Doncic, Barea help Mavs snap OKC's win streak

Rookie Luka Doncic scored 22 points and veteran J.J. Barea added 21 off the bench, including 16 in a first-half surge, as the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 111-96 Saturday night.

The Thunder's seven-game streak comes to an end with a flag performance in Dallas. The Mavs shot 56 percent to OKC's 39 percent and while the Thunder grabbed an insane 26 offensive rebounds, there just wasn't enough consistent offense throughout. Next up for OKC is a home game Monday against the Suns, with a chance Russell Westbrook returns for that one.

Luka Doncic appeared to bang knees with Jerami Grant and after limping back up the floor just sat down in pain and was checked by Mavs medical staff. It looks like he's OK, though, as he's staying on the Mavs bench.

With the score tied in the closing seconds Wednesday at Staples Center, Mavericks guard Wesley Matthews was called for a foul on Lakers star LeBron James, who sank a game-winning free throw with 2.1 seconds left. “I believe he did (know the situation), and I believe he just got aggressive,” Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said of Matthews. Said Matthews, “I can't put us in a position for [the officials] to make that call. I knew the situation, wanted to make a play. I was ready to make a play. I can't put us in a position for them to make that call.”

Mavericks rookie sensation Luka Dončić said he talked to Lakers star LeBron James during Wednesday's game at Staples Center about getting his jersey afterward, which Dončić did. "I always wanted his jersey," Dončić said of a player that he has long idolized. "It was something special to me." LeBron signed it, in part, with the message, "Strive For Greatness." Of his matchup with James, Dončić said, "It's special. It's very special. I was waiting for this game, and it was very special to me."
