Must win game.

It would be nice to see Luka pad his 3pt%

They give up a lot of points

Must win is correct.
Chicago has two wins and both came against Triple Double Russ and the Washington Wizards.

Rick Carlisle, quite eloquently: "We haven't done s---. We really haven't. We've showed up in two out of five games."

I believe it's even worse. They have showed in 1 game. Last night it was more about Miami playing incredible bad.

I know the Mavs are 2-3 and the D has looked like crap at times, but this is a good stat.

Just saw it. Just rest? They didn't say anything.

Pretty disappointed. I hope they still win... I thought the team needed that win.

EDIT : Just saw left quad contusion. I guess it's a wink-wink to give him a rest on the back to back.

Am I the only one kind of impressed with WCS? I mean he’s not great at anything. It his game has improved since he left Sacramento. He has a pretty good looking J from mid-range and working on his 3pt game. Not great but I’m impressed.

Brunson looking good as the starting PG.

People asking why Boban is not playing more, the last possession was a perfect example why. Lavine played PnR and Boban instead of closing out on him with 2 seconds left, he just stood there and actually backtracked towards the rim leaving Lavine completely open on the 3pt line. Huge mistake speacially because Lavine just had almost all of Bulls points. Boban is simply bad on defense unless there is a perfect matchup where Mavs can take advantage with him guarding the rim and nothing else.

Luckily though, he is also almost unguardable on offense so.. :lol:

Boban is a statue out there. No lateral movement and can’t/won’t step out to guard anyone on the 3. He does have a role though and is not a bad player overall. I think he’s getting the exact amount of minutes that he’s getting.

Brunson is coming for Luka's job. :)

Imagine if ge played that way from the bench in the ither games.

I guess the Bulls are pretty bad at defending the PG spot.

I feel like we are all waiting for J-Rich to show us what he did in preseason.


Hurts too that Curry is killing it in Philly

This is true but remember Curry is playing with a fully healthy squad. The 1 game Embiid missed Curry didn't do anything.
