This just shows how pathetic this team is or what it would look like without Luka.... We would be the worst team in the league for sure

Wow, Luka has been terrible so far. He's been a mess offensively but his defense has been as bad or even worse.

Luka is on pace to have the worst game is his career. Just when you think he has everything going for him.

I guess KP being angry in his last game worked for him, but it would be nice to have the two best players performing well at the same time.

Good thing the Mavs are playing a bad team.

Glad KP is stepping up like a true 2nd option should when the star is having an off night.

Hopefully Luka can find his groove in the 4th though

I’ve been saying this the entire season. I don’t know about the worst team, but the Mavs would definitely be a lottery team without Luka. I’m positive of that.

Pretty much everyone is playing well other than Luka and Richardson. It's maybe not the time to insult the supporting cast when they are carrying the team right now.

Are we really sure about that? It doesn’t exactly take an all star squad to beat the Timberwolves. Luka had an off night, but that isn’t a testimony to great Minnesota defense by any means.

The problem with the Mavs is they have a clear #1 and #2 option but no clear #3.

All serious contenders should have 3 players capable of taking over

Doncic gave his powers to KP and Powell tonight. What a game from those two. Amazing.

Now is not the time for people to be propping up the supporting cast when they’re playing against Minnesota. You are right. I have no idea how Minnesota can be this bad when they’ve been gifted lottery picks over the years. Expel both Minnesota and Sacramento from the league.

Luka should not be in the game up 24 against the worst team in the league

Also how many technical fouls does Luka have now? He better be careful otherwise he’s going to get suspended

Why in the hell is Luka picking up technicals when they’re up by 21 points?

The Mavs made that game harder than it should have been, but a win is a win.

The expectations some of you are setting for this team are hilarious.

They make a trade things change, but as constructed they are right where they should be.

I wasn't propping them up, you were putting them down in a game where they showed up, even if against a bad team.
