Doncic ejected in Mavericks' 124-97 victory over Cavaliers

CLEVELAND (AP) Luka Doncic's below-the-belt swipe to Collin Sexton earned him an ejection. It didn't slow down the Dallas Mavericks.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 25 points and Josh Richardson had 20, allowing playoff-bound Dallas to overcome the loss of Doncic early in the third quarter and roll to a 124-97 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night.

Doncic received a flagrant-two foul - an automatic ejection - just 1:55 into the second half for hitting Sexton with "an aggressive strike to the groin area," according to lead official David Guthrie. It occurred while jostling for position under the Cleveland basket.
