I think Kemba is worth a look in Dallas. I’ve got some concern with both him and Luka on the court defensively. If anything I think it could be key for the non-Luka minutes, him and Chris Wood project to be a good PnR duo. Kemba played with Wood in Charlotte in 2017 – 8:39 AM

Grayson Allen has already tied his season high with 5 three-pointers after the first quarter. #Bucks lead 41-33 after one. – 8:36 PM

@ESefko
Very much a defense-optional first quarter and the Mavericks trail 41-33 at the end of it. Luka has 13 points, five assists. Bucks shot 68 percent, Mavericks 61.9. Grayson Allen with 15 points for the Bucks. – 8:35 PM

@JimOwczarski
To use a football term on a #Bucks / #Packers Sunday – Jrue Holiday essentially traveled with Luka Dončić in the first quarter. Holiday played all 12 minutes, Dončić all but the final 13 seconds. – 8:35 PM

Two tough calls in a row against Giannis Antetokounmpo. One on an offensive rebound and the second on a charge.
He now has two personal fouls with 4:40 left in the first quarter. – 8:29 PM

Consecutive tough calls on Giannis. A loose-ball whistle that was late and a charging call, drawn by Dorian Finney-Smith. Antetokounmpo sits with two fouls and 4:40 left in the first quarter. – 8:29 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo picks up two quick fouls in the last few seconds – 4:40 remain in the first quarter. Brook Lopez returns to the court, but he also has two fouls. – 8:29 PM

Dallas is shooting 66.7% from the floor and 60% from behind the three-point line…
But the #Bucks are shooting 75% from both. They lead 30-16 in the first quarter. – 8:26 PM

@eric_nehm
Bucks’ offense continues to roll against the Mavericks. They’re up, 30-16, with 5:23 left in the first quarter.
Grayson Allen is 4-of-4 from 3. Jevon Carter and Jrue Holiday have each hit a 3 in the first six minutes as well. – 8:26 PM

Barely half of the first quarter is gone. And Milwaukee has 30 points, leads by 14 and the Mavericks can’t find Grayson Allen on the 3-point line. He’s made four without a miss. If the defense doesn’t show up soon, the Mavericks are going to be looking at an awful hole. – 8:25 PM

Doncic’s first shot attempt, 3:35 into the game, is a made 3-pointer.
But the Bucks lead 20-10 and show no sign of being slowed in any sense by the Mavs. Bucks are 8-11 from the field. – 8:20 PM
Frank Madden
@fmaddenNBA
My only complaint about Jevon Carter since arriving is that he’s been comically bad at getting Giannis the ball in transition — that time he sees Giannis and gets it to him with a head of steam for the finish slicing past Luka. – 8:18 PM

it must be genuinely relieving for luka to face normal pick-and-roll coverages (the bucks’ drop coverage) to start this game. brook lopez getting into early foul trouble might not actually be a good thing. – 8:16 PM

Early Bucks avalanche: 15-5 and Giannis only has two points. Doncic has yet to take a shot. – 8:16 PM

The #Bucks are up 15-5 on the #Mavs — and really the only reason Dallas has five points is because Milwaukee kind of fell asleep for a minute. – 8:15 PM

Mavs hoping history repeats itself re Hardaway. Go back to 19-20. Hardaway spent 1st 13 coming off bench and struggled. When Seth Curry got hurt, He was moved into the lineup vs GS & never looked back
Off Bench:10.2 pts/34.4%FG/29.5% 3pt.
Starter: 17.1 pts/45% FG/41.6 3pt. – 8:05 PM

JKidd says in our pre game talk despite size of Giannis & Lopez, there was no consideration given to starting Wood vs Hardaway. On 1 hand they need his scoring off the bench. On the other, they just got outrebounded 48-34 inc 17 off rebs, & MIL +6.0 reb diff is best in @nba – 7:01 PM

For Mavs at Bucks tonight, Reggie Bullock (rest) is out on the second night of a back to back. Tim Hardaway Jr makes his first start of the year. Since joining the Mavs, Hardaway in 126 starts averages 16.9 ppg, 43.6% FG, 38.7% on 3s. 7p for Mavs vs Bucks on BSSW. – 7:00 PM

This isn’t worse than the 3rdquarter on Friday night in Milwaukee for the #Cavs, but they’re pretty lifeless to start here, in addition to missing 9 of their first 10 shots. By watching the first 4 minutes you’d think the Cavs were the team that just got back from the west coast. – 6:20 PM

Gary Trent Jr. is in a horrible shooting slump and you have to feel for the guy, but he can’t let his offense affect his defensive effort. Here he misses a wide-open look, is soft on a backcourt trap on Luka and then gives 75% effort on the way back. Mavs get easy two. pic.twitter.com/YxX3b4soCN9:03 AM
