Luka Doncic wants more daytime games, Jaden Hardy’s first bucket and more

The Dallas Mavericks dominated the Knicks in a Saturday matinee on December 3. The game started at 11:30 a.m. CT or 12:30 p.m. ET at Madison Square Garden, and superstar Luka Doncic led by 30 points in a 21-point win. Dallas blitzed the Knicks in the third quarter with hot shooting and strong defense to build an insurmountable lead.

Number 77 was asked if he could play day games during his post-match press and he didn’t hold back on how much he was enjoying them. Luka said he “loved her” before giving this answer as to why he enjoyed her so much.

“I have a lot of free time. It’s 3pm right now, til the night… I love her.”

Doncic added that he was planning to go out to dinner after the team’s return to Dallas, before noting that everyone should make sure Adam Silver sees it. He likes the extra free time and he was also a fan of the fact that people in Europe could watch him play. The Mavs will get a lot of day games while Luka is in Dallas, so number 77 has nothing to worry about.

The blowout game provided head coach Jason Kidd with an opportunity to face rookie second-round pick Jaden Hardy in the final seven minutes. The 20-year-old was thrilled as he scored his first NBA bucket on Saturday afternoon at the world’s most famous arena.

Coach Kidd noted that Luka Doncic presented the ball to Hardy in the dressing room after the win. He dominates the G League so it was amazing to see the 20-year-old rookie come into play and score his first NBA bucket. Hardy finished the game with five points and a rebound in seven minutes.

Elsewhere, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are getting closer to returning to the court. Both trained on Friday and will be on the Clippers’ upcoming road trip. Leonard has only played five games this season and has missed six straight games with an ankle injury. PG13 has missed seven games in a row with a hamstring injury.

The Kings dominated the Clippers without their two stars on Saturday night as LA fell to 2-4 after Leonard sprained his ankle. The Clippers are 13-11 on the season and seventh in the Western Conference, despite missing a lot of time from their two superstars.

Neither team wants to face Kawhi and PG13 in the playoffs, but can the duo stay healthy? They have been plagued by injuries since their merger in 2019. Both players are close to making a comeback, but will they stay on? It’s something you see as the regular season progresses.
