Michigan WR Ronnie Bell accepted the invitation to this year’s #SeniorBowl. He feels his ex-teammate Aidan Hutchinson helped changed the culture as a rookie in Detroit and wasn’t surprised by his success. “He’s a monster,” Bell said. pic.twitter.com/J3uTRjTrfu – 3:25 PM
“Yap back, Luka!”
@Zach Lowe is all for Luka chirping at opposing coaches 🤣 pic.twitter.com/Gtgo2IVeKQ – 3:20 PM
If you looked at only regulation games, the 53 for Luka last night against the Pistons was the most in a game in Mavs history (Luka’s 60 and Dirk’s 53 were both in OT games). Incredible shooting line, 17-24 FG and 12-13 on 2s! pic.twitter.com/Ob7myQk6KW – 3:18 PM

It’s better to characterize the Pistons as “listeners” entering next week’s trade deadline, rather than sellers.
Bojan Bogdanovic hasn’t received an assurance that he won’t be traded. But the safe bet remains that he’ll still be a Piston on Feb. 10.

After watching Luka rumble for 53 points in his return from what essentially amounts to a two-game injury absence … let’s put a bow on this Monday with a fresh burst of Trade Deadline Latest: marcstein.substack.com/p/nba-trade-de… – 11:37 PM

The Raptors are 23-29. Their next six games are against the Jazz, Rockets, Grizzlies, Spurs, Jazz (on deadline day) and Pistons. If they can’t muster up a bit of progress by then, they’ve gotta pull the trigger on a big trade of some sort. – 11:18 PM
Asked what Pistons assistant Jerome Allen said to get himself and Luka Doncic chirping all night, Doncic said: “I don’t know. From the first quarter he was just chirping. I don’t want to say the words. I have no problem with that. It’s basketball. It gets me going, for sure.” – 11:17 PM

Some more Mavs history tonight. 53 points for Luka Doncic, tying the 2nd most in a game in Mavs history. Started with 24 in the 1Q, and had 18 in the 3Q as the Mavs chewed up most of an 11 point deficit. Mavs beat Detroit 111-105. – 11:16 PM

Bey on Hayes: “The confidence he has and the confidence we have in him is unmatched. Like you said, most of those were wide open. We live with those every day of the week.” – 11:07 PM
Saddiq Bey: “I take accountability for down the stretch.” – 11:06 PM
Bey on the frustration at some of the calls: The best thing to do is try to get it back the next possession. We can’t blame it on any one specific thing. I just take accountability down the stretch. – 11:06 PM
Bey: We played as hard as we could. The decisions start with me down the stretch. It definitely hurt, I feel like we should’ve won this one. – 11:04 PM
Saddiq Bey: “I think we played as hard as we could. We’ve got to make better decisions, starting with me down the stretch.” – 11:04 PM
Luka Dončić finished tonight’s game with 53 points (17-24 FG), setting a new franchise record for a regulation-length game.

Luka Doncic, scoring *and* chirping master tonight vs. Pistons: “It was their assistant coach. He started chirping in the first quarter. They didn’t like when I chirped back. They said ‘Play basketball.’ If they’re going to chirp at me, I’m going to chirp back. I’m not scared.” – 11:02 PM
Clint Capela gets more uncontested offensive rebounds on the same possession than anyone since Detroit-era Andre Drummond. – 11:02 PM

Mavs star Luka Doncic is the 4th different player in the last 50 years with four 50-point games prior to February (Jordan in 1988-1989, Kobe in 2005-06, Harden x3). Luka’s 5 50-point games are more than the rest of the Mavs had in their history combined (4). @ESPNStatsInfo pic.twitter.com/zkRiCqlixH – 10:59 PM
Final: #Mavs 111, #Pistons 105.
Luka Doncic explodes for 53 points to lead Dallas to the victory. Mavs guard and former Piston Spencer Dinwiddie scored 10 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter. – 10:59 PM

