Locked On NBA – Daily Podcast On The National Basketball Association

Mar 27 2023 • 40 mins

Jackson Gatlin (@JTGatlin) is joined by Nick Angstadt (@Locked On Mavericks) to discuss why the Dallas Mavericks have completely unraveled this past week, losing four straight games including back-to-back losses against the Charlotte Hornets, dropping them out of the Western Conference Play-in picture. What is the main reason for Dallas' recent struggles? What's been going on with Luka Doncic? Is Kyrie Irving the problem, either directly or indirectly, or is it deeper than that? What needs to happen for things to get back on track? Then Joe Mullinax (@Locked On Grizzlies) stops in to break down how Ja Morant is reintegrating himself to the Memphis Grizzlies after spending time away from the team to address his off the court issues and how the Grizzlies were able to stay competitive without their star. How has Ja looked since returning to action? Why did he come off the bench for the first two games back? How were the Grizzlies able to maintain success despite missing their star player? Lastly Darian Vaziri (@Locked On Clippers) swings by to talk about the impact of LA Clippers star Paul George being sidelined for the rest of the regular season, but with the hope he could return sometime during the first round of the NBA Playoffs. What do the Clippers miss the most by losing George? How much pressure is now on Kawhi Leonard without PG? Who will head coach Ty Lue lean on to replace George in the starting lineup? What's the latest on Norman Powell's injury? #Mavericks #Grizzlies #Clippers Subscribe to the Locked On NBA YouTube Channel: Locked On NBA Follow/Subscribe/Listen Anywhere: linktr.ee/LockedOnNBA Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! | Offers: lockedonpodcasts.com/offers Built Bar – Built Bar is a protein bar that tastes like a candy bar.
