I can’t understand how between weight work, practices and playing heavy minutes every game how Luca can look fatter and slower as the season conclude. My son was an elite hammer thrower in college and also did discus and shot and he had to eat massive amounts of food just to maintain his weight.

I’m guessing Luka’s personal fitness level isn’t all that high despite what gets claimed publicly. It might be a thing where he’s not doing the right kind of weight work and it might also be a deal where he needs to get a cardio level that he can be at high level every night.

But who knows? I don’t….

Eh, that goes how it goes. Clippers should win since they haven’t played since Saturday. Even more so since the Lakers will be on a SEGABABA and the game went to OT last night in SLC.

Yeah. They also scored 44 points in the 2nd qtr, they scored 48 total in the 2nd half. Emotionally it might be the Fox missed dunk, but that was with like 19 mins to go in the game or whatever. I don’t think it would have been the same thing if they just had made their shots. It might have been as simple as just running out of gas.

The Kings just missed shots and never could match that energy. It was a rest disadvantage SEGABABA, Dallas got away with a lot of contact (surprised Brown’s challenge actually went the Kings way), and it was a number of different things (Wood going off) that got Dallas this win.

That said, it wouldn’t especially shock me if the Mavs win these next 2 games and make the playin since it’s a Chicago team they play on Fri night who have nothing left to play for (they are the 10th seed) and San Antonio Sunday afternoon.

The missed dunk led to Luka missing a bunny shot on the next possession. Net zero.

Nonetheless two points is two points in a balanced league. It was not the turning point. It didn’t help.

It never helps to miss a dunk but it usually doesn’t really energize the other team. Dallas isn’t all that good and the Kings showed them their ass in that 2nd qtr.

Unfortunately, they just clanked alot of shots in the 2nd half. I don’t really agree with how they went after this game but as long as everyone is healthy, I don’t really care.

It is what it is. Not an impactful or meaningful loss IMO.

And Eddie, the Kings were up several times early in the 4th qtr. I just looked up Fox’s missed dunk (that was in the first minute of the 3rd qtr). I don’t think that impacts the game.

They were up 107-106 with 6:55 to go. I don’t think it was much more or less than just the missing shots. Not a salaciously fun thing to complain about, of course, but that’s just what it seems like to me.

Benjamin Franklin catching lightning in a bottle. 19 points in the tail end of the 4th quarter.

I noticed Luka sort of limping a bit and thought he might be laying a trap faking it a bit, but I think his knee is sore from connecting with Malik earlier in the game.

Even then, felt like there were so many bad non-calls. Kings were getting hacked around like crazy and no calls. I also feel like whenever a couple players go cold, the entire team just goes cold. It’s weird. This team is very streaky.

The Mavs got very physical, pushing grabbing, hacking. In the locker room now, despite Hardaway coming over and giving Fox a hug after the game, Dearon is pissed. Hardaway was fouling him on each possession, including the double dribble call which was a foul against Fox.

monk is an iq less ball player that giveth more than taketh and helped give away this one. guy needs to be out of here this summer

over the course of the season he is on the wrong side of the ledger of helping/hurting. he is def a bottom tier first guard off the bench, and his relationship with fox doesn’t mend things
