What’s the buzz on Twitter?
When Dallas goes small tonight w/o Powell and puts more pressure on Paul/Booker, this is the Ayton the Suns need.
He actively seeks out screens and then takes two confident dribbles to get within hook shot range.
Short roll has been there all series. Should be again tonight. pic.twitter.com/TeHATyXVnv – 4:48 PM
Luka Doncic on Mavs’ film session after Game 5 blowout: “You have to watch when you do good stuff — and when you do bad stuff. I think the bad stuff is even more important. We watched mostly the bad part because it was mostly bad parts. … In the playoffs it’s how you respond.” – 12:37 PM
Luka Doncic on following:
Devin Booker’s “Luka Special” line: “Don’t really care.”
Finishing 5th in MVP voting: “I want to win a championship.”
His “everybody acts tough when they up” after Game 5: “When you’re up, everybody is trying to talk.” #Mavs #Suns #NBAPlayoffs2022 pic.twitter.com/FQ9p37nbeO – 12:30 PM
Writing this before tonight’s game in Dallas. I clearly missed on early Booker projections. Not that I didn’t like him. I just didn’t ever consider him much. Maybe it was the franchise he was on. Regardless, he deserved better for me. I think he’s incredible. A killer on court. – 9:05 AM
You know you excuse makers who try to discredit other players’ championships to uplift your team/favorite players when they lose: when you’re made of championship stuff, you get it done. Series far from over but see Milwaukee minus Middleton and Phoenix w/o Booker – 9:42 PM
Mavericks field goal percentages on passes by Luka Doncic this series:
Game 1: 47.6% (10/21)
Game 2: 42.1% (8/19)
Game 3: 52.9% (9/17)
Game 4: 60% (12/20)
Game 5: 25% (3/12)
That’s via @SecondSpectrum. Low attempts and low percentage in Game 5 not a good formula for success. – 3:45 PM
