Porzingis contributed 23 points and seven rebounds and such was Dallas' dominance that their lead never once slipped, even though their best player Luka Doncic sat out most of the fourth quarter at Disney World.
In doing so, he became the third-youngest player in National Basketball Association history to record a triple-double in the postseason.
With the Mavs up by ten early in the fourth, Doncic picked up his fifth foul.
"We've got to measure a lot of things relative to how he's feeling, what the diagnostic test looks like and what our trainers feel", Carlisle said.
"Being on the bench, it's hard for me".

"I just wanted to get in", said Doncic, who was 4-of-14 from the field in the loss.
"That was a fast-paced game but for Kawhi, he can see the game even though it's fast and he's never in a rush and knows where to go", Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.
George finished 4 for 17 for 14 points. But instead of the Mavs wilting without Doncic, they started thriving behind Burke and Curry as the Dallas lead grew to 18 points.
The Clippers' primary defensive asset, Patrick Beverley, was limited to just 20 minutes in Game 1 and was absent on Wednesday due to a lingering calf problem that Rivers revealed could keep him out of Game 3 today.
Lou Williams came off the bench and provided a quick spark, scoring 10 points in the period as the Clippers cut it to 29-25 after one. "But there's going to be nights like this where I just can't make a shot, and I can't allow that to affect my game".
"We knew after the first game that we were right there and we could compete with probably one of the favorites to win it all", Porzingis said.
Kemba Walker scored 24 points and the Boston Celtics closed with a 10-0 run to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 102-94 on Friday night for a 3-0 lead in the first-round series.
