The Dallas Mavericks barely won Game 6 against the Utah Jazz.

Luckily, they escaped the commendable inbound play of the Jazz as Bojan Bogdanovic missed a wide-open potential game-winning trey.

They’ve sent Utah home, but it means more than that because this is the first playoff series win for Dallas since 2011.

That was when the great Dirk Nowitzki gave them an NBA championship over the Miami Heat big three.

Luka Doncic led the squad in Game 6 with almost a triple-double, 24 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists.

While it is still a long shot, can they do what the 2011 Dallas squad did?

Well, of course, we’ll find out.
