Have no idea how Zion is out and not anyone else. Of course Lonzo and Bledsoe are both out because of injuries out of the blue, Bledsoe being eye irritation? This team is so strange

Hornets-Mavs should have been cancelled too. Mavs missing five of their top-10 guys due to covid rules, Hornets none

That´s not how it works. 76ers had to play with even less guys.

Omfg
Mavericks look so amazing with Porzingis
All that space is just crazy...Doncic will destroy every team

The Mavs are scary

Game changer. Even without some of the better shooters like Richardson or Maxi the spacing is way better. A 7ft2 guy that can shoot from 30+ ft makes it a lot easier for the rest of the team.

Luka is slowly turning into a really good defender. Already looked good in the bubble but right now he is the best defender on the floor.

It looks like Doncic is playing against 15 year old kids.

Doncic is a singular walking offense by himself. So impressed every time I watch, no matter how times I watch.

The pieces in Dallas just seem to fit, add Finney-Smith, Kleber and Richardson for Green, Iwundu and Boban and this team is one of the best in the league

Mavs made the right adjustments and surrounded him with good defenders. Might not lead to the best O-rating in history but it leads to more wins.
