Mark Cuban's Response Is Getting Global
The Los Angeles Lakers stunned the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday by overturning a 27-point lead to defeat them 111-108.
Anthony Davis made a fadeaway shot over Luka Doncic in the final second to give the Lakers a three-point advantage.
The video team for ESPN cut to Mark Cuban, whose expression said it all.
The Mavericks owner appeared, to put it mildly, unimpressed after seeing his team blow a sizable advantage against a straight Western Conference rival.
Davis recorded 30 points, 15 boards, and three blocks to cap an impressive effort. Despite making just 6-of-34 three-point attempts, the Lakers managed to prevail in an exciting game.
In a league that is closely contested, every game becomes crucial in the final run. For the No. 6 spot.
the Mavericks currently hold a slim one-game advantage over the Timberwolves, Jazz, and Warriors.
Dallas may not only lose its postseason position but also slip further into the play-in competition.
The Lakers are still the last club standing, but they are only 2.5 games and one game behind the Mavericks and the 10th-place New Orleans Pelicans, respectively.
Dallas has lost four of its last five games, all against teams from the Western Conference, despite recently obtaining Kyrie Irving.
