      ?? 12 assists not points ... and averaging 29.1/9.7/9 with 46.8% FG stat line on a 24/15 team would be impressive for every player, not just for a hyped white kid right ? With KP out, of course the whole defense concentrates on him which has an effect on his efficiency, but they will figure out how to play such games. This was a good start.

    Thats the trait of a good player. Keep on working where you are more convenient at a given time. He is a versatile player. Porzingis should have that attitue. He becomes a statue waiting for the hammer on his head. The ball will not fall on his hands like manna. He must work for it.

  • jessica brown

    So proud of luka in this game, he realized finally not to play hero ball, ben simmons was destroying him and humbled him in the way, you could see he completely changed his game and that allowed mavs big men to finally step up and finally they played more defense, I knew if this team played like this, ive been saying it all along if the mavs play team ball and some defense they are a lethal team because of their sharpshooters built around luka. yes hi stat line was awful, everything about it, but he literally realized, i cant get through ben simmons so i need to change my game play and instead of getting angry he kept calm and showed maturity and he then played better towards the end, he as gifted many three throws, but he wasnt flopping as much today or complaining. I actually give him a lot of credit today, this is the old Luka I used to watch. And the mavs players played with lots of intensity. good game guys.!

    • Nejakellega Llega

      @jessica brown you made a very long conversation,but in real Luca is so good, imagine he made a 19 points 12assist 8rebounds, in a 20 year old , hahaha. even mj ,LBJ got below 10 points in his career, but Luca as of now didn't make that .

    • jessica brown
      jessica brown

      @Andrej K. Due to him being european the fans votes will easily get him in even if he didnt deserve it, however he does deserve to be an all-star, but people never discredit anything he does, today showcased how much better the mavs are when they share usage, I will become a fan of lukas again if he played like he did today.

    • Andrej K.

      He just wants to play on All star match (so he has to put up some numbers or make some relevant stats)... After All star weekend he will pass much more. Unfortunately stats are crucial in voting for All star match...

      @Ana Jakoš add also that ref are hesitant to call every foul on him.. Maybe because they don't want him to be another james harden? james harden developed that reputation up to the point that even when his hair was touched by his defender is called a foul..

    why are they trying to cover up for his bad shooting by saying he overcomes woes shooting with 12 assist. Espn is trying to hard to hype everything Luka does its rediculous.

    • Jojie Angelo Carranza
      Jojie Angelo Carranza

      @sunesis susnies this is going nowhere.. i'l repeat what i just said this game he didn't play bad he only has bad shooting night.. Your the one making rediculous claims when this game is not one of those games you are claiming to be.. Your talking about standards on giannis vs luka where the video is not talking about that.. many says luka is not letting his bad shooting game to be hindrance to get the W.. other players will be passive or force many shots if their shot is off.. They said luka just play the right way by helping his teammates gets open looks and not pushing the issue..

    • sunesis susnies

      @Jojie Angelo Carranza I said that cos they've put him up in the MVP conversation, and that's the standard by which I'm measuring him at.

    • Jojie Angelo Carranza
      Jojie Angelo Carranza

      @sunesis susnies lolz where just talking about his last game vs 76ers you just open another topic and you did't even mention giannis on your 1st post.. your the rediculous one..

    • sunesis susnies
      sunesis susnies

      @Jojie Angelo Carranza its a bad game if their gonna try to compare him to Giannis. But if he stays in his lane its a decent game. They were trying to hype him up over Giannis like he's done anything to show that he's at that level where Giannis is, so by Giannis standard its a bad game. And they should call it for what it is.

    • Jojie Angelo Carranza
      Jojie Angelo Carranza

      @sunesis susnies il will ask you 19pts 12 ast 8reb with a +18 plus (+/-) is a bad game? Again i will say he has a bad shooting night but he has a very descent game overall even his defense in this game is good.. When you say he plays bad game it should reflects on his overall stats.. like how he plays in the 1st game vs nuggets where he has stat line of 12pts 4reb 5ast with -17 plus(+/-)..

      @Jojie Angelo Carranza there may be moments in the game where I see someone play solid defense. But it's not consistent, it literally seems like anybody can drive to the basket and not get cut off or forced to go another way. It just seems easier to score in this era compared to past eras!

      Not in this game brah lukas defense in this game is very solid.. Simmons scored only 11pts and 2pts in the 2nd half luka is his main defender... so yeah your timing is wrong comeback next game...

    • Andrej K.
      Andrej K.

      @Y-No Richie T.V. the real problem isn't the defence but inconsistency of refs. Sometimes they let rougher play another time call a foul on (literally) the beard (the hairy part on the chin). This is killing NBA, not general soft defence. Players are just confused what counts for a foul and what doesn't.
