Dennis Smith Jr. 21 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (1/20/2018)

I’m really feeling this connection between Dennis Smith Jr. and Dirk Nowitzki. Young and old. Black and white. Short and tall. An unlikely pairing, no doubt, but a fruitful one. Stockton and Malone is an easy comparison to make, but those two had their whole careers to maximize their partnership, to learn each other’s curves…

Dennis Smith Jr. 25 Points Full Highlights (1/16/2018)

Is it just my overactive imagination, or has Dennis Smith Jr. been really clutch this year? Not so much in terms of actual game-winning buzzer-beater mob-him-at-center-court shots, but in terms of scoring in bunches in the fourth quarter. There is definitely some place where can I look up stats like that and confirm my suspicions,…

Dennis Smith Jr. 23 Points Full Highlights (1/13/2018)

Can’t we just call him “Dennis Smith”? I hate this “Jr.” thing. Unlike with someone like Kelly Oubre or Larry Nance, I don’t think I’ve ever heard him referred to without that extra title. And unlike Nance, his dad wasn’t in the NBA so there’s no chance of confusion. It’s not a big deal, but…

Dennis Smith Jr. 20 Points Full Highlights (1/9/2018)

The Mavericks may be looking better than they did at the beginning of the season, but they’re still not going to make any noise in the playoffs this season. It’s cool to get some wins, you know, keep team morale high or whatever (if Oregon Trail taught me one thing it’s that morale doesn’t actually…

Dennis Smith Jr. Triple Double 21 Pts/10 Asts/10 Rebs Full Highlights (12/29/2017)

I wouldn’t be surprised if the NBA takes away this triple-double after further review. Dennis Smith Jr.’s 10th rebound, shown at 2:30, is basically him hitting it with his hands, with one of his teammates actually picking it up. It didn’t look like he was trying to bat the ball in a direction, and even…

Dennis Smith Jr. 20 Points Full Highlights (12/4/2017)

I may have to revisit my opinion of the Mavericks. For reference, my previous and current opinion of them is that they’re not a very good team and they will end up with a high selection in the draft because of it. Since they have won five of their last eight games and looked pretty…

Dennis Smith Jr. 27 Points Full Highlights (11/14/2017)

This one caught me off guard. I was looking at the boxscore for this one with about a minute remaining and saw Dennis Smith Jr. had 20. A good game for him, but not anything amazing, so I began snack preparations for the night ahead. Imagine my surprise when I returned from my microwave to…

Dennis Smith Jr. 21 Points/7 Assists Full Highlights (11/11/2017)

My vibe receptors can be overly sensitive sometimes. On occasion I will receive false or erroneous vibes. If I stand too close to my microwave while it’s cooking me a Hot Pocket, for example, any NBA player I see will give me Matt Carroll vibes. The nuclear-energy research facility a few blocks away gives me…

Dennis Smith Jr. 22 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (11/7/2017)

New strategy for the Mavericks: run that lob play between Wes Matthews and Dennis Smith Jr. every time down the court for the whole game. It worked so well on the first possession of the season, as well as the first possession of this game, that I don’t see why they wouldn’t just do it…
