Never thought i would be screaming DAVIS DAVIS at the top of my lungs.
How the hell have the last 2 balls out of bounds gone to the mavs? It was their players swatting that direction, but out on the suns!?!? Wtf!?!
got tix to game 3 and 4....game 4 is my bday...hoping to take a broom with me to the game
this is death...sorry, but u will not make it till game 4
Everyone in here talking about “mavs shooting isnt sustainable” yet the suns shot 65%😂😂
I know it was garbage time but frank made a lot of great defensive plays and had a catch and shoot 3. Hopefully he plays meaningful minutes
07 Cavs vs 22 Mavs would be a damn good series
Suns fan here. We’re the best team in the league. But Luka Dončić might be a top 3 player in the world. Was he getting cooked on defense? Yeah, but he’s asked to carry damn near the greatest offensive load in the NBA, and kept his team in the game for the first half. He’s an all-time offensive weapon, and him being tired isn’t really a knock on him. Any player would be tired having to run a heliocentric offense with hardly any help from his supporting cast. LeBron might be the only guy to ever be elite on defense as a one-man offensive engine.
KD, kyrie, and Giannis exist
How is KD in any way a heliocentric player? He’s played with elite playmakers his entire career, and the first time he was his team’s primary initiator in a playoff series (this year), he struggled heavily. Yes, it was probably his best passing season ever, but he’s still nowhere near the level of playmaker of Luka or even Giannis. KD is an all-time great scorer, but heliocentrism is more about elite playmaking (which is more conducive to better offenses than elite scoring). Nash, Harden, Luka, and Trae are examples.
I’ve already said why I don’t think Giannis is quite on that level offensively (far lower usage than the aforementioned guys). Kyrie is a ridiculous example. He’s not an elite playmaker. He’s an isolation scorer, who can’t single-handedly make a team an elite offense. He’s immensely overrated by his flashy handles and aesthetic scoring.
Mans deadass said Kyrie in the same list of offensive talent or two-way skill as KD, Giannis, and Luka 💀
Giannis but he gets gassed too
I don’t know if I’d say Giannis is a heliocentric player, or as much of one as Luka/Rockets Harden. They brought in Jrue to take the initiating and playmaking load off Giannis, and it resulted in a championship. Giannis does a lot more off-ball, and doesn’t have nearly the same usage.
yeah Luka doesn’t have the superman body like prime Bron. You can’t use him like that. He needs more help.
I’m watched him “flex” and he looks like he eats nothing but sweetart ropes and Mt. Dew. Think you’d want to have the best body possible to maximize your skill.
Sucks that this series looks like a sweep.
54 fouls in 48 minutes
There was like 5/6 charges and moving screens called in like 10 possessions at one point
They just found another 20 fouls in the back of a truck. Its 74 now.
Who has thicker skin? Westbrook? Joker? Or Luka?
Joker because at least his issues with emotion all stem from opponents. Luka/Russ are easily affected by fans. Joker ignores heckling by fans
Jokic absolutely doesn't have thicker skin.
No one who pushes someone who isn't looking at them can get that term.
"Who isn't looking at them"
Stop it, bro. Lol
If he had thick skin he wouldn't push someone who wasn't looking at him.
So no I won't stop it because jokic does not have thick skin dude reacts so often to the littlest shit.
Fuck jokic doesn't even have the thickest skin on his own team
Ah yes someone trying to injure him is the "littlest shit". Turning your back away from someone after unnecessarily hard fouling them does not make you immune to retribution. Jokic was wrong to push him, but Morris had it coming for trying to run away after knee checking him in his previously injured knee.
So yes, stop the bufoonery.
I'm not saying Morris is a good person as Morris existing has basically 0 to do with it.
It's about jokic having thick skin and if he had thick skin he wouldn't of reacted, jokic is wrong for what he did, no matter how scummy Morris is or was that doesn't make what jokic did good.
And no Morris didn't have it coming the whistle was sounded, a real mature person would not push someone who's back is turned away after the whistle
Players get pushed all the time after dirty plays in the NBA. Morris was the one who was cowardly enough to turn his back and play victim afterwards. It uas nothing to do with Morris' prior offenses.
I never said Jokic had thick skin. I'm calling you a clown because your example is terrible. Thick skin isn't even ebout letting another player trying to hurt you and you just accepting it.
