Losing to Billy Donovan and a 1 man team that are Bulls must be some kind of next level embarrassment. Even then Brunson had to have a career night just to keep them close.
What do you expect? They start three scrubs. Powell, THJ, and DFS aren't even part of the 8 man rotation for a contender.
THJ has become incredibly inconsistent and streaky. He needs Luka to feed him those open looks. I expected more of him tonight though. DFS is fine for what he does.. But as you probably saw, they couldn't execute properly two straight 2v1 fast breaks. Even Bulls announcers were shocked.
THJ needs to go to the bench because they need someone to provide the spark. Maxi is obviously not that type of player and they got rid of Curry and JJB.
Moving forward, DFS, Luka, KP, Maxi, Jrich is realistically by far the best 5 man lineup Mavs can have on the floor. 2 bad Rick probably won't ever start them together.
