Luka is amazing. Based on the season though, I have my doubts about closing this game.

Curry and Burke have been huge today.

The Luka, THJ, DFS, Maxi, KP lineup is ass.

KP needs to be more assertive on offense to get his points. Paid like a max player, gotta score like a max player.

In the first few games against the Clippers they didnt have a chance of winning a game but with every game they are closer. I predicted Clippers in 5 but I believe it will go 6 or maybe even 7 games if Luka doesnt run out of gas. Other players should be fresh enough because Doncic basically does everything for everyone on offense.




Told you Dallas was winning this game 8-) And they will have a fresh Luka for game 3...

My big worry is KP’s knee.

Huge win. Curry and Burke played amazing in the 2nd half with Luka in foul trouble.

Next game is huge.

I don't understand how Burke keeps getting let go. He has positive impact any time he's been given consistent mins since he landed with the Knicks.

If the refs didnt screw up game 1, we would have been up 2-0 by now.

PS: Paul George looked like an overpaid scrub today.

We had too many guards coming into the season. We are lucky the 76ers released him.

Straight trash for the first 8 minutes or so - was almost having a meltdown watching him play those minutes.

But he did turn it around after that and had 8-10 great minutes.

They need to feed him the ball more. When Luka is out of the game (and sometimes when he’s in the game) the need to feed KP the way Dirk used to get fed. Especially against a team like the Clippers, they have no one that can guard him.

That trade just keeps getting worse and worse for the Knicks.

Kawhi is a stud on offense too. Everyone expects him to get his. The problem is Luka is eating those great wing defenders up. And based on the first two games I believe the Mavs are absolutely good enough to challenge the Clippers in this series.
