4th quarter D has been pretty great.

It’s a shame we didn’t get this version of Rondo here. He was a great addition for them

After 3 great quarters, Luka sucks in the 4th. Does he have 1pt on 0/6 and 1/2 FT? And two airballs in the same possession...

Stellar close to the game. KP and THJ were clutch

There was no flow to that quarter.

It never felt like there was a rhythm. Surprisingly the Mavs dealt well with it.

He had a couple of bad turnovers. But overall, I like how he has no problem just giving the ball up and making the right play.

I'm surprised they got the win. After 6 minutes, I thought they were giving the game away.

41mpg is just way too much for Doncic. They can't expect him to keep playing that, right?

Great win. Clearly the team can beat the Clippers. They can beat anyone, it's just a matter of them being able to play at their full potential for 4-7 games or not.

Again, **** Rajon Rondo, I can't stress this enough
Dirk, we need DFS thunderous dunk from the 1st Q.

Wow! Mavs were 17-36 from downtown 47.2%!

Clips only 11-40 from deep 27.5%

Doubt we can expect this to be the case for game 2. I think Luka will continue to serve the Clippers defense up tho.

Fantastic finish with everyone stepping up just when it mattered the most, even KP with some huge plays in the final 4 minutes.

Lue is a terrible coach. People have to know by now that doubling Luka doesn’t work. You’re much better off letting him go off and containing the supporting cast. If Lue continues to double him then the Clippers could lose this series.

Pretty much a perfect game from Luka until the 4th. He got visibly tired and couldnt score in the 4th but at least he didnt force it and played smart.
KP got it going a bit in the 4th and hit all his FTs. Hopefully that momentum carries over into game 2.
Brunson, THJ and DFS did their job and were clutch.

Overall a very good game for the Mavs and a great win. I think its a 55:45 series at this point. All the Mavs have to do is win all their home games and they win the series. Exciting stuff! ;-)

They started doubling Luka pretty much from the middle of the 3rd until the end… his teammates had to win that game and they stepped up. What a great start
