Still about half an hour or so from Mavs vs Jazz in SLC. Probably most are aware but if you aren’t, this is an exclusive ESPN telecast so we will not be on tonight. There is of course Mavs radio broadcasts w/ @Chuck Cooperstein and Brad on @theeagledallas & Victor Villalba on @ZonaMX99110:15 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
Josh Green has cleared protocols and has rejoined the team in Utah. He will not be active tonight. But Jason Kidd said he will resume a spot in the rotation, presumably Monday at Portland. – 10:14 PM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
Had a serious record-scratch moment when @David Locke, in the pregame media availability with Quin Snyder, began, “Mike Conley is positive …” then paused for half a beat before adding “in the plus/minus category for 13 straight games.” Thought for a second I’d missed some big news. – 9:00 PM

De’Aaron Fox (health & safety protocols) is questionable for Sunday’s game vs. Grizzlies. Alex Len, Davion Mitchell and Neemias Queta are ruled out. – 8:34 PM
Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
What a Christmas gift to hear Doris Burke commenting on this Suns-Warriors game instead of the absolutely terrible and unprepared Jeff Van Gundy. Does her homework, knows the players and how the teams play. Van Gundy just walks in, wings it and babbles. Elevate Doris to No. 1. – 7:55 PM
Eddie Sefko @ESefko
We’re ready for more Christmas basketball. Mavericks are at the Jazz. At least, some of them are. This afternoon, it became known Dorian Finney-Smith is doubtful with a non-COVID-related illness. I think Karl Malone still lives in the Utah area. Maybe a phone call is in order. – 7:47 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
As much as I’d like to see the Mavericks in thr West Finals, give me 7 games of GS-PHX and I’m OK. The quality of those two teams, and esp as how they match up vs each other is fabulous – 7:29 PM

Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Visited with the Suns recently and Monty Williams said he feels “somewhat responsible” for Deandre Ayton not getting his max extension done, like Doncic and Trae Young. “From a personal perspective, I feel like I failed him.” sports.yahoo.com/the-suns-have-…5:45 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
Merry Christmas
Many have asked for the radio call of Jordan Clarkson’s dunk v. Minnesota. pic.twitter.com/Q0jGa1Oten5:28 PM

Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
More bad news for Mavs who list DFS as doubtful for tonight in Utah with a non CoVid related illness. 9:40 tip @theeagledallas5:12 PM
