Re: Kliff Kingsbury.
Jimmy Johnson took over Dallas in 1989. The Cowboys were 3–13 the year before.
JJ went 1-15, 7-9 and 11-5. Got blasted in playoffs, 38-6 at Detroit.
Today, he would be on the “hot seat” per Twitter football world.
JJ won the next two Super Bowls. 🤷🏽‍♂️ – 12:50 AM

Mavericks’ reaction to holding off Oklahoma City 104-102 on Monday night as Luka notched his 41st career triple-double.
mavs.com/mavs-thunder-l…12:44 AM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
3 triple-dbl for Luka in his last 5 games after 3 in his 1st 24. He’s really been all over the place. 21.8 pts,10.1 rebs 9.6 asst. 38.3 FG% 17% 3pt (9-53) 82.4 FT% (Avg a more Luka like 7.1 FTA. Also 1.5 steals. The asst/TO is much better at 2.2/1 (3/1 in the Trip-dbl games). – 12:28 AM

Before January, and dating to Nov 2016, the Mavericks were 1-57 in games in which they shot <40% inc losing 49 straight games from Nov 2016 until the Aug 2020 in the bubble when they bat SAC in OT. They’ve now won 2 straight vs GS and tonight vs OKC – 12:08 AM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Dorian Finney-Smith on Luka’s production amid a shooting slump: “Man had three blocks like the first three possessions of the game. He been guarding. Even though he ain’t been making shots, he been guarding a lot better than what people be saying.” – 12:05 AM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Coming into the game, OKC was the lowest scoring team & 2nd worst shooting team. For the 1st 30 min that played out as they scored 48 pts and shot 30.9%. And somewhat expected as Mavs have been strangling teams. But the last 18 min they scored 54 points and shot 67.9%. – 12:04 AM

Kristaps Porzingis sat final 3:51 of Mavs’ win after he vented in timeout after Shai Gilgeous-Alexander’s dunk over him. KP: “Just an internal thing … Players get frustrated with things. It’s nothing special. I got a bit frustrated in that moment, and that was it. We moved on.” – 11:57 PM

Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Josh Giddey said he thought the Mavs would stick with Shai, which would leave Muscala open. Dallas did a nice job of jumbling things up. – 11:34 PM

Josh Giddey has scored in double digits in all 8 games since coming out of Covid protocols.
Giddey in January:
13.8 points

Chef’s Kiss game for the Thunder.

Mavs beat the Thunder 104-102 for their 9th win in 10 games. Y’all can breathe now. – 10:54 PM

The Thunder is going to have a chance here, down 104-102 with 2.6 seconds left. My guess is that Giddey is going to inbound this ball. – 10:52 PM

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has scored 30+ in three of his last four. He’s been terrific late in this one. – 10:50 PM

I didn’t see the Luka ankle thing that apparently happened – 10:40 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Bad to worse: Luka just went down favoring his left leg after Lu Dort appeared to clip is left leg while planted.
Limped off to the bench, but he’s going back in after the timeout. – 10:40 PM
Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Luka Doncic went down after an inadvertent Lu Dort kick to his left ankle. As he limped off during the timeout, Doncic offered constructive criticism to the refs. He’s staying in the game. – 10:39 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Luka Doncic just stepped on Lu Dort’s foot and grimaced from the pain in his left ankle. Appears he is staying in the game. Mavericks up 97-91. – 10:39 PM

The Shai Gilgeous-Alexander take over. Love hearing Pinto’s energy on that slam. – 10:34 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
If OKC wants to stay in the Top 4 of the Jabari/Chet/Paolo race, they gotta pull Mike Muscala ASAP.
Moose too good. – 10:34 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Delayed triple-double tweet: Looks like officials credited Luka with a rebound a couple possessions ago, so he’s got his 41st career triple-double:
18 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists with 7 mins to go. – 10:29 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
I guess they gave Luka that last rebound that was contested on the baseline. He has his 41st triple double of his career. Mavericks up 87-80 after Hardaway’s 3-pointer with 7:45 left. – 10:29 PM

Mavericks up 77-72 going into the fourth quarter. Hard to believe it was 70-48 at one time. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (26 points) having a big night, as is Luka Doncic (15-9-10), despite 2-of-12 shooting. – 10:19 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Thunder were down 70-48 with 5:42 in the 3rd.
It’s 77-72 at the end of the 3rd.
SGA scored or assisted on 19 of 24 OKC points in that run. – 10:19 PM

OKC trailed by 22 with six minutes left in the quarter. – 10:17 PM

If the Mavs would like to win this game, they’d be wise to not allow the Thunder another 22-2 run. – 10:17 PM

Thunder respond to falling behind 70-48 with an 18-2 blitz and Mavericks’ once-imposing lead is a rather tenuous 72-66. OKC with the ball. 1:01 left in the third. – 10:12 PM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Mavs had a 22 point lead.
Less than 3 minutes later, OKC is within single digits.
Just an average Monday night for a Thunder fan. – 10:12 PM

A quick spurt and the Mavericks are up 67-48 with 6:45 to go in the third. Luka with 13-8-7, but it’s the defense that’s working, holding OKC to 32 percent from the field. – 10:03 PM

They finished Q2 on an 11-1 run over the last 3:37 after OKC cut their lead to 41-40. – 9:38 PM

Mavericks get a little sizzle going in the final minutes of the second quarter to get ahead 53-42 at halftime. – 9:37 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
It’s hard to nitpick given his effectiveness on drives, but Shai turns down a few catch-and-shoot threes every game. Most aren’t corner looks, but they’re open.
Taking a few of those might help his downhill game even more. Especially when defenses sell out against the drive. – 9:37 PM
