if his performance suggested he had a little extra fire.

"It's just one game -- we lost one game," Doncic said. "We shouldn't be worried about that. You go to the next game and pretend like nothing happened. I'm anxious to go out there every night. I'm excited about every game. That's me."

Phoenix has lost six of its last seven games. Kelly Oubre Jr. led the Suns with 22 points and 10 rebounds, and Ricky Rubio added 21 points and nine assists.

"We didn't play our game the last quarter," Rubio said. "I think we got focused on the wrong things, things we can't control."

Doncic had 14 points, six rebounds and six assists in the first quarter as the Mavericks edged to a 53-50 halftime lead. Oubre had 13 for the Suns.

Carlisle recently moved Hardaway into the starting lineup and the 6-foot-5 guard has responded with a string of big games. Over the past two weeks, he's had 16 points against Cleveland, 31 against Houston and now 26 against the Suns.

"It's seizing the opportunity and being prepared," Hardaway said.

A FREE THROW ADVENTURE

Suns forward Frank Kaminsky inadvertently contributed to a rally with two of the worst free throws of his professional career.

Kaminsky -- a respectable 76% career free throw shooter -- had a stunning air ball on his first of two free throws during the third quarter. He overcompensated on the second, pounding it off the backboard and rim before getting his own offensive rebound.

The extra possession led to a huge dunk by Devin Booker to put the Suns up 69-63.
