Townsend is calling the Lakers-Mavericks scrimmage on NBA TV a black-out in the DFW area. But he didn't sound that certain.

If it doesn't work, you can still stream it on Mavs.com

Feels almost like the start of a new season.
I think predictions are close to useless at this point. Would be crazy if Luka almost made a 2nd to 3rd year jump and KP was able to start fresh. Hopefully THJ and Seth can stay hot from 3.
The small number of games will probably lead to some weird outcomes in the bubble but, hey, at least the NBA is back.

And the third game will be with Mark and the gang on FSSW.

Feels like it's been a decade since I've watched basketball.

Carlisle said nobody will be playing normal minutes during the scrimmages, so I’m sure we will be getting more MKG than anyone cares to see. Doesn’t matter, I’m just happy to see our boys again

Actually, I think Carlisle said MKG wouldn't be playing in this game if I recall (someone correct me if I'm wrong). I suspect we will get a lot of Barea though - which I rather enjoy.

Everyone knows Barea is the Lebron-stopper.

Whoever helped Deandre with his free throws while he was here is definitely sleeping on the job with Luka. Team looks great though otherwise

Very exciting to watch after not having basketball for so long. The NBA has done a fantastic job pitting this together and everything looks professional.

High energy game. Go Mavs!

That was a fun game, we are some perimeter defense and overall growth of luka and kp to being a contender

Seth Curry is on fire. Boban is playing pretty well. A lot of good signs shown in the game.

An insightful look at the Mavericks offense.

Does anyone have any highlights of Dončić's and Porzingis' defense from the scrimmage? Thank you in advance!

KP played pretty bad, even though he hit some shots. McGee torched him on defense, not worth watching in my opinion. Doncic was good though.

I don't know what Boban's been doing but he looks incredible.He's moving with more quickness than I've ever seen.If he continues to play like this ths Mavs will be very scary in the playoffs.

Barea just looks like he forgot how to run an offense. The starters look good, but the non-Luca minutes need some serious help.

Well, Delon has been a bust. Trey Burke is going to hopefully take all his minutes.
