Dallas basketball players ended a six-game losing streak by beating Washington 119:100 in front of their home fans.

Luka Dončić excelled once again, becoming the winning team's best scorer with 23 points. The Slovene showed some versatile play, shooting 7/9 from the two point range. He stunned with a number of attacks on the glass, jump shots and playing under the rim. One time he found himself alone under the basket and made a dunk.

A 3-point shot at the buzzer
This time he had a poorer shot percentage (2/7), but he hit both his threes from fast-breaks. He made his second three-pointer at the end of the first half with a buzzer beater to make it 70:49 at half-time. This was the first time this season that the Dallas Maverics had scored 70 points in the first half.

Smith also played a great game
Dallas's play oscillated again. In the first half they led several times with a more than 20 points difference. Towards the end of the game, Washington closed in, but Dennis Smith (19 points) made three key plays. During a 6-point lead, Smith scooted past Dwight Howard and sent the ball to DeAndre Jordan, who scored. 30 seconds later, the pair collaborated once again on an alley-oop. After that Smith stole the ball and any doubt about the winner evaporated.

More and more chemistry
"This year we have not been doing well in defence; we knew that we had to be better in this respect," said Dončić after the match.
