Man, I didn't want to watch the game and I didn't and we won. I'm so happy. The emotions of this game, couldn't even sleep well for the past two days. Kawhi Leonard Ladies and Gentleman.

I appreciate the 45 from Kawhi but his defense on Luka is also game/ series changing.

Luka is a different player when Kawhi is guarding him. His BS herky jerky nonsense does not work on Kawhi. He's not stronger than him, so he can't bully him into his little fade aways and leaners.

Kawhi really, IN MY OPINION, smacked him on both ends of the floor tonight.
He needs one more game like this for us to go to Utah.

Yep, we just need Kawhi to put the clamps on him all day Sunday. And PG needs to pull his head out of his ass and give that man some help so he's not all alone.

PG, Batum, Reggie post Q1, MM, anyone else makes a few shots and games already over.

The 4th Qtr D has been good the last 4 games. The 2nd qtr D has been pretty good also. Our problem has been not knocking down shots. We barely broke 100 pts again.

Game 7 all or nothing and home team yet to win and a afternoon game. That’s stacked curses all over it but we have to find a way.

We need to figure a counter for the Boban minutes and we can’t just let guys get minutes not hitting shots. That final lineup was dependent on Kawhi so much.

Reggie helped but we can’t depend on another game like that so soon

Lol. I was in the same boat. I just didn't have the nerves to watch this. With 3 plus minutes to go I peeped at the score and we're up 3. Then we're up 7. Then I dared to turn the game on.
And then it was all good!

i just don't get van gundy when he says the clippers r the most talented team. they just needed reggie jackson to literally save their season. No Ibaka, Mook really isn't great, and Rondo was averaging like 5 pts a game before he came from Atlanta. I feel Utah is way more talented. Not too be a downer though. great game to watch. Guys can't play scared on Sunday

What a great performance by kawhi- on both sides of the ball. If only they could make a few 3 pointers here and there- what an atrocious shooting night. I think they may be fatigued by playing such focused and intense defense.

On a different topic- I wonder why Carlisle isn’t playing Powell more- he is very athletic and would seem to benefit from all of the attention Doncic is getting. Hopefully he doesn’t figure that out!

The short turnaround favors us. The Mavs players have not had to experience that in a high pressure situation. The vets on the Clips will be ready. I expect to see some Boogie in Game 7.

That was a Jordanesque display by Kawhi especially all those clutch shots at the end while going 1v1. Will go down in the history books as one of the greatest performances of all time in elimination games.

Soooooooo, this Kawhi guy is pretty decent eh? Seriously though, this is the way you bounce back after playing like absolute garbage in game 5!

The game threads suck. I don’t read them. Why bother, the histrionic one liners about anybody and everybody. How about some rational talk of what worked and what didn’t . I dont post during game, there is no point. Nor do I read the ridiculous emotionalism.. I wait until game is over. Like now. Then I read the thread and shake my head.

Great win. That was the Kawhi we waited for. Kudos to Reggies play in first half.

Now lets win game 7... and stop all the “I hope we lose” crap!

There was that stretch late in the game where they were turning it over and just not in a good rhythm... the teams were basically trading misses. Why didn't they have Rondo in that during that stretch? I think he could've manufactured something and the game wouldn't been so close.

I feel like if they can just get past the Mavs, the team can play a little more freely. To me, Luka has probably been the best player in the entire playoffs. The way he single handedly controls a game is just so hard to stop. The Mavs rely heavily on him, but when he's able to do the things he does, any team would do the same.

Paul George had some clutch 4th Quarter shots.

I'm gonna give him credit for that. Big shots in big spots.

Terminator Kawhi activated the last 3 minutes. PG didnt shoot well overall but did much better in the 4th. Him stepping up will be key for game 7! Morris needs to be put on a short leash next game. I hope he proves me wrong when hes hot we are almost unbeatable.
