Hardaway Jr. hit several pull-up jumpers to break down the Washington defense and give the team a 41-26 lead.

With Jones Jr.’s great performance, Dallas entered the fourth quarter with a 104-83 lead and a 21-point lead.
Early in the fourth quarter, the bench lineup led by Kuzma and Gallinari once dominated, but Seth Curry threw cold water with a series of pull-up three-point shots and mid-range jumpers. Dallas then tried to close the game by putting Doncic in, but the atmosphere flowed strangely as Aboudiya succeeded in a three-point shot, which was his weakness. Doncic, who went to save the team, was blocked by the defense after committing a turnover.
However, Doncic was a player who knew how to play the game through passes and collaborated with Jones Jr. and Eliob Dunk. Eventually, Wes Unseld Jr., the coach of Washington who chose to give up the chase, threw a towel. Dallas then overpowered Washington 130-117.
