    2. Doncic is suddenly dominating in front of the basket on the defensive end.
    Twolves let up in game one, and didn’t commit to defending Doncic and Irving (only brought the double teams when they reached the lane). They had great games and Dallas was better at rebounding, and executing their offense down the stretch. Key point in the game was at 11:00 left in the fourth Q, Minn led 89-84. Dallas went on a 13-0 run and Doncic had 9.

    Twolves shot 49 threes ( a lot for them) and focused on denying the three for Dallas (6-25). It was too “didactic” a strategy.

    Oh and Doncic is not hurt. At all. That is some serious BS Dallas is peddling.

    He hurt the knee in the Clippers series not sure the severity of the sprain went to the locker room got treatment and has been dealing with it for the majority of the playoffs. His pace is so slow I don't think it really looks like it bothers him...all reports are he gets treatment on it every day.

    Mavs played great I thought did what the Pacers should have done and stole gm 1 in front of a hostile crowd...Kyrie was very aggressive from the start and Lively played really well for them in spurts.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    If Kyrie and Luka want to win one on the sheer immensity of their combined talent, this would probably be the year to do it.

    Yes that and the midseason trade for PJ Washington and Gafford have really rounded the Mavs out...

    Last night Kyrie's handles were absolutely unreal especially in traffic.

    Hope Haliburton's hammy is okay. That would suck if he's out.

    Tough times for us Bucks fans:

    1. Could never root for the Celtics.
    2. Dislike the entire state of Indiana, particularly the Pacers.
    3. T Wolves fans are Viking fans.

    Which means we have to root for Jason Kidd and the idiot Irving.

    It's kind of shocking Minnesota left Rudy on an island against Luka. Dallas clearly wanted that matchup, switched them into it. Kind of reinforces my longstanding belief that center defense is overrated and perimeter defense is underrated.

    When in doubt root for the Eastern European. We are the scum of the world, which is exactly how we like it.

    To be fair, that shot is likely the most difficult to defend in the league. Luka is a freak.
