Luka Doncic scored 24 points, grabbed eight rebounds and passed the 5,000-point plateau for his career as the Dallas Mavericks defeated the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers 110-90 Friday night.

With his seventh point of the game, Doncic, who played only 23 minutes, became the fourth-youngest NBA player to reach 5,000 points.

Only LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony were younger.

Tim Hardaway Jr. added 20 points as the Mavericks won for the ninth time in their past 12 games. Josh Richardson contributed 18 points for Dallas.

The Cavaliers have lost nine straight games and will host the Mavericks on Sunday in the second of two games between the teams this season.
