Luka couldn't get 1 friggin assist in the last 6+ minutes of the 4th for a TD. SMH That was a big, stinking pile of crapola going down the stretch, and I think THJ was the worst of the bunch.

I was worried about the tank, but then Luka dunked the ball with 5 seconds to go and missed the free throw. I knew Denver would win it after that clock management. Luka is in on the tank, whether he wants to admit it or not.

I really wanted to see a Mav win with a Luka TD. If that were the last win of the season, I'd have been happy with it.

Feel bad for Luka. 2 games in a row where if he makes his ft's at a rate he should we win. Jokes of tanks aside, I don't want it to get in his head. I know his idol is Lebron, he doesn't need to shoot ft's like him though.

Don't feel bad for him... it will be something for him to work on in the off season..and you can bet he'll come back and be a much better FT shooter next year.

I'm sure he'll get it together, but Luka really needs to be up in the low 80's.

Such a ridiculous, invalid, illegitimate complaint. There was a time when posters here were more observant and knowledgable.

Powell isn't that type of jumper. Doesn't have that kind of hops, or explosiveness. Neither does Kleiber for that matter, and he got blocked last night trying; ended up shooting and making a fadeaway. But no criticism from the peanut gallery for Kleiber. Can only speculate why. (FWIW, even Prime Dirk didn't have that type of leaping ability really.)

On the P&Rs, Powell gets a running start at the rim, and jumps off two feet, using momentum to gain height. But that's a different athletic feat than going straight up from a standing start. He is not a one-legged jumper either, and isn't particularly long-limbed.

Powell is trying to diversify the ways he can score, with varying degrees of success. Guarantee that this is at the direction of the coaching staff. If Powell limited himself to standing at the top of the key a la DeAndre Jordan, he would be a much less effective player, and the know-nothings would be complaining that he was forcing the Mavs to play 4 on 5.

Powell started developing a 3, and has improved; it's a work in progress. Now he is using the threat of the 3, and putting the ball on the floor, and beginning to get some calls. He is doing what his ability allows him, he just needs to get better at finishing. He has made significant strides this year.

16 points, 10 rebounds, 1 block. Outproduced Jokic throughout the game. Defended Jokic into a tough shot on the final play. Jockic made it. That's the NBA. Different game if Luka had hit his FTs.

If Powell opts out of his contract, can the Mavericks re-sign him to a richer, longer deal? Or will they just extend him? I don't think he's going to another team either way.

Thats funny.
Through 41:30, Jokic had 4 points.

Through 43:30, Jokic had 6 points.

Through 46:15, Jokic had 8 points.

Joke must be on you, Mr. Fact-Based Science Guy. /s

And why wasn't Kleiber, in your 'estimation' a superior defender, on Jokic for the final possession (the one after Doncic missed a FT)?