Mavs’ scoring tonight vs. Pistons…
Luka Doncic: 53 points
Everyone else: 58 points – 10:58 PM
FINAL: Mavericks 111, Pistons 105. Detroit controlled much of the first three quarters, but the game flipped once Dinwiddie got some shots to fall with Luka on the bench early in the 4th. Pistons aren’t happy with the officiating. Luka scored 53. – 10:58 PM
FINAL: Mavs 111, Pistons 105. Should be an interesting postgame press conference. Casey still having a few words with the refs after.
Bogey: 29 points
Bey: 18 points
Ivey: 14 points
That was a fun basketball game. – 10:58 PM
Mavs earn a comeback win over Pistons behind Luka’s 53 points. Early recap here.

Sure, Luka Doncic had 53 points tonight, but he’s still only averaging 26.5 PPG in his last two games. – 10:57 PM
Getting chippy. Livers just exchanged words with McGee. Refs had to diffuse the situation. Casey has been furious with the refs all night. Pistons are frustrated – 10:56 PM
I haven’t seen Casey this mad at the officials in a long time. He’s got a point. The Dinwiddie airball, shot-clock reset was the turning point in this game.
Also, Livers and Doncic just had to be separated. – 10:56 PM
Burks stole the ball from Green with 20 seconds left, but Green poked it away from Bogey on the other end. That’ll do it – 10:55 PM
Bojan is knock-down in crunch time.
#Pistons pic.twitter.com/uKCzDaINBt – 10:53 PM
Bojan Bogdanovic could swing the title for someone. I don’t think I could accurately describe how good he is to anyone who hasn’t frequently bet against the Pistons this season. He puts the fear of God into you. – 10:53 PM
It’s been a shootout between Luka and Bogey these last few minutes, but Dallas is ahead. Pistons down 109-105 with 41.8 seconds to go – 10:52 PM
Bey had a chance to tie it on a layup and it looks like the ball slipped as he was going up.
Mavs miss on the other end but get an offensive rebound. Luka bucket.
Huge, huge blow.
Mavs up by four with 41.8 seconds left. – 10:52 PM
– 19th 50-point game in NBA this season, matching last season’s leaguewide total
– His league-best 4th 50-point game of season
– 5th career 50-point game, one more than all other Mavs combined
– First NBA player with four in a season since 2019-20 (Lillard 6, Harden 5) – 10:52 PM
51 points and counting for Luka Dončić against Detroit …
It’s the 19th 50-point game of the season leaguewide and a league-fourth this season for No. 77.
More NBA from me: marcstein.substack.com – 10:50 PM
Bogey and Luka are trading buckets and this has been a fun-ass game. – 10:50 PM
The fifth 50-point game of Doncic’s career and fourth this season. – 10:50 PM
Luka Doncic has his fourth 50-point game of the season and fifth of his career. – 10:50 PM
Bogey is a bad man. Just hit a tough middy to cut the deficit to three with under two minutes left.
But Killian just fouled out with 2:38 to play. Both of Detroit’s healthy point guard shave fouled out. Livers is coming back in, joining Duren, Bey, Bogey and Burks – 10:48 PM
Killian Hayes just fouled out with 2:38 left.
Casey bringing in Isaiah Livers. – 10:48 PM
Rough shooting night for Killian. He’s 3-16.
Had a chance to give the Pistons the lead there. – 10:41 PM
Mavs lead the Pistons by three and Luka is checking back in. – 10:39 PM
With 6:30 to play, Ivey just fouled out. Pistons are down 96-91. – 10:37 PM
Mavs open the 4th with a 9-2 run, with Luka on the bench. Pistons timeout, down 92-86 with 8:36 to play – 10:32 PM
Dwane Casey trying for a technical after Mavs got an extra possession and shot clock although ball may or may not have hit rim. Regardless, Mavs score and go up 92-86 with 8:36 left. They are winning the fourth-quarter non-Luka minutes. – 10:32 PM

