Kidd quotes: Said Derrick Jones Jr. has been huge for the culture and it doesn’t matter when they signed him in the offseason, said the team is all about adjustments and they don’t get too high or low, said they took a couple of days off completely to get some rest, said the coaches were busy the two “off” days to get the team ready for the game plan, said it was “huge” to get Lively in the lottery and it’s a credit to the front office, said Lively talks more than most rookies and they can see him becoming an anchor to the defense, said he doesn’t know if O-Max will be available at all (he’s only getting garbage time, of course), said Luka has been able to fight through his injuries to show he’s one of the best players in the world.

Mazzulla quotes: Said KP will go “significantly harder” for the practice after his full practice on Saturday, said they expect KP to be at his best, said they trust KP in any scheme and they expect the Mavs to test them, said they have to be great late in games because they saw the Wolves blow some leads, said the Mavs were excellent in non-layup twos and hopefully they cool off there, said no one possession looks the same for Dallas, said they are trying to create havoc in practice to prepare them for the Mavs.
