The game went down to the wire, too, with Dallas prevailing after Klay Thompson was off the mark on a potential buzzer-beater to tie the game.

Doncic was the main story, however, becoming the fourth player in NBA history to record at least eight 40-point triple-doubles and the second-most before turning 25, trailing just Oscar Robertson.
