Luka Doncic starred as the Dallas Mavericks toppled the New Orleans Pelicans, snaring the most points in his career.

Luka Doncic scored a career-high 46 points, Kristaps Porzingis added 36 and the Dallas Mavericks overcame Zion Williamson’s career-best 36 points in a 143-130 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans last night.

Doncic, who also had 12 assists and eight rebounds, connected on three of four Dallas three-pointers in just 93 seconds as the Mavericks made 13 of their first 15 shots in the third quarter. The Mavericks matched their season best with a fourth-consecutive victory and beat the Pelicans for the fifth-straight time.

Williamson set a New Orleans franchise record by making all 10 of his shots in the first half and finished 14 of 15. His only miss was a wide-open three early in the second half.

Brandon Ingram scored 30 points for the Pelicans in what was supposed to be the second meeting with Dallas this season. The first, scheduled for January 11, was postponed because of COVID-19 issues.

The Pelicans gave up a franchise-record 25 three-pointers for the second-consecutive game, this time while allowing the most points they have this season. Chicago made 25 in its 129-116 victory two nights earlier.
