I consider Brunson third best on this team which isn’t saying much. Luka has less help than any star player in the league.

Melli played great defense and provided some much needed hustle and yet played only 6 mins. I would really like to know what Rick is thinking in these type of situations. We're probably going to hear "Yeah that one is on me", after the game again.

Doncic and Finney Smith are the only keepers on this team. Everyone else should go. Keep Kleber for the sake of continuity and being Luka's buddy if you must

And two games ago, I thought that putting JRich on the bench and starting THJ could be the solution... TO be fair, one game isn't enough. THJ is a really inconsistent guy. It's such a shame, he could be a keeper.

How many passes have Mavs fumbled today ffs....This game is still in reach but they are making so many dumb mistakes and continuously keep Lakers shooters wide open.

Those last two shots by Doncic were pretty bad, at least the 3 went in.

Nice ending to the game. Mavs played great while the Lakers completely collapsed. I loved the Doncic and Powell connection. It's going to be tough to get the 5th seed, but why not?

I don’t agree with running out the 24 second clock and shooting a 34 foot shot, but that Luka shot was great.

The Mavs came out a different team in the second half. Where did that defense come from?

Great adjustments by Luka and RC. Nice to get a win coming from behind.

Hmm, i'm asking myself if Powell was really bothered by the injury up until this point. Ever since he was inserted in to the starting lineup, he started playing really well. Offense and defense. It's kinda awesome to see another above the rim player for Luka. Will be interesting to watch when KP gets back.

He has looked hesitant, which isnt unusal after getting back from bigger injuries. Tonight I take my hat off, he played great and didnt look scared at all.

Im most worried about Luka ending up in LA some day. Thats after all where porn is mainly made...
