The Mavericks have petitioned the league to change their name to the Allas Mavericks because they have no D.

Luka should attack more, as he just did - his shooting is off right now. Two badly missed airball 3's.

Trey Burke is very productive tonight.

Seems Luka is having a rough game yet he is 2 assists away from a triple-double.

I think he's having a good game tbh. Just a few sloppy moments. He haven't shot it much after the airballs and has attacked and scored well.

This team can score 120 points in three quarters and then look offensively challenged in the fourth.

FTs still a problem. The team will forever be mediocre in close games unless they fix it.

Why did Carlisle end the 4th with Curry instead of Burke?

Seth and Luka missing FTs in crunch time is what killed us.

Not the first time this has happened.
Sooner or later the narrative of "Luka missing FTs" is going to take hold.

A fun game for 3½ quarters resulting in frustrations.

Luka's shooting was garbage tonight. I hope he just needs adapting to game speed.
Also, did anybody else notice he has no lift on his FT's? Try shooting it flat footed, it is really hard. No idea why would he shoot it like that.
