Can someone explain to me what happened when Luka broke Beal's ankles with that killer crossover? Why the hell was a whistle blown the other way? I was at the game and couldn't figure out what happened.

I think they called tripping on Brunson, who was the screener.

It's a win. That's what counts. I really enjoyed 2nd and 3rd quarters. Looking forward to next game and continued improvement.

KP: "Next time we don't want to give them any life at all."

He looks the part. He speaks the part. We might as well just call him Drago.

Feels real good to be above .500 and start off with a Win.

The Luka and Beal battle was exciting. It's good to have someone lock into him game 1 like that. There will be many others who will try him.

We stopped working as hard with a big lead and ended up shooting too many perimeter shots which is just a bit lazy but it happens. Better teams or maybe even a fringe playoff team at home would have probably climbed the hill.

I agree. How would you rank the Mavs in tonight's game? And where do you think J.J., Dwight, and Boban fit in? Do you feel like anyone else could make a regular appearance this season?

Jackson should at least start with Powell out. The starting lineup needs the offense.

The Lee stuff is just a waste of time.

ah i missed the begin of the game. Who took Dirks spot in the S5 introduction? Luka or KP? My guess was Luka switching from first to last and KP being the first guy in the introduction...

It'll take a very short period of time for the players to adapt... give them a week or two.. Just call it consistently. Don't give Lebron 25 steps and blow the whistle appropriately when it's someone else..

Yeah.:>), but don't get too hung up on the starters; RC (for the past half dozen seasons, or so --while the roster has been in year-to-year flux) has been famous for varying the line-up for a couple of months at the start of the season. It usually works itself out by about Xmas.

Nothing should surprise me anymore with Luka but I didn't expect THAT kind of game opening night. Luka was outstanding.

KP got off to a slow start but even when his shot isn't falling he is such a threat to score from anywhere it helps with our spacing. Real nice first game, but he is going to have to get more rebounds though. 4 boards is not all-star level but a win is a win.

DFS had a fairly quite but solid game. 7/8 FT's, 8 Reb.

I'm not trying to pick on Courtney Lee, but 16 minutes is too much for his production. I doubt RC sticks with the idea of starting him and it's too early to worry too much about it but for me, 8 of those minutes should have been given to Jax, or maybe split between Curry and Jax. He isn't going to boost his trade value by playing more minutes, at 34 he is what he is.

Jax needs more minutes. Period. Not hard to see that.

Wright stayed in the flow of the offense and had a solid overall game but it may take him 5-10 games to carve out his place in the SLU. I think he could look to score a little more instead of defer.

I'm ready for Dwight to be back, Maxi looked overwhelmed and a little lost when they were making their run last night. DP is just a better fit offensively.

Boban is a nice change of pace and will probably only be used in the obvious matchup with other REAL bigs.

JJ is going to be limited, but any given night he can turn a game around or at least give you quality veteran minutes and leadership. I don't expect him to ever get the nod over Brunson.

Three times I saw KP give up a rebound he had his hand/hands on to one of our guards/ball handlers. He could have had more rebounds if not for that.

I will take that over DJ last year bullying his own teammates out of the way to pad his numbers.

Yea with our guards and wing rebounding ability his numbers won't ever be standout, but there were a few times he didn't box out early and they got offensive boards on us. It's not alarming but at his size he needs to make sure 4 boards isn't a reoccurring theme.

As a lethal weakside shotblocker, his man is going to be in position for some offensive boards. I think Mavericks will still net a gain from having him intimidate inside shots. Whoever is playing the 5 is going to need to occupy some space inside.

At the other end, do you really want to move him into the low post, negating him as a 3-point threat, for a couple of offensive rebounds a game?

I'm not yet concerned with his rebounding yet on either side. Offensive rebounding isn't ever going to be a legit concern. I fully agree with the notion that him going for shots potentially frees up opposing bigs rebounding...sometimes. His job will be to learn to be effective at both shot blocking and rebounding. I'm sure he will

He looks like such a unique talent that I think we may have to put aside some expectations about what a 7.1 guy 'should' be doing. He almost looks as much like Durant 2.0 (minus ball-handling) as Dirk 2.0 (minus low-post moves).

So relieved to see him moving well--easily and fluidly--after 1.5 years off. He looked a little tight early last night, rushed, impatient, frustrated, and still played a productive game.

I think this will seem a bit like extended pre-season until Powell gets healthy, and until they find a legitimate starter for the 3. I'm going to take the first 30 games or so to just enjoy watching him find his way with Luca and whatever talent they can surround those two with, hopefully some upgrades sooner rather than later. (Mr. Ntilikina to the courtesy phone, please.)

I was obviously happy to see the diversity in KP's game.. We just watched the career of the most versatile big man in the history of the game. Dirk could take PF's/C's off the dribble throughout much of his career... Could operate out of the high post...could knock down the three..And now the Mavs have another guy with so many of the same abilities but with more athleticism. That's pretty freaking amazing. And Luka is just such a joy to watch. I won't ever feel the same way about KP and Luka as I do about Dirk but they're a fun watch.

Just watched the game and observed how well Jackson moves without the ball and how crafty he is in the paint. Wright still looks lost and Seth needs to get more involved.

Agree. Those were all legit travels being called. My comment was meant as a criticism of the players, not the refs.
