Dallas Mavericks 38, Minnesota Timberwolves 33 (Q2 08:13)
What’s the buzz on Twitter?
The Wolves two best options to check Luka — McDaniels and Rivers — both with two fouls in the first quarter.
Anthony Edwards’ turn. – 8:35 PM
Anthony Edwards went from occasionally being problematic for the Wolves to consistently being a *problem* for opponents, like, real quick – 8:30 PM
Kemba Walker is again the first Mavs backcourt sub. That’ll change when Josh Green is healthy, but this is now four straight games with regular Kemba minutes. – 8:26 PM
Rudy Gobert with 8 points in the first 5 minutes, and all in diverse (for him) ways.
– Side PnR with Ant for a lob
– And 1 finish on a catch underneath the basket
– Eurostep finish after catching at the nail
– Tip dunk on a missed Ant finish – 8:20 PM
I’m not sure how much money Luka just made, but he went to three different Mavs equipment and training staffers on the court during warm-ups, appeared to offer a bet, and then drained his half-court shot, pumping his fists in celebration.
As always, he appears super uptight. – 7:53 PM
Mavs starters tonight: Luka, Dinwiddie, THJ, Bullock, and Wood. Rudy Gobert is available and starting for the Timberwolves after missing the last three games (L ankle sprain). Mavs at Timberwolves coming up in 30 mins on BSSW. – 7:40 PM
Mavs injury updates – Dorian Finney-Smith is out w/ an adductor strain. Tim Hardaway Jr returns from an illness that kept him out Monday night. Dwight Powell is back after missing the last two with a left thigh contusion and he’ll come off the bench. Mavs at T-Wolves, 7p on BSSW – 7:02 PM
Notes from Jason Kidd pregame:
— Christian Wood will still start despite Dwight Powell return from injury.
— Reggie Bullock and Tim Hardaway Jr. will get toughest defensive matchups with DFS out.
— After NBA fined him $25k, “I don’t plan on walking out on the court tonight.” – 6:44 PM
Jason Kidd says Dwight Powell will play tonight for Dallas, but come off the bench.
Powell missed Monday’s game against the Wolves.
Dorian Finney-Smith, who played on Monday against the Wolves, will be out. – 6:35 PM
If I were building a West All-Star team right now:
G – Luka
G – Steph
FC – Joker
FC – Davis
FC – Zion
G – Dame
G – Shai
FC – LeBron
FC – Lauri
FC – Sabonis
WC – Ja
WC – Booker
Really want to find a way to get Aaron Gordon in there, but the guards need spots. – 3:43 PM
today, including our Week 16 NFL Tiers with a shocking shakeup near the top & a ranking that has @Chris Broussard
simply beside himself.
Plus, we discuss if PHI can beat DAL without Jalen, if the Warriors are fixable & if Joe Burrow can win MVP. – 2:54 PM
