Steve Popper @StevePopper
The job Caruso is doing guarding Randle reminds me of when Brad Stevens put Marcus Smart on Porzingis during his Knicks days — giving up size but making it impossible for them to make a move. – 8:49 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
The Clippers “play the right way” and, hey, it worked — on the Kawhi-less Clippers vs. the Luka-less Mavs:

Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
Suns scored 48 points in the opening quarter tonight, the team’s first 40+ point quarter of the season. It’s the most in a quarter since scoring 48 in the 3rd quarter at Dallas on 1/28/20 and the second-most first quarter points in franchise history (50 on 11/10/90 vs. Denver). – 8:41 PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Ankle issues continue to plague Bones Hyland. He tweaked his left ankle in Dallas last week. Looks like tweaked an ankle again tonight. Asked to be taken out of the game late in the first quarter. – 8:36 PM

Detroit Pistons PR @Pistons_PR
Cade Cunningham is the youngest player (20 yrs, 57 days) in Pistons history and 8th-youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double (La. Ball, M. Fultz, L. Doncic, L. Ball, L. James, D. Smith Jr., L. Odom). #Pistons

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Porzingis looked a lot different Sunday than the last time he played at Staples Center. Plus injuries and a TikTok note in this edition of Mavericks briefs.

Successful Sunday in DTLA.

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Maxi Kleber (5 points, 4 rebounds, 1 block, 20 mins) in his return from missing 9 games with an oblique injury: “Obviously my conditioning’s not there, my rhythm’s not there, but I feel fine right now, so that’s most important.” – 7:45 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Jalen Brunson on the Clippers’ challenge that turned his and-1 layup into an offensive foul in the last minute:
“I don’t even know. I thought I didn’t really touch him, but clearly they didn’t see that, so onto the next one.” – 7:43 PM

Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Reported here from a couple days ago in story about Fournier’s fourth quarters:
Per source, Thibodeau wanted to bring back Reggie Bullock in free agency.

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
lol, Reggie reflecting on the unceasing encouragement he got from the Clippers coaches to keep shooting last season, even in times of struggle, says he used to look at Terance Mann and say, “Yo, Terance, our coaches are crazy.” – 7:14 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
After Jordan @swishcultures_ asked Reggie Jackson about playing free in summers prior to joining Clips, Jackson shouted out pretty much all of last year’s assistant coaches: Larry Drew, Jeremy Castleberry, Chauncey Billups, Roy Rogers, Dahntay Jones, Kenny Atkinson – 7:14 PM

Reggie Jackson on Paul George’s big minutes this season, among his other contributions: “I know dude has to be tired, I’m sure he hasn’t told youall that.” – 7:11 PM

Before Ivica Zubac left the interview room, Reggie had a *something* to eat wrapped in paper with him, and asked the big man if he wanted “his usual.” Zu declined what Reggie described as his “treat,” his “specialty” … “you can ask him about it.” – 7:04 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Five months ago, Kristaps Porzingis was a little-used decoy in playoffs vs. Clippers.
Post-ups were a major no under Carlisle.
Today, KP was the Mavs’ go-to guy in clutch time, running his offense through the post.
KP, with a smile, afterward: “Yeah, what a contrast, right?” – 6:59 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Ivica Zubac on finishing big vs. the big Mavs: “They’re a big team … gotta go up, you gotta be decisive. You gotta go for a dunk every time.” – 6:58 PM

Tonight’s center watch!
Zubac: (+5 in 26:49)

3-point shooting today at Staples Center:
Mavericks: 6-of-30, 20% (all 3 are season lows)
Just George/Jackson/Kennard: 10-of-23, 43.5% – 6:38 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Most important stretch of tonight’s game was probably between 10- and 5-minute marks of third quarter.
Mavs went from leading for the last time to trailing by 10 after a 15-4 Clippers run.
George and Jackson scored all 15 points for LA, while Mavericks missed 6 of 8 shots. – 6:31 PM

Mavs coach Jason Kidd said Luka Doncic will practice tomorrow in hopes to play on Tuesday against the Clippers – 6:16 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Lue said that he hasn’t had a chance to talk to Batum yet. Was pleased with Coffey’s performance… Clippers outscored Mavericks by 21 points in Coffey’s 25:14 (and Mavericks outscored Clippers by 15 points when Coffey was off the floor.) – 6:16 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Ty Lue on Batum’s status: “Haven’t had a chance to talk to Nico yet…” – 6:14 PM

