What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Kleber extending Ayton on the perimeter. Another 3. is now 5-of-6.
#Suns up 13, though, as Payne and Ayton answer on other end. – 10:45 PM

Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
Like look at Draymond after seeing Crowder getting a Flagrant One for kicking Doncic in the sweet spot… pic.twitter.com/BbJhiLvCNC10:44 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Flagrant foul 1 on Crowder. Don’t think it lessens the sting for Doncic. – 10:43 PM

Phoenix Suns @Suns
Emotion level: 99 pic.twitter.com/LlZ5fgMfZB10:43 PM

Dave McMenamin @mcten
After reviewing Jae Crowder’s kicking motion on his jump shot that made contact with Luka Doncic’s groin, the refs have assessed Crowder with a Flagrant 1 foul. – 10:43 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Flagrant-1 on Jae Crowder. Luka Doncic could’ve told refs that himself. – 10:43 PM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Interesting that Jae Crowder’s offensive foul to the lower midsection of Luka Doncic is being reviewed for possible flagrant content. But they aren’t showing the video in-arena, like most places do. Foul upgraded to flagrant-1. – 10:42 PM

Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
They haven’t shown a replay in the building, which alludes to apparent guilt for Jae Crowder hitting Luka in a sensitive place.
Flagrant 1 – 10:42 PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
if Jae isnt tossed, Draymond is going to tweet an emoji i just dont know which one. – 10:42 PM

Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
What does #arrestDraymond twitter think about that Crowder play? – 10:42 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
“Natural leg motion” — Chris Paul10:42 PM

Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
Oh that image of Luka is going to be everywhere – 10:42 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Ow. Crowder’s right leg catches Doncic between his. Play is being reviewed. – 10:42 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Luka just getting up after Crowder called for offensive foul.
Play under review as Crowder extended his leg on the shot and caught Doncic in that area.
#NBAPlayoffs #NBAPlayoffs2022 #Suns10:42 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Well, that’s a flagrant on Jae. – 10:42 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Looks like Crowder got all ball there – 10:41 PM

Michael Dugat @mdug
Ouch. I’m so sorry, Luka – 10:41 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Definite flagrant 1 on Jae 😂😂 – 10:41 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
That’s a Draymond flagrant on Jae Crowder there. – 10:41 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Luka Doncic is down and holding his groin. Couldn’t see what happened, but Jae Crowder got hit with an offensive foul and they’re reviewing to see if it was flagrant – 10:41 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Crowder 3.
Now 4-of-4 (3-of-3 from 3) 10 points.
Last series: 31.4% FG (3-of-26 from 3). #NBAPlayoffs2022 #NBAPlayoffs #Suns #Mavs10:40 PM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Jalen Brunson missed tough drive to the rim, Jae Crowder nailed a triple at the other end. And instead of being down six, the Mavericks fell behind by 11 and now it’s 47-34. – 10:40 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Jalen Brunson: 3 points (1-6 FG) and 3 fouls in 11 mins. – 10:40 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Luka Doncic checks back in, so Mikal Bridges immediately comes back as well – 10:40 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Disastrous 3.5 minutes for the Mavs. Brunson gets his 3rd foul and the Suns extend their lead by 3 points without their 4 best players on the floor. – 10:40 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
You never know how long it’s going to last but Jae Crowder will eventually get hot after a shooting slump. That day has arrived. – 10:38 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Jae Crowder is 4-for-4, Cam Payne is 2-for-3. Shots are finally falling – 10:38 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Maxi Kleber just tied Luka Doncic for 23rd on the Mavs’ all-time playoff blocks list (9). Go figure. – 10:38 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Kleber misses first shot from 3. Is now 4-of-5. #Suns up 11 as Crowder connects. Has 8. – 10:38 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Phoenix’s offense will do three things that Utah’s didn’t really do vs Mavericks:
– Take care of ball (CP3 is the point guard)
– Take midrange shots (Book lives there)
– Give center the ball before the rebound (Ayton inside) – 10:37 PM

Phoenix Suns @Suns
13 early ones for No. 1. pic.twitter.com/LG5iJzuSAU10:36 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Maxi Kleber has four 3-pointers already. Not sure this is the matchup for JaVale McGee with Dallas rolling out the pick-and-pop bigs – 10:36 PM

Phoenix Suns @Suns
DAWGS ARE DUNKING! pic.twitter.com/nVEnjPiiT410:35 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
#Suns open 2nd quarter with Payne, Shamet, Johnson, Crowder and McGee.
Thoughts? #NBAPlayoffs #NBAPlayoffs2022 – 10:35 PM

Phoenix Suns @Suns
Double digit lead after one. pic.twitter.com/Tu34cGj6Td10:33 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
McGee having an interesting conversation with referees during break after first quarter.
Can’t read lips from up here, but it looks like he’s saying someone from #Mavs is either pushing or using a forearm.
Keeping eye on this moving forward. #Suns #NBAPlayoffs #NBAPlayoffs2022 – 10:33 PM

Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
Reggie Miller: “People forget how gifted a scorer Devin Booker is.” Literally no one has forgotten this. – 10:33 PM

Jeff Wade @SkinWade
Incredible start for Maxi saved the Mavs from complete disaster. Early turnovers on the road is playoff cyanide. It’ll be critical for Reggie to not get that third early in the second.
Deep breath. Need unexpected heroes in the second. Luka can’t be responsible for every bucket – 10:32 PM

Phoenix Suns @Suns
Book is feeling good. pic.twitter.com/jR2zlF9xOa10:32 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
End of 1Q: PHX 35, DAL 25
Booker: 13 Pts, 6 Reb, 4 Ast, 4-8 FG
Ayton: 9 Pts, 4-6 FG
Crowder: 3-2-2
Doncic: 14 Pts, 4 Reb, 5-9 FG – 10:31 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Pacers forward Oshae Brissett shares on IG that he’s in Phoenix for Game 1 of Suns-Mavs. Several former teammates playing — Aaron Holiday and Torrey Craig. pic.twitter.com/xDIR0Y2mQL10:31 PM

Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Pretty good show in the first quarter by the guys I believe will be first-team All-NBA guards.
Devin Booker: 13 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 block
Luka Doncic: 14 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists – 10:31 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Crowder at the five with McGee out .
Payne, Booker, Bridges and Johnson remaining four. #Suns up 10 – 10:31 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Fouls: Dallas 7, Phoenix 1. – 10:29 PM

Dallas Mavericks @dallasmavs
That’s 💰 pic.twitter.com/WeOx2Jbrw610:28 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Doncic 14 on 5-of-9 FGs. Four rebounds, two assists. #Suns #NBAPlayoffs #NBAPlayoffs2022 – 10:28 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Every time I watch Luka, I just think about how he’d be even greater if he was in world class shape. – 10:28 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Doncic with 14 points in the quarter. Suns doing a really good job of forcing him to be a driver and go through a body or two when he does so. He got stuck settling for jumpers and attacked from there. Gonna be really tough on him physically if he sticks with this (and he has to) – 10:28 PM

Phoenix Suns @Suns
Going to the line for another. pic.twitter.com/Mhv2EAiZF310:27 PM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Long stretch with no whistles leads to a mandatory timeout with 4.5 seconds left in the first quarter and the Mavericks down 33-25. They’ve clawed back into the game because of Maxi Kleber’s 3-of-3 3-point shooting. – 10:27 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Death, taxes, Devin Booker 2-for-1s – 10:27 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Good Christmas, Luka is tough – 10:27 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Doncic couldn’t believe a foul wasn’t called, and I tend to agree, was a clear foul. – 10:27 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Talked to Cameron Payne this morning, he said he’s due to make shots after struggles last series.
Just connected on his push shot floater off glass. #Suns up 10. – 10:26 PM

Dallas Mavericks @dallasmavs
Maxi from the corner👌 pic.twitter.com/M2P6Bzbc0810:26 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Maxi Kleber is still God – 10:25 PM

Phoenix Suns @Suns
BLOCKED BY BOOK! pic.twitter.com/wV5XgaXcje10:25 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Maxi Kleber is 3 of 3 from three, so there’s proof at least one Mav made the trip. – 10:25 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Kleber keeping #Mavs in it. corner 3. Third one of quarter. #Suns up 10. – 10:25 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
News bulletin: Suns are really good.
I know all of us knew it, but not so sure the Mavs quite knew what they were getting into. – 10:25 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Booker again. A two. gets the bounce. #Suns up 13. – 10:25 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Yes, I would wager Devin Booker’s hamstring is doing just fine – 10:24 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Booker answers from 3. #Suns up 11. – 10:24 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Bridges with baseline penetration, find McGee cutting to rim for dunk.
Kleber does answer with 3. Has six off bench on two 3s.
Luka 3. #Suns lead down to eight late in 1st. – 10:24 PM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Mavericks have Brunson and Bullock with two fouls apiece and they are shooting 33.3 percent from the field, trailing 24-12 with 3:37 left in the quarter. – 10:23 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
McGee in, as expected – 10:23 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Kleber 3 as Ayton switched on Doncic, who found Kleber in the corner. Ayton answers with two, #Suns up 14. – 10:22 PM

James Boyd @RomeovilleKid
Book just yelled: “Fuck is wrong with you!” in Jalen Brunson’s face after that block. Lol that’ll get you a tech. – 10:21 PM

