Kawahi Leonard anchoring the LA Clippers to a strong lead in the Western Conference Round Playoffs. An outstanding effort from Luka Doncic, but an ejection for Kristaps Porzingis cost the Mavs a consequential playoff game. But if any player stood out tonight, it was Luka. The Mavericks’ sophomore set the record for most points in a playoff debut with 42 on 13-of-21 shooting, and the Mavericks needed every one of them. They scored only 46 points in nearly a half after Porzingis was ejected. The Mavericks needed Doncic to be a superstar tonight, and he more than came through. With Porzingis coming back for Game 2, Dallas has to feel good about its chances against the Clippers in the rest of the series.
