I wish Luka would just dunk it on someone with authority... but no... this happens. Down 105-104. ;(

Amazing they didn’t convert on that fast break. Luka is right at the rim and kicks it out instead

and this why I don't get too high on Brunson

You can't trust him late in games on either end of the floor.

In fact the team looks whack when asked to handle the ball late in games. That's why Luka has to do everything

Boston defense clamped down on everyone. He’s made shots late this season. 12 ppg on 52% is great for a bench player.

It's sad how good Powell was before that injury. Then you see how he is now. I didn't want to believe that his career was over, but it's looking that way. 3 seasons left on his contract including this one.

16 points in the 4th quarter is not good enough?

THJ does that at times as well right?

If you noticed I said late in games in my post. They both tend to do some things that gets you beat.

Brunson played great right up til the 2:00 minute of the 4th that's when he had the silly foul on Walker (4 Point play), Terrible pass turnover, bricked a 3 and had a offensive foul called on him.

I'm not saying bench him I'm just saying I don't trust him late in games but I probably feel that way about 80% of the team right now LOL.

He has no lift anymore you can clearly see it especially on his lob dunk attempts.

But tonight he had like 2-3 shots at the rim and he just couldn't jump at all.

I understand KP and Kleber were both out but i just hate when he's automatically thrown into the starting lineup over WCS or Boban who are both more productive.

I'm just glad by the start of the 3rd when RC saw him struggling he didn't waist anymore time and pulled him for the rest of the game.

The biggest question again though is why even start him to begin with because you already know he's not the same guy.

He was put in a bad position late in thr shot clock a couple of times. Without him we lose this game. He's still getting better and tonight I can't ask for more much more from him.

DFS bricked a wide open shot late too and Luka was too passive down the stretch, until those last 3s. We just need everyone to stay calm and be smart to finish these games. Losing a 12 pt lead with 3 mins shouldn't be a constant fear but we still have it.

Everyone not named Luka played bad those last two minutes. Without brunson running the offense with Luka out, this game is not even close. We in a good position that we've found a guy that can hold the second team together when Luka sits. And can also play with Luka. Wasnt it like two weeks ago, Luka kicked out a drive to a Brunson 3 in the corner to ice the game? He's definitely a guy I trust late in games.

Edit: well the offensive foul was bogus. Bricking a 3? Yeah a lot of guys do that. He was 5/7. Luka also turned it over in the 4th iirc. Hes the second best offensive player on the team.

James Johnson wins Defensive Player of the Game belt as Mavericks top Celtics

Johnson who set the tone for the Mavs in the first quarter. He came out aggressive with six quick points to keep things close.

His final stat line won’t blow fans away. He finished with eight points, three rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 28 minutes. Impressive considering that he had not played in almost 20 days.

The Mavericks needed his size and physicality to match up against the Celtics. Boston started big with two traditional centers in Tristian Thompson and Daniel Theis, but have Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown hunting switches. Johnson has the size and athletic ability to defend any of the four.
