The segment saw Phoenix Suns veteran Charles Barkley roast a Mavericks super-fan, who had earlier taken a dig at him for not winning any championships.
This was followed by 4x NBA champion Shaquille O Neal throwing some shots at Kristraps Porzingis, who lately had expressed his displeasure towards the Mavericks franchise.
Kawhi Leonard was the key force in Game 7, scoring 28-points, shooting a mind-boggling 66.7% from the field. The supporting cast led by Paul George also made their fruitful contributions late in the game. The Clippers were on the brink of elimination but were able to resurrect themselves.
The Mavericks only had Luka Doncic as their sole offensive tool, who even suffered from nerve damage in Games 4 and 5 but was nothing but extraordinary from the field.
