(Photo by Joshua Gateley/Getty Images)   Luka Doncic may not have won the NBA championship, but he still made league history in the playoffs. He’s drawing plenty of criticism for the way the Dallas Mavericks’ season came to an end, but it’s not like he didn’t try. As pointed out by StatMuse on Twitter, the Slovenian star led the entire playoffs in total points, rebounds, assists, steals, three-pointers, and field goals made. 2024 playoff leaders: PTS — Luka Doncic REB — Luka Doncic AST — Luka Doncic STL — Luka Doncic 3PM — Luka Doncic FGM — Luka Doncic What a run. pic.twitter.com/gO0PJTt ..read more

23h ago
(Photo by David Berding/Getty Images)   The Dallas Mavericks impressed many with their postseason performance but there are still some who feel that things need to change. Can they really win the Finals with their current lineup or should alterations be made? Colin Cowherd likes the idea of Luka Doncic playing alongside Kyrie Irving but doesn’t think the partnership works like it’s supposed to. Instead, he thinks Paul George would perform better with Doncic. “I think literally a perfect player for Luka is Paul George,” Cowherd said on The Volume, via ClutchPoints. He said that George’s le ..read more

(Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)   Luka Doncic just experienced his first time in the NBA Finals and it didn’t go well. Even though the Dallas Mavericks had a very strong second half of the season, they didn’t have what it took to stop the Boston Celtics. Some people criticized Doncic’s performance during the Finals, including his dismal showing in Game 3. On Wednesday’s “Get Up,” per ClutchPoints, Zach Lowe spoke about Doncic and mentioned the many ways he can get better in the years ahead. However, he added that the Mavericks “are nowhere without him” and said he is “maybe the single-most f ..read more

(Photo by Joshua Gateley/Getty Images)   The Dallas Mavericks’ unexpected run to the NBA Finals ended on Monday night when they succumbed to the Boston Celtics in Game 5, 106-88, which gave the Celtics their 18th world championship. Luka Doncic ended his first finals appearance with a solid game: 28 points on 12-of-25 shooting, 12 rebounds, five assists and three steals. However, he went 2-of-9 from 3-point range and had seven turnovers, and at times in this series, he had trouble consistently hitting his shot. LeSean McCoy said on Fox Sports 1’s “Speak” that Doncic is “the worst All-Star ..read more

(Photo by Allen Kee/Getty Images)   The Dallas Mavericks fell short in their quest to erase a 3-0 deficit in the NBA Finals, ultimately succumbing to the Boston Celtics in Game 5 last night in another blowout. The performance has apparently caused Undisputed’s Skip Bayless to lose respect for one player on the Mavericks after the way the team bowed out of the playoffs. Bayless pointed out how much better Luka Doncic was this season as both a three-point shooter and from the free-throw line, but was disappointed in how poorly he shot it in Boston in this series and said he lost respect for ..read more

(Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images)   The Dallas Mavericks ultimately came up short in the NBA Finals and got blown out once again by the Boston Celtics in Game 5 last night, failing in their quest to become the first team to come back from a 3-0 deficit. It was a tough ending for an incredible run the team had through the postseason, and former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach J.B. Bickerstaff believes that one of the team’s stars displayed a tremendous amount of toughness in the series. Bickerstaff appeared on SiriusXM NBA Radio with Brian Scalabrine and Frank Isola and shared how impr ..read more

Analyst Rips Luka Doncic’s Work Ethic

(Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty Images)   The Dallas Mavericks have one of the best and most talented players in the world. Luka Doncic’s god-given talents are some of the most impressive we’ve seen, and it’s clear that he was born to play the game of basketball. Nonetheless, as good as he is, he just finished his sixth year in the NBA, and we’re still hearing the same things about him. It’s become painfully evident that he’s not in great shape, and he looks gassed and exhausted late in games, particularly late in the season. Also, his constant complaining and body language have been a talki ..read more

Analyst Says He Doesn’t Believe The Mavericks Are Close To Winning Championship

(Photo by Tim Heitman/Getty Images)   The Dallas Mavericks made it quite far this season, but they ran out of gas when it mattered the most. They upset three very good teams on their way to the NBA Finals, taking down the Los Angeles Clippers and the top two seeds in the Western Conference, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Minnesota Timberwolves. Then, Kyrie Irving’s subpar performances, Luka Doncic’s poor conditioning and injuries, and the fact that the supporting cast didn’t show up offensively at times backfired for Jason Kidd’s team. That’s why Jason Timpf and Colin Cowherd believe the M ..read more

Jay Williams Was Shocked By 1 Mavericks Star’s Performance In Game 5

(Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)   Kyrie Irving failed the Dallas Mavericks, plain and simple. He couldn’t get past his history with the Boston Celtics and their fans, and he was far from his best at the TD Garden. It’s not that the Celtics defense wasn’t elite because it was, but for one of the best offensive talents on Earth to have as many points as field goals taken in a five-game series, something else has to be happening. That’s why Jay Williams criticized him for how passive he was throughout the course of the series, particularly in a win-or-go-home game. Talking on ESPN’s Get ..read more

Kyrie Irving Gets Honest About Losing To Celtics In NBA Finals
The Cold Wire » Dallas Mavericks

2d ago
(Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty Images)   The Dallas Mavericks got Kyrie Irving for one thing and one thing only, and that was to win the NBA Finals. Fortunately for them, they’re going to have more opportunities to try to do so, as he failed them in his first opportunity. Irving was nowhere to be found in four out of the five games in the NBA Finals, including a win-or-go-home Game 5. His shot wasn’t falling, his newly-found defensive prowess vanished in the air, and he clearly let the fans and the TD Garden get into his head. However, despite being perhaps the main reason why the Mavericks ..read more
