Kanter looking like an All Star. Refs letting them play down low.

KP is a three slot talent on a true contender.
Blame Cuban and the ownership for their lack of acquiring talent like we did 15 and even 10 years ago on realgm.

At 0 for 6, KP should still get touches around the rim, but he's not getting them.

The team is only down 4 and I'm feeling more angry about it than I should. The way they've played is really frustrating. They can't defend at all, Richardson was way too close to Lillard at the end, it was obvious Lillard was going to draw the foul. The Blazers had 7 seconds to score and they gave up an easy 2 in 4 seconds. Organize your defense!

They gave up way too many second chance points and had way too many dumb TOs

KP can't even score on Lillard. His only move is to turn around and shoot.

I don't get it with KP. He gets the switch on Dame in PnR and instead of closing out on him, makes 2 steps backwards and leaves him a wide open shot. Does he have no clue who is he guarding? That was happening entire 1st half.

Mavs are shooting lights out but it will take more than Luka to defeat these Blazers. They have to play much better perimeter defense and they can't let freaking Kanter abuse them under the rim.

How does Luka have 1 rebound on the boxscore btw? I tuned in with about 5min left in the 2nd quarter and I swear I saw him collect 3-5 rebounds alone in that time frame...?

I think he grabbed just one and another one was tipped by Powell(?) first.

I know Luka can't do everything, but he needs to be more present on the defensive boards. He started letting his teammates rebound more, but they're not good at rebounding.

He definitely ended with more than 1 but i think a few of them were tipped around first.

Rick is going to play Luka for 15 minutes straight again, isn't he?

If they had called elbows on Shaq like they are on KP, he would have fouled out of every single game.

KP should get the ball up higher though.

Are they still going to let Luka play 15 minutes in a row?

Not as much as the Trent Jr one that shouldn't have been in.

Its so frustrating to see the Mavs shoot an outside shot and not a single player cuts toward the basket for a chance at a offensive rebound.

THJ shoots much better when he starts then when he comes off the bench.

Porzingis is totally worthless and his inefficiency is going to cost us the game
