Can't defend can't rebound can't make free throws, this team is a long way from contender

Welp. Looks like this is over. The Mavs suck at home lol.

The bench needs to play better next game. Also we really need that one good KP game.

Actually, maybe Luka could, if he could hit his FTs.

Kleber, WCS, DFS, THJ, Brunson all playing well. The one guy who's lack of effort has stood out to me is KP. J Rich has been a bit of a non-factor too but only 16 min

KP sucks. The team hasn't showed up in the 2nd half. People got way too excited about being hot from 3, when the law of average said the Clippers would need to shoot better at some point. They were getting good looks.

DFS hasn't been playing well two games in a row.

Luka has his 3rd subpar 4th quarter in 3 games so far. (EDIT: Two late 3s I guess, if only he could hit his FTs)

Incredibly disappointing loss after the first 7 minutes of the game.

Pressure is on the Mavs in game 4. Honestly, Carlisle needs his ass kicked for sitting Luka during that run. The bench isn’t strong enough to sit him, but he has to get rest. I get it, but where are the defenders on this team? Also, someone lanky and athletic like Aaron Gordon would make a huge difference in this series. Josh Richardson is not that guy.

This is why we need to move KP and not give Timmy a big deal.

Honestly, I couldn't believe that he put him on the bench. Just pull away while you are hot.

It was a stupid decision, just change your substitution pattern.

I posted earlier in this thread that THJ is overrated. He’s too one dimensional. I definitely wouldn’t resign him either. He’s a fantastic shooter but he is a net negative on the defensive end and can’t create his own shot. Don’t give him huge money when he can’t defend like Klay Thompson, for example.

The KP gamble is looking like a complete failure. Is he injured or does he just not care anymore. He needs to go.

Doncic should have passed on that last possession. You can't win alone, just show your team that you keep trusting them. I don't see the point of shooting 3 times in a row when there's nothing to win.

The stage was set, close game, Luka got very close and KP shot us out of the game, THJ is an amazing shooter, he's below average in finishing at the rim, he tried to be the saviour with driving when the lead was gone.
Learn from your mistakes, chin up, and win the next the game.

I hate to say it, because I'm not even joking, but KP looked like he was here in body only. His mind was still back at that LA strip club :noway:

Of course it's a failure, it was a bad gamble to begin with. When you give a max contract, you can gamble on health or potential, not both at the same time. KP wasn't that great of a player in NY to deserve a max. They were hoping for his potential to pan out, but at the same time hoping he would stay healthy. It's just stupid.

Statistically, KP had his best offensive season. Maybe we can sucker someone to give us something for him.

I'm not that disappointed the Mavs lost. I am disappointed they let the game get completely away from them to the point the last 3-4 minutes were not even competitive. Have to be better than that in game 4.

THJ was 0/8 from 2... Inconsistent you say?

Luka 7/13 from both 3 and FT. Pretty funny.

Whoever wins Game 4 will win the series.
