That wraps things up in Dallas. The #Cavs start this 3-game road trip with a 114-96 over the Mavs.
A dominant performance from their bigs again. Allen with a double-double of 28 pts and 14 rebounds. Lauri Markkanen with 24 pts and 8 boards. Evan Mobley with 12 pts and 7 boards. – 10:43 PM

Maybe the best outlet passer in the league for years, Kevin Love just found Darius Garland for a breakaway and the Mavericks are down by 84-65 late in the third. – 10:12 PM

#Cavs bench is barking/woofing as the Mavs call a timeout after Darius Garland throws a lob to Jarrett Allen for the alleyoop. Allen is up to 24 points. – 10:09 PM

Luka Doncic may have to win this game on his own. And he might just do it the way he’s drilling 3-pointers. He’s got 22 points early in the third quarter, but Mavericks still behind 60-53. – 9:56 PM

Luka Dončić has made 5 threes tonight, marking the 33rd game of his career with 5+ threes.

Mavs start second half with a missed 3-pointer by Finney-Smith. Luka Doncic is 4-of-6 from 3-point land. The rest of the Mavericks are 1-of-17. – 9:48 PM

Excellent 1H for #Cavs – have held 10 straight foes to sub-40%FG – hold DAL to 36% – lead at H, 52-41; CLE, 51%FG; reb: CLE, 29, DAL, 18; DAL, 18pts in 2Q; Allen, 11pt, 5reb; Garland, 10pt, 4-8FG; Love (2-2FG), Markkanen (7reb), Mobley (3-5FG) – 7pt each; Rubio, 5pt, 6reb, 4asst. – 9:42 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
#Cavs need to watch their turnovers and how they are protecting the ball, as they have 10 turnovers here in the first half. The Mavericks have turned those into 14 pts. – 9:41 PM
Dallas Mavericks PR @MavsPR
Kristaps Porzingis finished the first half with 7 points, 5 rebounds and 4 blocks in first half, already matching his season high for a full game (4 at TOR 10/23/21).
His career high in a game is 7 blocks. pic.twitter.com/T5qu7zGe8Q9:41 PM

Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
At the half, #Cavs have a 52-41 lead over the Mavs. They are really playing with such a high level of effort and playing hard.
Cavs are also active on the glass tonight. They are outrebounding the Mavs 29-18. Jarrett Allen has 11 pts and 5 boards. Lauri Markkanen has 7 boards. – 9:41 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Mavs shooting woes continue. After shooting 58% in first half on St vs WAS. They shot 34% in 2nd. Tonight after starting 6-11, they shot just 35.6% and trail CLE 52-41. The shots are great shots. The shooting of those shots is not. Doncic 14-4-5. 2nd half soon. @theeagledallas9:37 PM

Mavericks trail 52-41 at halftime. Nobody particularly happy on the Mavs’ side. Luka hit the deck a couple times with no calls. And the rest of the Mavericks can’t buy a shot. They are 5-of-22 from 3-point range. Frankly, can’t remember the five. – 9:33 PM

Mavericks simply aren’t playing very well in the first half. They are down 39-30. Former Bull Lauri Markkanen has come alive with seven points early in the second frame. – 9:16 PM

Six of Mavs’ 10 wins have come when they have rallied from 10 or more points down. Tonight (so far) they’ve fallen behind by 11.
Dallas pulled off only seven double-digit comebacks all of last season. – 9:16 PM

#Cavs end first with a 30-23 lead over the Mavs, with an 8-0 to close the quarter. They are passing the ball well, with 6 assists on 12 made shots. Darius Garland led with 8 points and two assists, followed by Kevin Love with 7 points. Evan Mobley with an early block on Porzingis – 9:07 PM
