I can't wait. It's been a LOOOOOOOONG offseason. Go Mavs!

One thing I really noticed in the blue v white scrimmage was how tall the white team was on average. I think this year is going to be a whole lot of fun, and as much as I don't care for D. Powell, I think he may be one of the biggest keys to our success, if he plays like 2nd half of last year (which I have serious doubts about). I'm afraid he's going to disappear as a starter on this team, but we'll see. I hope I'm wrong. :-D

Disappointing to not see KP, but still the right call. 82 games is already too much load, when the league only needs 30-40 to determine who the top 16 teams are.

I like the idea that teams get less time to scout him

Then again, it seems super dumb, when anyone with a few dollars in his/her pocket can get League Pass. Teams are spending millions to get scouts to scour the globe for talent, but can't scout locally televised games on League Pass?

The excuse really does fall apart on further evaluation.

Yeah the excuse of it being harder for other teams to scout is absolutely rubbish.

I don't disagree with sitting him for a game per se, but why not tomorrow? And if they sit Luka tomorrow it'll be even more ridiculous tbh

It is super dumb. Not sure how Brad Townsend could speculate something like this.

What an odd decision. Why not let Luka and KP both play today and sit out tomorrow. They'll only be playing about 20-28 mins anyway. They could use some reps together, its nationally televised, fans are excited. It feels like a dumb Cuban ploy to get people to tune into both nights.

Preventing teams from scouting? its the first preseason game. RC won't be showing his best stuff anyway. And thats a fear based approach, as if we need that edge. Silliness.

I love that the number of people voting for Porzingis for player of the game is growing even after the news.

D-M.com is the best

Would rather KP play tonight as well. But would especially like to know why the hell the NBA scheduled us a b2b, on the road no less, in pre-season.

That's the one angle I like

NBA: Let's give you a B2B where you travel from OKC to Detroit late at night in preseason and make the first game a nationally televised game to make $$$

Rick: Cool. No KP.

I know rick is betting all will be forgotten 2 weeks into the season. Or cuban. But I won't. Freakin' year and a half, months on the team, but still not playing on national TV? What an a** move.

So alienate your fanbase and not get in reps to spite the NBA, who would either yawn or laugh at the suggestion? Its a weird decision. Only semi-logical explanation I can come up with is Cuban wants Mavs fans to tune in both nights.

There is no excuse for this that loyal fans want or deserve to hear. It's not like Rick hasnt had time to plan a strategy. Not taking advantage of playing them both together is a mistake on multiple levels. Has to be a joke

With all due respect, preseason games aren't for the average fan and 82 games is already too many games for most veterans and particularly players with an injury history. Fatigue sets in and increases the chance of injury as well for all players.

It's why guys like Rick and Pops use the five games in preseason for just minimal veteran training and then use the pre-allstar break as preseason/training. It's also why so many teams sit players even during the season. The teams that go to the postseason are the ones who still have the most in the tank when the season ends.

I am super disappointed not to see KP and Luka, but this is a good move.

Why not simply play both today and sit both tomorrow then? Have they mentioned anything about Luka playing both games or not? I don't care that much about them getting reps, as EL pointed out the season is a long slog and the games are virtually meaningless. But don't you want your devoted fanbase, who've waited months and months to see KP&Luka together, happy? Its just so tone deaf. Classic RC and/or Cuban.

I don't really see the reason for sitting players on B2Bs in preseason.
Just play them both nights for only a few minutes, it's not like we are necessarily trying to win.

Preseason is all about evaluating players and building a little chemistry. In our situation I think it is more important to evaluate our many role players and see how they might fit into Rick's system.

The teams that go to the postseason are the teams who have top 8 seeds. The west won't be anywhere near decided by all star break. A preseason game means almost nothing toward a regular season but if we come out like the last 2 seasons forget about climbing into the playoffs.

If load management is an issue he could rest him tomorrow or only play them both some in the first quarter. Plenty of other ways to handle it. It's not a smart move unless he is in pain or having an issue. Its merely just an odd move.

one thing is the B2B, so of course neither of Luka or KP are going to play both.

I can also understand the angle to let the Luka&KP debut for the first preseason homegame...

Bingo. Cuban wants to make more money.

I won't be watching until the regular season starts.

We lost on average around 9m per year from 02-13 or so. But now Cuban cares about money, and in a single preseason game at that?

preseason is anyway still too long. Cut it down to 3-4 games. preseason b2bs are just idiotic

Preseason games cost as much as regular season games to attend. Still seems silly. They wouldn't play much, so it really does make very little sense.

Find rationale wherever you can, but this is dumb. All the other duos or stars that are healthy are playing. Give them a half, doesnt even have to be all game.

Yeah I probably overreacted a little. Was just excited to watch the new duo. I donít live near DFW so itís nice to watch on a big screen when they are national TV. I still think itís a bizarre decision.

Would love if someone asks why the Mavs scheduled a B2B. The teams schedule the preseason, not the league
