  • I like how Monty takes responsibility, while Doc brushes it off.

    • @William Turner ah booker and cp0 were getting ABSOLUTELY FLAMED by EVERYONE in the nba community. My lord i still have flash backs of the amount of hate they got which was well deserving, embiid got hate but real fans knew it wasn't his fault and he was injured, book and cp3 got killed

    • And monty is the coach of the year cant believe they steal that trophy from Taylor jenkins he beaten the gsw without JA

    • Content +18 Barbie.Monster mejores. siempre en mi corazón. mañas no se la. Son unos de los mejores conciertos.💝💝

    • @Malcom Marcone With Harden playing like that? 🤨 Good luck to him 🤣

  • Let's not forget that almost EVERYONE thought the Suns were a lock to walk into the finals. You gotta respect Luka and this entire squad.

    • Yeah coming from the same country as luka, i can proudly say, when our backs are at the wall, when people say its over, we say, ita over until its over. We dont back down and loose hope

    • Hmm

    • @Vinnie

    • Absolutely, I expected them to learn from last year and level up and im a default Dubs fan from Scotland who is still sore at how the Sonics went out and left me teamless.

    • Stating the obvious and dap phishing like Derek. Its reedickulous.

  • “We all know the free throws ain’t falling” shaq is hilarious without even trying

    • Was looking for this comment 😂

    • @silly willie For some reason, Boban is a decent shooter and he has the largest hands in NBA history.

    • @silly willie that's cap, Kawhi and Yao Ming had hands comparable to, possibly bigger (in Yao's case) than Shaq's, and they are/were both excellent free throw shooters.

    • He's my uncle

    • Shaq is selling himself short. trust me when I tell you, Shaq hit a lot of clutch free throws for some reason... real Laker fans know what I'm talking about

  • 23-0 on 2nd chance points? That’s just lack of effort. Crazy to see a lack of effort from the home team in a game 7.

    • Luka took their souls. They gave up after his first few shots

    • for real man

    • Facts.💯

    • Embarrassing game. The fans should get their money back.

    • @Jared Hutchins wasn’t this bad though. The Phoenix was the number 1 seed.

  • "Jump hook ain't falling, drop step ain't falling we all know the free throws ain't falling" what a treasure you are Shaq

    • Shaq was too kind to my Suns, but thankfully he can speak from experience. Some nights even the greats can't bring it.

    • Hahaha I came looking for this comment 😂

  • People don't seem to understand how special Luka Doncic really is.He had Kawhi Leonard and Paul Goerge guarding him and he was cooking both those boys at the age of like 21. This man will be the face of league very soon.

    • @drgme00 cap…. He was cooking Kawhi whenever he had like 100 screens called on Kawhi 😂😂😂 look at the shooting % when Kahwi was guarding him. Luka literally shot under 30% so who was he cooking and when PG guarded him he was shooting under 40 😂😂😂.

    • i wouldnt go as far as cooking kawhi, kawhi won the match up

    • @lionel howell last year’s playoffs vs the suns. The nuggets got swept and Jokic had Porter and a better roster than this years Mavs. Luka is better than Jokic. Luka is a top 3 player right now. The Mavs had no Business even beating the suns a 64 win team and it was because Luka lifts his team to another level

    • @Carlos Bautista 1/2 a season!!

  • The last home beat down I can remember of this magnitude in the playoffs was the Hornets & Nuggets series, where the Nuggets absolutely spanked the Hornets by like 50 points in game 4...the Hornets who had...Chris Paul...what a coincidence.

    • @Black Pill Incel yes

    • That was when the Hornets were in New Orleans right?

    • The legend of CUPITINA.Uno snowquen's is my idol. Hes the person I aspire to be, hes my light of day..

  • It was not "one of those nights" by any means. That doesn't just happen to a team lie the Suns. I bet what their coach was trying to say was that they let all the praises during their regular season get to their head, underestimated their opponents and got way to brash and instead of changing their game plan and staying strong, they deformed into franticness once they realized what was happening. The same thing happened the previous game, this one was just worse.

    • *Block Living Room Outside Noise* with The legend of CURTAINS.Pics NICETOWN is my idol. Hes the person I aspire to be, hes my light of day.

    • I knew the Suns were in trouble in these playoffs when they had trouble getting by the Pelicans.

