DALLAS (AP) - Kristaps Porzingis is back for the Dallas Mavericks after missing 10 games with a sore right knee. The 7-foot-3 forward returned against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday. Porzingis thought he was ready almost a week ago in Sacramento. But the Latvian was a late scratch when the soreness flared up. Porzingis has paired with fellow European Luka Doncic to get the Mavericks back in playoff contention. Dallas has missed the postseason three straight years. It's the franchise's longest drought in 20 years. Porzingis is second on the team to Doncic in scoring and rebounding.
