Luka vs Clutch

"

4th quarter of game 1: 1 point, 0/5 FGs, 1/2 FTs, 2 turnovers

4th quarter of game 2: 4 points, 2/7 FGs, 2 turnovers

4th quarter of game 3: 10 points on 3/6 FGs and 2/6 FTs.

5 of those 10 points were in garbage time while the mavs were down 10 with less than 2 minutes left. With 2 minutes left and the game out of reach he had 5 points on 1/3 FGs and 2/6 FTs

4th quarter of game 4: 0 points, 0/1 FGs, 1 turnover

4th quarter of game 5: 2 points, 1/8 FGs, 1 turnover

4th quarter of game 6: 12 points on 5/8 FGs.

7 of those 12 points were in garbage time while down 10 with under a minute left. With 1 minute left and the game out of reach he had 5 points on 2/4 shooting.

4th quarter of game 7: 11 points on 4/8 FGs and 2/2 FTs

Stat padded in garbage time again. 7 of his 11 points came while down 10 with under 2 minutes left. With 2 minutes left and the game out of reach he had 4 points on 1/4 shooting*

It's almost as if Dallas lacked any semblance of a secondary playmaker that could stop the opposition triple teaming Doncic in crunch time.

Maybe pass it if there is 3 players on you
He did.

He passed it to Dorian Finney-Smith, who was asked to create something off the dribble. It didn't end well.

He passed it to Porzingis, who did a pretty good impression of a lamp-post.

He passed it to Josh Richardson, and Maxi Kleber, and Boban. No bueno.


Given he nearly took down the full-strength Clippers - who pushed the Western Conference champs hard WITHOUT Kawhi - single-handedly, I don't think any holders of Luka stock will be panic selling any time soon.

Wow. Stevens loves his PGs who can't shoot.

Dunn, Richardson, Smart, Romeo
He's not a point guard, he's a wing.

Rumours that Fournier's price may be too steep for you.

Also rumours that Dunn may be moved on. Smart has also had rumours about him for months.

Boston trade Thompson to Atlanta for Dunn + Bruno Fernando + 2023 second rounder.

Making cap space 3m in this.

Will most likely dump Bruno..

UPDATE:
Dunn absorbs the trade exception we made when trading Kanter (Kanter gave us a 5mill trade exception which was due to expire in the next couple of days).

We now have a new $9.2 for Trading Thompson lmao
It is a 3 way, TT off to Sac town, Hawks get Delon Wright. We land a solid backup and gave up bits we don't need, another strong move by our GM.

Rumours CP3 will opt out of his 44 mill fibnal year and sign a 90/3 at the Suns.

Rumblings of a CJ for Siakam trade, not sure if that has many legs behind it though.

Giannis having 2x MVPs and a ring and Finals MVP by age 26 is worth gushing over.

But it made me realise how different KD would be viewed if his prime didnt unluckily exist alongside prime LeBron. In a universe where LeBron doesnt exist, KD has 4x MVPs and probably the 2012 ring and Finals MVP by age 25.
