Mavericks Stampede Moda Center!
Luka Doncic scored 37 points and the Dallas Mavericks shot 55.8% from the field as they crush the Portland Trail Blazers 132-98 Sunday night at Moda Center.
The 40-point margin was the largest defeat at home for the Trail Blazers in franchise-history.
Doncic connected on his first eight three-pointers of the game finishing 8-of-9 from beyond the arc and added seven rebounds and just four assists in just 30 minutes of action.
The Mavericks (22-19) scorched the Nets at 55.8% including 19-of-37 from three-point range.
Damian Lillard Led Portland (25-17) with 19 points and CJ McCollum scored 13 but combined they were 0-for-12 from distance.
The Trail Blazers made just nine of their 41 three-point attempts and finished the night at 38.2% from the field.
“I thought we started off with game pretty solid,” Lillard said. “We had the lead at the end of the first quarter. They just got it going, you know. They made a lot of threes.
“We made some mistakes and they were able to get going. And once they got going, you know, they were comfortable.
“We really depend on making threes. Anytime me, CJ and Melo go oh-for-16 or whatever, we're not gonna have much of a chance, especially when the other team shoots the way they did.”
Dallas led 65-54 at halftime and put the game away with a 19-0 run to start the third quarter.
Up Next- The Portland Trail Blazers host the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday night at Moda Center. The game is scheduled to tip off at 7:00 PM.
