And welcome back in a way have sorted out the technical difficulties, and we've got the game back running here on SportsCastrs.
So it is the end of quarter number one, and it's the Dallas Mavericks lead the Portland Trailblazers by a score of 18 13 and the second quarter underway as Trent brings it up for Portland over Teoh Nurkic.
Nor gets back to trend.
Trent finds Rodney Hood.
Trent now has a right wing perimeter.
Thank you, Nick for joining the broadcast.
Much appreciated Nurkic from working his way inside, and he gets the first basket of the quarter as its 18 15 3 point ball game.
Once again, we apologize for the technical difficulties in that first quarter, but Christian got it back up running, so hopefully will be good for the rest of the stream.
And that's another great assists down low.
And finishing it off with the dunk is Willie Cauley Stein, 22 15 Trent bringing it up for the Portland Trail Blazers, and he takes a shot from the right elbow and that rims L.
The Dallas Mavericks down the other way here.
A Spinny Smith Finney Smith taking it in front of the Trail Blazers bench and a foul is called, Rather, the Mavericks bench.
Excuse me, Thank you, Isaac, for joining back in a swell.
Got it back up, running here a minute into quarter number two passes, inbounded to Cali.
Stein. He hasn't the core over to J. J.
Everything is good right now. Isaac.
I don't know how much longer that will be, but hopefully the rest of the game.
And Maria, it's a deep to it's a seven point lead.
That's the biggest lead of the game for the Dallas Mavericks.
Meanwhile, Trent finds Nurkic at the baseline.
Holly Stein, with walk down defense.
Nurkic cannot put up a shot.
Instead, he passes and outside trend will pull up from downtown that rims out Cauley.
Stein controlled the rebound up ahead to Baria, Maria to the corner.
Now it's right, right back outside.
The shot clock winding down.
Maria, spin around. Move.
Getting in the lane.
He's gonna have to put up a shot sooner than later, and he does.
So that's no good on the layup.
All right, now here comes Little Cross Court to Trent.
Trent has it along the right wing.
And that's turned over the Mavericks trying to punish them in transition.
The layup rolls out.
Both teams having some trouble finishing their layups, that's for sure.
All right, it's now in the corner with little I know.
Yes, You're absolutely right, Nick.
You got you gotta finish after Rim.
It astonishes me in modern day MBA.
How many of these guys can hit all these three pointers? But then they can't make They can't make their layups.
I guess that's what the modern game is.
And Finney Smith is now fouled going up for the shot.
At least it appeared like a, uh like it was a shooting fell 22 to 15.
And yes, indeed, he'll head to the line to shoot 23 15 to go in the first half.
I am outside in my backyard, a special occasion here, cause it's a beautiful day in Massachusetts.
Spend in the seventies all day, so I had to take advantage of the nice weather.
First free throw, no good.
Got to make your free throws to Maria right Cleaver and Kali Stein all coming out.
So a fresh four into the game including Don Church and Hardaway.
And meanwhile, the Trailblazers put in Mukalla, Mariza, Anthony and White Side.
So Portland getting their starters back out on the floor.
We'll see if they can make an impact here in the final three minutes of the second half assed that free throw is made one or two from the line, right there for right.
It's finally outdoor broadcasting weather.
Yes, it is indeed, Nick.
I wish I had a TV out here.
So when I commentated, you know, actual realize sports games I could I could broadcast outside.
Here is Dawn Church over to Finney Smith.
Now it's Powell, top of the key for Zynga's trying to work his way into the into the paint, and Carmelo Anthony is going to be called for the foul.
That is the dream.
Yes, TV in the kitchen bathroom and on the porch.
You got it? Yeah, exactly. You can.
You can watch sports anywhere.
That would be the true dream.
So Porzingis at the line for two shots, 2 42 to go in the first half of this game, taking place in Portland at the motive Center on.
He drains the first free throw.
Seth Curry will come into the game.
Finney Smith making way.
Also, Tim Hardaway will enter as well.
Tim Hardaway Jr.
McCullum and Hood come out Lillard and excuse me, Lillard and McCollum coming in would come in.
One of them coming out didn't catch the other one.
But anyways, for Zynga's makes the second free throw, It's an eight point advantage for Dallas.
A lot of these two K games I've commentated, you know, there's there's been furious second half runs and comebacks.
Thank you, Christian for joining the broadcast.
Much appreciate a reason wide open from three and no good but white side there for the offensive rebound and puts it in for two nicely done by Hassan Whiteside.
That's what he's there for, doing his job on the offensive glass.
Now Don Ships trying to respond the other way passes it off.
Now it's kicked outside.
Teoh forcing us pick set for Zynga's is gonna take a rare three point that's off the mark.
Not surprisingly, here is Trevor reason he has a top of the key.
Now he goes to Damian Lillard, alert backs his way up shot clock at 12.
Oh, great pass inside and McCollum did the rest.
Just like that, it's a four point game.
Basketball, after all, is a game of runs.
Trail Blazers Putting some pressure on the Mavericks here.
That was a beautiful fast.
It was indeed Donncha job.
Powell hasn't left wing perimeter.
Now it's Seth Curry Curry, top of the key shot clock down to four seconds to the left wing.
It goes to for Zynga's.
He's gonna have to shoot it.
He gets it off in time.
No gun, but he gets his own rebound.
And no one was even in the area to contest nicely done by Kristaps Porzingis, who has been making quite the impact here in the first half.
Another great pass in the lane.
Damian Lillard this time was not the playmaker but the finisher as he laid it in for two buckets left and right.
It's good from Lucca. Dawn.
We're under a minute to go in the second quarter, but don't rule out another.
10 points combined.
Damian Lillard gonna launch from downtown.
