SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Luka Doncic had 33 points and 12 rebounds in his return from a seven-game absence because of a sprained ankle, leading the Dallas Mavericks to a 130-111 victory over the Sacramento Kings. Doncic added eight assists in the All-Star starter's final game before the All-Star break.
It's the second time Doncic has missed games with a sprained right ankle. Kristaps Porzingis had 27 points and 13 rebounds with his fellow Euro star back. Buddy Hield scored 22 points for the Kings. Sacramento was never closer than 11 in the second half.
February 20th, the Kings will attempt to rebound with a home game against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Dallas Mavericks will try to turn this win into a win streak with an away game in Orlando against the Magic.
