Mavericks had a sensational opening quarter, leading 41-25. Luka and Porzingis combined for 24 points. Mavericks shooting 65 percent and clearly aren’t happy about the blowout last night at Golden State. – 10:42 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Last time in Portland, Kristaps Porzingis set his season high with 34 points.
Tonight KP’s already up to 14 points in 9 mins and will almost for sure surpass that tonight if he plays long enough. – 10:33 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Kristaps Porzingis on close friend Tim Hardaway Jr.: “He was down at first…But I talked to him now, and he seemed to be in better spirits already.”
Said THJ was already quizzing Theo Pinson, who’s had a similar foot injury, about rehab and getting back. dallasnews.com/sports/maveric…12:42 AM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Bad night all around. Blowout is a blowout, but the Hardaway loss is significant as he had made 11 of his last 27 from 3pt (40.7%) when he got hurt. They need shooting. And they’ve got guys slumping. DFS 9 for last 38. Bullock 7-27. Porzingis 8-27. – 12:37 AM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe

See ya in Portland tomorrow night, homie. – 11:54 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Warriors wearing out a PnR with Steph and Wiggins to get Luka on him, then going right into a PnR with Porzingis’ man. Getting great looks every time. – 11:22 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Pretty much every time the Warriors have gone directly at Porzingis on the perimeter they’ve gotten a wide open shot. KP has done a nice job protecting the rim with a couple blocks though. – 10:46 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
If Steph and Klay are hitting from the outside, Mavs with Porzingis hanging out by the rim don’t really have a great counter. – 10:09 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Mavs starters: DFS, Kleber, Porzingis, Brunson, Doncic
GS starters: Wiggins, Porter, Looney, Thompson, Curry
