Michael Singer @msinger
Asked Austin how MPJ is doing: “He wants to play well really badly, obviously just because he loves the game, first and foremost. Forget his contract. … This dude, whether he got paid $200 million or $2 million would approach it the same way. It’s what I love about him.” – 11:12 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Kristaps Porzingis said he talked with Luka for a bit after the game: “He’s always just, ‘Hey, I’ll be good. I’ll be good.’ Hopefully he is good. I don’t think we know yet what it is, but we’re hoping he’s healthy.” – 11:07 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
We won’t hear from Doncic tonight because he is getting treatment on his ankle. Also, the Mavs have cancelled tomorrow’s practice, so we might not get an update on Doncic’s condition before the team flies to Phoenix tomorrow afternoon. – 10:55 PM
Dwain Price @DwainPrice
On that injury to Luka with just 44 seconds left in the 111-101 win over Denver, Jason Kidd said: “Luka walked off on his own power. I think he got rolled up on his lower left leg, so we’ll see how he feels tomorrow.” – 10:54 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Jason Kidd said Luka Doncic walked off on his own power at game’s end. Said he got his left lower leg rolled on. “We’ll see how he feels tomorrow.” – 10:52 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. on Mavs fourth-quarter lineup: “I think it was funky.” – 10:46 PM

Jason Kidd on Luka Doncic’s ankle injury w/44 seconds left to play tonight: “Luka walked off on his own power. I think he got rolled up on on his lower left leg. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow.” – 10:44 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Mavs build on their best game of the year in SA, with their best game of the year in beating DEN. They’re starting to gain momentum, and it’s needed because these next couple of weeks are going to be brutal. – 10:41 PM

Kind of a bloodbath tonight. Injuries from the game action this evening so far:
Evan Mobley (sprained right elbow), Time Lord (sharp pain in left knee), Mitch Robinson (ankle), Kevin Porter Jr. (thigh), Bones Hyland (ankle), Kevin Huerter (hamstring) – 10:39 PM

Luka Dončić finished with 23 points, 8 rebounds and 11 assists tonight.
Dončić has now recorded at least 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in each of his last six games.
It is now the longest streak of 20-5-5 across the @NBA season (previous: Paul George, 5 games). pic.twitter.com/tlS4BYgms610:32 PM

Heading to the Loser’s Lounge. Come join. Let’s crack jokes and break this all day.
✅ Injuries adding up
✅ At least we have Jokic
✅ Monte rising
✅ Is the Nuggets bench back on the struggle bus?

Kristaps Porzingis finished with 29 points (5-8 3FG), 11 points, 3 assists, 2 steals and a block in tonight’s win. The Mavericks improved to 13-5 all-time when Porzingis goes for 25+ points and 10+ boards.

Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Final rotations for the Nuggets as they lose to the Mavs 111-101. A classic “ran out of gas” game for the starters.
Big difference is the bench has to pick you up in these situations. 10-point loss and they go:
Facu: -11
Bones: -16

