Doncic, Porzingis carry Mavericks to 2-0 start

NEW ORLEANS — For the first time in 15 years, the Dallas Mavericks are 2-0 to begin a season. And they have done so on the backs of their two superstars, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis.

Doncic finished with a triple-double and Porzingis came up big on both sides of the floor as the Mavericks took down the New Orleans Pelicans 123-116.

“It means a lot,” Doncic said of the 2-0 start. “Everybody is happy after this win. It’s just the start. We have to keep going and hopefully at the same time make the playoffs.”

It was the ninth career triple-double for Doncic, who finished with 25 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. That ups his own NBA record for the most by a player before turning 21 years old.
