Total sh*t effort on the defensive end all night and not at all surprised they lost

Maxi's three to tie went in and out twice. Ugh!

RC should have sit Luka. I don't get it. 2 games ago, he doesn't sit him and Luka is too tired in the clutch. 1 one game ago, he sits him at the end of the 3rd and Luka kills in the clutch. Today, he still let's him play 15-16 minutes in a row... Didn't he score just 6pts in the 4th? We need him fresh to close games, because counting on Richardson two possessions in a row to get a bucket makes no freaking sense. I don't understand what RC is doing. Sit him the last 4 minutes of the 3rd.

Such a frustrating ending to this game with some really bad misses.

This game falls on Richardson and Porzingis playing like ass all night. Our stupid ass front office won’t address the real issues either so we are just doomed to be a play-in team

This should've easily be a win, very very frustrating.

Poor rebounding in the fourth quarter cost us a winnable game.

I know Luka was the best player, but he was 11/14 from 2, he was able to get the rim easily, but decided to spam 13 threes (12 if you don't count the heave)... Half of his shots don't have to be 3s every game. He's way too in love with his 3.

I won’t be surprised at all when Luka leaves these do-nothing losers behind one day. Pathetic

Great defense by Luka and 3 Mavs players couldn't grab that rebound at the end. And if anyone is interested to know, Luka played for 16 minutes straight since the 3rd Q. No one else was being able to step up or do anything on offense in the 4th.

Poor game for KP. JRich was even worse. He worked on defense, but didn't accomplish much. Couldn't hit anything.

5 offensive rebounds for the Mavs. 13 for the Blazers. Those 8 extra possession were the game. The Mavs don't even try for offensive rebounds on many possessions, so it has to be something the coaches teach. I assume to prevent transition baskets, but it seems like they could afford to let one guy at least try.

Right, but at least Mark Cuban likes the team he has :roll:

Someone tell me why Drummond isn’t here again?

Second straight game that KP was worthless.

Because NBA execs believe he wants to sign with a contender. If that doesn't work out, Mavs are prepared to offer 2nd pick and maybe a little something more but that is probably not going to happen. One of the top teams will surely take him.

I'll ask this again as a Detroiter what do you all see in Drummond and how in the world do you think he and KP are going to work in the front court?

I still can't get over the fact that RC let Doncic play 16 minutes in a row. It's like he isn't learning from his past mistakes. It's basic, the team needs Luka at his best and he can't be at his best if he doesn't has some rest. He didf the same thing last year.

21pts in a quarter against a bad defensive team...

Rebounds, rebounds, and more rebounds.

Porzingis is a 5’5 man trapped in a 7’3 body. Get someone here that isn’t afraid of the painted area of the court and it HAS to translate to better basketball than this awful display

I would give all those Powell and WCS minutes to him and see how it goes. He surely can't be worse, right? Plus are people not aware that he is expiring? And haven't you seen how Kanter bullied KP? Drummond is a lot stronger...