  • "Jump hook ain't falling, drop step ain't falling we all know the free throws ain't falling" what a treasure you are Shaq

  • But lets be real, it wasnt just "one of those nights" for suns. They got absolutly smothered on offense all night long, and it was exactly the same in g6. They basicly got no clean looks in first half (dallas eased off in 2nd half on defense with near 50 pt lead-makes sense). It wasnt like they were just missing open looks. Actualy I would bet Dallas missed way more good looks in first half than suns did, which is insane. Dallas looks pretty legit and have smashed suns suncs end of g2

    • It's their own fault, they wanted a "fun" team centered around perimeter guys and stopped developing Ayton. To make matters worse they brought in Chris Paul and forced Ayton into 100% screen for Paul and rim run just so Paul could put up illusion numbers. So you get into a series where the coach eventually says we're not letting Booker beat us and the other perimeter players got exposed for what they've always been, guys that can't consistently get their own shot. It's going to be a different ball game against GSW, if they try to double or trap Steph there will be 2 or 3 other guys on the court that can beat people off the dribble.

  • Agree with Barkley. Doncic injured when they played the Jazz was a blessing in disguise. It made the other players come out of their typical roles and bloom. Now they're all on fire.

    • Content +18 Barbie.Monster mejores. siempre en mi corazón. mañas no se la. Son unos de los mejores conciertos.💝

    • @Cade Pierren It's always like this, Utah always performs in the regular season, but always bear in mind that in a series, adjustments will be made.

    • I'd love to be Close-Up.Online is my idol. Hes the person I aspire to be, hes my light of day.

    • Good point. Especially Brunson

    • @Lamont Rose they took a vacation early 😂

  • Jason Kidd was criticized at the start of the season but 4th seed and going all the way to conference finals is already a very good performance and him and his staff deserve credit for it. The mavs defense improvement completely transformed this team.

    • I agree, but also a lot of the plan is, pass to Luca and if you don’t have an open shot or layup then pass it right back

  • “We all know the free throws ain’t falling” got me crying! 😂😂😂

  • It's sad to say this, but I think it's time for the suns to look beyond chris paul for their future...he's 38 next year, and I think they missed their chance to get him a championship. Reminds me of the reggie miller story.

    • @El Mulato Miller had 7ft 4 Smits as well as Antonio Davis and Dale Davis. He had an all around team around him. Please Miller Choked big time

    • @BallersKingdom That's true, I don't remember Phoenix being a playoff team or deep run contender until cp3 got there

    • Reggie Miller never choked he just didn’t got much help and he was too loyal so he didn’t went somewhere else

  • That's priceless. The score was tied at Halftime. Sun's 27, Luka 27. 🤣

    • 😭😭😭

    • And Dinwiddie almost matched them too with 21

    • 100%

  • Coach Monty a class act, win or lose. Even though his guys lost, he always try’s to build up his men even in defeat.

    • He’s a good coach.

    • The only person worth feeling bad for in this whole debacle

  • I’m a suns fan but give credit to Jason Kidd and I think we are witnessing Luka become the best player in the nba and great game by dineiddie and Brunson showed up and honestly I’ll be rooting for Luka and mavs to beat warriors, congratulations mavs fans go for it all!😊

    • Love to see Mavs vs Heat Finals Remake

    • That's a very good comment because I know it's a frustrating experience as a fan. I was pulling for the Mavs but I also respect the Suns. But I've been telling Suns fans for a couple of years now that they should have drafted Luka when they had a chance. Some of them have argued with me but I don't think any of them will argue again after this series.

  • Reminds me when the rockets beat Orlando with shaq. Once it was Kenny smith who stepped up, once Sam Cassel, once Robert horry. Any nba team is unstoppable in the playoff when you always have an extra guy who steps up

    • Those were some of the best role players right there.

    • same with Raptors in 2019. Fred one game. kawhi, siakam, lowry. just a well rounded team.

    • *Block Living Room Outside Noise* with The legend of CURTAINS.Pics NICETOWN is my idol. Hes the person I aspire to be, hes my light of day.

  • Luka will always get his, but the thing for me was how the guys who needed to step up for them actually stepped up in the biggest game, Spencer Dinwiddie and Jalen Brunson, they did exactly what they were supposed to do when it mattered the most, congratulations to the Maverick’s team and their whole organization for putting together a good team. Jason Kidd did and excellent job as a coach!

    • I agree the whole team functioned at 100 procent, and that brought luka to a new level, and in turn he elevated the team even better. There are mega talents out there but in the end basketball in a team sport

    • Lets go EAST!

    • Yep, the Mavs need to take a page out of the Spurs book and build around Luka like the Spurs built around Duncan. Parker and Ginoblli were really good solid guys who could provide a lot of spark on offense but the game always went through Duncan.

    • @Nixon Godwin-ogu *Jason Kidd is doing an excellent job as a coach.

    • @John Harris golden state isn’t all that bro

  • I'm so proud of my Mavs for real man we haven't been here since 2011 when we had my boy dirk and we punish the top seed in the west whom had the best record and we was the underdogs of course so on to golden state this should be a fun tough hard fought series let's go Mavs

  • "Jump hook ain't falling, drop step ain't falling we all know the free throws ain't falling" what a treasure you are Shaq

    • Coach Monty a class act, win or lose. Even though his guys lost, he always try’s to build up his men even in defeat.

