Denver’s Will Barton thought he had a lane to the rim — he pushed the ball up, and the Dallas defense was not set. The seas parted.

Then Dallas’ Salah Mejri closed it up and sent Barton’s shot flying with a powerful rejection.

This was Dallas’ night, they got 25 from Wesley Matthews, and 18 from Harrison Barnes on 11 shots, and the Mavs picked up the 112-92 win at home.