Chris Dempsey @chrisadempsey
Tip of the cap to Tim Hardaway Jr., who was brilliant in the 4th quarter for the Mavs with 13 points. End the end, the #Nuggets only had 1 good defensive quarter – the 2nd – and that cost them, snapping a 5-game winning streak. They’ll get back at it vs. Philly on Thursday. – 10:21 PM
Jeff Stotts @InStreetClothes
Looked like Rivers fell on Luka, forcing his left ankle into eversion. That stresses the medial ankle, the area opposite a “normal” ankle sprain. Hope he’s ok. – 10:20 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
There goes Denver’s five-game winning streak. Jokic’s season-high 35 points wasn’t enough as Denver’s injuries caught up to them.
Mavs 111, Nuggets 101. – 10:20 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Mavs’ beat the Nuggets 111-101 for their first win over a team with a better record this season.
KP was great (29 points, 11 reb, 3 ast), but Luka turning his ankle in the final minute was less so. – 10:19 PM
Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson
Porzingis was INCREDIBLE tonight. Spectacular even as he had his best game in years.
He’ll deserve the national attention that’ll come his way as he finished with 29 points and 11 rebounds.
He was STILL the 2nd best player on the court as Nikola Jokic had a modest 35/16/6. – 10:18 PM
Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Nikola Jokic has scored 35 of Denver’s 98 points tonight — it won’t be enough. Nuggets’ five-game winning streak is over. Denver hosts Philly Thursday. – 10:18 PM
Michael Dugat @mdug
Damn, please be ok, Luka – 10:18 PM
Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
As Mavs are closing out their best win of the season, Luka Doncic limps off after turning his left ankle with 44 seconds remaining. – 10:17 PM
Gordon Gross @GMoneyNuggs
Denver got tired, Dallas played well, and a couple of bounces that either found luck or didn’t made a big difference. Fun game, now let’s try and get these teams together when neither is on a back to back. – 10:17 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Believe it or not, missing 3 of your 4 best players on the second night of a back to back is not easy. Nuggets five-game winning streak is on the verge of being snapped on Dallas right now. – 10:16 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Blazers start this game exactly the same way they began Sunday’s loss at Denver. Portland is down 13-3 not even three minutes into the game. UGLY. – 10:16 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Mavs’ closing lineup of Luka-Brunson-THJ-Reggie-KP has been quite productive. – 10:14 PM
Denver Nuggets @nuggets
Season-high 35 points for Joker 💪 pic.twitter.com/NF7Ovqy9dw10:14 PM

No quit in the MVP. – 10:11 PM

This is Dallas’ biggest lead, 10 points. – 10:05 PM
Denver Nuggets @nuggets
Up to 28 points for Nikola.
Need one final push. pic.twitter.com/j1Qc4NsbDN10:05 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
Bones Hyland is able to return if needed, I’m told, but he’s obviously dealing with a left ankle issue. – 10:05 PM
Detroit Pistons PR @Pistons_PR
Cade Cunningham (20 yrs, 51 days) became the youngest player in NBA history with at least 25 pts, 8 rebs, 8 asts and 5 3FGM in a game. He is followed by LeBron James (20 yrs, 100 days), Trae Young (20 yrs, 163 days) & Luka Doncic (20 yrs, 248 days). #Pistons
(via @EliasSports) – 10:03 PM
Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson
Nuggets are short-handed and Malone sees his team losing momentum.
Jokic is in earlier than usual to try and get the momentum back for Denver and stop the bleeding – 9:59 PM
Katy Winge @katywinge
Bones Hyland just hobbled to the Nuggets bench. He’s got his shoe off and is holding his left ankle. – 9:59 PM
Dallas Mavericks @dallasmavs
TIMMMMMMY HARDAWAY JR. – 9:56 PM
Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson
JaMychal Green just slammed Frank Ntilikinia
Finney-Smith got in his face and Green went off on him.
Now while the play is under review he is STILL going at it with Mavs guys on the other side of the court.
After the review a double-technical foul on Green-DFS. – 9:56 PM
Adam Mares @Adam_Mares
The Jokic incident has the whole league nervous as hell whenever there’s any kind of altercation. 😂😂 – 9:54 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Hope everyone has someone who supports them as much as the ex-Knicks Mavs love Frank Ntilikina. – 9:54 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Aftermath of Green/Finney-Smith dustup. Ntilikina got knocked to the court by Green and Finney-Smith strongly objected. pic.twitter.com/kWXtDRnLKV9:53 PM

Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Mavs and Nugs haver a little dust-up with Reggie Bullock and JaMychal Green in the middle of it. Green gave a strong forearm to the chest area. – 9:52 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
JaMychal Green looked like he wanted to dance with the whole Mavericks roster. – 9:52 PM
Kurt Helin @basketballtalk
Watch Bol Bol with the acrobatic and-1 scoop lay-up. Yes, you read that right. nba.nbcsports.com/2021/11/15/wat…9:48 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
JaMychal Green got fouled on that putback attempt. Wasn’t called. Missed a layup. Didn’t run back on defense. Nuggets give up two threes. Timeout. – 9:48 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
B2B 3s by Finney-Smith and Bullock give Mavs an 85-83 lead — Dallas’ first lead since it was 41-39. – 9:48 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Mavs started the fourth quarter with Dorian Finney-Smith at the 5 and almost instantly took their first lead since early in the second quarter.
This team stays weird. – 9:47 PM
Adam Mares @Adam_Mares
First 5 minutes of this 4th quarter will provide a great test for Bones and the Nuggets bench. Starters look exhausted. – 9:45 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Mavericks go into the fourth quarter down 83-79. Should be a fun finish on a Monday night. – 9:43 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Timely baskets off the bench here from Ntilikina, Marjanovic and Bullock. – 9:41 PM
Dallas Mavericks @dallasmavs
🦄 has been BLISTERING tonight

Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson
Kristaps Porzingis is having himself a day.
Haven’t seen him play well in so long that I’m in awe of the kind of shooter he is.
Up to 29 points in three quarters with five 3-pointers made and also has eight rebounds. – 9:37 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Nuggets 79, Mavericks 75.
Are we not entertained? – 9:36 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
The Nuggets role players are willingly just spamming midrange shots right now. – 9:36 PM
Katy Winge @katywinge
I swear sometimes the Nuggets best offense is a missed shot so Jokić can get the rebound and put it back in – 9:35 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Kristaps Porzingis is 11-of-18 and 5-of-7 from 3. He and Luka have combined for 45 points. Rest of Mavs? 25.
They are down 77-70. – 9:34 PM
Denver Nuggets @nuggets
So 𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙛𝙩𝙮 with it @Austin Rivers 😯 pic.twitter.com/Fe2UwYv46J9:33 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
Subtle thing off that Gordon defensive rebound. #Nuggets have been guilty of putting up bad transition 3s this season, and Rivers decided not to. Instead, fed Jokic inside which is generally easy money. – 9:32 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Nikola Jokic is too much for Dwight Powell or anybody else right now. Nuggets up 73-63. Jokic with 21 points, 11 rebounds. But a Porzingis 3-pointer makes it 73-66. – 9:31 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Nuggets looking like a team that hit the energy wall on a b2b going east. – 9:25 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Doncic with a great hustle play, deflecting pass intended for Jokic, then throwing the ball off Jokic’s leg — and then shielding Jokic from retrieving the ball before it went out of bounds. – 9:25 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
We’ll find out pretty soon how tired the Nuggets might or might not be after playing at home last night. Mavs, conversely, are playing on two days’ rest. – 9:23 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
That’s a tremendous move baseline, Jokic – 9:22 PM
Sean Grande @SeanGrandePBP
Celtics win 98-92.
They go to 5-4 on the road, the four losses?
Double OT at New York
Double OT at Washington
The crazy Luka buzzer shot at Dallas
2-point loss at Cleveland.
They’ll take the NBA’s #1 road defense into Atlanta Wednesday, Hawks about to go to 5-1 at home. – 9:20 PM

14-22 shooting for Mavs in 1st qtr, 5-22 in 2nd and increasing frustration for Doncic who was teed up at the end of the half. DEN a 14-5 run to end half leads 58-49. Porzingis 17. Doncic 13-5-6. Jokic 13-11-4 to lead DEN 2nd half soon @theeagledallas9:09 PM
Adam Mares @Adam_Mares
Monte Morris is really starting to hit his stride. One of the reasons that the Nuggets have gotten a rhythm on offense over this winning streak. – 9:07 PM
Chris Dempsey @chrisadempsey
Just look at the job the #Nuggets defense did on the Mavericks in the 2nd quarter. Dallas had just 14 points on 5/2 shooting. Made just 2 shots outside of the paint. This was a masterclass in defense. pic.twitter.com/oL7H86dK4w9:07 PM

Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Halftime rotations for the Nuggets as they lead the Mavs 58-49.
-Jokić has 13-11-4 I guess?
-Starters have been efficient
-Bol Bol with 7 important points off the bench
-Bones rolled an ankle pic.twitter.com/PjfCCH79jW9:07 PM

Duvalier Johnson @DuvalierJohnson
On the 2nd night of a back-to-back the Nuggets are in control at the half.
Jokic has a double-double of 13 points, 11 rebounds
Morris has 11 points, 5 assists and we saw some Bol Bol who has 7 points.
If you’re Coach Malone, what’s your message to the team? – 9:06 PM

Luka Doncic finished the first half with 13 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 block, 1 steal, several choice words to refs and 1 technical foul as Mavs walk off the court. – 9:04 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Game was tied at 44 with 6:09 left in the first half. Nuggets scored 14 of the last 19 points to take a 58-49 halftime lead.
And Doncic just got a tech while walking off the court. – 9:04 PM
Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Luka Doncic got in one last word with the refs before heading to the locker room at the half. The second half will start with a technical free throw. – 9:04 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Mavericks have only 14 points in the second quarter and have fallen behind 58-49 with 48 seconds to go. – 9:02 PM

Doncic is shaking his left hand after that play. – 8:59 PM
Callie Caplan @CallieCaplan
Nuggets’ 50-44 lead is their largest tonight.
Mavs went from shooting 63.6% FG in the first quarter to 21.4% so far in the second. – 8:56 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
So I guess this means Porzingis will guard Jokic? He’s the only Mavericks big on the court. Worked in San Antonio, but this isn’t San Antonio. – 8:54 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Doncic with the rare missed shot, rebound, turnover sequence. – 8:52 PM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
….I popped on the Nuggets-Mavericks game right as Bol Bol entered and uhh…
The Mavs gotta have some real Porzingis worries at this point, right? Bol for sure played well, but it’s a concern to see your starting center have those kinda issues with him, right? – 8:52 PM
Gordon Gross @GMoneyNuggs
Monte Morris is getting that “last-second grenade pass to a non-shooter” habit that Barton can be guilty of. If there are 3 seconds on the shot clock, just shoot it. – 8:50 PM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
Bol Bol running laps around a dusty, cement-foot Porzingis has made for a tremendous Monday evening. – 8:49 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
The issue with Bol Bol has never been his ability to play exactly how he is tonight. The issue is his consistency and urgency. Tonight, he’s playing well but he needs to continue to prove he is worthy of trust if he wants to break into the rotation. – 8:47 PM

Okpala had been held out of six of the previous seven games, with the lone minutes in the interim the mop up after the Heat-Nuggets fracas. – 8:44 PM

Brad Townsend @townbrad
Nuggets bench more than holding its own, which, if it continues, could be the key to the game for a Denver team playing on a B2B. – 8:43 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Bol Bol is making a real impact. It’s a short stint so far, but he’s helping. – 8:42 PM

The moment we’ve all been waiting for — a Bol Bol breakout game.
Getting the opportunity with Barton and Zeke Nnaji out and is providing a spark for the Nuggets. – 8:42 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Bol Bol and Porzingis guarding one another is quite something. – 8:41 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Bol Bol turned sideways and I lost him for a second, but he just made a dandy move to the rim for a scoop shot while getting fouled. Then he put in a paint jumper. Kid has some skill. Runs in the family. – 8:40 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Looked like George Gervin of 40 years ago snuck into the game for Denver. – 8:40 PM

Bones Hyland looked like he twisted his ankle late in the first quarter. Monte checks back in as Bones walks to the locker room. – 8:38 PM

Bones Hyland is walking to the locker room gingerly. But under his own power.
Looks like it is his ankle. – 8:38 PM