Not a good start to the non-Luka minutes for the Pistons. – 10:28 PM
Doncic has 45 points and he might need to get 60 again for Dallas to pull this thing out. – 10:27 PM
END OF 3Q: Pistons 84, Mavs 83. Detroit has weathered every Dallas push, but a one-point game with Luka this locked…
Should be a fun fourth.
Bogey: 17 points
Bey: 16 points
Ivey: 11 points
5 fouls for Ivey and 4 for Livers – 10:26 PM

Luka Doncic: 45 pts (14-19 FG, 5-10 3PM, 12-16 FT), 5 asts – 10:26 PM
End of 3: Pistons 84, Mavericks 83. Detroit led by 11, but Dallas rallied back. Still anyone’s game. Luka has 45.
Bogdanovic: 17 points
Bey: 16 points, 5 rebounds
Ivey: 11 points – 10:26 PM
Luka has 45
His teammates have 38
And Luka’s going to need 50-60 because Pistons enter 4th quarter with a lead – 10:25 PM
Trailing by 11 midway through the third quarter, the Mavericks have rallied and are only down 84-83 going into the fourth. To state the obvious, they can’t afford to get swept in the season series by Detroit. – 10:25 PM
It’s a close game, but through three quarters, Luka Doncic holds a slim 45-38 lead over the Dallas Mavericks. – 10:25 PM
Luka Doncic has 45 points (14-19 FG) through three quarters — and the Mavs trail the East’s last-place team by a point at home. – 10:25 PM

Luka Doncic has 34 points. The rest of the Mavericks have 29. The Pistons have 74 and an 11-point lead with 6:14 to go in the third quarter. – 10:07 PM
Pistons are 4-7 from 3 in the 3rd so far. Bey hit three of them, and Bogey just hit the fourth to extend Detroit’s lead to 74-63. They’re just playing really good basketball. Moving the ball and hitting open shots – 10:05 PM
Midway through the third quarter and Luka Doncic has outscored his teammates, 34-27. – 10:04 PM

Pistons open the 2nd half with a 7-2 run and are now up 11, biggest lead of the night. Early timeout for the Mavericks. This looks like the Detroit team that beat Brooklyn last week – 9:56 PM
Now the Mavs’ worst nightmare is happening: Luka is joining his teammates as “cold.”
Pistons are up by 11 in the blink of an eye. – 9:56 PM
Bey opens the 2nd half with a pair of 3-pointers. Good sign for Detroit that he’s warming up – 9:54 PM

Halftime: Pistons 57, Mavs 53. Luka has 27, but this game has gone favorably for Detroit thus far. Remove Luka from the equation, and the Mavs are shooting 11-30.
Bogdanovic: 14 points
Hayes: 8 points, 5 assists
Livers: 7 points
Duren: 7 points – 9:38 PM
Mavericks are down 57-53 at halftime. Pistons aren’t playing like a 13-38 team. Mavericks are shooting just 30 percent (6-20) from three-point land. Work to do in the second half. – 9:38 PM
Not getting a shot off there is inexcusable. Doncic walks off the court in disbelief after catching a pass from Hardaway at the buzzer, too late to get off a shot. – 9:37 PM
Bogey is cooking, cooking. He ends the first half with 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting.
Pistons take a 57-53 lead into halftime. – 9:37 PM

Bogey hits a middy and 3 on consecutive possessions. Pistons are up eight. – 9:34 PM
The NBA is weird. This is a good defensive game for the Pistons so far because their blitzing of Luka is working. Executed very well.
If the Mavs were hitting shots, though, this would be a terrible defensive half on paper. – 9:32 PM
Pistons lead 50-47 with 2:18 left. Killian Hayes leads the team with eight points. Three players (Livers, Duren and Bogey) have seven. – 9:30 PM
Ivey has been Detroit’s best offensive player and Livers the best defensive.
Both have three first-half fouls. – 9:28 PM
Jaden Ivey was called for an offensive foul on that shot attempt and then picked up a tech. – 9:27 PM
Ivey just picked up his third foul, and a tech. Livers checks in for him. Pistons don’t have enough guard depth to bench him for long. – 9:26 PM
Nice pass by Ivey to get Killian his second 3 of the night. Make it a 13-2 Pistons run – 9:25 PM

