Jimmy Butler offered baskets to every teammate20 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
The 30-year-old didn't want his teammates to remain rusty... So he gifted them baskets
The Dallas Mavericks were on a roll in their last three games, scoring 142, 137 and 143 respectively, but bumped into a wall yesterday in the Los Angeles Clippers, a team that only allowed 99 points from Rick Carlisle’s squad.
Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis had a terrible game shooting the ball, as they combined for 8-27 in Field Goal, with only 3-16 from three-point range. The luxury of having Patrick Beverley, Paul George and Kawhi Leonard to guard Doncic was something that played a role in the Slovenian bad game, as he clearly left the arena frustrated, not even talking to the media. Paul George had himself a first quarter, scoring 17 points, giving the Clippers a seven point lead after the first twelve minutes. It was notorious that Doc Rivers team had gone up a notch for this game, supported by their defense, the discrepancy in field goals made made a difference, as they ended the half with 23 FG’s made against the 11 FG’s from the Mavericks.
Kawhi finished with 28 points and 8 rebounds and Paul George with 26 points and 6 steals in a 114-99 win at American Airlines Arena. They’re starting to look scary together, as the team is 4-0 when both play and 0-2 when neither takes the court. Another interesting stat from the Dallas Mavericks perspective is that before the loss they were standing at 1583 wins and 1583 losses as a franchise. They now have a negative record after the loss against the Clippers.
