Dirk Nowitzki on Salah Mejri's issues with referees: "Sometimes you've got to just keep playing, man. You've got to keep playing through some stuff and at times bite his lip. That's really all there is to it. Sometimes he might get a tough call. Just swallow it and keep competing. When he's out there, he's always playing so hard and usually gives us a great lift off the bench. We want him out there, we love him out there, and he's got to find ways to stay out there."

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle shouted "Get the f--- outta here!" when Salah Mejri tried to explain himself after getting ejected for arguing a call. "As I look at it now, he's the only guy that was a negative," Carlisle said, referring to Mejri being minus-2 in 10 minutes during the Mavs' blowout win over the Wizards. "Maybe it worked out all right. Salah and I have a thing going about the officials. He just can't help himself; I think he feels like he can reason with those guys. We're going to continue to work with him."

Bradley Beal exchanged trash talk with Dennis Smith Jr. throughout the game but said the Mavs rookie earned his respect. "He's a true competitor. He's an elite point guard. He's going to be one for years and years."
