Sacramento went to the big break with a five-point advantage (65:70), and then we watched the match with the score tied until the middle of the third quarter. That’s when Sabonis and Fox took matters into their own hands and with help Malik Monkwho scored four three-pointers in key moments of the game for his 12 points, gave his team a big enough advantage that the home strategist Jason Kidd decided to pull the Dallas hitting tandem from the game Luka Dončića and Kyrie Irving.

The Slovenian ace was not in such an attacking mood this time, although he was once again the most effective individual of his team. In 32 minutes of play, Dončić scored 25 points, but with a worse shot from the field (7/19, 3/7 for three-pointers), and at the same time contributed 10 rebounds and seven assists. The American organizer of the game added 23 points, and in cooperation with the captain of the Slovenian national team, he could not find an answer to the excellent game of De’Aaron Fox.
