“In Madison Square Garden I don’t think there is anything I would love more than that,” Smith said of the thought of playing against his former team. “To be honest, I really don’t think there is anything I would love more than that. I’m still good friends with everybody on that team, like I just did (Dorian Finney-Smith’s) camp, Luka calls me every other week, I just did the baseball game with (Devin Harris) and Dirk, you know all the older guys, I’m still friends with everybody on that team. But, you know I love to compete, so any chance I get to bust that ass, you know I’m good for it.”
Mike Fisher: ALERT – Now official: #Mavs have re-signed free agent forward Dorian Finney-Smith. @1053thefan
Tim MacMahon: Sources: Mavs have extended qualifying offers to Maxi Kleber and Dorian Finney-Smith to make them restricted free agents. Dallas views Kleber and Finney-Smith as quality role players who fit well with their Luka Doncic-Kristaps Porzingis core.
Dwain Price: Carlisle on the status of Finney-Smith for tomorrow’s home game vs. Memphis: “I think there’s a good chance you’ll see him tomorrow. It’s not 100 percent, but I think it’s better than 50-50.” Finney-Smith missed the game Wed. vs. Minnesota after busting his lip Mon. vs. Philly.
Dwain Price: #Mavs forward Dorian Finney-Smith was describing a nifty two-handed pass Luka executed in practice when he said: “I told him it was real cute. He started laughing. He’s got some game. The Mavs’ fans are going to appreciate his passing.” @Dallas Mavericks
It will be Doncic, wearing his Mavericks No. 77, on the court at American Airlines Center, playing basketball, in front of what no doubt will be curiously excited crowd. “I just want to see him play, too,” said Mavericks forward Dorian Finney-Smith, who will start Saturday in place of injured Harrison Barnes. “I’m just as excited as y’all.”
Among the above, there are three players with non-guaranteed contracts: Maxi Kleber, Dorian FInney-Smith and Kyle Collinsworth. Kleber (who played 1,206 minutes last season) and Finney-Smith (who played 1,647 minutes the prior season before missing most of 2017-18 to injury) are fairly certain to be kept. It’s less certain, but entirely possible, that Collinsworth will be retained. For now, we’ve left him in the mix.
Dwain Price: “He’s big to be 19. He’s got a little wide body. I seen him shooting. He’s got a nice little stroke. I watched some of his highlights, too, so I’m ready to see him play. He can pass the ball. He looks like an all-around player.” — #Mavs F @Dorian Finney-Smith on Luka Doncic
Dwain Price: Since he’s been in the NBA 2 years, by rule, #Mavs free agent F Dorian Finney-Smith doesn’t have to play in the summer league any more. But, “I like to hoop,” Finney-Smith said today. “If they tell me to play, then I’ll play. If they tell me don’t, then I don’t.”
Dwain Price: Carlisle said Nerlens Noel, Dwight Powell and Dorian Finney-Smith will not play tonight against the Kings, He said he’s assuming Dirk will play tonight. J.J. Barea did not make the trip to California for personal reasons.
Dwain Price: Rick Carlisle on Dorian Finney-Smith: “He’ll play tonight and will likely not play tomorrow night for injury recovery management. With Wes (Matthews) out we need guys like him that can guard the (DeMar) DeRozans of the world, which is extremely difficult.”
Dwain Price: Carlisle said he anticipates Dorian Finney-Smith to play in one of the two ganes this weekend. The Mavs host Memphis tomorrow and Houston in Sunday. Finney-Smith has only played in 8 games this season due to a left quad tendinitis injury.
Eddie Sefko: Rick Carlisle on injured Mavericks like Seth Curry, Dorian Finney-Smith, Josh McRoberts: “We’re still hoping to get some guys back at some point. We’re just not sure what month. I’ve been wrong so far. Not December.”
Earl K. Sneed: Rick Carlisle says the @Dallas Mavericks will not rush Dorian Finney-Smith (left knee quadriceps tendinitis) back early, but he is making progress and could be back to 100 percent at some point this month.
Earl K. Sneed: Seth Curry, Dorian Finney-Smith and Josh McRoberts remain out for the @Dallas Mavericks today vs. the Clippers. Salah Mejri was originally listed as questionable, but Rick Carlisle says he will play. #DALvsLAC
Earl K. Sneed: Per @MavsPR, Seth Curry (stress reaction, left tibia), Dorian Finney-Smith (left knee quadriceps tendinitis) and Josh McRoberts (lower extremity injury) are all out for the @Dallas Mavericks against Milwaukee. #DALvsMIL
The Dallas Mavericks’ new 2-Way deal with wing Antonius Cleveland, an undrafted rookie out of Southeast Missouri State, is, GM Donnie Nelson tells DallasBasketball.com, the result of a trickle-down effect. “We certainly like Antonius,’’ Nelson tells us. “But this is also about ‘Dodo.’’ “Dodo’’ is Dorian Finney-Smith, the Mavs’ defensive-minded wing, himself an undrafted free agent from a year ago who is carving out for himself an NBA career … but who is presently being shut down by the Mavs due to a knee injury.
Earl K. Sneed: Rick Carlisle says he doesn’t expect Seth Curry or Dorian Finney-Smith to play tomorrow in Minnesota. Finney-Smith is likely to return soon.
Earl K. Sneed: Rick Carlisle says Dorian Finney-Smith has been battling tendinitis in his knee, which is why Maxi Kleber has been seeing time at SF.
Dorian Finney-Smith: @Ronnie2K @NBA2K #NBA2K18 #2KFirstLook Here it is. Much better than last year!! 😈
This season, Nowitzki battled through the Achilles injury to play in 54 games, which is the lowest number of outings since his rookie year. He also averaged 14.2 points and 6.5 rebounds in 26.4 minutes per game, connecting on 43.7 percent from the field and 37.8 percent from three-point range. Nowitzki became just the sixth player in league history to reach 30,000 career points as well with a 25-point performance in a 122-111 home win against the Los Angeles Lakers on March 7. And according to Nowitzki’s young teammates, seeing the 7-footer reach the career milestone is a memory they’ll always cherish. “It was an honor. It was an honor to be on the court with him,” Mavs undrafted rookie Dorian Finney-Smith said. “You couldn’t tell me last year that I would be on the court, especially after the draft, when he hit his 30,000 (points), so I was just happy to experience that.”
