Isn't KP supposed to be a good to great defender? How come I can't see it most of the time? Sometimes, I even forget he's there.

Started off pretty well and then got abused by Brook Lopez.

It is glaringly obvious that you can't play a decent game with only 2 serviceable bigs.

Every team can learn from Milwaukee. The teams chemistry sets the bar with Toronto being a close second. They play offense and defense.

Even if they choke like so many times before, it was a really fun game. But let's go Mavs!!! Show that you can finish games!

Getting our butts kicked by Lopez. Very sad.

Team showed a lot of heart tonight. Too bad Trey Burke is ass in the bubble though since the first game

Good to see Luka match two clutch free throws.

Kleber was too open on that three.

Love to watch Luka pass. This team is going to be great in a couple years.

What a showing. Luka was nothing short of spectacular tonight. I’m at a loss for words

Even though this game doesn't mean anything, it is nice to see the Mavs beat Milwaukee in overtime.
1) Coming back from 119-112 to time in regulation.
2) Luka hits two big free throws with 21 seconds left in regulation.
3) A lot of big threes in overtime.
4) Luka was very aggressive in overtime. Driving the lane and passing to the open player in overtime.

Great win!

Luka was great. Pinpoint passing. Low turnovers. Knocking down fts. Showing some midrange.

Every aspect of his game blended beautifully tonight.

Luka had by far his best game in a Mavs uniform. 19:2 AST/TO, Clutch, really murdered the #1 defense in the NBA. Shout out to DFS, monster game.

If we didn't blow the first two bubble games, we would be 1/2 game behind Hou, OKC, and Utah.

First game i didn't catch since the restart - couldn't stay up all night this time. But from what i can see, i missed the wrong game.

Swap THJ with Duncan Robinson, trade Delon + Seth for Aaron Gordon. That team would be unguardable. The spacing. Woof!

C- Porzingis
PF- Gordon
SF- Finney Smith
SG- Robinson
PG- Doncic

Return to Dallas Mavericks
