Mavs hold Jazz to their lowest point total scoring first half all season. Lead 52-36 at the midway point.

Luka magic on full display last night! He demoralized defenders of all sizes. Time to close the coffin on Thursday on the road! Utah may blow it up after this season.

Yup! and we can use a couple of those players if we don't sign Jalen Brunson. I prefer to keep Brunson though!

Would love to see dallas take care of business tomorrow, and hope Phoenix does the same. Booker may be out another 10 days to 2 weeks, and I wouldn't be upset if Phoenix played the first couple of games of the series without him.

Shooting the same volume of shots, just not making them. We've got 24 minutes to turn this thing around. Let's go Mavs.

Great game and boy that missed free throw and last attempt by Utah should have gone in!

Hope booker remains hurt. Phoenix is darn good and Paul is an ageless wonder! But he can't defend Brunson.

In the words of famed ex Rangers skipper Ron Washington...that's how "basketball" go.
We shouldn't have lost game 4 when Dwight Powell missed those 2 free throws.

And yes, the Suns are darn good on both ends of the court. Without a true Big Man, offensively the Mavs game is predicated on spreading the floor and getting good open looks. Both Luka and JB are excellent at doing that. We have multiple shooters and it's hard for teams to get out on the perimeter to defend the 3.
Bottom line....I like our chances if we continue to make shots.

I almost forgot the added glee of Mavs victory over Utah. Dwyane Wade is now a part owner of the Jazz.

Phoenix will be tough. Mavs are still in it, though. And Wade's team is a mess and done for the season. Go Mavs!

Gonna be a tough series for the Mavs for sure. Jason Kidd says no one gives them a chance against the best team in the NBA. I think he likes the underdog card.

"It's not us against the world,” Kidd says. “It’s just us against the Suns, and everybody has the Suns favored.''

I hope you're right....

The 3 times Dallas lost to Phoenix this year, Dallas had a different line up and lost all three games by a small margin (less than 8 points)
I think Dallas is a better Team Now, both the addition of Dinwiddie and because Brunson is blooming at the right time. Dallas needs a good contribution from the rest of the team...

I'm hoping they can pull a few Ws and get the Suns guessing and eventually win the series.

The Motivation that THIS IS THE BEST TEAM IN NBA and if we beat them we can beat everyone else is a good motivation...

Like I posted earlier IMO the Mav's Achilles heel is lack of a true big man to defend down low, get boards and second chances on misses. Very few teams (if any ) have won championships without having an aggressive center in the paint.
The Mavs game is predicated on spreading the floor and forcing teams to come out and defend their multiple shooters. GOTTA MAKE SHOTS!! When we make shots, teams will come out in an attempt to guard the 3pt line and that's when Luka and JB drive to the basket for easy shots.

I thought the Mavs had shooters. Good grief. The Suns don't miss even contested shots.
Hard to believe New Orleans won 2 games in that last series.

There's still hope. No way the Suns shoot this good again and No way the rest of Mavericks have such a bad day again. I have hope to steal one in Phoenix and bring it to Dallas. Now they know what they're up against and a good wake up call.

Their shooting was INSANE last night and Chris Paul makes some stupid shots! If Brunson and Dinwiddie can show up and the Suns shooting comes back down to earth a little we have a chance. Luka and the guys didn't seem to be on the same page for a lot of the game, a lot of his turnovers were him throwing the ball away to where he thought others would be but weren't.

Agree on both accounts.
The Mavs were in the game even with some uncharacteristic turnovers by Luka and hardly any contribution from JB or Dinwiddie. The Suns also hit some stupid shots and the Mavs missed some free throws that would have-could have maybe made a difference.
Both teams seem very similar and possess some great shooters. That said, you have to give it to the Suns in that they have pressure in the paint and get a lot of second and even third chances on offense. They had 51 rebounds last night and twice as many offensive rebounds as the Mavs.

The late game run to make it competitive was a good sign. Have to build on that to make it close. They definitely have the ability. Just have to make it happen.

Much better 2nd Qtr by the Mavs. Crowder is shooting out of his mind to keep them close.
Luka needs some help in the 2nd half.

Got em on their heels! Lots of fouls. Thought we were in big trouble when sun's got in the bonus with 9 minutes left in 2Q but Luka is willing this team. Brunson looks way off and no rhythm with his fouls. Let's steal one tonight!
