Apparently a 30-0 run isn’t good enough to win a game anymore 

The Dallas Mavericks made NBA history by having the longest scoring run ever when they scored 30 unanswered points against the Oklahoma City Thunder. That beat a 29-0 run by the Cavaliers in 2009, a 28-0 run by the Mavericks in 2021 and a 28-0 run by the Knicks in 2017. The only difference between today’s achievement and the other three on that list is that Dallas still lost the game today.

It was a wild run that turned a 111-87 deficit into a 117-111 advantage, but they unfortunately faltered down the stretch. Luka Doncic had himself a game with 36 points, 15 rebounds, 18 assists, two steals and two blocks and saw two other teammates score at least 20 points.

Man, that kind of a loss has got to sting. It took every ounce of their will to make that run, and it’s a little understandable that they may have run out of gas at the end.

The Warriors blew another big lead in Draymond Green’s wrestling debut

After blowing a 24-point lead to the Sacramento Kings in their final game of the in-season tournament, the Golden State Warriors bounced back to beat the LA Clippers 120-114 at Chase Center. The rematch came a couple of days later and unfortunately for the Dubs, things did not go their way. They led by as much as 22 points before a dagger three from Paul George gave LA their first lead of the game with nine seconds left and turned out to be the game-winner.


It’s not easy to blow two leads that big twice, much less in the span of a week. Well, we at least got to see Draymond Green’s wrestling debut, where Terance Mann was the latest victim of a nonsensical action from the increasingly volatile Green.

Considering that he just came back from a five-game ban, it will be interesting to see if Green receives any further punishment. All eyes are on him after his violent choke on Rudy Gobert and it didn’t take long for him to do something reckless again.

De’Aaron Fox’s new career-high in assists gave the Kings a big win over the Nuggets

De’Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings are continuing to compete in the loaded Western Conference and their latest victory came at the expense of the defending champions. The victory pushed them to fourth place with an 11-7 record.

The Denver Nuggets were missing Jamal Murray but they showed last week that even their bench can beat a full-strength team like the Clippers – and Nikola Jokic still had 36 points, 13 rebounds and 14 assists.

Fox led the way with 26 points, four rebounds, a career-high 16 assists, three steals and a block in what has started to become the norm for the star point guard. He’s a walking bucket with an unstoppable midrange game, and he’s now added an improved three-pointer to his arsenal. 

Fox is shooting 37.1% from three on 8.3 attempts per game and if he keeps this up then defenses will have zero answer for him. If he can’t be left open at the perimeter, then he can drive at will and open up more opportunities for his teammates, which was evidenced by this game.

Malik Monk, Fox’s best friend and former Kentucky teammate, continues to play well in his contract year as well. Monk matched Fox’s 26 points and also had three rebounds, four assists and two steals on an efficient 9 of 14 shooting.
