I wonder will Mavs will play starters & try to win this game or just give the rest to them and try to tank?

Will Luka play or get the rest?

A Luka triple double along with a KP 30 piece would be the perfect motivation boost going into the playoffs…. And a win of course.

This should be a fun one

Assuming you would hope for a win and also have the Blazers to win so that we can get Nuggets round 1. Ideally, the Mavericks just play lights out from the start and can rest everyone in the 2nd half

I think they will try this. Especially If they see Clippers winning and Nuggets losing they may try to win all cost.

Or they will just give starters the rest they needed.

resting starters would pay dividens and the other half of that thought process is just how long of a rest is counter productive because the play in process will take some time to get completed and that may be counterproductive to our being ready. I am for treating this game seriously as the last dress rehearsal and getting guys to work on tying things that we can experiment with.

8 Warriors, 9 Grizzlies, and 10 Purs are now set. Tonight we get to see how the other chips fall.

This is an embarrassing start. Are they tanking for 6?

Look at Doncic's body language, he's just coasting up and down lol. Hasn't attempted a single run to the rim yet. This could be a painful game to watch.

If you want Denver it might be time to change over to the OKC/LAC and watch the tankathon

Looks like the Lakers are playing for nothing since Portland is kicking Denver’s butt.

At least POR is a good team, why is MIN , a lottery team, kicking the MAV's butt ?

Looks like the Lakers are going to beat New Orleans.

If the Clippers win; then we get Denver. If the Clippers lose, the we get the Clippers.