Having thick enough skin to accept that 1 player being a scumbag doesn't mean you need to act like an immature bull and harm someone, risking paralysing them because they hurt you.
Yes that has to do with thick skin he couldn't control his emotions and became an angry bear because he couldn't he couldn't handle it.
He has reacted poorly in other situations and lost his emotional cool and turned into a hot head but the Morris example is the first example where serious consequences came from it.
It only had "serious" consequences because Morris was a coward and turned his back. Most NBA players are going to defend themselves when players go for their knees. As they fucking should. It's self defense in the real world.
You might mean thinner? Thick skin means you don't care. With Luka, I'm being serious, he is the type of athlete that plays better angry, amped up. He thrives off it. I wish he was more Dirk-ish, but he isn't.
He was angry tonight. Especially in the second half. Didn’t matter.
I don't get people bad mouthing Luka's defense. He has to do literally everything else for that team.
Just imagine if Mavs could have gotten any one of McCollum, Nance, or Covington from the Portland fire sale.
In addition, defense is over-rated, the suns have so much firepower, the Mavs would need 4 new players to defend them off the court, they are better off trying to outscore. Let's say the Warriors face the Suns next series, think that will be a defensive struggle, lol, no, it will be a scoring fest.
Or will be a defensive struggle
The Suns firepower also comes from us playing amazing defense.
So far I haven't seen it, the Clippers were amazing last year against Dallas, you guys give away too many open shots.
We won the points in the Paint by 18 points, if a team is only going try and get open 3 point shots then we can love with it, they can't hit em all and it's an easy rebound for us.
Dude, Dallas literally has no inside presence. Ayton should average 30/12 this series.
Every team does that against the Mavs, in Draftkings, always play big men against the Mavs.
Ok and? Some open three's ment nothing in this game, they can't hit them all, 3 point only teams can't win shit.
17/44+ made? Ooo scary 20+ blow out.
I don't mind if the Suns win, relax, I'm just sitting back making thousands betting the overs and betting Ayton's rebound unders. Hope you are making a few thousand yourself, you seem very into the Suns lol.
I think dinwiddie just needs to step up
Yeah as a dinwiddie fan I’m disappointed in him
Out of shape? What a stupid thing to say
Turtle shaped on defense
I bet his calf is still hurting him, that's why he was in and out of the locker room.
Maybe, but he's obviously not in great shape and he never has been. He could be so much better which is scary.
Yeah, being 23 doesn't' help, we'll see if he gets serious about nutrition this offseason.
I didn't get serious till 30, was playing fairly high level in 3 sports and working a mentally challenging job.
that being said I wasn't a pro athlete and I don't know if they are stories but I've heard a lot of pro athletes have food (and sometimes drug) problem.
True, old Dirky Dirk Nowitzki didn't do the diet thing until 25 ish
Everytime one of the Suns players answer is "oh we just started playing aggressive" I'm like maybe start playing aggressive when the game starts, and don't stop.
It'll save me a lot of stress
No reason to start super aggressive if you can keep the game super close, tire out the other team, and then turn it up to 11 at the end.
I guess there's a reason I'm not an NBA coach. And that's definitely the only reason
Money can’t buy happiness(yea right) but seems like able to buy big tits
There are miserable rich people homie
Maybe now TNT can move on from Luka Magic. It doesn’t mean shit
For how great Luka is offensively, he sure gives up just as great a sum defensively.
Luka is a sweetheart! And top 3 in the league (offense only)
Chill out dude Luka is an incredible player
>Chill out dude Luka is an incredible offensive player
Luka is more interesting than any Suns player, sorry to say, Luka will continue to get basketball Jesus treatment, Chris Paul gets the insurance commercials though.
Why are you so salty? You won the game.
And why is so many of you Suns fans acting like that? Just be happy for what you have! You have a great team there.
Just TNT tho? Lol
Put Luka on any playoff team other than the Mavs and they’re at least making The Finals
For as great as Luka is offensively, his turnstile D is doing the Mavs no favors.
Yeah and I agreed with you. Not the Hawks and not the Mavs. Bullock and Maxi Kleber are the 2nd and 3rd best players on the Mavs. Luka plays with bums
Like CJ though, I think the Suns do a really good job of shutting down alternative scorers. They know they were never going to stop BI, so they tried to make everyone else's life hell (and it worked).
Okay you pick the one playoff team out of 16 with a worse roster than The Mavs lol. Sure. Not the Hawks.
