Mavericks vs. Nets: Dallas snaps the Nets’ 8-game winning streak

"About it. Dallas Mavericks, taking on a Brooklyn team JB Without Kevin Durant, we found out earlier Saturday, Kyrie Irving was out. James Harden had an incredible first half, but with only hard on the floor of the big Three was a game the Mavericks had to take. And they did today. Impressively in the second half. Yeah, it took him a while of the first half was No defense at all. And they took over in that third quarter holding Brooklyn 18 points. James Harden only gets four points the whole second half. And that was very impressive from Dallas, bouncing back from an ugly performance in Philadelphia on Thursday night where they turned it over 22 Times. Boy. Did they take advantage of the Brooklyn turnovers tonight? How about 32 points off of the 19 turnovers for Brooklyn. Good sign here for Dallas is they played much better basketball over the last few weeks, coinciding with eight practices they had last week. To get ready and play much better basketball than they did the first. Half of the season. Look at Don church goes with 27 points, six rebounds, seven assists. Kristaps Porzingis returned to the lineup. 26 minutes 10 of his 18 points came came in the critical third quarter. It wasn't vintage poor singles. But you saw some flashes. There is he tries to get back into form. Yeah, I think if you're Rick Carlisle, you're pretty happy with the way looked missed about a week with the sore back. Shot the ball extremely well. But again, he's got to really start taking advantage when he gets smaller guys on a Brooklyn even started Bruce Brown on him tonight. Hey, didn't take full advantage. He most of his points were outside the pain. I'd like to see him get a little more strength in this lower half and make people pay for putting small guys on. I'm getting the paint. Forced double teams, and that's going to create even easier three point shots for his teammates, Mavericks back to 516 and 16. They've won seven of their last nine and they went in Brooklyn, ending the Nets

And said the A C Milan stars comments were hypocritical and this is a soccer star Ibrahimovic. Used to play for the L. A galaxy. At the time when LeBron James was in his first season with the Los Angeles Lakers. Um in the soccer player criticized James on Thursday in an interview with Discovery Plus and Sweden, saying it was a mistake and doesn't look good. When James and other famous people get involved in politics. He was the same guy who said This is James response. He was the same guy who said When he was back in Sweden, because his last name wasn't a certain last name that he felt there was some racism going on. When he was out out on the pitch, James said. I speak very Educated mind speak from a very educated mind. So I'm kind of the wrong guy I'd actually go to because I do my homework. May see this soccer players saying, like, Look, stick to sports get out of politics. They were My take on this is like I just Yeah. I mean, I I understand the I understand the point people make on sports. It's like Hey, look. You know, sports and entertainers, singers. Mm hmm. There's some people to get upset about the fact when they weigh in the politics or whatever, but look, because people come to they watch a game to get away from politics or to get away from what's going on in Washington. They, You know, go to a concert because they want to get away from it. It's like this folks are human, too. Like they there's more of their lives and just shooting a basketball or, you know, singing into a microphone. And so I don't I never get too worked up about that stuff.
