This will be the only win for the Mavs. Kawhi is gonna get into them next game and PG13 isn’t gonna shoot like that again. Luck Fuka! :nod:

I didn't expect Dallas to win a game due to the stiff role players they have but they would possibly be up 2-0 had KP not been ejected game one.

Duncan Robinson is 4-4 from 3 with two minutes left in the first half. The kid is automatic.

Millard dislocates a finger on his non shooting hand. Lakers won in a blowout.

Marvin Williams and James Ennis banging and going at it. They both needed to be separated.

With the ref between them and Coaches grabbing both players, Marvin had James jersey in his hands, and James swung a forearm (w/ closed fist) to get Marvin off his jersey.

I really need Trae and Cam to come back with a vengeance next season, cause Luka has been brilliant.

Twitter’s being annoying again. Every time Luka has a great game, Trae is always brought up. I can’t enjoy Luka without these dorks ruining it.

I hope Trae is fired up because I’m sick of it.

Trae Young is always mentioned and the Sacramento Kings. It's very annoying.

The Lakers and Clippers have voted to boycott the remainder of the 2019-20 season, according to Shams Charania, though every other team voted to continue playing.

After their vote, LeBron James walked out of the meeting and the rest of L.A.'s players, from both teams, followed him out the door. It's unclear how this vote was intended to play out. Each team could make their own decision, it could be symbolic, it could be a unified 'majority rules' situation, or something else entirely. Udonis Haslem reportedly addressed the rest of the room and "essentially [asked] everyone in room ... without Lakers and Clippers, how will the season continue?" LeBron explicitly said he wanted team owners to be more engaged and impactful, and the NBA has called an emergency Board of Governors meeting for Thursday morning. Perhaps they'll agree on measures that compel the Lakers and Clippers to continue playing.

I only see two possible solutions: the NBA comes down with the hammer hard and essentially forces the Lakers and Clippers to play under threat of voiding all their contracts, or the NBA suspends the season again in support of the players and effectively kills the season.

Adam Silver is a softie but I think the owners force his hand here. I would imagine the existing TV deal is going to be to some extent nullified if the season ends early, meaning the owners are going to absolutely going to scrap the CBA. They might push to scrape it anyways.

I think this has long term ramifications on the league regardless of how it resolves. Personally I foresee a lockout, a significantly smaller next TV deal, AND player % of revenue getting majorly slashed. I wouldn't be surprised if suddenly $22M becomes a true max deal again and quality starters were earning $5-7M.

I absolutely love Jimmy Butler...Chicago made a mistake trading him away a couple of seasons ago...

Every second of Dort I watch the more I want to draft Okoro who I don’t expect to be nearly as much of an offensive liability.
