Denver is currently playing Memphis so it will be the second game of the back to back. Let's get the W and start our new streak. Go MAVS

Let’s see how the Mavs look healthy against an actual good team. It’s been a long time since both of things happened at the same time.

Jokic is questionable. He tweaked his ankle last night but I expect him to play. With Embiid out Jokic must play in hopes to win MVP.
Line has moved down and Denver is only favored by 1.5pts now.

Nice bounce back by the Mavs after a slow start. Hopefully back to back fatigue slows the Nuggets late.

I know he's shooting well from 3, but I dislike that Luka seems to be mostly a 3 point shooter right now. Maybe because it looks like he has trouble getting by anyone and he often settles for them.

10 3PA out of 20 FGA against SA
10 3PA out of 22 FGA against Orlando
10 3PA out of 21 FGA against Brooklyn
6 3PA out of 13 FGA against Philly

And now 6 3PA out of 10 FGA.

Refs are a total joke in this game, that call on KP just now was softer than a marshmallow. Rick should've challenged that and not let him get his 4th on such an obvious bad call.

Also I think I finally found worse commentators than the Mavs broadcast team. The Nuggets one sounds just as senile but also spends substantial time debating their favourite burger elements at Wendys.

Another big game for KP. We need to find a way to keep him on the court.

Today shows the worthlessness of the +/-. THJ is +22 with very little contribution.

Yeah he's falling in love with the three point shot at the moment. Maybe because he's shooting it so well.

I liked his shot selection before which was a good mix of threes, midrange and drives. Hope he gets back into it.

Denver is always a tough place to win. Great game for the Mavs.

Good win. KP the best player on the floor again.

I'm concerned about Luka. Great passing, I didn't see energy from him. 1/6 in the 2nd half, overall a really bad half.

I also don't understand why the Mavs barely seem to run the pick and roll. They let Luka alone at the top, often he can't get by his guy, so he takes a 3. This happened way too often in this game. Why don't they send the pick? It's really hard to watch him take 10 threes a game. The last one was an atrocious shot.

His FT shooting has also been really bad lately.

Very good win. Nice to see 3s falling like they were in the bubble and for the Mavs to beat an actual good team.

Everyone played great, hope they hang on to that momentum!

KP was on fire. Nice to see him put two great games in a row.

The Clippers will also be on a back to back. Good chance they don't play Kawhi.

Its ugly to watch when he's not feeling it. And today he wasn't feeling it; stemming from his frustration with the refs.
He needs to find a way to impact the game without messing up the rhythm of the rest of the team.

I agree that Luka didn't have one of his better games. But he still scored 21 points on 16 shots with 12 assists and 5 rebounds. For mere mortals that is All-Star level NBA performance. So he had a very positive effect, just not his normal god-mode.