JaMychal Green’s year summed up in one stat: He has 29 made baskets to 21 turnovers this season, the second-most on the Nuggets. Green also has the fourth-worst turnovers ratio in the NBA ahead of only Marvin Bagley, Nerlens Noel and Dwight Howard. – 8:37 PM

Mavs scored 5 points in the last 2.6 seconds of the first quarter to take a 35-32 lead:
THJ played QB to KP for a layup in transition, and after a Nuggets travel, Brunson hit a 3 at the buzzer.
Whew. – 8:36 PM
Michael C. Wright @mikecwright
Shootout in Dallas underway apparently. – 8:36 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
We’ve got a fun one: Mavs 35, Nuggets 32 after 1Q, as Brunson sinks a buzzer-beating 3-pointer and Mavs score five points in the last 2.0 seconds.
Porzingis and Doncic have 10 points apiece and Brunson has five. Jokic leads Denver with 9 points.
BOTH TEAMS shooting 63.6%. – 8:35 PM
Dwain Price @DwainPrice
The #Mavs just got 5 pts in the last 5 seconds of the 1st quarter. They lead the Nuggets 35-32 after the 1st quarter. – 8:35 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Jalen Brunson is simply rolling right now. He just drilled a 3-pointer at the first quarter buzzer to deliver the Mavericks a 35-32 lead. Mavericks were plus-6 after Brunson came into the game. – 8:35 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Aaron Gordon has been thoroughly fantastic over the last week or so. He finding where he can impact the offense on a more consistent basis and defending his ass off. – 8:34 PM

It really is insane how easy things are for Denver offensively when the shots drop. You can say that about a lot of teams, but Denver especially generates runways on their backdoor cuts when teams jump out to help on shooters. – 8:20 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Aaron Gordon hesitated on that dunk because he couldn’t believe how wide-open he was. Joker, already with 4/5/3 in six minutes, didn’t miss him. – 8:19 PM

TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Austin Rivers stays ready. Malone has mentioned it many times and his 2-2 start from deep tonight is just more evidence of exactly that. – 8:17 PM

Nuggets s open the game with consecutive stops, an Austin Rivers 3 and a Monte Morris mid-range for an early 5-0 lead. – 8:12 PM
TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Denver is without Murray, MPJ, Barton, Nnaji and Cancar tonight which means things are going to get weird.
Jokic will be Jokic, but Denver needs great games from Morris, Bones and Gordon tonight to beat the Mavericks in Dallas. – 8:12 PM

Nuggets announce Zeke Nnaji will not play tonight due to an ankle sprain. Nnaji played 18 minutes last night. Might mean some meaningful minutes go Bol Bol’s way if Michael Malone sticks with a 10-man rotation. – 7:59 PM

Warriors’ Stephen Curry and Nets’ Kevin Durant have been named Western and Eastern Conference Players of the Week, respectively.
Lakers’ Anthony Davis was a nominee in the West along with Luka Doncic (Mavs), Paul George (Clippers), Nikola Jokic (Nuggets) and Chris Paul (Suns). – 3:42 PM

Steph deserved POTW out West but it would’ve been a lot funnier if Jokic (averaging 24-14-10 last week) would’ve won it the week he got suspended. – 3:38 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Per PBP Stats, the Nuggets are allowing the 4th lowest shot quality in the league (expected eFG%) compared to the 7th lowest actual eFG% allowed.
I need someone big brained to tell me why their eFG% is going to regress, because I don’t think it will. At least not substantially. – 3:14 PM

New Wind Chimes
How quickly could Michael Porter Jr. return to the lineup? He’s been at Ball Arena daily, and the Nuggets are hoping he responds to treatment. I don’t get the sense that his MRI returned anything catastrophic.

Nikola Jokic currently has the highest single-season PER of all time. And it’s not close.
The gap between him (35.1) and the second player (Wilt Chamberlain at 32.1) is bigger than the gap between Wilt and the 45th player. pic.twitter.com/dswUcE5rf12:58 PM
