Tonight, the Mavs go back to .500... tonight, the Mavs end their fifteen game losing streak... tonight, the Mavs finally win on the road... tonight, the Mavs end their B2B spell... tonight, Luke gets his first career triple-double... tonight, Lil'Lard only scores 8 points... tonight, the Mavs win...!!!

Mavs - 110
POtterlandians - 103

Smith's status has been raised to doubtful, but at least that is progress from just being out.

Why does RC wait so long to put the starters back in especially Luka ?

Chucking too many threes. We really need DSJ to break defenses down and keep them honest. Not hitting anything from the outside right now.

Why do the Portland starters have the same amount of minutes as the Mavs starters? Is it because pretty much every nba team uses the same basic rotation schedule?

Portland must have 50+ points in the paint or something. They just post us up or drive every time and we don't have an answer. Plus we got annoying Wes today. Pointing towards a loss. Don't have high hopes for the second half tbh.

I think Doncic, Wes, Barnes, Kleber, DJ could work well against the length of the Blazers. Not that "I don't change my rotation ingame ever" Rick would try it though.

Ugh watched enough of this road trip to know where this is going. No drive in the team right now. Probably the worst Iíve seen from DJ defense too. See you guys next game.

Blazers leaving the door open, but we can't get over the hump. Some tough luck with Luka drives and all. Also get Wes off the floor. DJ non-existent on defense. Why are we going over screens when that's clearly not working?

Oh c'mon Powell. Nice effort on the glass, but he has to pass that one back out again. Surrounded by three guys smh. And then he takes a three ofc... His early season mojo us completely gone it feels.

Remember that we had no business winning this. So let's just be thankful for five minutes of extra basketball.

Bullets:
  • I said yesterday how everything has to click for us to win road games. Today we got nothing from Wes. So it was a loss. He hit two big threes late, but overall it was one of those horrible showings. Most hilarious: Down three, Harp said how you don't want to rush a three here. Wes of course rushes a bad three. You can't make that shit up.
  • God I'm so ready to move on from Wes. So ready. Hilariously, most drives that Wes takes and fails at, Brunson does better.
  • JJB reminded us why he sometimes can be completely annoying. Overdribbled, tried to do too much, bad shots all over the place. He and Devin pretended it's the 90s with all sorts of low-percentage midrange clanks. Don't like what Devin brings lately anyway.
  • Maxi + Powell duo is mostly good because Maxi is and Powell a random pick and roll wingman. Had some nice plays around the basket, but he's clearly limited on offense and does too little on defense. And stop shooting threes ffs!
  • Aminu nearly ended Luka's life. Except that Doncic is not the type of guy that's impressed. Still a great dunk.
  • Luka had tough luck with some shots. Decent layups that just wouldn't fall. Not his best game although he gave us another miracle shot and five minutes on extra basketball. And he of course didn't get obvious calls. I'm curious what the two-minute report will say...
  • Blazers lived in the paint. Some tough matchups for our guys that got constantly overpowered. This also sparked a crucial run by Portland in the second. Used their wings to post us up and drove consistently and we didn't have an answer. On defense, they have good hands and poked away many balls.
  • I think Doncic, Wes, Barnes, Kleber, DJ could have worked well against the length of the Blazers. Not that "I don't change the rotation ingame ever" Rick would try it though. I mean you have those versatile players and a true point forward. Use them!
  • Barnes is tough man, but the one-man show is sometimes hard to watch.
  • Would be interested to know why Rick has gone away from playing DFS with the starting unit. Especially on nights like this when Wes is playing like garbage, I'd like to change it up a little bit.

My phone died right as Brunson was bringing the ball up and I missed Lukas OT forcing shot....great shot and a great game by him.

I will say it again ...while he had a couple of mistakes, Brunson is the better and smarter player next to Luka.

Barnes has a. Very good game but man his fee tunnel vision attacks are infuriating.

Wes ...for every one good thing he did 3 stupid things.

Tough losses in the last few games but these type of games can make a team go either way and I hope that these moments make the Mavs stronger and better prepared overal.
