“He’s a student of the game” Mavs’ HC Jason Kidd praises Kyrie Irving after PG, Luka Doncic combined to score 51 points vs Spurs

The Dallas Mavericks finally won a game after incorporating two-star guards, Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic, into the roster against the San Antonio Spurs, and joy knows no bounds under coach Jason Kidd.

Following Kyrie’s arrival, the Mavericks won two games featuring only him before losing three in a row after the youngster Luka’s return to the roster before the all-star weekend. Thus, the separation of the two stars’ poor collaboration in court arose.

However, after winning the game against the Spurs, the head coach expressed his feelings about the duo’s stupendous instrumental performance.

What did Jason Kidd say about Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic?

The Mavericks dominated the visiting Spurs, winning 143-116 and sweeping the floor of American Airlines Center. The Irving-Doncic duo scored 51 points with eight rebounds and 16 assists.

Coach Kidd was impressed but did not hesitate to praise his new player after the eight-time NBA All-Star’s dominating performance on the hardwood. “He’s a student of the game. He’s fundamentally sound, understands how to use the pivot, understands how to create space without the dribble, and he’s the best dribbler in the league,” Jason said in the postgame conference.

“So, to be able to create space in small spaces, he’s unstoppable,” Kidd continued. Previously, he also expressed his enthusiasm after the 30-year-old point guard’s arrival. The little mountain appears to be strengthening bonds not only with teammates but also with the coach.

The Mavericks are the sixth seed in the Western Conference and are hoping for a long postseason run. The fans are particularly happy about observing the change of wind that was predicted.
