  1. He seems excited! He says that he's super excited to be a Maverick and he's glad we scooped him up. So I'm glad he's a Maverick! I think he has a lot of potential.
  2. Deandre Ayton and Jalen Brunson are both free agents. New York has just cleared around 30 million in cap space. I don't know why all the talk has been that the Knicks are pursuing Brunson. If I was the Knicks I'd have just as much interest(if not more) in Deandre Ayton. Things are about to get interesting! I guess we'll know more on Thursday!
  3. I think there is huge potential in Jaden Hardy. I don't care what his season percentages were in the G league, this guy can definitely shoot. For a guy coming straight out of high school during the pandemic to playing in the g league I think he has showed he's an NBA player. The fact that so many GMs let him slide shows you just how much the league is focused on analytics these days. Hardy can definitely shoot and seems to have a solid handle that allows him to go left or right. His catch and shoot numbers are crazy good. 54% on unguarded catch and shoot opportunities. With the spacing that the Mavericks play with, its really going to give him an opportunity to succeed. Over his last 5 games Hardy definitely experienced a confidence boost in his 3 point shooting. 38% from 3 on 11 threes per game. Yikes! He has all the tools to be effective at the next level at the guard position, 6'4 with a 6'9 wingspan is solid.
  4. Luka Doncic was dominant. Spencer Dinwiddie showed up and Jalen Brunson did his thing as well. National media has been disrespecting the Mavericks all season long. At this point it is absolutely undeniable that Luka Doncic is the best player in the playoffs. He is averaging the most points, the most rebounds, the most assists and the 2nd most steals. Its mind boggling. If Jalen Brunson and Spencer Dinwiddie find a way to show up next series. Mavs might win in 5 or 6. People are trashing the Suns right now because they looked so bad against the Mavericks in game 7. They keep talking like the Suns had a bad game 7. Like the Suns just came out and didn't realize they were playing a game 7. That's the story or the narrative being pushed right now. But the reality of the situation is that the Mavs are a top 5 defense, PERIOD. The best team in the league that went to the finals the previous year didn't just lose their talent like some would have you believe. They were playing a really good defensive team that had an unstoppable offensive talent. The Mavericks gameplan in game 6 just carried over into game 7. Jason Kidd said we are not going to let Booker get off anymore. Booker for all of his talent and skill does not YET(not that he won't ever get there) have elite playmaking skills. He also does not have elite length. So traps on the pick and roll, affect him much more than a player like Luka. Who is an elite playmaker, I think he's probably the best one but easily top 3. Not to mention he is taller, bigger and longer than Book. In game 6 Dallas realized we need to stop hunting for threes and get the ball to touch the paint first. From there everything else just opened up. The suns have nobody that could guard Luka. When he got in pick and roll he was hunting for the best mismatch. Even when Deandre Ayton was guarding him in the paint, he found a way to score. If you decide to double him he almost always finds the open guy or gets the hockey assist he's just such a good playmaker and ball handler its really unfair. I know Reggie Bullock did an amazing job of pressuring Chris Paul up the court but let's not forget about Frank Ntilikina, whose defensive stats against CP3 and Devin booker was amazing as well. And let's not forget that Maxi Kleber, Reggie Bullock and Dorian Finney Smith had quiet games offensively. Any one of them are more than capable of dropping 15 points on any given night.
  5. As much as I enjoy the Mavs, I have to admit that Utah can only blame themselves for this one. The Jazz didn't execute down the stretch. Mike Conley travels and then Bojan Bogdanović misses the three. Bogdanović had a great look wide open. Spencer Dinwiddie definitely disrupted his rhythm but after the shot fake Dinwiddie goes into the stands. Bogdanović has to hit that shot. Mavericks were definitely the better team with the biggest star but as a team, the Mavs are breathing a sigh of relief. Its not like they shut Utah down. Jason Kidd, Luka Doncic and the rest of the squad still have a lot to prove. They need to prove that they can convincingly close out a series like a championship team. But they're in luck, as they have to face the best team in the NBA next round. This Phoenix series gives the Mavs the perfect chance to come together as a team and finally make their mark. The national media just doesn't respect them yet. I hope they rise to the challenge.
  6. Considering the latest news I have to go with the Dallas Mavericks knocking out the Jazz on the road in Utah. Based on recent news the stars just seemed to be aligned in Mavericks in favor. Donovan Mitchell's MRI came back negative meaning they didn't see a tear or any type of serious injury but he definitely was gimpy at the end of game 5 that can't make you feel great as a Utah fan to see your star player limp off the floor at the end of the game. Rudy Gobert stung by a bee on an off day. The left side of his face is swollen(he posted on social media to show everyone). Now I admit this does sound like some really minor news but as a fan of a team I think its not ideal to have your defensive anchor and perennial defensive player of the year candidate to be encumbered in any way when playing in the playoffs. Let alone an elimination game. The rampant speculation about Quinn Snyder. Now I know its just been talk but as they say, where there's smoke, there's fire. This team just hasn't looked sharp in the playoffs this year. I'm not saying its Snyder's fault but it does seem like there is an awful lot of smoke hovering around the Jazz organization this year. Also as an organization, it doesn't look good when your current coach is constantly involved in rumors about a potential move to LA after the season. And last but not least they are playing a Mavericks team that has something to prove. Jalen Brunson is playing for a new contract, he wants to prove that he is worthy of a 20 million plus contract. And Luka knows he needs to finally get out of the first round. Trae Young got to the Eastern Conference finals last year. This year Trae led the league in total points and total assists. Also this year, there is no Lebron, no Kawhi, no Kevin Durant, the road to the NBA finals is wide open and you can make a legitimate argument that the Mavs can beat any team in the west in a 7 game series. The time is now to make his mark. He knows this and I expect him to play accordingly. So all of these factors combined, just make it feel right to me. Mavs are just playing for more, the Jazz seemed to be in a state of flux. Anything short of a championship this year and I think the Jazz are blowing it up. And nobody is predicting a Jazz championship this year. But they are playing at home so they definitely have a chance to win tonight. It's going to be fun!
  7. I imagine that for Jazz fans this was a tough game to watch but as a Mavericks fan I love seeing my team get a strong win. Even though the Mavericks went up by as many as 30 points this game. I wouldn't call this one a dominant win. The Utah Jazz got plenty of great looks on offense. If they knock down some more open shots, the Mavs wouldn't have been able to dominate the pace like they did. I would think that a team like the Warriors, that have 3 elite shooters in Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole would make them pay a lot more than the Jazz did. All that being said though, I'm very satisfied with the energy that Dallas brought to the game today. I'm glad they'll get a couple days rest because they really played hard. I was disappointed to see Donovan Mitchell get injured at the end. He seemed to indicate he'll be getting an MRI sometime today. I hope its nothing serious.
