The Clippers aren’t going anywhere. I hate the make up of their team. Pairing George with Leonard was incredibly shortsighted and I doubt Leonard resigns there.

The usual. Luka on the bench, Mavs collaps. No 2ndary playmaker.

Rick Carlisle is such a f*cking idiot. It’s like he learned nothing keeping Porzingis and Doncic out in the OKC game last week, yet we are supposed to be surprised when the lead shrinks back down to nothing while they’re out in this game

I think Iwundu has been decent in his limited minutes, but I’d rather see Green get those minutes any day of the week.

Beautiful game by Luka. Showed some midrange, posted up, hit some 3s and defended really well.

That said every time he sits the Mavs seem to be in trouble if Brunson is playing like ass.

Now that's a great way to finish a game! I wish RC put Doncic on the bench at the end of the 3rd in the last game. He would probably have played better in the clutch.

Great floater at the end. :)

Playoff Doncic tonight. They will be in a great spot if they can win both games against the Blazers but one W is a must if they want to contend for that 6th spot.

The +/- difference between Luka and Brunson is insane. Specially because JB was suppose to be the guy who leads the bench. He is actually much better when he plays WITH Luka on the floor. If Mavs could get someone like Rubio to trully lead the bench, that would be such a great opportunity to propel this team in the playoffs. Mavs had 14 TOTAL assists and 9 of them came from Doncic. I still remember JJBarea would come in to the game, play 9 or 10 minutes and have like 6 or 7 assists and you wouldn't even know about.

Luka was showing Leonard that he needs to sign in Dallas this upcoming offseason.

We shall see what happens this offseason. I'd love for us to pursue Kawhi. I expect Steve Ballmer to do what it takes to keep Kawhi happy.

I don't take the Clippers very seriously as a true championship contender but we'll see this postseason.

I think the odds are extremely unlikely he ever leaves LA, but yeah, another quick exit might have him at least seeing what other teams have to offer. Playing alongside Luka on a no-state tax team should be an easy sell for Donnie to present to any pending FAs. He’s out of excuses as a GM

The one where Luka kept dribbling around the CLippers and it looked like the Mavs just stood around, until he just went back to the 3pt line and tried another stepback 3... I just don't get it. I'm pretty sure there should have been some better opportunities in that possession.


I can’t tell if Luka has bad shot selection or if he has to take dumb shots because his teammates don’t know how to move without the ball. Maybe it’s a mixture of the two.


Yeah, a little bit of both. He had a really great game for sure, so you can't complain, but near the end, he dribbled the ball for 15 seconds, never getting past the 3pt line, never trying to do anything, and then just took a stepback 3 from 30 feet. What was that?

EDIT:I see a 3pt attempt at nearly 4min in the play by play and I thought it happened later in the game. The game was still within reach.
