Wow that was a great quarter! Luka started bad, but made up for it!!!

And 3/3 from the FT line!!! Hasn't shot 100% since February 3rd! More than two months. You can do it! :)

Last 4 including this one.

The ones in which he's been -2 in a +5 win, -7 in a +13 win and +14 in a +22 win, plus this one.

8, 5, 4 and 4 TOs so far...


Maybe you should check his % too. Anyway he was named player of the week for 3 of those 4 games you're talking about. He's and will always be high TO player, like are more or less all high usage players.


He's been much better in the second half of the 3rd quarter.

Btw, when I say terrible I mean compared with his usual standard. I think some of those fouls have been bad TOs, not high usage TOs but sloppy passing or bad dribbling TOs. His FT shooting has been all over the place (9-19 in the last 3 games).

Brunson has been a bigger factor in those wins than Luka, which isn't bad news. Glad to see Brunson stepping up with quality minutes.

Every time Mavs hit a 3, Utah hits one right back. As long as Dallas doesn’t piss it away with Luka on the bench, they should be ok... a lot of game left though

BRUNSON! He's been unreal in the last 5 games. Way to step up.

I think Luka, J-Rich, Hardaway, DFS, and Melli should close this game

This might be DFS’s best game of his career so far

Can Luka just stop passing to Melli... It's enough.

You can tell he wants Melli to put the nail in the coffin. He’s ice cold though, time to sub in THJ for him

If someone still doesn't love Brunson than I don't know what.

Luka might have just put a nail in the coffin.

But at some point, you should be smart enough to see that he's indeed ice cold.

I think Luka is looking for Melli too much. In the first half, he also had a bad TO trying to pass to Melli who was covered. And he had another weird pass behind him where the defense collapsed on him and he threw it to Melli who was actually covered. Melli had to pass the ball cause he had no shot.

Big win against the team with the NBA’s best record.