I was using your rules!
No, he's still more interesting than anyone on the Suns.
I mean is Luka that interesting? Are you just referring to espn’s obsession with him since day 1 kinda like how they are with Zion? He seems like a whiny lil bitch
He's 2nd only to Giannis in the league. They surveyed every GM before the season and all them chose Luka or Giannis to have on their team if they could. Yes, even other NBA players recognize he is the an all time elite already.
Luka is a fraud on defense, he doesn't sniff the top 5.
Maybe you should be an NBA GM then, they all think he is top 2
No one is more interesting than Biyombo
Flair up cuz
Put your Lakers flair on mane.
No, made a few thousand on the over parlayed with Ayton's unders, easy money. Luka is literally more interesting than anyone on the Suns, if he isn't, then who on the Suns gets more coverage?
Who is Luka? Sorry new to basketball. Didn’t notice him on the court tofay
Luka is the European James Harden
Yeah but Luka is actually good
The teams booker was in the lottery with would have been playoff teams with harden
only, he actually has skill
35 ppg but no skill.
Raptors fans dont know basketball confirmed
i forgot acting was a great skill to have
omg, drawing fouls has no place in basketball11!!!!1111
there’s drawing fouls, and then there’s creating fouls with little to no contact
If you dont think harden was legitimately fouled then you're a noob
you’re joking right
i mean you have to be, you fucking said *noob*
Idk, maybe watch basketball
Brunson not looking anymore than a role player after Utah
It was the jazz having terrible defense that made him look so good, not his own skill
Add another one to the list of ok players the Jazz made look like All-Stars because of how terrible our defense is
Can everyone please stop saying "staying aggressive"
GGEZ Mavs! Hope you can do a bit better at home!
You know we can, see you later bb
Just think what the sun's would have done to the jazz.
Keep talking. I’m almost there
Stop, I can get only so erect.
OBJ’s girl just had a baby. Y’all chill out with the boobs comment. Them tities lactating
/homelander flies into the arena
Look, them thangs were thangin'. And I usually don't make that statement about titties
fine as hell
We need some milk 🥛
Didn't expect that lol.
GG mavs fans. no disrespect from me.
Gg. Hope y’all go far (if we don’t come back and beat you). Your team is nasty
GG, hope we get a more competitive game in dallas
I mean it was a competitive game and had me nervous, but it was ruined by annoying refs on both sides... then in the 4th the Mavs seemed to run out of gas while CP3 just went off. Idk how he's still this good... he seems like he actually improved from last season. Trust me I don't get it either.
Monty Williams also making me look like a dumbass for criticizing him for not leaving CP3 and Booker in the game more in the first half. Now I see how important having fresh legs in the 4th quarter can be...
Yeah I think that will be the story of the series, refs being complete shite to both sides and the Mavs being able to hang with you guys for 3 quarters or less, with the suns superior depth and roster construction really showing its head in the 4th. You’ve got a really great team, and sharpened a lot by the scrap in the first round. Wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if you went all the way.
Well if there ever is a year where we finally win one, it's gotta be this one. After missing the playoffs for a whole decade drafting bust after bust to finally get this young core built, and CP3 having this miraculous career renaissance...
...We just can't afford to come out of this era with still having no rings. I'm in my early 30s been waiting to see one of my teams(AZ Cards) win a chip since I became a Suns fan first at 13 years old. But that's nothing, there's Suns fans who have been waiting over 5 decades to see this team win one.
Those OGs are the ones I want the Suns to win a chip for... and any other team that's never won a chip as well. Nobody should go their whole life without ever getting to see their team win one.
I was happy as hell for you guys(and Marion) when you guys got it done.
Man I know the feeling, it’s such a cool thing seeing the pieces just come together and it’s much cooler to know that the OG fans finally get their moment. Especially for a team like Phoenix where the team is made through draft+ trades rather than free agency it really feels special when it clicks. I was already rooting for Phoenix if we lost because he’s a huge suns fan and because of our Nash connection, but remembering the relief I felt for our OG fans at our first one really drives that home.
Thanks bro. Obviously I hope we can win it, but I'm not counting my chickens before they hatch in this series let alone the playoffs as a whole. It's gonna be tough. Gotta go play in Dallas and I know how much Luka feeds off that home crowd. Definitely gonna be easier for him to not run out of gas in the 4th quarter like today when he's going to be sleeping in his own bed as well. I know how much a team going back home can change the tide of a series, look at how the Bucks turned things around last year against us. Never going to feel over-confident again after that.