Clippers win first regular season rematch against Mavericks 97-91.
It’s LA’s second win already scoring under 100 points… they had one such win all of last season.
These two teams return here at the arena currently known as Staples Center Tuesday night. – 5:57 PM

Clippers 97, Mavericks 91. Kristaps Porzingis and Jalen Brunson both very good. Tough call on the offensive foul on Brunson. But the Mavericks simply have trouble scoring without Luka Doncic on the floor. – 5:56 PM

Reggie Jackson puts away the Mavs with some sauce. pic.twitter.com/VCMU3asKir5:53 PM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Reggie Jackson circus shot puts Clippers up 96-89 with 29 seconds left. Another good road effort is going to go unrewarded for the Mavericks. But they are learning how to play without Luka–something they hopefully won’t have to do much longer. – 5:51 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Reggie Jackson looked like a shell of himself in the Southwest Division cities.
He brought some swag to crunch time, likely putting game away with the Big Government stimulus scoop
LA up 96-89 and Dallas out of timeouts with 29 seconds left. – 5:51 PM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Ruling overturned. Clippers still lead 94-89. With the ball. 52.2 seconds left. – 5:49 PM

PG has the Clippers’ last six points — punctuating that one with a mean-happy mug for folks in the front row.
Clips 94, Mavs 91 | 52 seconds to go – 5:46 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Tyronn Lue is challenging and-one by Brunson against Terance Mann with 52.2 seconds left. – 5:46 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Porzingis was stuck on 19 points for too long, foul trouble or no foul trouble. Six quick points by him, though, pull Mavs within 5 with a minute left. – 5:46 PM

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle) questionable
Vit Krejci, Theo Maledon, Tre Mann, Paul Watson Jr are OUT vs Hawks – 5:45 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Outstanding exection ATO by Mavericks, with Brunson finding Porzingis for a dunk in ten seconds.
Lue uses a timeout with LA holding a 92-89 lead now with 1:19 left.
Both teams with no fouls to give and a timeout left. – 5:45 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers will LIVE with Kristaps Porzingis post ups.
KP got one, but couldn’t finish the next time down. George saw an opportunity after the latest miss and dunked it four seconds later.
PG dunks AND free throws in the same game. That’s the true unicorn.
LA up 92-87, 1:29 left – 5:43 PM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Mavericks fought back to within three, but two PG free throws make it 90-85 with 2:30 left. – 5:41 PM

Paul George shooting first free throws since Tuesday – 5:41 PM

Los Angeles Clippers @LAClippers
Back-to-back for @Reggie Jackson!

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Mavericks need a momentum jolt. There’s 4:52 left and the Clippers lead 87-75. Mavericks simply have had trouble scoring with Luka Doncic out. They got 104 and 98 against the Suns and won’t get close to 100 today without a major push. – 5:33 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers on a 9-0 run to take their largest lead of the game at 87-75.
Kidd calls timeout with 4:52 left. As raggedy as LA’s offense is, their defense has been outstanding whenever Ja Morant and Steph Curry aren’t involved. – 5:32 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Porzingis’ elbows and TMann’s face are like exactly the same height. – 5:29 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Mavericks cut 7 points off of 10-point Clippers lead prior to George corner 3. Terance Mann will be at FT line following a George steal, with LA up 81-75, 6:49 left in 4th quarter.
Clippers haven’t played an OT game since Bubble Lyfe – 5:26 PM

Dallas Mavericks @dallasmavs
BACK-TO-BACK BOBAN BUCKETS 💪 pic.twitter.com/wJcPI6Xtxa5:25 PM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Boban is really tough to handle on offense. He’s a little tough to watch on defense at times. Mavericks doing a good job of helping him. But down 78-70 early in the fourth, it’s not a good time to be trading baskets. – 5:21 PM

Los Angeles Clippers @LAClippers
Quite a third quarter showing for @Paul George.
📺 @BallySportWest | #ClipperNation pic.twitter.com/Pdi83DtclU5:21 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Bledsoe finally scored, torching Boban on a drive that probably doesn’t happen if Zubac or Hartenstein are in.
Next possession down, Ibaka finally gets one outside the paint.
LA just needs to break even while Mavericks feed Boban in the post repeatedly – 5:20 PM

