The result prevented the Mavericks from sweeping a season series from the Spurs for the first time in the rivalry’s 41-season history — but more importantly, it was a stinging defeat for the Mavericks (29-23) in their ongoing quest to climb into the top six in the Western Conference. Instead of winning for the seventh time in their last eight games, the Mavericks fell to a Texas rival for the second time in four days. Houston and San Antonio are otherwise winless in April, making the two defeats all the more damaging. “He made a hell of a shot, over a good defender,” Luka Doncic said of DeRozan.
“Going for the block, in my head I saw that clearly I was going to get the block,” Porzingis said. “But he’s good at leaning back and I hit his head a little bit. It’s a tough one, obviously. I wanted to be out there. Even with everything we had a chance to win the game. Doncic (29 points, seven assists) tied the score at 117 on a shot from the lane with 19.4 seconds left, setting up DeRozan’s heroics. “DeMar hit a huge shot,” Porzingis said. “Hat’s off to him. That just shows how hard it is to win every night, against an NBA team.”
