Default 2024 Playoffs Round 1: Dallas Mavericks @ Los Angeles Clippers

Game 1: April 21 2:30CT/12:30PT

Now that we have an official time, figured bring back game threads for playoffs.

First off, incredible season and accomplishment for this team to get 50 wins. Truly special one in the Luka era. Personally the second half has been the most enjoyable season since Dirk. And naturally, Mavs face the Clippers for the 3rd time in five seasons.

So what do we know? Lively fully practiced with the team on Tuesday. Kawhi participated a quarter of practice Tuesday. Assume he's playing full strength.

What's different this time around? In the words of Luka "We got Kai"

Time to make some noise!!!

Are you okay if this becomes a round 1 thread? Seems like we have a tradition going back at least 5-10 years of doing one thread per round.

You better be in full Mavs gear head to toe or you're banned from here.

I actually think this series goes to 7...at least 6.

If youre twitter brained like some of us, Nick Wright joined a warriors fans "space" after they got eliminated, and calmly debated and cooked those loser fans. Kinda blew up almost 10,000 people were listening in.

(a "space" is where people host a group to chat basically, anyone can join)

Today, he said he might join a Mavs "space" after one of the games vs Clippers. FYI he had Luka has his MVP.

Clearly Sunday needs to get here because I've run out of stuff to talk about lol.

There was never any doubt he would play, but the playoff injury rate has been shocking so far.

Too many games are played and players are run down by the end.

Kawhi had injection in his knee.

I expect him 100% and to be a nightmare.

You expect him 100% after having a knee injection?

I sincerely doubt he'll be 100%, but an 80% Kawaii is still easily one of the best two-way players in the league.

We'll be in trouble if he is 100%.

My brain from the last two series won?t allow me to think anything below fully healthy kawhi.

With that said, Lawrence Frank asst with clippers said kawhi has not taken contact in practice at all. So we?ll see. Half mind games half seriously injured

Yeah, that's pretty crazy that he hasn't done contact yet. But yes, it could be a ruse.

And I had no idea Lawrence Frank was president of the Clippers.

I do expect him 100% after knee injection or damn close.

Before getting both knees replaced, i got injections every 3 months for a cpl years. A day or 2 after each inj, i was close to pain free. Unless he injures a different part of the knee, the injection will likely carry him through the POs.

They probably postponed the injection he needed to time it perfectly for this playoff run.

Per Kidd on Lively: everything is trending in the right direction, he is ready to roll



clarification on the kawhi knee injection: supposedly he got them 3 weeks ago? not sure if they imply he got more injections this week.

However, if his knee is still this inflamed AFTER injections from 3 weeks ago...not good for the clippers

Plus knee injections tend to be less and less effective and actually lead to worse outcomes longterm

Either way F KL. Run his ass through screens and PnR from our bigs as much as possible.

Skip Bayless said kawhi is OUT for game 1.

I know I know, but he supposedly has a good track record for this. I don?t think he?d say that without reason. Now kawhi may still play but it sounds much closer to a game time decision than questionable.

It's simply not good coaching if you aren't hunting him every offensive possession. Two guys can easily make those switches happen. Limit his offensive effect and I don't think these versions of PG and Harden can carry, certainly not Westbrook.

Well, a player not doing contact practice two days before a game usually doesn't bode well for actually playing.

But I hope he does play so there are no excuses. Mavs finished with a killer mentality. Nothing the Clippers do roster rise should or will change that.

Yup. I have zero sympathy and I hope they go at him hard. They hunted Luka. Stepping on his heels and hitting him in the head etc. F them.

It would make it sweeter, but the excuse is alreadt built in. If he plays, its "Oh KL wasn't 100%". We have to get past them, whatever way we can.

Don't think it really changes much. Clippers are still very, very good. We could easily lose this game.

Key is to how to respond when things aren't going your way.

oh and GO MAVS!!!!!!!!!!!

Plenty of time for Mavs to get ready for Game 1 in LA, while Clippers will be rushed and for the games will feel more like away games. IF Mavs peoperly optimized the preparation.

I am ready baby! Let's do this! Part of me wants Kawhi healthy. I don't want excuses as to why we win (if we do). I also think it would better prepare us for the next round if were to play.

All of a sudden they are acting like we are a good team, when we knew it all along.

Not a great start. Mavs have to come out more prepared. Shooting poorly and allowing 65% and 50% from three in yet another first quarter.

Neither Kyrie nor Luka have been scoring. We're only within 7 because of PJ
