Luka Doncic 24 Points Full Highlights (11/17/2018)

I was previously a critic of how ragged-looking Luka Doncic was earlier in the season, and I don’t think that was unfair. He looked like he just woke up in the grittiest Ljubljana alleyway with his pockets pilfered and a nasty hangover. But now I think he’s gone a bit too far in the other…

J.J. Barea 21 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (11/10/2018)

J.J. Barea, at the ripe old age of 33, had the best season of his career last year, and I don’t feel like anyone really noticed. More points per game than ever, more assists per game than ever. And if you’re one of those sweaty dorks who disdains boxscore stats, he also had more winshares…

Luka Doncic 22 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (11/10/2018)

The main difference between the Luka Doncic from this game and the Luka Doncic from previous games: he was getting assists by finding three-point shooters. That’s, like, the easiest way to get assists in the NBA, but he’s been stubbornly trying to get people layups and stuff. That’s great when you can do it, but…

Luka Doncic 24 Points Full Highlights (11/7/2018)

I’m feeling a Luke Doncic floater-ilation coming at the end of the season. No guarantees, because that would be harder than my usual compilation (three-pointers and dunks are easier to quantify than what exactly a floater is), but it would be probably the sickest thing ever. Sicker than the Dirk fadeaway-ilations I made. Those got…

Wesley Matthews 22 Points Full Highlights (11/6/2018)

It’s interesting that Wes Matthews is having, by far, the highest-scoring season of his Mavericks tenure while also shooting at the best efficiency of that same tenure. It’s inarguable that this is the best Matthews has played, from a raw stats perspective, since his Blazers days. Usually when I say “inarguable”, I’m being facetious or…

Luka Doncic 23 Points Full Highlights (11/6/2018)

The scoring is already here for Luka Doncic. Not what all the haters were expecting, him averaging 20 (if you haven’t noticed I’m obsessed with the concept of people averaging 20), but there it is. But where’s the assisting? Where’s the passing wizardry? We get a few good dimes a game, but he’s got almost…

Dorian Finney-Smith Career High 19 Points Full Highlights (11/2/2018)

There doesn’t seem to be much hope around the league that Dorian Finney-Smith will ever be anything more than he is right now: an athletic small forward who doesn’t do a whole lot on the court or fill that stat sheet. I think defense is his calling card (plus the hustle that goes along with…

Dennis Smith Jr. 23 Points Full Highlights (11/2/2018)

I’m just noticing a heretofore un-noticed hitch in Dennis Smith Jr.’s free throw shooting motion. It’s almost like Chuck Hayes, obviously not as bad, but he sort of pauses and turns his wrist a little bit right before he lets it go. Has he always done this? Am I just being dumb for not realizing…

Luka Doncic 18 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (11/2/2018)

I was promised Luka Doncic to Dirk Nowitzki alley-oops. Right at the beginning of the season, Mark Cuban went on TV and said in front of everyone “At least once in every Mavericks game this season, Luka Doncic will throw the ball high into the air towards the basket but instead of trying to make…

Luka Doncic 31 Points Full Highlights (10/29/2018)

Luke Doncic looking fresh! His previous unshaven and disheveled appearance combined with his ever-so-slight tubbiness had him looking more like a basement-dwelling NBA-YouTube-commenting loser than an actual NBA player. Is “fresh” even still a term people use anymore? If not, I apologize for not knowing the latest lingo. At least be glad that I didn’t…
