Luka Doncic flirted with another triple-double, but could not lead the Dallas Mavericks to the win over the Portland Trail Blazers (131-134).

Doncic posted 25 points (8/19 shooting), eight rebounds and 10 assists, coming very close to the triple-double.

For his part, Kristaps Porzingis added a team-high 36 points for Dallas, but Damian Lillard was unstoppable and tied his career high (61 points) to lift the Blazers to the eighth place in the West.
