Doncic strikes gold in Madison

Nothing better than Madison to smile again. Dallas Mavericks recovered happiness with a resounding victory against New York Knicks (100-121), who are fighting tooth and nail to stay one more season out of the playoffs. It would be the second year in a row. The ninth time in the last decade. This triumph puts some ointment on an open wound in a franchise that came to the Mecca of basketball with nine losses in ten games, a balance that condemned them to stay out, even, of the play in.

However, the Texans cannot throw the bells on the fly. The New York thermometer is not the best to see if the fever has reduced. It simply serves to feel better, to be able to get out of bed and take a walk around the house. Liquids and medicines should still be kept on the nightstand.

And if Dallas gets the smile back, Luka Doncic does too. The Slovenian point guard did not start off smoothly, colliding with Mitchell Robinson in his penetrationsa pillar in the first half for the Knicks, who took advantage of the fact that the rival star could not find any facilities (only 11 points at halftime) to open a gap on the scoreboard: 59-52 with Julius Randle as executor: 21 points.

Doncic began to carburete after the return of the changing rooms following the trail of Tim Hardaway Jr., who wanted to record his name in his old home with 17 points in the third quarter (closed with 28). He lashed out from the perimeter (8 of 13) to, first, tie at 68 and, then, for his team to leave slowly. With one of the squires carbing on him, Doncic decided to step up and kill the Knicks.

He took the baton and made 19 of his 30 goals in that period. And the game, broken: partial 15-41 in those 12 minutes, 2-20 in seven minutes, and 74-93 to close the fourth. The Slovenian added 7 assists and 8 rebounds. The last quarter was a carousel so that the less usual ones had opportunities. Dallas smiles and Madison boos.
