Due to the majesty of the NBA play-in — seriously, it made the end of the regular season so much more exciting than usual — the Clippers get a full week to prepare for the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs. It’s a good thing, because head coach Ty Lue basically said that LA’s three matchups against Dallas during the regular season were useless in terms of predicting what the playoffs could look like.
He is greatest Maverick of all time. As you can tell, Dirk’s One-Legged Fade miracle made me float with happiness. I meet him maybe soon.
But Charlotte and Dallas appear to be Holmes' most likely destinations if he were to land elsewhere. "I think everyone's going to be chasing him," said one team analytics staffer. The Hornets pursued Holmes before the trade deadline in a package that centered around swapping guard Malik Monk, sources said, although Charlotte's interest in Myles Turner and Montrezl Harrell also became widely known around the league.
