They are whole. Nobody is out in this seating round, but again they had so many players in and out of the bubble and in and out of the lineup, including three and five in the bubble and another steal. This time morris, knocks it away, throws it up and zubots the games that he’s played so far down here in orlando shooting the ball extremely well. That continues with his second steal leonard, has cleba back on him and emergencies. Now harrow returned to orlando last sunday and dr rivers was not happy. He had to quarantine for seven days, given it was an excused absence, but he talked about that in terms of this chemistry, dutch, it slips looked like he slipped on a wet spot and he’s slow to get up now, he’s, okay, still a little bit of a Limp george goes down the other way: zubox tips it up, and in and zubots i don’t think it’s a big issue, because when, when tres gets back into the rotation, whether it’s tonight as from this restart, they have no chemistry issues on offense, marcus morris. Just added to the mixture all the coaches have talked about being so vocal on the bench Music doncic floats it up and in with a rebound hardaway steps back and hard away able to connect. Jalen brunson missing dwight powell, missing tim hardaway, connects go to wrigley nicely but it’s hard to replace two players who play such important roles morris very aggressive early seth curry’s also in the game.
Porzingis sets and hits. Porzingis is shooting 22 and a half points per game. Dorian finney smith comes up short gets. His own rebound goes back up nice second effort, as he took it away from down by five they trailed by 16. At one point: Music, porzingis off the dribble count it and one verses up the shot. Won’T go fight for the rebound porzingis throws it ahead to seth, curry, curry three pointer, that’s good curry, makes his move slip, shot won’t go jamichael green has come into the game. He has played well and there’s lou williams, quickly to the basket but defensively that’s, where his challenge is doncic, curry, good, wide, open, look and seth curry off the bench knock and after that horrendous start by the mavericks. They have put it together, kawaii leonard luca, up at the three point line. Patrick beverly was picking him up coast to coast, harassing him he’s able to get to his spot, assist and good for michael kidd gilchrist, who has struggled shooting since he came in the league, knocks down that three of the bright lights at all. George creates a little space can’t hit it rebound inside count. It good jump final minute. First quarter: Music, doncic probes, kicks it out kid gilchrist, just spotting up, knocks down another three and now they’re up by one doncic nails, a three pointer kid gilchrist two for two off the bench. He only had five three pointers. All season five for 20, as george throws that one pass through the hands of green shaman took a hard tumble, delon wright in the game as well.
Another three pointer there. Now they signed it back in february after charlotte, waved him his first seven and a half years with charlotte doncic again gets inside trying to draw some contact. He thought he got to michael green now on doncic, kicks it out and finds seth curry, that’s good curry with another three pointer, lou williams through the hands of morris, another turnover that’s, the seventh trey burke, lays it up and in good drive from the field he Dominated leonard elbow jumper is good morris now spins shoots over porzingis and gets a nice bounce. Zubox has had a nice impact since he’s re entered the game, leonard rattles that one home he’s got fourteen it’s been a wild first half and again they said it with porzingis. I would have said it with cleva on with zubats having to guard it. Applause, leonard back to williams, lou williams, sets corner. Three is good. Paul george hesitated now gets inside goes right at porzingis top shot from paul right now, it’s, a four point: dallas advantage under four and a half remaining second quarter game. One best of seven in the opening round is each with 15. doncic kicks it out hard away for three. There are ten of hunch down mismatches, since, of course, i say that he turns the pull over as lou williams kicks it out. Marcus morris knocks down a three little williams. Trying to draw some contact, as is morris steps in knocks down a two horse would lay hard away contested three, knocks it down tim hardin, losing out on him and had enough air space to get the three dutches season.
Opening drives inside the wage is kind of high five two minutes to play: first: half leonard nice feet inside zubot’s, second effort banks at home refund the call lou williams searching, gets it inside and zubots again big part of him turning it around to getting comfortable because He didn’t feel quite comfortable when he first started the season. Lou williams, a three pointer, but that takes and hardaway came part of that deal as well kicks it out to klieba klieba that’s, a three and mike finney smith, has deflected still loose. Harold comes up with it. Harold drives on doncic goes right at him and doncic’s upset. He thought he got a clean instead he’s gon na that’s, you all the time blaming the receiver instead of sand. That was a poorly thrown pass dodgers puts. It is set to scream Applause, carrying violation, some extra words after the play morris and doncic porzingis, getting in the way and there’s some shoves patrick beverly, getting involved. It used to be that officiating had more license for common sense and to me that is nothing. That is nothing you do. You should you’re, not ejected other than that. I didn’t see anything else: Applause, patrick beverly, straight on three that’s good beverly art away foul line. Jumper is good. Hardaway marcus morris drives on hard away. Look at the post up he’s got the size advantage there and morse morse jab step jumper got it again, marcus for dallas morris feeling it right now, zubot’s keeping it alive gathers, goes up and throws it down unfortunate that he got tossed yep doncic for three.
As the shot clock, experience get better as a three point shooter and you can forget about defending leonard falling away rattles it home little back door leonard kicks it out, paul george for three in the situation and has to be held responsible for his actions. Players know when they have a technical foul. They should know that anything hardaway goes back up top dodge’s side step, lays it up and then beautiful euro step just gets him to where he wants to go. Lou williams got hit and that good defense from trey burke harrell just bullies his way in and banks it all mantra’s, harold curry, as burke drives shot won’t go more yanovich to rebound, count it and one the strength of george green jackson and harold, oh sweet move. There from paul Music, the runner along the baseline nice move there, tim holloway jr gets a good look nails. Another three that’s, his fourth pass inside mantras, harold with the finish, see ya amen. I thought it was just me, curry, with a nice runner, the natural letdown by your own team, there’s burke, with a block shot, you think about it. They signed him off the scrap heap in july july. 1St right, george is right there at the rim, george drills. It shot clock at eight notches drives on morris, finds curry. Curry gets a good look line, drive drills, it sucked off a great shooter by curry, and then curry gets a wide open, look as leonard answers firsthand, but not despite having all those turnovers showing what he’s made of in a tough situation.
His ladder drives and finished. Lennon inserted into the game, the last two possessions is like take a break. I got you gotcha, has it going again? Leonard fakes gets past stonches nice feet inside patrick beverly banks at home, rebounder leonard, drives well defended and still knocks it down. Cleveland doncic drives goes right at morris pass inside beautiful feed. Layup is good up top to paul george finney smith. In pursuit george kicks it out in the corner. Beverly tries another three that one’s good patrick. That time. Paul george made the play that’s a great look for beverly hills, gotcha spins inside flips it up and insane as we hit two minutes remaining. A four point: clipper lead. Those last two transition plays were killers for dallas and fakes. Leans in bank shot is good. 38 points doncic fakes, the pullback now goes inside flips it up shot, won’t, go rebound, save nearly deflected. Oh curry, got it and shot clock at six george step back three bang pull george from down gives him the opportunity to switch pretty much everything doncic drives on jackson gets inside, lays it in easily a full set and a terrific competitive spirit about it. Maverick’S still alive, doncic drives, gets inside, lays it up and in it’s a four point and prepare themselves for game. Two, jim honaway misses and that’ll.
