The one where Luka kept dribbling around the CLippers and it looked like the Mavs just stood around, until he just went back to the 3pt line and tried another stepback 3... I just don't get it. I'm pretty sure there should have been some better opportunities in that possession.
I can’t tell if Luka has bad shot selection or if he has to take dumb shots because his teammates don’t know how to move without the ball. Maybe it’s a mixture of the two.
Yeah, a little bit of both. He had a really great game for sure, so you can't complain, but near the end, he dribbled the ball for 15 seconds, never getting past the 3pt line, never trying to do anything, and then just took a stepback 3 from 30 feet. What was that?
EDIT:I see a 3pt attempt at nearly 4min in the play by play and I thought it happened later in the game. The game was still within reach.
He just have a feeling he can hit everything yesterday, he exaggerated few times because of that.
Very interesting stat is that Mavs are 10-2 when Luka is shooting 10 3-pointers or more. And they're 3-4 when Luka is shooting 5 or less 3-pointers. Luka shooting a lot of 3s is good for Mavs. 3-pointers are essential for him, he averaged only 20 points, when he has taken 5 or less 3-pointers.
