The Memphis Grizzlies’ 11-game winning streak is no more after the Dallas Mavericks routed Ja Morant and company 112-85 on Friday night in Memphis.

The Grizzlies entered the game 11-0 SU and 10-1 ATS in their previous 11 games to move up to no. 3 in the Western Conference team standings. However, they also faced a surging Dallas team that had gone 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in their own last 10 games.

Dallas shut down Memphis in the second half, limiting the Grizzlies to only 30 total points in the final two quarters. The Mavs broke the game wide open in the third quarter, outscoring the Grizzlies 34-18 after a close first half where Memphis led by five.

As usual, the star of the night for Dallas was its 22-year old phenom Luka Doncic.

Doncic Triple Double Cashes the OVER in 3 Prop Bets

Doncic finished the game with 27 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists. That production helped Dallas prop bettors to cash in on the OVER of three of Luka’s game prop bets: Over 25.5 points, Over 8.5 rebounds, and over 8.5 assists.

The triple-double was also the 80th in the history of the Dallas Mavericks franchise and impressively, 40 of those have been produced by Doncic. The Slovenian star also becomes the 11th player in NBA history to record at least 40 triple-doubles and the 2nd fastest player in NBA history to reach 40 triple-doubles at only 226 games played. Only the great Oscar Robertson ( 92 games ) accomplished it faster.

For the season, Doncic is averaging 24.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 8.9 assists per game. But over his last five games, Luka has put up a triple-double average of 23.4 points, 10.4 rebounds, and 10.4 assists per game. More importantly, the Mavericks are 4-1 SU during that stretch and have covered the betting spread in four out of their last five games.
