That 2nd half by Luka reminded me of Bad Boys II when Will Smith screams at Martin Lawrence “FROM NOW ON, THAT’S HOW YOU SHOOT” An all world player played like an all world player – 1:27 AM

If asked, will Desmond Bane participate in the 3-point contest this season?
Bane: “Most definitely.” – 1:17 AM
Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Dallas vs Memphis is very realistic as a potential 3 vs 6 or 4 vs 5 matchup.
Luka Doncic on possibly seeing Memphis in the playoffs:
“They have a complete team. Everybody knows their roles. If we’re going to get them, it’s going to be really tough to beat them.” – 1:13 AM
Reggie Bullock @ReggieBullock35
BIG TIME WIN‼️ – 1:11 AM
Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
The Mavericks are hopeful Jason Kidd can return to the bench Saturday to resume coaching against Orlando, sources say.
Dallas is 3-1 with Kidd in NBA protocols under acting coach Sean Sweeney, ending win streaks for Chicago (9) and Memphis (11).

Luka Doncic was very complimentary of Ja Morant. He said Morant deserves the attention he’s getting, including passing him in the most recent All-Star voting.
“He’s just a different player. His athleticism is above everything. He jumps out of the gym.” – 12:55 AM
Mark Followill @MFollowill
Some important things tonight:
Memphis #1 in paint pts (55.6/gm), Dallas won that battle 72-50. Memphis top fast break pts team (16.6/gm), advantage Mavs 23-11. Grizzlies lead NBA in rebound pct & were +11/game in rebs during their 11 gm streak. Mavs outrebounded the Grizz by 11. – 12:50 AM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Ja Morant said that one game won’t define this team. He adds they were all tired by the end of it.
“I wasn’t locked in. Throwing the ball all over the court.” – 12:50 AM

The way Mavs have been finishing games vs good teams (Outside of NY when they were never really in the game) has been incredible in Jan.

Against Memphis tonight Luka Doncic had 27P/12R/10A. Luka now has 40 career triple-doubles. The other 349 players who have appeared in a game in franchise history for the Mavericks have combined for 40 triple-doubles. And 21 of those were by Jason Kidd! – 12:41 AM

Dallas outscored Memphis 34-18 in the third quarter. Remember, the Grizzlies played last night, so theoretically this would be the point in the game where Dallas is the fresher-legged team. – 11:50 PM

Doncic needs 2 rebounds and 2 assists for his 40th career triple-double — to go along with his 14 points so far.
He would be the 11th player to reach that milestone. – 11:31 PM

Extremely sloppy offense from the Grizzlies in this third quarter and they trail again. Totally out of sorts. – 11:30 PM

There’s hope within the Mavericks organization that Kristaps Porzingis can clear health and safety protocols as soon as tomorrow, but it’s extremely unrealistic to think he could play against Orlando tomorrow, and or probably even Monday against OKC. Hasn’t practiced in 2 weeks. – 11:20 PM

Mavs trail in MEM 55-50 at half. Rallied from nine down in 1st qtr to take 2 pt lead. But big 3pt play by Ja right before half gives Griz the edge. Morant 15 for MEM. Doncic 9-6-5 for Mavs. 2nd half soon @theeagledallas11:14 PM