Eric Pincus @EricPincus
I’m always available for Boban Marjanovic minutes – 5:20 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Boban got a rousing applause from Clippers fans when he checked in — and after both his baskets so far.
His presence transcends rivalries and geography and probably even, like, international political conflict. – 5:19 PM

“That’s SO NICE!” pic.twitter.com/szI6aOfsmN5:16 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers made only one shot in last 4:03 of the third quarter, but Kennard finding Mann for a drive and kick 3 (it’s usually the other way around) was huge with George resting last 90 seconds.
LA up 71-62 in what has truly been a slobberknocker. – 5:15 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Mavs’ best run of the first half came when Paul George checked out. (Duh, surprise, surprise, etc.)
Let’s see if they capitalize again. – 5:12 PM

Update – Frank Ntilikina out remainder of today’s Mavs at Clippers game with a right calf injury. Clippers lead Mavs 66-60 with 4:20 left 3Q on BSSW – 5:06 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers got the lead to 10 before a Reggie Jackson bad pass was sandwiched in between back-to-back Mavericks field goals.
Lue calls timeout, presumably to get some reserves in. LA up 66-60 with 4:20 left in third quarter.
Of note: Mavs survived the Porzingis foul trouble. – 5:06 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
A nice sequence from Willie Cauley-Stein to hit a (very, very uncontested) jumper and then get a steal on the other end that led to a KP dunk.
Maybe he checked Twitter at halftime… – 5:05 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Reggie Jackson is back on schedule with his shot after a forgettable night in New Orleans, has now made multiple 3s in 16 of 17 games.
Jason Kidd calls timeout with LA taking a 58-52 lead. Clips started tonight well only to have a completely empty final 3.5 minutes of 1stQ – 4:58 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Reggie Jackson was 0-4 in the first quarter — he’s 3 for 3 (all from 3) since. – 4:58 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Hey @BallySportWest, @Los Angeles Clippers, someone — can we get Brandon Boston Jr. mic’d up on the sideline? – 4:55 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Couple of bad notes for the Mavs to start the second half:
Frank Ntilikina (calf) will not return today.
KP picked up his fourth foul in the first minute, though he’s staying in for now. – 4:54 PM

Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Mavs say that Frank Ntilikina will not return because of a right calf injury – 4:54 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
If you’re following along with the Mavs and Clips: Frank Ntilikina out (right calf injury) – 4:54 PM

Frank Ntilikina will not return (right calf injury) to today’s game. – 4:53 PM

Frank Ntilikina is out for remainder of game with a calf injury. – 4:53 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Kristaps Porzingis has four fouls with 11:47 left in third quarter.
Paul George hits his first 3 of the game on next possession. He is starting defensive possessions on Porzingis and has three fouls to start second half as well. – 4:52 PM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Four fouls on Porzingis. Feels significant with most of two quarters left. – 4:51 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Paul George good: THE JAM (*Ralph voice*)
Paul George not good: 54 field goal attempts, ZERO free throw attempts in last ten quarters. – 4:50 PM

It’s a matinee game alright.
Mavericks up 47-46, winning the critical rebounding and turnover battles needed to win a game like this.

But Kristaps Porzingis (15 pts, 8 reb, including 4 on offense, 1 ast, 1 block) is a big reason Mavs still lead 47-46. – 4:37 PM

Yes, the offense remains in hell for the Clippers.
LA stuck on 30 points on 34 shots. The weird turnovers are here. If they were playing a good offensive team, this would be a blowout already.
Still might get there, which is why Lue called an angry timeout with Mavs up 39-30 – 4:25 PM

In last season’s 1st-round series vs. Clippers, Kristaps “Decoy” Porzingis attempted 13, 12, 6 and 12 shots in the 4 games in Staples Center. His scoring high was 20 points in Game 2 of the series.
Today he is 5-of-10 and has 13 points in 13 minutes of court time. Decoy no more. – 4:19 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
FWIW … just noticed that Ty Lue is back to coaching in a mask, as he was in the postseason.

Mavericks lead 28-26 with 7:44 left in first half – 4:16 PM

Some pretty salty defense in the Mavs-Clippers game right now. Blocks by Ntilikina, Porzingis then by Hartenstein on the other end. Mavericks up 28-26. – 4:15 PM

It’s going to be a 3-center rotation for the Clippers today.
Last time Lue did that was two weeks ago against Hornets and Trail Blazers.
Ibaka had a better second half stint than first half vs Hornets. But against Trail Blazers, Hartenstein got all of the second half minutes. – 2:54 PM
