Everything Boban makes on offense he gives back and more on defense... What's the point?

Uhmmm this is not the same Luka we saw in the bubble. He was cooking PG and Kawhi but now has problems getting around Jokic. At this rate he'll need 2 months to get back to his usual self.

But just in general, games like today we see how important Curry was for this team and people jumped on me when i said Mavs will miss him a lot.

This team needs to stop chunking bricks from the three point line.

Luka is still fat. His cheeks look healthy ;-)

Luka can't get in the lane. I can't tell if it is the defense, a bad ankle or just a bad game. Take that away and the Mavs don't have a good offense.

4/8 FT, 1/5 3p, 5TOs. It's deja vu all over again. I could at least tell myself that Luka was taking better care of the ball and was better on FTs...

It's incredible that the team is still in this game... I guess? Hard to know considering that I see nothing showing me that they can take over.

At what point do we consider that Curry was better than Richardson? His defense is good, sometimes, but his offense is bad way too often.

Great passing by Luka in this quarter. Could have had many more.

The team is waking up!

The problem with Luka being so out of shape is he can only play aggressive in spurts. He is not able to play like this the whole game so he is playing too passively half of the time. When he is on, he is still great but that is not enough. Need to stay aggressive the whole game, not just 15 min. This team cant win consistently enough if Luka is not 100%.

There is really no one on the Mavs coaching squad who could tell them to have ONE guy close to Jokic entire game? How many open shots has Jokic have so far? Incredible...

That was so incredibly stupid by DFS!!! WTF was that foul?

EDIT : I can't believe the Mavs are leading... This has been such an ugly game, with so many mistakes.

I love the heart our role players are playing with tonight. OT game gut we appear to be closing the game out. Great job!!!

Great show of heart in the 4th and OT. Great win.

Luka never ceases to amaze me. What a performance by him and Maxi

As good as Luka was in the 2nd half and OT, Maxi was also spectacular. He deserves all the praise.

He must have stayed at home. I don’t remember seeing him at all.

It’s still early with no preseason. He finished strong though.

If KP doesn’t get hurt Mavs win that series.

Lukas has looked pretty good the last 2 games.

Denver ran a zone that did confuse them. They figured it out though in the end and got the win.

You must be watching an entirely different game. Also people usually get tired at the end of the game not the beginning.

Easier said than done. Jokic is really good!
