Nice little hesitation by Curry before the layup. Defense gotta respect KP at the 3 and Curry used that sweetly.

I'm just hoping that we don't get the Lakers or clippers in the 1st round because I'm not sure who defends LBJ, Leonard or George if we decide to roll with Curry starting at Sg and THJ at SF

Defensively that is a recipe for disaster down the road

Kleber's progress is becoming near-superb. He's starting to shoot 3s from everywhere and not just catch-and. If he can sustain the percentage, he'll grow into a tremendous and more-than 3-and-D guy.

Great movement again, spacing the floor, shooting 3s, and then moving for the rebound. It will not be easy at all for WCS to steal minutes from him.

The sad thing about Kleber is that he gets recognized only when he produces offensively. The guy has been playing superb defence for months now. Defence is his bread and butter.

I don't agree with that. Maxi really started turning heads with his blocks when he first came to the Mavs, and he has always been solid defensively, and for me at least, very much appreciated. Offense from him was always icing on the cake imo. However, the improvement in his 3-pt shooting this season has really taken him to another level.

Yes. I agree with you. Close Mavs watchers know that he is extremely solid primarily on defense. But, I see so many games go by where he doesn't put the foot wrong defensively, gives his best every single play, and nobody mentions that at all especially folks on TV.

Don't wanna jinx this, but I like the way game is being handled thus far as we enter the clutch.

Worked because Magic doesn't play physical in the paint. WCS will be needed for more physical teams.

Kleber after the game: "going hard and doing the right plays every time."

That's exactly what he does !!

Yep when we play Denver, LA, Portland. Utah, New Orleans, Phoenix or Minneosta big"s who more inside oriented than we'll have to give him more help

We already saw how Gobert, Howard and Ayton feasted on us inside the paint not on the perimeter.

Might have to play some zone defense to protect KP vs the big inside centers

New Orleans will be intriguing because they start Zion up front with Favors and there's no way in hell DFS can defend either one of them....

So it'll be interesting to see how RC counters

Rick deserves very little criticism this season, but the idea that we shouldn't be posting up KP was definitely false. KP is excellent in the high post against smaller defenders...at least lately. He is also great around the basket which is why he works as a small ball center.

KP has arrived. That is all.

Yes. Today KP had: 24 10 5 and 5. That is all-star performance.

But the most impressive thing for him is his offensive versatility. When facing a big, he shoots from the outside. When facing a small he posts up. And then, to top it off, he's got tremendous movement on defense given his size.

Slowly, knock on wood, RC is turning him into a unicorn.

EDIT: p.s I think RC never said (or meant) KP shouldn't post up. He was making the point that he shouldn't indiscriminately post up. That is, post-up when you have a clear advantage there (vs. a small) and stretch the floor when you can draw out a slower big. And, if you think about it, that's how a unicorn should play. Someone who can do it all with that size.

He was already a unicorn before he got to Dallas

He just wasnt being utilized to maximize his talent the way he was in new york

His game in new York was versatile and he spent the better part of this early season just being a spot up shooter

This is the Porzingis I think most of us were expecting based on his usage and productivity before he arrived in Dallas

Yep, it had nothing to do with him sitting out for 18 months, or learning a new system in a new city, or playing a different position than he is right now. It was definitely the coach's fault. 100%. This is in no way ridiculous, so naturally, everyone agrees.

New York Knicks are a shit show. I think no sane person would disagree with that. And when KP was there, he was not used like a unicorn, but like a wild horse with tremendous attributes: go out there and do what you can (while following some basic, well-established bball precepts (i.e. pass the ball when you're doubled on the post-up)). He ain't stupid. That's why he made a fuss about leaving that place. He got the nickname because of what others saw he could do, not because he was used well or smartly.

In Dallas he is learning to know exactly what he needs to do at any one moment, alongside what each of his teammates needs to do at that same moment, and then to go out and do it. There's a world of difference between what he's trying to do (and, hopefully, slowly doing) now and what he did then. And he still ain't stupid. That's why he has nothing but extreme praise to say about Dallas, how he's being used, the system, learning, etc.

Guy who gave him that nickname, wanted badly to live in New York, but chose the other team after seeing what they do with their unicorns.

Mavericks in a win over Orlando
Luka 33pts 10reb 8ast
KP 24pts 10reb 5ast 5blk
Maxi 26pts (you could hear some fan in the 1st qtr yell "Wurzburg in the house")
THJ 16pts 6reb

Doncic and Porzingis became just the third set of teammates to have consecutive games of 20-plus pts, 10-plus reb and 5-plus asts in the last 50 years. The others are Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler and Kevin Love and LeBron James.

Kristaps Porzingis in tonight's win:
24 pts, 10 rebs, 5 asst, 5 blks.
Dirk is the only other Mav to have at least 20P/10R/5A/5B in a game...at DEN in Jan. 2006 & the famous 29 pt 4th qtr game vs Utah on Nov. 3, 2009

If Dirk got 33/10/8 in a game I’d be posting that squirrel, but when Luka does it I’m kinda “meh” about it... Dude is like clockwork, a near trip-dub feels routine.

From the Athletic

"Porzingis has always had the reputation as being a scorer who can attack from anywhere on the floor and put the ball in the bucket but his passing game has seen an uptick this season. Before this year, his career-high was four assists and now he’s had three games with five assists, including two straight games now."

KP and Maxi wow.

I agree with the other poster who said Luka consistently doing 30+ near triple double is meh. Not really it's fantastic but talking about that is less appealing than not playing WCS at all.
I mean WCS doesn't get any minutes? ...at all? Fire Rick's ass before the Hawks game.

I was being funny, but KP arriving makes all matters less important. I do want Willie to get minutes though. Thank god they let KP and Luka take all the time they want to rehab injuries. Paying off (knock on wood).

Luka is already a superstar so I find no need to keep praising him other than That boy good!

KP has been one of my favorite players since he came into the league.

I like that that they are using him more in some of those same mid range post up areas that they used Dirk at for many years especially the high post ft area

I believe he has the ability to be a #1 option like a Anthony Davis or Jokic

I think Gordon would thrive in Dallas

I wouldn't judge him as not being a good fit because of his production in Orlando

Dude would made a terrific roll man in Dallas heavy pick and roll system plus he's a really good defender that could provide flexibility.