Mavs not named Luka are 5-20 from the floor. – 9:21 PM
Pistons’ bench wasn’t taking advantage of all these Mavs misses, then Burks hit a tough one and Stewart got an and-1.
Tied game. – 9:19 PM
McGee entering. Mavs changing things up, and why shouldn’t they? They’re tied with the 13-win Pistons. – 9:19 PM

Luka Doncic just scored 24 points in the first quarter despite possibly losing hearing in his left ear. pic.twitter.com/wJm9lmpeUu – 9:13 PM
Through 1 quarter, Luka on pace to score 96 tonight. #WiltWatch – 9:13 PM
Doncic is on the bench to start the second quarter. So some other Mavs should start scoring. Theoretically. – 9:13 PM
END OF 1Q: Mavs 30, Pistons 27. Luka has 24 of Dallas’ points lol. He’s different.
Jalen Duren has seven points for Detroit. Pistons probably don’t mind how Dallas’ points are distributed in the long run. – 9:12 PM
End of the 1st quarter: #Mavs 30, #Pistons 27.
Duren: 7 pts, 2 rebs
Bogdanovic: 5 pts, 2 rebs
Hayes: 5 pts, 1 reb
Luka Doncic: 24 pts (7-8 FG, 4-5 3FG, 6-8 FT) 1 ast
An offensive explosion by Doncic. – 9:11 PM
End of 1: Mavericks 30, Pistons 27. Detroit overcame an early 10-0 deficit. Luka already has 24 points. Not getting much help even though the Pistons are prioritizing getting the ball out of his hands.
Duren: 7 points
Hayes, Bogey: 5 points – 9:11 PM
We have reached the end of the first quarter in Dallas. pic.twitter.com/Z3bVu9WkJ9 – 9:11 PM
Luka Doncic looks pretty good in his return from a sprained ankle. He scored 24 points in the first quarter. Mavs 30, Pistons 27 – 9:11 PM
Oh, nothing: Doncic has 24 of Dallas’ 30 points after one quarter.
And if the Pistons keep this thing interesting, who knows how many points he’ll score? – 9:11 PM
Quick 2️⃣4️⃣ points for LD in the first quarter 🔥
@Luka Doncic // #MFFL pic.twitter.com/53AHEAoyKZ – 9:10 PM
Doncic is shooting some dagger looks at these refs. Cruising toward another technical, it appears. – 9:07 PM
Maybe the most impressive thing about Luka Doncic is his ability to develop unwavering beef with the most unremarkable of opponents. – 9:01 PM
Luka Doncic has 18 points and counting in the first quarter against the Pistons. He’s 6-of-7 overall and 3-of-4 from 3. – 9:00 PM
While Doncic was out rehabbing his sprained left ankle, hope his back got some needed rest: He has 18 of Dallas’ 20 points. – 9:00 PM
Luka has 18 of Dallas’ 20 points, and the Pistons have the lead. I understand his frustration – 8:59 PM
Pistons’ recipe during the last time they played the Mavs is working again. They’re allowing Dallas to shoot wide-open 3 if it means getting the ball out of Luka’s hands.
Dallas is 2-7 from 3 to start.
Forcing the others to make shots. – 8:59 PM
Technical foul on Theo Pinson on the Mavericks’ bench. Kind of a no-nonsense ref crew, it seems. Mavericks now down 22-17. It’s been a 22-7 blitz since that early 10-0 lead. – 8:58 PM
Dallas opened the game with a 10-0 run, since then, Pistons have outscored the Mavericks 16-5 and have taken the lead. Quick 7 points for Duren. – 8:55 PM
Mavs haven’t done anything since Pistons doubled Luka. Detroit is on a 16-5 run. – 8:54 PM
From 10-0 to 13-11. Just when you thought the Mavs might make quick work of the 13-win Pistons . . . – 8:51 PM
From 10-0 to 13-11. Just when you thought the Mavs might make quick work of the 15-win Pistons . . . – 8:50 PM
Took a couple minutes for Detroit to wake up. Pistons are on a 11-3 run, and are down 13-11. They’re 5-10 from the floor after starting 0-4 – 8:50 PM
Pistons have started making shots and doubling Luka. It went from 10-0 to 13-9. – 8:49 PM
The Pistons come out of the timeout and convert as Bey knocks down a corner 3. Bey then picks up his second foul of the game. He’s staying in, though. – 8:48 PM
It’s Mavericks 10, Pistons 0 with 9:19 left in the first quarter. Luka has eight of the Mavericks’ 10 points. Mavericks have not done anything wrong so far, Pistons nothing right. – 8:46 PM
The #Pistons are down 10-0 to start the game after Doncic connects on a 3. Dwane Casey calls a timeout. – 8:44 PM
Mavs are soft doubling Bogey when he puts the ball on the deck. He’s made good reads but Detroit has missed two wide-open 3s.
Dallas up 10-0. – 8:44 PM
Mavs 10, Pistons 0 at the 9:19 mark. Pistons have missed some good shots – 8:44 PM
10-0 Mavericks, with 8 of the points being scored by Doncic. Welcome back. – 8:44 PM

