He had Melli, Burke, Powell as targets. Who would be your best choice here? :D ... Burke and Powell shouldn't see 2 minutes of playing time on a playoff team EVER. And as predicted, even KP is totally useless so far. Not much going on for the Mavs.


Not sure what you are saying. He should still hit their hands.

His passes to Powell in the middle wasn't even close to get to him. And then his inbound pass was incredibly sloppy and behind the player. I thought he was maybe trying to throw it to KP.

And ofc, Burke is still in the game.... Jesus christ i want Rick back.

They're playing too relaxed and sloppy with out RC glaring at them. He would've bench KP at this point lol.

This is something that in general gets overlooked way too much by the Mavs front office. They don't have a clue how much Luka carries this team if they are satisfied with the lineups... Just a quick look at advance stats and they would notice that only Jokic has been doing more.

Not a pretty game, but at least the Mavs got the lead back.

They turned it around pretty fast. They played well for about 6 minutes in the first half and it was enough to take the lead.

Let's hope they come out with the same energy.

not maxi or KP have been willing to do what it takes at their position.. did u guys see that possession where NYK got like 3 offensive rebounds.. theyre not willing to body up opponents and not even helping luka with the basic things like setting a good screen. we all know luka is one of the best guys to utilize a debilitating screen. thats why ive been adamant at signing a pf/c whos not afraid to get injured and is just willing to sacrifice his body. The FO is acting like our frontcourt is top level or championship material already, which it isnt, at the same time our opponents are adding things to improve roster.. LAC added cousins, Portland added hollis jefferson, pelicans added thomas, denver boosted their roster.

KP is having a terrible night. Can't hit any shots farther than 2 feet away. Same number of turnovers as rebounds.

Mostly missing open shots on offense, but some trying to do things above his ability. No idea what is going on with the rebounds. He should be dominating the glass against NYK.

Lol. The team can't convert on Luka's passes. Two dunks and an easy layuo missed.

I was looking at it, and Luka was on pace to easily get to 5000/1500/1500 this year... Not so easy anymore.

Porzingis is about as soft as they come in the paint.
I understand getting intimidated and bullied by most of the centers in this league in the paint...but by Noel?
Give me a break.

I'm more content with KP playing outside the arc than playing in the paint. He looks clumsy as hell tonight.

Yeah, if anyone needs a bruiser frontcourt sidekick it's that guy.

Did Luka do something in the 3rd? A couple of passes?

-17. Yeah, the rotations don't benefit him, but still.