  • I think a lot of people judged the decision the get Jason Kidd as the coach but it was such a smart move. Look at what he did with Giannis by outing the ball in his hands (even when everyone was telling him not to) Basketball is awesome 😫

    • @Scott lol I said the same thing the only thing you disagree with me about is “carrying” but have a nice day

  • "Going Down in Flames" is how this game will be remembered in Suns history. My goodness what a beatdown.

    • @Legend It was 46 at one point.

    • @Sac12 So says the racist. No, the Suns were simply beat down. You’re the one that said that Luka was carried. You said that your “two black warriors would get theirs”. Well they didn’t. They got beat and they were beaten badly. It has nothing to do with racism. Luka was the best player on the court against the Jazz and he was the best player on the court against the Suns. Booker and CP3 were outplayed. Jokic won MVP because he earned it. Personally, I think Luka was better than Jokic. Racism is a tool used by the mentally and emotionally weak and insecure and you are a racist. As long as you hold on to that racism you will remain a small person with a small mind and small ideas. Good luck with that.

    • @Sac12 Man relax not everything is a conspiracy just enjoy BB and not everything is black and white

    • ​@Jesse Mac Flamed out? They are a young team! and yea when you never won a championship in your entire franchise history you get pheonix fans chirping all year about the 1 seed hahaha clowns

  • This was "one of those games" that only happen once in a lifetime. When a team gets beaten so bad that the series should've been a sweep instead of going to the limit.

  • Let's not forget that almost EVERYONE thought the Suns were a lock to walk into the finals. You gotta respect Luka and this entire squad.

  • 23-0 on 2nd chance points? That’s just lack of effort. Crazy to see a lack of effort from the home team in a game 7.

  • Jason Kidd’s adjustments through out the series was outstanding!

    • @Karma Gurmey according to Ryen Russillo. Kid put together one of the best coaching staff during the off-season. The story on Kidd before hand was he felt threatened by other experienced nba coaches and would not put them on his staff.

    • Kidd should have won coach of the year, look at that roster..

    • Somebody got paid! Ain’t no way Luka did them dirty like that. 42 point loss? Ain’t no way.

    • Facts!!

  • "Going Down in Flames" is how this game will be remembered in Suns history. My goodness what a beatdown.

    • @photag216 He reminds me of Bird in a lot of ways. The high release, the high IQ, the trash talk, the competitive spirit. Watch some highlights from Bird, you may see what I'm seeing.

    • @photag216 Nah not really because he's white 😂 more of so the impact he has on his team and the way he processes the game in real time. Very poetic, they both play at their own pace.

    • @np cause he’s white, or cause his game? Height? Just curious. Love talking b-ball

    • @Patrick good for you to bring race into the topic. That's your only lame argument... Btw I think Popovich is overrated

  • "Going Down in Flames" is how this game will be remembered in Suns history. My goodness what a beatdown.

  • It's a good thing I love Luka because he almost single-handedly beat my favorite team Utah, and then he did it again to my second favorite team! He made two great teams question their existence! Well now I got no else because of Luka, and so I'm cheering for Luka.

    • I love Luka too but single-handedly? He missed half of the series for crying out loud.

  • Big Hoss actually undersold this one -- this is gonna haunt this Phoenix group for their whole lives, the off night was historic -- there must be more at play here

  • Jason Kidd was criticized at the start of the season but 4th seed and going all the way to conference finals is already a very good performance and him and his staff deserve credit for it. The mavs defense improvement completely transformed this team.

  • I was born and raised in Tempe, and the Suns were my team until 1995 (after beatdowns by the Rockets). The Mavs (I was living in DFW) have been my team ever since. The championship was great - with Dirk and Kidd. Nevertheless, I feel bad for the Suns franchise. I truly thought this was the year. Luka and the Mavs will win a championship (again) before the Suns.

  • As a hardcore fan 99% of the time I will not leave the stadium with my team being down big in a huge game to show loyalty. This game is the exception

  • The Mavs have been living by the 3. They’re shooting great but there’s not many teams that are going to out shoot the Warriors in a 7 game series. The Warriors are also one of the best rebounding teams in the league while Dallas is one of the worst. Tough to see Dallas winning this series.

    • @JoeYy C I agree they need a true playmaker. Tatum is an ok playmaker but it’s not really his strength. Either Tatum needs to improve that part of his game even more (he did good in the playoffs but still lots of room for improvement) or they need to bring someone else in to take on that role so Tatum can focus on scoring.

    • @Dominic hahah that you were. As a Celtics fan myself, I’m so devastated. But you’d probably agree on this one - they need a point guard. It’s so evident to everyone.