📅 On this day in 2018, the @Houston Rockets James Harden had 60 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists versus the Magic.
He became the first player in NBA history to record a 60 point triple-double, a feat that has only been matched by Luka Doncic.

I asked Dwane Casey pregame about young players coming into the NBA with aspirations of being a star and/or go-to guys, but 99.9 percent having to eventually settle in as role player. When does that realization happen?
Thought his response in regards to Detroit was insightful: pic.twitter.com/yBo4u9YlEE – 7:18 PM

Luka Dončić (left ankle sprain) will be available for tonight’s game against the Pistons.
Maxi Kleber (right hamstring tear) and Christian Wood (left thumb fracture) will remain out. – 6:47 PM

I think one thing that gets a little bit of an overreaction when evaluating the Pistons at the deadline is Bogey’s age. Yes, he’s 33, but he has a career-high usage this season, is having his best scoring season and has only missed three games. – 3:26 PM
Players with 1000+ PTS, 250+ REB and 250+ AST this season:

On OG Anunoby, John Collins, D’Angelo Russell, Pascal Siakam, Bojan Bogdanovic and a bunch more Suns trade targets that are ambitious but still realistic: bit.ly/3Dp8vOA – 2:09 PM
Wild news: Mavs are open to trading just about anyone not named Luka Doncic for a star player.
Teams have asked for Dorian Finney-Smith in the past and Mavs have quickly countered and made a deal not involving DFS, so hold onto your butts bc the deadline is still 10 days away. – 2:05 PM

Defensive wings that are young, cost controlled, and within Denver’s TPE:
Wendell Moore Jr.
Jaden McDaniels – 12:57 PM
Dallas would be prepared to move a 29-year-old defensive specialist for a star? What a sacrifice.
(I know Finney-Smith became very good in his role between 2019 and 2022, but you don’t need roles until you’ve got stars.) – 12:57 PM
The Jazz-Dorian Finney-Smith talk doesn’t seem to make sense for either Utah or Dallas, as much as I like him a ton. He remains my first Western Conference guess on Poeltl each day – 12:52 PM

Pretty big week for the Mavs. Only 2 games. Both at home. DET the 2nd worst team in @NBA, the other, NO, presently playing worse than anyone. It starts w/DET which provided 1 of those unexplainable early season losses. @PeasRadio pre at 7. Tip w/Brad & me at 7:40 @971TheFreak – 11:35 AM
