What’s the buzz on Twitter?
It was not Luka’s best shooting night (He left plenty of pts out there w/11-26 FG & 9-14 FT). But this was the best playoff game of the 21 he’s played in his career. He scored (with much less settling). He rebounded. He assisted. He guarded (4 steals). Can’t ask for more. – 2:59 AM
Luka Doncic on his response to Game 5 criticism: “I like when people trash talk to me. It gets me going.”
Maybe a heads up for Devin Booker on Sunday.
On what might’ve been the real ‘Luka Special’: Doncic does it all in Mavs’ Game 6 win overs Suns dallasnews.com/sports/maveric… – 2:23 AM
That was a most extraordinary performance. I dare say one if the best defensive games I’ve ever seen the Mavericks play. 16 steals. 4 each from Luka and Ntilikina of the 22 forced TO. PHX season low 86 pts (2nd time w/season low in series, and playoff low 39.7% FG – 1:23 AM
I know it’s a regular season award. But if the Mavs toss the Suns from the playoffs. Monty Williams should hand Jason Kidd the Coach of the Year trophy. He might take Luka and a bunch of 2nd rounders to the playoffs. One of the best coaching performances in years. – 11:56 PM
Luka Doncic, who appeared to be dealing with some type of quad issue, just walked to the locker room with Mavs athletic trainer Dionne Calhoun. If it were a serious concern, director of player health and performance Casey Smith probably would have joined Doncic. – 10:15 PM
Luka after shootaround: “It’s actually funny because I think they’re letting me go to the stepback, so it feels easy. Normally when I do the stepback, it’s hard. I put more, like, effort in, so I got to go back to that…I’ve got to get down with my legs.”

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
