• Luka Doncic has scored a total of 70 points in the span of his first two postseason games
  • The Dallas Mavericks tied the first-round series against the Los Angeles Clippers with a 127-114 victory
  • Trey Burke and Seth Curry provided crucial points for the Mavericks in the win

It was another stellar display for Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic as he led his team to a 127-114 victory against the Los Angeles Clippers. With the Mavericks win, Doncic shared that he believes his team has a chance to defeat the heavily favored LA squad.

"We've just got three left," Doncic said by way of ESPN.

The 28 points, eight rebounds and seven assists were a huge factor in the Mavericks win. This comes after a 42-point outburst that came at a loss during the first game of the series. The 21-year-old now has a total of 70 points throughout the first pair of games in the series. This output puts him above Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's record of 69 points with the most points scored in their first two postseason games.

"I think we can fight with them. Any series we go in, we're going to believe we can win, for sure. If you don't believe it, you're not supposed to be here. You've got to believe it," Doncic emphasized.

Game two was a better overall performance for the Mavericks as they also benefitted further from the services of Kristaps Porzingis. With a total output of 23 points and seven rebounds, the star big man bounced back from his game one stint where he was ejected early in the matchup due to two technical fouls.

It was a difficult second half for Doncic in game two as he played only nine minutes due to foul trouble. Fortunately for Dallas, several other players stepped up for the team.

"Then I was focused on supporting my teammates. They did a great, great job. Being on the bench, it's hard for me. I want to help my team, but we won the game. Maybe if I don't pick up that foul, we don't win the game," Doncic continued.

To add to the Mavericks attack, Trey Burke also provided as an additional scoring threat as he tallied 16 points care of his 7/11 shooting from the field. Sharpshooter Seth Curry also chipped in with 15 points, hailing a +/- ranking of +30.

The series is tied at one game apiece with Kawhi Leonard looking to retaliate and do whatever it takes to regain the advantage for the Clippers.
