Somebody said his TOs are the reason for defeat. Do you know, how many points more is expected on average to be scored from Mavs, if Luka had 6 TO's less? Now do the math what happens, if he had his normal 28 points with 58% TS or knowing Clippers D. even less? You cannot beat Clippers, if all players except Luka made only 18 points and only 2 3s in entire second half. While 11 TOs look bad, they weren't decisive, because majority of them were in first Q, and Mavericks were leading by 14 in Q2. KP's ejection and inability from others to score was crucial on the other hand.
Again deflecting and making excuses. Nobody knows what would have happened if he didn't turn the ball over so much, maybe mavs win, maybe they get blown out. What we do know is, he had 11 TOs. Too many.
Numbers means nothing without context. Anybody, who has watched the game has seen that 2:18 and many TOs in first few minutes didn't meant much in this game. KP's ejection was crucial for the outcome. But you're, like I, entitled for your opinion of course. My prediction is, Luka will have less TOs and worse game tonight.
Luka has 5 TO’s within the first 2 minutes of the game. It was kind of funny but Luka having to exit the game to get his ankle re-taped actually helped the Mavs. It allowed Luka to settle down but it also seemed to throw the Clippers off a little. They were determined to stop Luka. Once he went out it was like the Clippers didn’t know how to defend the Mavs. That’s when the Mavs made their run to get back in the game. Then by the time Luka came back into the game he had settled down and pretty much did whatever he wanted. He still had 6 TO’s from that point on which is too much.
