Such a waste of offense. He will usually pump fake from 3 even though no one is close to him and then drive toward the defender, going nowhere... Can someone tell me that it's not how a pump fake works?

I'm just happy he is faking and not shooting.

The fascination Luka has with terrible 3s is unreal.

He should only take 3s when they leave him alone and dare him to shoot. But he wants to get back to his normal game. I understand the feeling.

He hit 2 3s, so he had to keep going until he satisfied his urge for missed 3s.

Still an inefficient game from him right now. 7/19 FG, 2/5 FT... I can't wait for him to have a great game. I honestly thought he would go for 35/10/10 on good efficiency in this one.

Luka seems to be more successful on step-back 3s when he challenged.

Why can't Mavs play defense like that every game?

Powell actually outplaying WCS tonight. So that's something. Unfortunately its because WCS is playing like he needs a drug test. But Powell did catch some rebounds.

Heat can’t hit the broad side of a barn tonight.

Rick's player rotations are still suspect. No need for Heat to come close... yet here there are on the run against Mavs 2nd unit.

You would think Rick Carlisle has coached through enough choke jobs to know better than to let this team take their foot off the gas pedal.... but here we are

Powell is grabbing some boards but 2 points in 28 mins and offensive is your best attribute?

Same team as last year. Mavs having fourth quarter difficulties in scoring.

We got it now. Maxi’s three was big. The game should have never got close though.

Defense was outstanding for 3 quarters and then terrible.

Rick needs to do a much better job of keeping these guys focused

Why the heck are they shooting it with 10+ seconds on the clock?! Just gave up two quick threes in transition.

1. Could be me but I wish they played a little faster
2. More Johnson I've always loved this guy (in shape Boris Diaw)
3. Need more from Richardson still

Bad game for both teams. Miami a bit worse.

Lol... what a bad possession and bad 3 at the end. Doncic almost turned it over too right before with a bad pass.

Good defense. The offense was bad. I hope the team can find the way to be good at offense and defense at the same time. Mavs were somewhat lucky that the Heat had an off night.

I'll take the win, but the way they've played on offense isn't encouraging at all.
