Let's hope they finish the game well this time.


It’s because you watch this team to know that there’s no such thing as a comfortable lead. I remember still being a little nervous when the Mavs led by 50 against the Clippers

The problem is that they can't sell low on him. He still has more potential than anything they can get for him. What could they get that would make them a contender?

I thought they overvalued him when the trade happened, but now they have to keep pushing and hope KP from the bubble comes back.


I still think the trade was a steal from the Knicks considering nothing of true value was actually given away other than a couple picks likely in the 20s, but for all of those front office guys to flat out say they’re not taking calls on KP is an injustice to Luka and the fans


The problem wasn't what they gave up, the problem was that it had to come with a max that he didn't deserve.

This has to be one of the most fun quarters of Mavericks basketball I’ve ever watched

I'm gonna assume Mavs win this one up 30

3-2 vs Den, LAC, & Portland. Team still needs some upgrades, but the sky isn't falling

That was an impressive quarter... I thought Luka was going for 50, I guess he won't.

Easy stretch coming up. It's time for the Mavs to go up the standings: Wolves-Pacers-Pels-Thunder-Celtics-Knicks-Wizards.

Luka could get MVP votes and would be a dark horse for the reward if the Mavs surge. Especially if he keeps on putting up these numbers.

Why did they even put Luka back in the game. He was just there doing nothing. It makes no sense.

We criticize Jrich a lot but he had a great game tonight again. And DFS with some much needed made 3s and energy plays.

I wanted to see Tyler Bey too. He was playing great in the G-League.

Richardson has been playing much better lately. It took him a while to get his game back after COVID.

Luka has made eight of nine three pointers. Amazing!

Even more amazing is that CJ and Lillard haven't made one. 0 for 12.

A very satisfying win.
