Real romp past Estudiantes as derby day brings back memories

Ah you’ve just got to love the simplicity of European team anthems. especially when they seem totally alien to the backdrop. ¡Hala Madrid! by Jose De Aguilar, leading right into the more typical tune for a modern arena, Stop the Rock by Apollo 440. This is what you get when you go to sport on the continent. Judging by the speed they were going at, you’d have sworn Real were in blowout mood. They came into this derby as 14 point favourites and were scoring for fun. Their D however was letting Es...

Mavericks' overtime win throws NBA draft lottery into chaos

With star rookie Luka Doncic held out of the last few regular season games due to injury, there's seemingly not a lot on the line for the Dallas Mavericks outside of enjoying the time we have left with Dirk Nowitzki. But, of course, there are still a handful of games left on the schedule, and the Mavs made it entertaining with a 129-127 overtime win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday. Behind a career-high 19 points from Salah Mejri, Dallas picked up its third win in five games.

Mavs' Doncic shrugs off critics before Grizzlies

Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic has experienced the second-guessing twice now this season, the latest coming at the end of Wednesday's 110-108 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. With the clock ticking down, Doncic made a terrific move to free himself from his defender and stepped back for what appeared would be an open 3-point attempt. Instead he whipped a pass to his left to rookie teammate Jalen Brunson, whose man had left him to lunge at Doncic believing he was about to take the sho...

Report: Knicks talked Kristaps Porzingis for De'Aaron Fox trade with Kings last draft

The Knicks had made their minds up and were considering moving on from Kristaps Porzingis long before this trade deadline (when he was sent to Dallas), they were testing the waters all the way back to last June and the draft. Last draft, the Sacramento Kings had a decision to make, too: How much did they believe in De'Aaron Fox? As a rookie, Fox had shown flashes and promise, but at No. 2 the Kings could pick Luka Doncic (or even Trae Young) and have gone in another direction.

How Kings chose De'Aaron Fox over Luka Doncic with NBA draft decision

How Kings chose De'Aaron Fox over Luka Doncic with NBA draft decision originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com Ever since the 2018 NBA Draft, there have been debates about whether the Kings made the right decision by drafting Marvin Bagley instead of Luka Doncic.

Trae Young on this year's rookie class: 'I'm the best one'

Luka Doncic was heartbroken after Nikola Jokić's buzzer-beater saved Nuggets

Nikola Jokić was a buzzer-beating heartbreaker on Thursday night, and all Luka Doncic could do was watch it happen. The Denver Nuggets just barely beat the Dallas Mavericks 100-99, erasing a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter. The game's final six seconds featured a dunk by Doncic that gave the Mavs the lead, but that was canceled out just seconds later by Jokić's bonkers trick-shot buzzer-beater.

Latest betting outlook as NBA Playoff race hots up

Some people need water to survive; some of them prefer food more, while others live from adrenaline. There are no many things as exciting as NBA playoffs battles are.   One of the most important things in the NBA playoffs is home court advantage. Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics are currently in such battle in Eastern conference. These teams are likely to play each other in the 1st round of playoffs, but it is a very big difference where the potential game 7 is going to be played at.   ...

Mavericks to evaluate Luka Doncic after rookie felt 'pop' in knee in loss to Rockets

Dallas Mavericks forward Luka Doncic said he felt a “pop” in his right knee during their 94-93 loss to the Houston Rockets on Sunday, something the organization will evaluate further on Monday. Doncic, per the Dallas Morning News, said he felt “discomfort” in his right knee while grabbing an uncontested rebound. The rookie didn't leave the game and played through the injury — which is likely a good sign for Doncic and the Mavericks.

The Clippers got me thinking about Gallo

I wasn’t there to see them and, honestly, I couldn’t then nor can now name a single one of their songs.

Luka Doncic answers crossover flub with halfcourt buzzer beater

Joe Harris showed Luka Doncic he's more than a three-point shooter on Monday. The Brooklyn Nets guard took a pass on the perimeter and made the Dallas Mavericks rookie look like, well, a rookie in a 127-88 win. Doncic, apparently sure that the three-point champion was going to shoot from beyond the arc, quickly closed on Harris on the wing.
