Smith and reserve forward Dorian Finney-Smith both finished with 13 points and Wesley Matthews had 12. Leonard said. "Our defense got stagnant". He once again turned the fourth quarter into a case for his inclusion, scoring 13 points, including a coast-to-coast dunk that gave Dallas a 99-93 lead. The Mavericks' free-throw shooting (23 of 34 for 67.6 percent) also burned them down the stretch.
The 35 points were a career high for Doncic, who turns 20 on February 28. From the bottom, the Raptors had been able to shot up to 48 percent. "It's a bit of an uncharacteristic thing". He leads all rookies in points per game (20.2) and minutes per game (32.1).
Doncic, who turns 20 on February 28, is now the first teenager in National Basketball Association history to have multiple triple-doubles (Markelle Fultz has the only other triple-double by a teenager).
Mavericks: Smith received a technical foul in the first quarter when, after scoring a lay-up over a Serge Ibaka, flexed his muscles over the fallen Raptors player.
But it wasn't enough, as the veteran Raptors showed the Mavericks why they have their sights set on competing for a championship as Dallas looks to the future.
