Jason Kidd’s message to Mavs for Game 5: “Chris and Book are coming, so we have to understand there is no feeling your way into the game. The jump ball, they’re going to attack, and we have to be prepared for that. … It’s about will and want at this point.” – 8:49 PM
Gerald Bourguet
@GeraldBourguet
“Well deserved. He did an incredible job this year.”
Jason Kidd, when asked about Monty Williams winning Coach of the Year, brought up and dismissed the narrative that the Suns were supposed to win, noting that nothing is a given in this league and that they won 64 games – 8:37 PM

Monty Williams says Suns had a healthy respect for Mavs before the series, but now that they’ve lost 2 straight “there’s an heightened” respect and appropriate amount of fear.
Then he noted that Suns have in the past responded well to this scenario. – 8:28 PM

Monty Williams before Game 5: “Our guys have a healthy respect for Dallas. We did, and after you lose two the way we did, there’s a heightened respect and more than appropriate fear, and in my mind, that’s when we’re really good.” – 8:27 PM

Monty Williams on the situation with the Mavs fan and Chris Paul’s mom: “It’s a hard one, because it’s happening more and more, and the situations are getting to a place now where I really feel like families who are in to support their loved ones need to be protected a bit more.” – 3:29 PM

Here’s Luka Doncic winning the half-court shooting contest (that he requested) for his group.
Before Dorian Finney-Smith took his turn a few guys later, someone shouted “Ferrari Doe!”
After DFS missed, Luka shouted back: “Hey! Toyota!” pic.twitter.com/ZJn9qhJ9ok3:10 PM

In Game 4, the Mavs got wide open 3s from:
-Targeting Deandre Ayton and JaVale McGee
-Devin Booker being too far off shooters
-Suns over-helping and shadowing toward Luka Doncic

Sneaky Doncic. Mavs were playing a shooting game where only 3 balls were allowed to be in play. Doncic tossed a fourth ball to one of the rebounders, who put it into play, disqualifying that group. Then he tried to walk away, not-so-innocently. pic.twitter.com/9vxSRh6hFT2:42 PM

I know griping about refs is a time-honored privilege for fans everywhere, but through four games of the West semis, the Mavericks and Suns both have made 63 free throws. Mavs have actually taken nine more. Neutral would be a fair way to sum up the refs. – 1:34 PM

Love the national talk about bad officiating in Mavs/Suns now …like it wasn’t a factor before.
The refs have been bad/inconsistent this series, negatively impacting both teams.
Luka getting his 5th on a trash call had every bit the impact as CP3s actual fouls, even if touchy. – 1:06 PM

Dorian Finney-Smith used to be told to only take 3s if it was late in the shot clock. “Now, they’re telling me to shoot it as soon as I get a good look,” he said after making 8-of-12 in a Game 4 win, showcasing his development into an elite 3-and-D player. es.pn/3yhQss29:08 AM
