All fantastic. But all pale to the 2 TOs. If Luka is going to handle the ball that much, & take care of the ball that well (And he’s been much improved, 2.49 Ast/TO), there won’t be much fretting over Mavs offense – 12:52 AM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
If you missed the telecast tonight, @Brian Scalabrine and I are starting a grass-roots movement to change NBA leaders, like most sports, from averages to totals, such as…
NBA – MOST POINTS
JAYSON TATUM 420
Luka Doncic 412
Kevin Durant 397
Steph Curry 366 – 12:25 AM

Up now free and unlocked at @RoseGardenReprt: A road trip the Blazers should feel very good about ended on a down note with a Spencer Dinwiddie three-point barrage rosegardenreport.com/p/mavericks-11…11:56 PM
Dallas Mavericks PR @MavsPR
Spencer Dinwiddie recorded 20 points (6-8 3FG), 7 rebounds and 6 assists in tonight’s win.
Dinwiddie has 20+ points in 7 of the Mavs’ 12 games this season, already matching his total from his time with Dallas last season.
This was also his first game with 20p-5r-5a with Dallas. pic.twitter.com/HCymhCEwff11:49 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
I asked Doncic about his recent technical fouls. He said he is confident that his most recent two technicals will get rescended. He said he spoke to GM Nico Harrison after the game and asked Harrison to reach out to the league to protest tonight’s technical and the 1 at Wash. – 11:45 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
What else to say about Luka. He’s got the heart of a lion. – 11:38 PM
Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
The Law of Mavs-Blazers strikes again. Every year, they play the best League Pass games, going back more than a decade. – 11:38 PM

Another triple-double in the books 😤

Mavs open another 5 game homestand with a win! 117-112 over Portland. Mavs rise to the occasion against the Blazers who are great on the road, great in the clutch, and great defensively in the 4th. Mavs had a late 14-3 run, led by 3 straight Dinwiddie 3s. Mavs now 6-1 at home. – 11:26 PM

Blazers lose in Dallas, Jazz lose in Washington, so the Celtics now have the second best record in the NBA.
1. Milwaukee 10-2
2. BOSTON 10-3

Luka Doncic on MVP chants at the free throw line to finish his latest 40-point triple-double: “I was just hoping I don’t miss for them.” – 10:58 PM
Tom Westerholm @Tom_NBA
Per Synergy, Jayson Tatum is 2nd in points per possession among the NBA’s ultra high-usage players (25 or more possessions per game, higher than Doncic/Giannis/Shai/Booker etc.). Only player ahead of him, predictably, is Steph. – 10:58 PM

Luka falls down when the Blazers are trying to foul and they DO NOT call it… – 10:52 PM
Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46
Spencer Dinwiddie decided to win that game for the Mavericks. Impressive presence at the crunch time. #MFFL10:50 PM
Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Luka Doncic has the fourth 40-point triple-double of his career. That ranks sixth in NBA history, per @EliasSports.
His 49 triple-doubles overall ranks 10th in NBA history. – 10:49 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Mavs lead 115-108 now with 54.1 remaining. Blazers struggling to score the past few minutes. – 10:48 PM
Dallas Mavericks @dallasmavs
SPENCE IS THAT DUDE – 10:47 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Grant draws the double team, leaving Dame for a deep three… and it’s good. Dinwiddie gets it right back though. 106 all, 2:15 to play – 10:46 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Jerami Grant ties the game at the free throw line with 4 minutes to play – 10:43 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
37 points for Grant. His previous season high was 30.
Two nights after Kyle Kuzma lit up Dallas for a season-high 34. – 10:43 PM

Wood fouls out with 4:20 left and Dallas leading 101-98. – 10:42 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Dallas just went on a little run. Lead 101-98. 4:46 remaining. – 10:38 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Alley-oop from Lillard to Simons. Blazers up 98-92 at Dallas. Such a strong performance all things considered. – 10:35 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
5th foul on Wood in just 22 minutes of court time. Particularly tough because he’s the Mavs’ second-leading scorer, with 19 points. Hardaway is third with 11. Where is the offense going to come from until Doncic returns? – 10:27 PM
Kendrick Perkins @KendrickPerkins
Dame, Simons and Grant are one of the most underrated Trios in the League. These Trailblazers are DANGEROUS!!!! Carry the hell on… – 10:24 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Blazers 88, Mavs 85: end of third quarter. 33 points, 5 rebounds for @Jerami Grant. 21 points, 11 assists, 5 rebounds for @Damian Lillard. 18 points, 5 rebounds for @Anfernee Simons. One quarter between a very good trip and an absolutely great trip. – 10:21 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Mavericks get another tech, this one on Josh Green, and the Blazers are going to go into the fourth quarter with an 88-85 head start. – 10:20 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
Dame and Luka taking turns grifting. Two of the best in the game at it. – 10:20 PM

Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Grant thus far: 30 points on 11-of-17 shooting. Simons has 18 and Lillard 14. Blazers lead 78-76 late third. – 10:13 PM
Jason Quick @jwquick
Jerami Grant has been soooooo good for the Blazers this season. On both ends. – 10:08 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
The Blazers gave up 35 points in the first quarter but just 36 since and we have 4:20 remaining in the third. Blazers lead 78-71. – 10:07 PM
Dallas Mavericks PR @MavsPR
Luka Dončić recorded his 20th career 20p-5r-5a half, the most since he entered the league in 2018-19.
19 of his 20 instances have come since 2019-20, placing him well ahead of Nikola Jokić (10) and James Harden (10) for most 20p-5r-5a halves since the start of that season. pic.twitter.com/ekY6vuxbPU10:00 PM

Jerami Grant with 27 points in 23 minutes on a cool 10-of-15 from the field and 4-of-6 from three. – 9:59 PM

Wild 1st half as Mavs lead POR 59-57. POR scores 1st 7 to make Kidd take a TO 2:00 in. Mavs wake up, go on 15-2 run to end 1st (Wood 10 of those pts) build lead to 16 before POR goes on 24-6 run inc 13 to grab lead, Mavs then rally. Luka 22-6-6. 2nd half soon @971TheFreak9:42 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Mavs 59, Blazers 57: halftime. 20 points, 4 rebounds for @Jerami Grant. 12 points, 7 assists, 2 rebounds for @Damian Lillard. 11 points, 3 rebounds for @Anfernee Simons. – 9:37 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Mavs lead 59-57 at halftime, but at one point in the second quarter they led by 16.
Doncic has 22 points. Doesn’t look tired, but he is pissed, if I’m allowed to tweet that. – 9:36 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
Portland has to feel pretty good only being down two at the half. They haven’t played well at all. – 9:36 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Seldom-seen five-point possession (tech, take foul, 3-pointer) puts Portland ahead 57-55. Mavs counter with two Luka FTs. – 9:34 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Blazers just took the lead 57-55 on a three from Grant. Huge turnaround in the 2nd quarter. – 9:34 PM
Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Luka Doncic got called for a take/tech one-two punch. It’s his fourth technical of the season. – 9:33 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Another tech for Doncic, who has had a flurry of them of late. Fifth of the season, now tied with Draymond Green for most in the NBA. pic.twitter.com/ELtMpyvwT19:32 PM

The Pelicans almost escaped the first quarter without a turnover. Garuba stripping Valanciunas with 11.1 seconds left accounts for the only miscue.
New Orleans suffered 17 turnovers against the Trail Blazers two nights ago. – 9:07 PM

Chauncey Billups calls Doncic the “toughest cover in the league.” His reasoning, he says, is that some great players are great ballhandlers, some are great scorers, some are dominant in the post. Doncic is all three. – 7:08 PM
