Hmm... Are Mavs really playing better without KP now? Defense looks MUCH better without him. We'll see how it goes rest of the game.

Luka scored or assisted on 11 out of 14 FG's made in the 1st Q. Holy ****

Luka's FTs are killing me man. So many missed opportunities.

Why do they let Richardson handle the ball? I don't get it. He has tunnel vision and isn't a good scorer.

Luka can't hit FTs once again and going cold to finish the 2nd.

The Mavs collapsing after having the Wizards on the ropes. The "defense" is inexistent.

Sometimes i feel like Jrich is actually trying to lose games. Such a poor player.

Wiz have all the momentum going into half

Need to come out and get this lead back up to 12-14 points and tire them out on this B2B.

Luka needs to get with Dirk and his shooting coach when it comes to free throws. It makes absolutely zero sense that a play who is as fundamentally sound as he has misses so many freebies.

Jrich has absolutely no idea what to do with the ball once he gets it. And defensive effort from the 1st Q is completely gone from everyone. They're just letting Wizards do whatever they want.

The Mavs can't get any easy shots anymore while the Wizards can, that's the difference.

The Wizards found a way to contain Luka in the past 10-11 minutes, while the Mavs didn't find a way to contain Westbrook. 2pts on 2 shots for Luka in 7 minutes in the 3rd... Finished last 4 minutes of the 2nd quarter 0/3 and 2/4 from the FT. That;s 4pts in 11 minutes after scoring 18 in 15 minutes.

As a Wizards fan, I'm shocked.

The team is finally legit.
I think they should Trade Beal

They had their chance to put the Wiz away early and now pissing all over themselves with terrible TOs.

Luka will probably sign with the Mavs because they can offer him five years and more money. After that, he’s gone if they can’t get him any help. He has no incentive to stick around if he wants to win. The roster is just bad. There’s not another player on this team that is consistent. Wildly uneven performances from the starters to the bench.

Lol. That last FT by Luka, it's almost as if he was trying to miss it... It can barely be called an attempt. There's something seriously wrong with his mindset when it comes to free throws.

The Mavs have been pathetic for a quarter and half now.

The most frustrating thing is Russ probably won't be as efficient this season anymore like he is tonight. It's crazy how Mavs just stopped playing defense and also are having hard time getting rebounds.

Sure, Maxi is good on defense. But if he’s only going to be a spot up shooter who attempts five or six shots a game then he must go. Most teams realize he’s not a threat unless he manages to get wide open.

The Mavs are at least showing some heart. It's a shame it has to come down to those last few minutes. Those missed FTs could hurt.

WTF Luka went way too fast on that ORBD, he had more time or could have advanced. Some bad luck on the play too.

And then previously WCS passing the ball instead of trying to dunk it...

Oh and THJ clearly not taking enough shots.

DFS balls are made of steel, Mavs got lucky on that Beal miss.

Insane numbers for Luka 31/12/20 and they still barely won. Luckily DFS has insanely improved his game while Jrich and KP just keep going backwards. Much needed win regardless.

DFS hits the clutch winner!!!!

Big games for DFS and Kleber supporting Luka.
