The Dallas Mavericks pulled off one of the most lopsided wins so far in the National Basketball Association season.

Playing at home at the American Airlines Center and in front of a national television audience through ESPN, the Mavericks romped the hapless Golden State Warriors.

The game was basically a one-sided affair as Golden State never led the entire game. However, it was the finish of the game that made Twitter abuzz for possibly trolling purposes.

With both teams already emptying their benches and the outcome already settled, Ryan Broekhoff scored a triple with 54.3 seconds left in the game to up Dallas' lead to 50, 142-92. After Jalen Brunson grabbed the rebound off an Omari Spellman miss from beyond the arc, the team ran out the shot clock with respect to the game.

However, in the next possession, Jordan Poole scored on a teardrop with 13.4 seconds left for what would be the final tally. Dallas formally walked away victorious, 142-94.

But thanks to Poole's late shot, the hashtag #DidntLoseBy50 suddenly trended on Twitter.

One Twitter user later called out the Memphis Grizzlies with the said hashtag.

The history of the hashtag #DidntLoseBy50 dated back to 2015 when Golden State, which was still hosting games at the Oracle Arena in Oakland and had Steph Curry and Klay Thompson very healthy, blasted Memphis, 119-69.

A few nights later, interestingly in another ESPN broadcast, the Warriors edged the Los Angeles Clippers, 112-108. After the game, however, the Clippers' Twitter curator posted the final scoreline with the hashtag #DidntLoseBy50.

The social media manager eventually deleted the tweet, but many other Twitter users, from fans to reporters, were quick to capture the said post.

Obviously, some of the players suiting up for the Grizzlies that time did not like the said tweet. Courtney Lee called it "childish", while Tony Allen wanted the Clippers' Twitter administrator to be axed.

Even the Clippers' coach, Doc Rivers, aired his dismay about the tweet, calling it “tasteless and classless.”

But regardless of whether the Mavericks won by one, 48, or 50 points, it could be safe to say that the Warriors are calling this a season.
