2 underachieving teams so far this season, but I’m excited for WCS matching up against Jokic. Getting back to .500 would be really nice

This new defensive lineup has given me irrational confidence that the Mavs can beat anyone.

Agreed. Keeping Powell at 15 minutes or less is huge, like it was against Houston

Well that's an ugly start... And then the refs missing the kicked ball that turned into a 3.

This game already has the feel of a blowout loss. Defense is atrocious

Mavs should be looking to get anything they can for Richardson, I've seen enough to know he isn't a difference maker at all

Luka getting to the rim and not trying to score is one of the most depressing things you can watch this season.

The new rotation, taking out Luka in the first, isn't working so far.

Am I the only noticing that WCS has really bad hands? He keeps fumbling passes.

Luka is playing passively. How many times did he go to the rim since the start of the game?

The expectations for the team last year were inflated because of the media narrative that Luka "almost beat" the Clippers. But people forget really that the Clippers are a hot mess. Had the Mavs faced the Jazz or the Nuggets, it would have been an easy 1st round exit.

Doncic's passing has been off. Bad TOs and then that bad bounce pass on what should have been an easy layup.

31 points with 3m25s left in the 2nd... The offense can be so bad this year.

Bad shooting game again. Would settle for decent shooting, but its either **** or great. And not for 1, its like either all hits everything or noone hits anything

Why did they blow the whistle if the block happened before the time expired? Is that really how it works? Once you are blocked, it's a missed shot.

I don't get it.
