Luka Doncic posted his sixth triple-double of the NBA 2018-19 Regular Season and Dirk Nowitzki poured a season-high 21 points for the Dallas Mavericks that beat the Golden State Warriors on the road. It was the biggest loss of the season for the hosts.

Doncic, 20, went off for 23 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists against the defending champions and only needed 27 minutes to do so. He sat the entire fourth quarter, but was 6/14 from the field, 4/11 from three-point range. He also tallied three steals at the Oracle Arena.

Nowitzki, 40, likely played his last game against the Warriors and received a standing ovation. “Great memories, bad memories here. This has always been a fun building, a fun atmosphere to play. I’ll always remember this building.” he mentioned afterwards.
