LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Despite nursing a sprained left ankle for the past 36 hours, Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic not only played, he dominated Sunday.
Doncic finished with 43 points on 18-of-31 shooting, and made the game-winning 3-pointer as time expired in a 135-133 overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 4.
Doncic did this while the Mavericks missed center Kristaps Porzingis because of right knee soreness. Doncic also did this while the Clippers' Kawhi Leonard had 32 points on a 10-of-22 clip and Lou Williams added a playoff career-high 36 points. Doncic, who had a run-in with Montrezl Harrell in Game 3, shared a hug with him before the game.
Head coach Rick Carlisle said Porzingis would get an MRI later Sunday.
The series is tied 2-2, and Game 5 is Tuesday.
