Willie Cauley-Stein was in fifth grade when he packed up his bag for a trek across Spearville, Kansas, a tiny blip of a town — population: 800 — just up US-50 from Dodge City, which passes for a metropolis in a blur of flatlands and windmills. Cauley-Stein was headed to a class, in which he was enrolled by his grandmother, at a family friend’s house. The snacks were good, he thought, so it was worth the walk. His bag brimmed with notebooks and pastels. It was his introduction to art.
That play didn’t win the Mavs the game — Denver’s Nikola Jokic, a proven premier closer, finished his clutch scoring flurry with an OT-forcing jumper over Willie Cauley-Stein at the regulation buzzer — but Dallas definitely would have lost without it. “Everybody [on the Mavs] trusts every teammate,” said Doncic, who was a rebound shy of his second straight triple-double. “I think it was a great shot. Even if he would missed it, it was a great shot. I’ll do it every day.”
