Luka Doncic, who does not get out of the fight for the MVP of the regular league, continued in his visit to washington with the support of Spanish fans, who were able to closely follow the individual warm-up of the Slovenian. The cries of support in Spanish and the presence of some madridista shirts aroused the complicity of Doncic, who in one of the shooting exercises he made a reverse, while making a sympathetic gesture towards the fans for that “Hala Madrid!” who came out of the stands.
In the matchup against the Wizards, Doncic – who did not have a proper stellar performance – nonetheless ended up with 36 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists in the Mavericks’ loss to the Wizards, 135-103. Dallas coach Jason Kidd was ejected from the game after receiving two technicals for protesting.
In the press room, Doncic declared that they had lost due to the “terrible” defense displayed on the floor. “We are not playing aggressively or energetically, especially on defense. But it’s better now than later during the playoffs.” The Mavericks are fourth in their conference, hot on the heels of the Golden State Warriors.