Phoenix Suns @Suns
Mikal Bridges says HELLO to Round 2! 👋 pic.twitter.com/WShucxJiQi10:21 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Mavericks aren’t prepared for this series at all 😂😂 – 10:21 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Brunson two fouls as he picks up offensive foul driving on Booker.
He’s out, Bertans in. #Suns up 15. – 10:21 PM

Michael C. Wright @mikecwright
Deandre Ayton came into this series shooting 70.0 FG% after setting an NBA playoff record for the highest FG% in a single postseason in 2021 at 65.8 FG% (min. 100 FGM). – 10:21 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Suns have yet to be called for a personal foul. Only the tech on Booker.
Phoenix, meanwhile, is in the penalty. – 10:21 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Cam Payne and Cam Johnson are the first Suns subs to check in, up 22-7 – 10:20 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Two fouls on Brunson. Booker draws the offensive foul. Bertans in for Brunson. – 10:20 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Ayton turnaround over Kleber, who did hold his ground guarding him.
#Suns up 20-7 as Booker was called for technical foul after he reaction to blocking Brunson’s shot. #NBAPlayoffs #NBAPlayoffs2022 – 10:19 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Booker blocked Brunson’s shot and let him know about it. Seems like a lame technical, but, OK. – 10:19 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Devin Booker TALKING to Jalen Brunson after swatting him from behind.
So of course he gets a technical, because we can’t have any fun here – 10:19 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Technical foul on Devin Booker for staring and saying bad words – 10:19 PM

Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Suns looking very much in rhythm early, up 18-6 on Dallas in the first six minutes – 10:18 PM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
It’s possible the Mavericks could have had a worse start, but not sure how. First play was an unforced Luka turnover and the Suns have been running ever since for an 18-6 lead with 6:09 left in the first quarter. – 10:16 PM

Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman
During free agency, Mavericks could really use a 7–foot shotblocking center to be a defensive anchor. Suns completely exploiting their weakness tonight in G 1. Can’t think of any center candidate at the moment. – 10:16 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Deandre Ayton has already attempted four shots at the first timeout of Game 1
Rudy Gobert had multiple first quarter field goal attempts in only one game of the quarterfinals vs Mavericks (Game 2) – 10:16 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Mavs have been hit by a freight train: Suns 18, Mavericks 6. Dallas had 3 early turnovers and the Suns are shooting 50% to Dallas’ 37%. – 10:16 PM

Michael Gallagher @MikeSGallagher
The Suns have better perimeter defenders than the Jazz. #Analysis10:15 PM

Suns look like they’re about to win by a million. – 10:15 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
#Mavs timeout. Down 18-6 and Booker with the follow.
Jae Crowder was in front of the #Mavs bench giving the timeout signal as he headed back to the Phoenix bench. #NBAPlayoffs #NBAPlayoffs2022 #Suns – 10:15 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Ah, right, the best team in the world. Those guys.
18-6 start for the Suns.
Dallas finding it very difficult to get any half-decent look offensively.
Phoenix’s defense –> offense transition is doing the job from there. – 10:15 PM

Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
The Mavs will need to have more buckets than turnovers to compete against the Suns. That ratio is even midway through the first quarter. The score isn’t. – 10:15 PM

Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob
suns sending a msg early – 10:14 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Devin Booker is AMPED after getting multiple offensive boards for the put-back. Suns’ defense is everywhere and they’re getting out and running, up 18-6 – 10:14 PM

Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Well, Mavs didn’t waste much time setting themselves up for what would be a third double-digit comeback in 7 games.
The Suns, however, are not the Jazz. In more ways than one. – 10:14 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
Ayton finish with Luka in the area. Remember. Doncic guarding Gobert a little bit in #Mavs-Jazz series. #Suns #NBAPlayoffs10:14 PM

Reggie Bullock’s isn’t going to play 48 minutes tonight. He’s got 2 fouls in the first 4:38. – 10:12 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
Spencer Dinwiddie replaces Reggie Bullock, who already has 2 fouls. Suns up 14-4 early – 10:12 PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
Luka vs. Bridges is gonna be fun. – 10:12 PM

Ayton has missed out on two steals as the ball got through his hands.

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Guessing the Suns are going to look for DA early, see how the Mavs are playing it and go from there. Monty said over the weekend that they sort of just have to play the first half and adjust from there given the lack of familiarity with this Dallas roster post-deadline. – 10:04 PM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin

Hard not to feel a little bad for Harden. He needs a title and he’s basically lost an All-NBA team to injury late in the last few years for series he could’ve won. CP3, Embiid, Kyrie, Aldridge (retired last year before playoffs), etc. – 9:45 PM

Tony East @TEastNBA
Fever fall in their final preseason game 101-89 to Dallas. 89 is great! 101 is not, especially considering how bad Indiana was on defense in 2021.
That said, I think the Fever will be happy with a combined 42 points from Kelsey Mitchell & NaLyssa Smith. Regular season starts 5/6 – 4:01 PM
