Grizz look exhausted and most of our shots are coming up short, but props to the Mavs defense. They've been playing well tonight. Mavs very much earning this win tonight after some shaky offense.

What a waste of a brilliant pass by Doncic

Nice try. Mavs 5 down at half and up 1 when Luka subbed out. Came back when Mavs were up 6 and 2min left in the 3rd. He alone scored 6 points within this 2min and Mavs up 14.

Gotta hand it to Jason Kidd. The man built a solid defense with a center rotation of KP and Powell. Team is really connected, not sure how they’ve fared in other games but points in the paint have come at a premium tonight for the Grizz.

Mavs have a top-5 defense for several weeks now.

It’s interesting- if Dallas can play good without Luka it’s scary how good they can be when he comes back in and sustains.


They are almost two different teams with different styles when Brunson plays and Luka sits.

Plus their defense isn’t bad.

Luka and Hardaway are the streakiest guys in the league if they ever both get hot it’s kinda over

Nobody cares about rockets vs kings, but Bagley is clearly outplaying Wood

Holy **** the Mavs cannot shoot. MEM could have won this game if they simply doubled Luka and dared the rest of the team to beat them from the outside

I'm not trying to slight Memphis whatsoever. I have no dog in this fight and was merely posting stats.

Brunson balling and Luka balling.

When they alternate cutting up the defense and then the Dallas defense plays like this.... whoa.

The Dallas bench defensively outplayed Griz by far

What did he say?


Mike Breen was talking about how Steph has improved on defense and Jvg said ppl were overstating improvements. How he freelances a lot, is aggressive in passing lanes but doesn't take tough assignments. He plays well in the scheme but they have terrific defenders around him. He also clowned some media ppl who were apparently saying Steph deserved all d and Breen was like but I didn't say that lol

JVG is a moron. Outside of him not taking on the best attacking perimeter player, all of what he said is relative to the previous season. Anyone who doesn't think he isn't playing elite defense doesn't know what he's talking about. All of what he said are things you can copy paste from previous seasons, not this one.

Mavs ended the Bulls streak at 9 and the Grizz at 11.
