‘Irving’s happy Dallas debut’ Dallas defeated LAC despite Doncic’s absence

Irving successfully landed in Dallas.

The Dallas Mavericks won the 2022-2023 NBA regular season LA Clippers 110-104 at Crypto.com Arena on the 9th (hereinafter Korean time).

It was a game that attracted a lot of attention as Kyrie Irving’s Dallas debut, who recently moved the team through a trade. Irving continued to show off his skills in his first game after his transfer, recording 24 points and 5 assists to lead the team to victory.

Luka Doncic was missing, but Dallas’ potential was strong with Irving. He hit the Clippers with 17 3-pointers, and besides Irving, Reggie Bullock (18 points), Tim Hardaway Jr. (19 points) and Josh Green (14 points) performed evenly. Doncic smiled as he watched his teammates win from the bench.

The Clippers scored 24 points from Norman Powell, 21 points from Terrence Mann, 20 points from Paul George and 18 points from Kawhi Leonard, but were defeated. 

Dallas’ firepower exploded from the first quarter. In the first quarter alone, nine 3-pointers hit the Clippers. Reggie Block scored 15 points, including five 3-pointers, and Tim Hardaway Jr. also contributed. Irving, who scored the first goal as a mid-range jumper, did his part by making two 3-pointers. The first quarter ended with Dallas leading 41-25.

Even at the beginning of the second quarter, the score gap was maintained. After taking a break, Irving succeeded in making a breakthrough based on his unique graceful movements and even burst into a deep three.

Then, at the end of the first half, Terrence Man and Ivica Zubachi showed off their presence and launched a counterattack. With the flow broken, Dallas ended the half with a score of 60-52.

As the third quarter began, Dallas seemed to be running away again as Irving hit a clean 3-pointer. However, in the Clippers, Leonard, who had been silent in the first half, came back to life in the third quarter and drove Dallas. Leonard, who showed off his spirited mid-range jumper sense, dominated the third quarter. Dallas, who barely kept the lead, finished the third quarter 81-78. 바카라사이트

Entering the fourth quarter, Dallas scored with Theo Pinson’s surprise performance. The Clippers continued to fail in the pursuit flow and hesitated. In the meantime, in Dallas, Pinson, who came out as the solver of the attack, made a 10-point gap with a 3-point shot. 

However, the Clippers did not collapse easily either. Norman Powell continued to score and pressure Dallas. Dallas, who could not easily block Powell, was chased down to the bottom of the chin again. 

Dallas, driven to the defensive, scored goals from Dwight Powell and Tim Hardaway with organic passes. Then, Irving cleverly induced a free throw. Irving, who caught fire, even scored a rim attack with his soft movements, widening the gap to 106-97. Afterwards, as the Clippers followed, Dallas did not leave room for Hardaway’s three-point shot.
