Yikes. Need to throw the kitchen sink at it for G6 when hopefully KP is playing. Knew we needed to split G5/6 anyway.

That 1st quarter really killed us. Can't have slow starts. Really need KP the next game.

we started out great during the first couple of minutes but a big part of it is Luka decided to complain after every play and not hussle on defense.. points of complaints was probably more than 20 during the 1st half

How do you maximize his value now that his durability is in question? It will take a healthy next season for management to be able to move him for max value. It's an issue management is probably content with for the time being but if KP doesn't stay healthy next season it will be a much bigger longterm issue.

Go Mavs!

His durability has always been in question but he's been dominant in the bubble so that's definitely the high end value compared to his poor early season play. Especially if he comes back game 6 and is productive

This is when we need Salah Mejri. Someone who can defend Luka if the other team tries to take Luka out.

Yeah, I miss Salah and what he brought to this team in a limited role.
There is room for both him a Boban next season imo.

Any word if the Mavs plan to play Game 6?

Heard Lebron and the Lakers (if not all) have already left the bubble. Wonder if Kawhi and the Clippers stepped out too.

How accurate is that?
From my understanding Lebron was mad because players on his team spoke up before he did. Lebron supposedly wants to play but some teammates don't? I'm confused..lol

"NBA players have decided to resume the playoffs, a source tells ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Thursday's three playoff games will be postponed and it's undetermined when the games will be rescheduled.
Wednesday the Milwaukee Bucks team lead a protest that resulted a postponement of all games that day."

Which means Mavs game will be postponed. I guess? Someone correct me if i am wrong. ( More time for KP and Luka to heal?)

Yes. Games today will be postponed. Luka and KP get a day or two more of healing time at the very least

I stand corrected. Players (and by that, I mean Lebron's posse) changed their minds and have decided to resume the season. Luka and KP should get a day or two of rest.

Salah would knock Morris on his ass until he got either two technicals or fouled out.
