I'm BACK! After 10 days off I'm back to recap the latest Mavs games. I brought along Optimist Bibs to help me out.

This was a rough game to watch. The Clippers finally realized they’re bigger than us and used that to beat us into submission. Playoff P woke up, and Harrell was forced to have a good game. Tonight we looked like we were missing a 30 point per game guy. I started the pod by being candid about the players and their statements about the Blake shooting (6 minutes), Cold open (7 minutes), game talk (14 minutes), questions (18 minutes). ***at the start of the game talk portion of the cold open I said Kane Fitzgerald tossed Luka in game 1, obviously it was KP that was tossed.***

August 24, 2020
Mavs Recap: Luka goes down with an ankle injury but the Mavs yet again give the Clippers a fight
This game ended rough with Luka Doncic being unable to finish the game. What looked like a potentially bad ankle sprain sidelined Luka and now we’ll wait to see how long. In the meantime, PG continues to struggle and Seth and Trey Burke continue to get buckets off the bench. I also decided to allow myself to get controversial by addressing the idea of “white boy” as a racial slur. (11 minute cold open, 15 minutes game talk, 17 minutes on the slur situation)

Mavs Recap: Luka Legend gets his first playoff W despite foul trouble. The bench comes up HUGE
When you look at this game on paper the Mavs were far from perfect but still managed to come out with a strong victory over most people’s favorite to take the title. Burke, Boban, and Curry combined for 44. It was an all around performance from the Mavs and the Clippers will need to make some major adjustments before game 3. 10 minute cold open, 13 on the numbers, 13 on questions and announcements.