Then even if we make it past you guys our reward is facing either GSW or Memphis, 2 teams that can match or surpass our depth. lol Fuck. Gonna be a tough road but that's what it takes, if we fall short then it is what it is. If the OGs can stay loyal for that long with no rings then I can too. Rings have never been the only/most important thing to me anyways, obviously if they were I'd have chose to be an obnoxious Lakers fan or something lol.
Cp brought up Theo Pinson
Thick red bone with big titties. Everyone’s type
I feel attacked
Huge tits and ass? Yeah I can see pro athletes being into that... type.
Still feels good being Super Bowl Champs! Go Rams !
Luka needs a #2, bad
They need to send him to the nuggets
How in the hell are the Mavs already over cap with that roster? They'll be fighting for whatever player is willing to sign for the MLE at the end of free agency.
I think even having a solid defending C with some offensive moves. Like no joke McGee would be better than Powell. And I think Maxi is more of a solid 4. Can stretch the floor and defend well.
When did we learn that we were all saying Bullock wrong i missed that
Damn y'all thirsty on OBJ's girl. Touch some grass FFS LMAO!
Oh my is OBJ pulling a Lou Will?
OBJ likes em natural
Body by Dow Chemical
odell hitting 10s damn
It only makes sense as OBJ is a 10 himself.
Jalen Brunson used up his whole tank during the first couple of games in the Jazz series
Who’s the big titty chick with OBJ?
Oh that is big tits Magee. She is a bounty hunter.
Is she related to javale?
Yeah that’s Javales stepdad.
Lola wood His baby mama
Oh no wonder them thangs look huge
Lord save us from these broken arms
OBJ has some good taste.
Book takin’ a nap 😂😂
I was saying since the early 3rd quarter that the Mavericks defense looks frighteningly bad and that it's concerning that it was competitive
Suns did theit thing, but wow they don't look like world beaters.
Was only competitive because they shot 50% from three and hitting shots slowed the game down and so did the fouls. The fouls were still being called but if you're not making shots that doesn't matter.
Odell got a baddie
That Mavs are a good team, but the Suns are both a better team and a terrible matchup for them.
Damn that girl with Odell
Big fake tetas plus mommy milkers, whew
They put her on the suns insta
People have weird wives then what’s ours lol
Who's shawty with the dumper walking behind OBJ?
damn OBJs girl is stacked
World champ OBJ right there! LETS GO RAMS
So we getting Warriors/Grizz as the only watchable series n the semis?
Doncic's a bad, bad, man...
The rest of this team though... 😬
Pel's gave The Suns a good scare, I can't help but think they're better than The Mavs 🤷♂️
Idk doncic is a bit of a sieve on defense
I can't disagree with that I guess 😆
OBJ's lady has some tig ol bitties
camera man knew what was up
Giving the people what they want
director was like: "get that angle and stay on it no matter what!"
Also gotta learn to play some defense on a championship team he’s a clear liability on that end
He’s using all his effort being the only person keeping us in the game score wise. Hard for be all defense first team, and still be the best offensive player on the court
Your absolutely right there but his lack of speed on the perimeter gets exposed at times 37 year old CP3 shouldn’t have been able to blow by him multiple times with ease the way he did
It took Jordan 7 years to win a ring. Sometimes it takes time. We are much better than last year
Those bootays don't look right.
Looked like memory foam lmao
GG Dallas, let's do it all over again in Texas.
Luka Cousins got in trouble with the parents and had to go to bed for yell crying so late at night
Lmao I can’t even begin to parse what you meant by this
Sorry he's drunk.
Fuck Odell Beckham piece of human waste
Mavs have the best player but The suns have 2 to 6 best players. After that biyombo and cam johnson were better than the mavs starter..
luka needs some help
True, no surprises so far for me, even as a mavs fan I never thought we had a chance.
Yeah. I wanna believe. But if mavs cannot shoot 50% from three for a whole game they cannot win. Get Luka a legit second and a solid defensive center and mavs are so much better.
As a Mavs fan I hate to say it but I was thinking when CP3 hangs up the boots' Luka would slot in there real nice.
Aren't you guys already over the cap going into next season?
