Yeah, the Blazers are winning some really tight games, sometimes because the other team is choking. Kind of a shame, because with Powell, it should be harder to get passed them. At this point, you wonder if the Mavs don't have a better chance to get ahead of the Lakers than the Blazers.

It would be weird if the Mavs still got the Clippers in the 1st round.

The team needs a win considering tomorrow is going to be tougher on the back to back.

The Blazers gave up GTJ, the jury is still out on that trade, Powell has too much overlap with Dame and CJ.
this game starts the "easy" schedule, let's hope for the best, KP/Turner is an interesting matchup.

Luka doubtful with a back issue and wouldn't be shocked if KP sits tomorrow.

With Luka not playing, it's another great chance for KP to rise up and show what he is worth.

SHould we be concerned about Luka's back? I mean, this is multiple games now.

And always back2back or some other interesting timing. We should be concerned about coach tactics, if anything.

Worst case scenario another Steve Nash resting his back on sideline on national TV.
I think it's load management, Luka played his best game on bum ankle, he can play through pain.

Mavs are a 1pt underdog since Luka won't play.

Brunson will but nobody takes any pressure off KP except for Luka.

Luka is probably out tomorrow aswell. These two games are going to be tough but obviously very important and very winnable.

Unless they decided to not play Luka and KP on back to backs, but they're not sitting them at the same time. Which is the thing to do.

Luka is injuried, there are no tactics in play. If he can play, he will, if he can't, he'll rest. But the way Rick sounded, it's doubtfull he'll play. I hope he does though.

No proper playmaker is really hurting Mavs right now. Brunson has to make that next step and stop trying to be SG in PG body.

Also, THJ is incredibly selfish. Had open guys on perimeter many times but often made a stupid forced play.

Indiana 17 assists, Mavs 8 at the half. Mavs top assists leaders are KP and Dwight Powell with 2. Ball movement is absolutely non existent. I don't know why people think they have a better ball movement when Luka is out.

KP looked a bit tired already at the half, but he was playing hard and really well. Someone else needs to step up or this game will be over really fast.

Also doesn't help that they are 19% from the 3pt line :-?

Tough shooting night.

Trey Burke has to be the most streaky player ever. He can just light it up or be a complete nothing on offense. Unfortunately, his defense is consistently bad.

I thought Josh Green looked good in his 4 minutes.

They are destroying us behind the arc, I hope we improve our shooting and ball movement in the 2nd half.
