Anthony Slater: Klay Thompson last night on his injury: “I’ve got a sore ligament. I’m happy it’s just a muscle that got strained a little bit. No damage. The X-rays were negative so I’m happy about that.” Said he will play in Game 2.

Tim MacMahon: Christian Wood is well aware that Mavs are discussing potential trades involving him. He says he’s trying to stay off social media and talk to Jason Kidd and GM Nico Harrison as much as possible. What is he hearing from them? “Uh, nothing,” Wood said. “I hope I’m not traded.”
Brad Townsend: Thinking out loud: While waiting on Brooklyn as it attempts to expand the trade and/or move Dinwiddie elsewhere, I wonder what offers the Mavs might be getting for Irving. And if so, are they listening? When I spoke to Dorian Finney-Smith last night, he wasn’t certain he’ll be a Net.
