Yeah I'm really liking the Mavs. There's multiple occasions where 4 of the 5 Mavs on the court are white. Its nice to see some diversity in the NBA as the progressives would say LOL Unfortunately Rick can't sort out their defensive scheme and its costing them games.I just happened to check in on the Mavericks and realized they have JJ Reddick to go along with their 3 white starters. Should be a good post season. Also good to see Grayson Allen getting more starts this season.
The next game after Kennards 28 and 7 explosion he plays 19 minutes!While looking to see how Grayson Allen was doing, I noticed from last nights game between Memphis and LA Clippers, that former Duke teammate Luke Kennard had 28 points and 7 rebounds for the Clippers. He's only started 15 games and seems to do very well when he does. The Clippers signed him to a 4 year $64M contract. Just doesn't make since that he's not playing a more prominent role.... or does every non starter make $16M per year?
Also, I have seen Kevin Love playing again. He was on on track to be a HOF, but injuries have put his career in jeopardy. He's averaging 16.5 points and around 9 rebounds over the last 7 of 8 games. Good to see Love on the court again. He was once a monster on the boards and scored as well.
The next game after Kennards 28 and 7 explosion he plays 19 minutes!
The Atlanta Hawks continue to be a very fun team to watch with 3 of our guys. Two of them are starters and the third guy comes off the bench. The Hawks beat the Bucks tonight
and are on track for the NBA Playoffs. From todays win here is how our guys did:
Bogdan Bogdanovich 32 pts, 3 assists, 1 rebound and 3 steals.
Kevin Huerter 20 pts, 3 assists, 2 rebounds and 1 steal.
Danillo Gallinari 15 pts, 2 assists and 3 rebounds off the bench.
It was a good night for some of our guys like usual. I'm especially happy the Nuggets and the Mavs are playing such good basketball out west. In the east Indiana is probably the team to root for with Miami having an off year.
Stats from some of out guys tonight:
Luka Doncic 31 pts, 20 assists and 12 rebounds. Another triple double!
Maxi Kleber 17 pts, 1 assist, 1 rebound and 1 blocked shot.
Domantes Sabonis 26 pts, 19 rebounds, 14 assists and 1 steal. Another triple double!
Doug McDermott 31 pts, 1 rebound, 1 assist and 1 steal.
