I always thought Van Horn would be my least favorite Mav, but Dwight Powell has far surpassed him

Are Richardson and Kleber really injured? Or more Carlisle stupidity? Does he get a bonus for the extra play in game? Is that why we sacrifice games for no reason?

After every game I don't understand why they don't give Burke's minutes to Green. Green is playing with energy every time he's out there and he can at least play some defense. I don't understand how RC can't see this.

Weird game so far. I don't like the way the team is playing, but they're still leading. They would have to be really atrocious in the 2nd half to lose this.

Luka played like the best player in the league for 5 minutes and then everything went south. I had high hopes after that start. I was already thinking 40pt+ game.

Green cannot do anything in offensive end.

He's not good, but we need more defense. I rather gamble on Green then keep playing Burke who's on and off offensively and always atrocious defensively. Burke will always give back what he makes anyway.

I wish Luka adjusted when his 3s isn't falling. Just keep attacking. Only 2 FTs so far.

Mavs still made many mistakes in the 3rd, good thing the Wizards are really really bad.

I love it that Luka is following the path of all time greats like Shaq, especially in FT shooting.

Doncic is tanking his season TS% with FT's. That's incredible.

I find it funny that in the thread on the general board, some Mavs fans acted like Luka FT shooting isn't a problem. What are they even watching? I don't care if he's always at 80% to start the year and ends up in the 70s, because he finishes in the 60s. He should be at 80% all the time given the shooter that he is. He shouldn't have months shooting in the low 60s.

I don't believe anyone from those 2 deserve to play.
