C.J. McCollum after Luka Doncic dropped a 15-15-10 triple-double: “He’s the road man. He did a bit of everything,” – 2:07 AM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Asked Dwight Powell if he also thinks he’s, like, leading the league in getting hit in the face:
“I mean, I definitely feel it, that’s for sure. ”
Said he “left a tooth in Memphis” and it looked like he had some new marks from tonight. – 2:06 AM
Sean Highkin @highkin
CJ McCollum: “We played well enough to win last night. We didn’t play well enough to win tonight.” – 1:01 AM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Jalen Brunson, looking at the Mavs’ box score and realizing he and Luka combined for 26 assists to 3 turnovers (all by Luka 🙃):
“That’s big-time. I didn’t realize. Jeeze. Yeah that’s big.” – 1:01 AM

The Mavericks had 7 players in double figures tonight: Porzingis (22), Brunson (20), Bullock (15), Dončić (15), Powell (15), Kleber (12) and Finney-Smith (11).
Dallas improved to 6-2 this season with 6+ scorers in double figures, and a perfect 2-0 with 7+ in double figures. pic.twitter.com/UZ8vBezMek12:46 AM

Tony Mejia @MejiaDinero
Brutal 5% result in Suns/Jazz. Thought we’d see a much faster pace but Utah allowed Phoenix to dictate and rode with Whiteside over Gay/Paschall at the 5. Started 7-0 on Wed. NBA card so I’m disappointed to finish 8-2. Blazers rout Mavs. CP3 assist prop a dud too. On to Thursday. – 12:44 AM

Jalen Brunson recorded 20 points, 6 rebounds and a career-high-tying 11 assists to go with 0 turnovers.

Luka Doncic’s 6th triple-double this season:
15 points, 15 assists, 10 rebounds and counting … if Jason Kidd puts him back in with 2:28 left and the Mavs up 20.
Don’t count it out after his unusual rotation patterns tonight. – 12:24 AM
