The Dallas Mavericks come away with a huge upset over the Cleveland Cavaliers just a day after besting the interstate rival San Antonio Spurs. Words aren’t enough to describe this win, but I will sure try.
This is a new Dallas Mavericks team and tonight made it vividly clear to all the fans that were lucky enough to watch it. After a stunning victory over Gregg Popovich’s San Antonio Spurs, the Mavs traveled back home for the big matchup against Cleveland.
Even though the Cavs haven’t been playing their best ball of the season, it does not change the fact that it was a formidable game that the Mavs needed to come in ready to play against. They did exactly that.
Dallas won the game 104-97, which was closer than it probably could’ve been but an amazing win nonetheless. Harrison Barnes led all scorers with 24 points and also led the game in rebounds with 11. Wesley Matthews followed with 21 points, while Yogi Ferrell sets a new career high with 19 of his own.
