Sabonis, Brogdon lead Pacers past Doncic-less Mavs, 109-94

DALLAS (AP) — Domantas Sabonis had 22 points and 15 rebounds, Malcolm Brogdon also scored 22 points, and the Indiana Pacers hit early and often from long range in a 109-94 win over the Dallas Mavericks. The Pacers hit 20 3-pointers led by Brogdon’s 6-for-9 effort, matching the franchise record they previously set this season, to win for the fourth time in their last five games. Kristaps Porzingis had 31 points and a season-high 18 rebounds for the Mavericks, who played without All-Star guard Luka Doncic — among the top five in the NBA in scoring and assists — due to back tightness. Tim Hardaway Jr., second among NBA reserves in scoring, had 16 points.