    • @JoeYy C I was right on the money about all of it 🤷🏻‍♂️

    • Except the Celtics lol 😆. But you were right on the money.

  • This is the best pre/post game show of all time...these guys are funny af...and Luka is ballin out big time...true superstar

  • "At least they got it over with quickly" Sir Charles . LoL

  • Back in the 80ies, 90ies, if a game 7 would start like that for a team it meant it was time to make some opposite lead player introduce to the hardwood 😁💪🏼

  • But lets be real, it wasnt just "one of those nights" for suns. They got absolutly smothered on offense all night long, and it was exactly the same in g6.

    • @Emmet Keane Yep just luck they made the finals 💀

    • @Jacob Siebert you ignoring that every team they faced had major injures including the bucks (Giannis) and still chocked 2-0 lead. Suns are frauds and have just been humiliated in a game 7

  • When you realize the only thing holding back Luka in the playoffs was Kawhi Leonard

  • Honestly, I don't remember him ever scoring so easily in Europe!

  • Barkley spitting the wisdom! Luka's injury revealed some true performers from the Mavs.

  • Reminds me when the rockets beat Orlando with shaq. Once it was Kenny smith who stepped up, once Sam Cassel, once Robert horry. Any nba team is unstoppable in the playoff when you always have an extra guy who steps up

  • This has to be the worst performance by any team in a game 7. The suns had no desire to win at all. Luka is the last person you want to play against in a game 7 averaging 38.8 ppg. Big ups to the Mavericks for this incredible win!

    • Granted it was not a blowout, the early game saw the Bucks play offense getting stymied in a way that they never have since the championship team had formed. Maybe with exception of the blowout game vs. Brooklyn last season. Funny how the runner-up to the chip absolutely got dominated by, like, individual hero ball. It took a team, and then, in the close-out game, some good team facilitating and the Greek Freak droppin' 50 in the Finals. It was the only thing that stopped them last year. Then Dallas, flying under the radar, steals a series. Seems suspect, no? The Suns and Bucks each only had about maybe 2 months of an offseason? Not even entirely true when you consider Booker, Middleton and Holiday all played in the Olympics as well. I think both were just running on fumes by this point. Should have had a mid-November start and eased into the October start in 2023. Too much way too fast. Crazy that either made it this far when you really think about it.

  • This was the most unconvincing non-believable analysis of a game I’ve seen in my life. The NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL along with Boxing has become entertainment for the “casual fan” and no longer the fan who may have actually played the aforementioned sports and appreciate the hard work and dedication the athlete no matter what sport or team affiliation underwent to reach the pinnacle of physical excellence to win for himself, his teammates and the city they represent. The NBA has done a disservice to real fans who know what they’re looking at in terms of strategy, preparedness and integrity. The 2 biggest teams in terms of size and length left in the playoffs mailed those games in yesterday and if you know the game and what you’re looking at there can be no denial! Did you know that if you pound the ball down in the low post against a smaller team eventually you will wear them down. Did you know that Deandre Ayton only played 17 minutes and when the coach was questioned about it, he said it was an internal issue. Did you know that the Bucks were 4 for 33 from 3 point range yesterday. In both instances the Sun’s and Bucks were the bigger teams. The Bucks could’ve beat the Celtics without Middleton because if you told me that Giannis would dominate the way he did in the series without having the skill set of Kevin Durant who only lacked the physicality of Giannis, I would have said no way. Giannis averaged 34pts, 15rebs and 7 assists in the 7 games vs the Celtics but for some unknown reason the Bucks coach elected to stay away 2pt shots when the game was close. I’m honestly not taking anything away from Luka Doncic’s game, it’s just that in my 52 years (47yrs watching basketball as well as playing), I’ve never seen someone that slow of foot, be able to dominate against much quicker players. Then again, I did watch Larry Bird growing up but Doncic is not Bird.

  • Luka did his thing tonight, but Spencer Dinwiddie and Jalen Brunson were also very aggressive from start to finish. The way the Mavericks played defense on Devin Booker and taking away the Suns bread and butter, the pick and roll game was outstanding game planning by Jason Kidd

    • Going to be fun watching those matchups throughout their careers.

    • Luka is the Michael Jordan of modern era

    • @Shayne Silva yea but at that point the suns were completely demoralized, they had already given up and the game was over. This was so Luka and Dinwiddie

    • @King Dino Dragonite yea but at that point the suns were completely demoralized, they had already given up and the game was over. This was so Luka and Dinwiddie

    • @Josh Clark Luka is always amazing. The difference this time is that his next best players actually showed up. Even though porzingis was Luka's most talented teammate, he was always injured so Luka had to do it all himself. This time, Luka actually had help

  • Let's not forget that almost EVERYONE thought the Suns were a lock to walk into the finals. You gotta respect Luka and this entire squad.
