Lol... I mean what can you say. They go up by 10, you are certain the game is over and they go on to play the worst 2 minutes possible.

Remember when I said that Doncic was playing bad in the 4th in pretty much every game and that it can come back to hurt the team... well here we are. Astonishing for 3 quarters, but missing everything in the 4th (1/8) and scoring just 2pts in 10 minutes.

EDIT : At least Dallas won the game!!!

THJ for the rebound of a lifetime and two clutch free throws leaving 8.8 seconds to defend for the win up by 3

Say what you want about J Rich… but the free throw is always money.

Great win.

Finish this fight!!

Luka had at least 4 shots that lipped in and lipped out. Very close misses that have nothing to do with it being the 4th quarter. Did you see him pull up for that deep 3 in transition? That kid's confidence level is on infinity. He's not getting 4th quarter jitters.

I think the 4th quarter performances is a combination of fatigue and you just don't score 10 points every quarter.

This game man. What a rollercoaster.

That was an absolute must win. Can't waste a game where Luka played good and Kawhi played bad.

That was a roller coaster. That 4th quarter was just too much. Let's hope they close it next game!!!

Even if every team has won away, you don't want a game 7 in L.A.

Scary thing for the Clippers is the Mavs won when only 2 of their players were in double figures and Mavs shot a pedestrian 38.9% from 3.

What happens if the Mavs role players get hot from beyond the arc? It also seems like Carlisle finally figured out a way to slow down Kawhi (some).

I never said he has jitters. He's probably tired after having done so much. Still, you want to be able to win close games and you want your best player to be clutch.

I thought foul on Boban was a flop by Mann. That "continuation" call :lol: I don't think Luka was 6 inches away from even touching Kawhi. What a joke of a call.

Rest of the game seemed decent to me.

**** me. That was a nail-biter. Good win. Hopefully they shoot better at home this time.

I am a fare weather fan. I was convinced the Mavs would lose. Had the game on in the background half watching it, so I didn't get to involved and disappointed.

And they won.

It wasn't pretty or easy, but they toughed it out when they could have easily folded. Good character team.

This game was the series, for the Mavs. They lose this & they need a 2-0 shocking sweep (like we saw in game 1 & game 2), which wasn't likely.

Now they have a free crack at game 6. Doncic (when healthy) gets whatever he wants against the Clippers. If the Mavs shooters are hot, it could happen. If the Clippers shooters are not, it could happen.

If it goes to game 7, the Mavs go back to LA where they are 3-0 in this series. Not a bad spot to be in.

Thank God they won tonight!!!

Yeah the refs tried to steal it and failed so lets see how things go from here on out. The clips are now at win or go home so lets see how they handle it.

Nope, I just thought you saying "the kid doesn't have jitters" was an answer to what I wrote.

Anyway, it feels good that they won and I have to go to sleep. I have to be up at 6 and it's over 1 here. :)
