Doncic gives Lakers cruel welcome to December, snapping win-streak

Rick Carlisle Luka Doncic

More than a year later, Doncic again entered Staples Center to face a childhood idol, this time as the reigning Rookie of the Year, and sealed a 114-100 win that snapped the James and the Los Angeles Lakers' 10-game winning streak on the Lakers' home court.

Luka Doncic tied a career-high with 42 points in the Dallas Mavericks' 120-113 win over the Phoenix Suns, becoming the third player in league history to average a 30-point triple-double over one calendar month.

The Mavericks have been one of the suprise teams in the National Basketball Association to this point, and now currently sit 12-6, good for a tie with Houston for the fourth seed in the West.

It was just a regular season game, but still the end result was impressive. "And then finishing at the basket, some of those shots, I thought we played good defense, he just got around us".

And as will be a theme for the month of December, it's not going to get any easier from here. We know what type of team we are, we know now.

Los Angeles got no closer than 14 the rest of the way.

Afterward, the 19-year-old Slovenian who was drafted No. 3 overall in 2018, raced to the Lakers' locker room to secure James' game-worn jersey and a signature. But we didn't really have an offensive pop the whole quarter, coming out of halftime.

Tim Hardaway Jr. added 26 points for the Mavericks, but the team's usual second-leading scorer, Kristaps Porzingis, finished with just two points and missed all eight of his shots from the field. Dwight Powell had 15 points and nine rebounds, and Justin Jackson scored 15 points.

Anthony Davis had 27 points and 10 boards for the Lakers. Alex Caruso added 10 points off the bench, with no other Lakers scoring in double figures on the night. James and Davis both expect to know more about their roster by January, and this opening game underlined the importance of a consistent effort, particularly on defence.
