Luka Doncic: “I’m really happy to be back. I missed basketball.” Luka added he “felt great” after his pre-game nap. – 1:51 AM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
And while it might drive the analytics people nuts, I love how Jason Kidd wants to have Porzingis punish people when they elect to play small. Porzingis is feeling the love and its going to say long term benefits because he’s also going to be fouled more and he makes FTs – 1:50 AM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Tre Mann started showing the scoring ability that made the Thunder pick him at #18 overall before an injury and G League assignment.
Mann scored 30 points (including 4 3s) tonight in an OKC Blue win.
Maybe the most underrated player on the OKC roster. – 1:49 AM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
And good on Kleber hitting that monster three in OT, after missing the FT that would have put it away in regulation. Also, his excellent QBing to help beat the traps to get the ball out of Luka’s hands. A career hi 6 assists and NO turnovers – 1:48 AM

Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
That was a heckuva win for the Mavs. You know Doncic wasn’t totally right and then came up with a 15 pt explosion in the 3rd when they couldn’t make anything. They didn’t have Ntlikina and Bullock and then lost Brunson in the 1st half. Then blow the big lead late and still win – 1:46 AM
Mark Followill @MFollowill
The Mavs head home from their road trip with a win in Luka’s return, 112-104 in OT against the LA Clippers. The Mavs outscored the Clippers 9-1 in OT after the Clippers finished regulation with an 11-1 run in the last 90 seconds. The Mavs raise their record to 10-7 w/ the win – 1:45 AM

Ah, the Joy of the game’s 48th minute. Versus the agony of the next 5. That’s the story of the Clipper’s loss to Dallas Tuesday night. 5-game home-stand is 1-1 with Detroit coming in Friday afternoon. – 1:27 AM

Three-game losing streak is over. Mavs are now 6-0 in clutch games in which Doncic plays. Finney-Smith scored a team-high 10 of his season-high 17 points in the 4th quarter. Porzingis scored 6 in OT as Dallas outscored Clips 9-1. – 1:24 AM

Mavericks throwing a shutout in overtime, up 110-103 with 1:42 to go. Of course, they were up by 10 with 1:30 left in regulation. Feel good for Maxi Kleber, who missed a free-throw that could have sealed it in regulation, but hit a 3-pointer early in overtime to spring the Mavs. – 1:21 AM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Good grief, Mavs heading to OT as Paul George bobbles inbounds pass, but drills 3-pointer from the corner. Very close whether he got it off in time. But my guess is it’s going to OT simply because not much has gone right for the Mavericks lately. – 1:07 AM

I’ve been tracking this for awhile… Reggie Jackson has his first 30-point game since February 22, 2019.
And Maxi Kleber split FTs, so Clippers have a chance down 103-100 with 1.1 seconds left.
Clippers haven’t played in OT since August 2020. – 1:04 AM

Mavs not getting control of the tip when it was 7-3 Porzingis against Mann was a tough result. – 1:02 AM

I counted five fouls on Mann and Morris on Porzingis before they called that jump ball – 1:01 AM

In a sequence that fits this game perfectly, Jackson rebounds a missed Doncic 3, hurries into the frontcourt, gets into paint, leaves feet… and finds Maxi Kleber.
LA has 2 timeouts, but trail 102-97 with only 19.9 seconds left. – 12:58 AM

Tre Mann had a career high 30 points tonight in the OKC Blue win. – 12:57 AM

Through most of the fourth the Clippers have doubled Luka out high to take the ball out of his hands. Mavs done the same thing to PG13. It’s come down to whose role players hit shots in the 4-on3 that creates, and it’s been Dallas. – 12:56 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Mavericks playing with their food a bit, with Doncic throwing up an airball of a corner 3 and Porzingis failing to score over Kennard.
Jackson gets to 28, and then Kennard hits a 3. Mavericks 10-point lead down to 102-97 with 59.1 seconds left. – 12:55 AM

Fantastic finish to the third quarter for the Mavericks with a Sterling Brown layup in traffic and then a banked-in 3-pointer at the buzzer. Mavericks ring up 38 in the quarter and lead 80-76 going into the fourth. Brunson ruled out the rest of the way (left foot). – 12:32 AM

Luka sits, and Sterling Brown and Trey Burke wind up scoring 10 points in last 2:57 of what was a dreadful third quarter for Clippers.
Mavericks up 80-76, with Luka Doncic and Reggie Jackson each with 26 points. Porzingis with 19, George with 18.
Let’s see who else steps up… – 12:32 AM

Mavs 80, Clips 76 | End 3 | It was Luka (15 points on 6-for-8 shooting) vs. Reggie (14 points on 5-for-6 shooting) in the third.
But the Mavericks outscore L.A. 38-28 in the period to take a slight lead into the final period. – 12:31 AM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Mavs 80-76 after 3 quarters. Dallas is 41-7 the past two seasons when taking a lead into the 4th. Good news for the Mavs is they aren’t playing Phoenix, which has four of those seven comeback wins. – 12:31 AM

Hitting a 3-pointer while falling into the Clippers’ bench at the third-quarter buzzer is by far the most notable thing Sterling Brown has done in a Mavericks jersey. – 12:30 AM

That’s 26-minus-12 … 14 points so far this quarter for Big Government. He’s keeping the Clippers in it. After PG’s free throws (he’s 10-11 tonight, the third-most attempts in a game all season), they lead 76-75. – 12:29 AM

How are the Mavs still semi-in this game despite shooting 0-13 from 3-point range and shooting 30% overall? Defense? Paul George has 5 points and the Clips have only scored 17 second-quarter points.

Tyronn Lue was going to call that timeout the moment Eric Bledsoe threw a lob to Ivica Zubac… when Zu was facing the other way.
And Lue was absolutely pissed when he did, because that turnover led to a rare fast break bucket for Dorian Finney-Smith.
LA still up 32-28. – 11:21 PM

He’s in tip-top shape. – 11:05 PM

Luka Doncic draws a technical foul and Serge Ibaka, as a savvy vet, physically separates Doncic from Terance Mann. These two have a history that goes back to the fall of 2019. – 11:05 PM

Luka got a T and the crowd seems to feel all the ways about it. – 11:04 PM

Terance Mann drew a foul on that drive, but he seemed to bypass possible looks in the previous couple possessions, stuck on creating for teammates — before eventually turning it over both times. – 11:04 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
The Clippers’ weakness tonight offensively has been their tendency to get into the paint and then throw the ball away. Ty Lue preaches the extra pass but it’s been a little careless tonight. – 11:04 PM
