Unfortunately, Kyrie Irving was unable to score just 9 points in the entire game. However, the Mavericks pressed PJ Washington to carry the offense with Doncic as he finished with 29 points. At the end of the game, Doncic was confronted by a fan near the sideline who had some choice words for the 5x All-Star. During that time, the Mavericks were also up nine points.

Luka Doncic did not retaliate against the chirping OKC fan

In such situations, it is important for players to maintain composure. Luka Doncic reveals that OKC fan spoke out against his family. “It’s been great for me, I love it. Just [that] There was a guy going courtside in my family. I don’t like that guy. You’re a grown man, you can’t do that, you know. But I didn’t do anything I just went back. But it’s crazy. It’s a grown man coming into my family. It’s kind of nuts,” He said this at the press conference.

Doncic doesn’t usually back down against such situations but this was an instance where he had to be desperate to handle things calmly. Things can get pretty heated during the playoffs, and Doncic would have gotten himself into trouble if things escalated. It was tough to handle as the Mavericks played on OKC’s home turf.

The Mavericks tied the series at 1-1 in Games 3 and 4, which will be held at the American Airlines Center. Dallas is 2-1 at home in the playoffs, and winning their next two games will be monumental for the team. In Game 2, we saw the Mavericks’ bench unit put up more numbers offensively. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 17 points. His presence in the third quarter also gave the Mavericks a double-digit lead.
