While Doncic had an all-around presence once more and produced a game-high-tying in points, he struggled from range with 1-8 3-pointers. The Mavs put their defense to great use to get the victory, forcing the Wizards to 40 points in the second half.
Boban Marjanovic played for 20+ minutes for the second time this season and delivered a double-double of 15 points and 12 rebounds. Nicolo Melli had season-highs 10 points and eight rebounds in 28 minutes as a starter.
Davis Bertans finished with 11 points and Deni Avdija (who was also tasked with guarding Doncic) had nine points and eight rebounds.
The Utah Jazz locomotive remains unstoppable, now riding on a 9 – 0 winning streak after the 137 – 91 blowout over the Orlando Magic. Quin Snyder’s players set a record for most 3-pointers in a half with 18 in the first two periods in a brilliant offensive output overall.
Bojan Bogdanovic did his part with 4-6 3-pointers and 17 points while Rudy Gobert had 11 points, six rebounds and four blocks. Ersan Ilyasova notched nine points and five boards.
Jusuf Nurkic contributed nine points and eight rebounds to the Blazers‘ victory.
After his career-high 33 points, Theo Maledon was held to seven points and 1-12 shots by the Blazers. Aleksej Pokusevski had eight points, four assists and a bit of similar shooting troubles (3-13 from the field) with his young French teammate. Svi Mykhailiuk scored three points.
