Doncic has third triple-double as Mavericks beat Hornets

Kemba Walker had 30 points and 11 rebounds for the Hornets, who got swept by Dallas after losing to the Mavericks by 38 points at home about a month ago.

The 26-year-old discovered he had been traded from the Dallas Mavericks to the Sacramento Kings early in the fourth quarter of the Mavericks' 99-93 win over the Charlotte Hornets.

The seventh overall pick of the 2012 draft, Barnes led the Mavericks in scoring over the last two seasons and is averaging 17.7 points this season.

With around five minutes left in the quarter the Hornets called a timeout shortly after Barnes had hit a three and doubling down with a smart two.

Here are a few trade ideas from me personally that I think the Mavericks could look into before the deadline on Thursday.

The Kings are reportedly interested in signing Barnes long-term, though he has a player option for the 2019-20 season.

"He's a better man than me, for sure", Nowitzki said according to ESPN.

"Everybody else would have bounced".

Dorian Finney-Smith recorded his second career double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Maxi Kleber and Dwight Powell each had 11. He's just a genuinely good dude and he's obviously got bonds with some of these players here for life.

As the first half of the season came and went and the back end of the Dallas Mavericks 82-game sprint began, it was clear that the team needed to change something. Marvin Williams, Nicolas Batum, Bismack Biyombo and Jeremy Lamb combined for 36 points on 14-of-37 shooting.
