I just don't get that last 3 attempt by Luka, there was no chance it was going in. I hope his 3pt shooting wasn't fool's gold, because it's been really ugly in the past two weeks or so.

It's nice to see him having a great passing game.

The game is way too close. Everyone but Brunson is playing alright. I can't wait for Brunson to get back to the player he was.

Why does KP think he is Steph Curry? Don’t heave those 30 feet three point attempts.

The Mavericks have the most problems with trash teams.

We need to all come to the realization that this roster is just not very good

It's nice to see a team that tries hard defensively. Maybe RC should give them the belt.

JJ Reddick needs to shoot 60% on 3s to make up what he is giving up on the defensive side.

Unfortunately most of the other Mavs playing similar level of defense.

We can’t rebound in the fourth quarter.

We know KP and Brunson are both selfish who just look for their own scoring stats, but what the heck happened to Maxi's defense? Did he just forget? Or did covid really destroy it?

There is zero reason to pay Brunson he's a dime a dozen backup guard

these type of games i blame on coaches. i mean its important to not panic and be calm but sometimes you gotta show some emotion out there, not on the locker room, but on the sidelines to get your team amped up. RC no matter what is just this cool as if hes ok with whats happening.

This is absolutely stupid now. Knicks are getting almost every and1 call, Mavs got robbed of at least 3 of those so far.

Well this loss should settle it. I don’t know why some of you think this Mavs team is capable of any postseason success. We are primed for a 5 game series first round exit even if we get out of the play in

I think Carlisle is a decent coach. I would say he’s a good coach. The problem he has is the roster. He has two above average players in Luka and Porzingis and then there’s a big drop off to players like Hardaway and Brunson. DFS would get limited minutes on a lot of teams. Same goes for Maxi. Same goes for Powell. Same goes for Reddick. Same goes for WCS. Combine the talent drop off with the fact that Porzingis seems like he plays every third game and it’s a headache for any coach. Would Brad Stevens be more successful with this team? Would Steve Kerr? What about Nick Nurse? Or Doc Rivers? Or any coach, really? I’m very doubtful. Very doubtful of that being remotely true. Honestly, if you subtract Luka from this team you’re looking at bottom of the NBA talent. It’s cruel but it’s true. There’s no miracle worker who can save that.

This team’s three point shooting has been absolutely awful the past five or six games. They’re building brick houses out there.

It's always the same thing. Luka is 4/6 from 2 and 1/6 from 3, but he keeps shooting 3s...

Anyway, they can't get a stop, so what's the point.

Eveyone should check out the Around the NBA forum where Hollinger and Duncan did their coaches rankings
