Duncan Robinson & Luka Doncic. They help each other.

You ever seen DFS or Maxi shoot 3s before Luka got here?

Again dude. Duncan comes here and he has Luka. Does Luka Doncic play for the Miami Heat? No. Ok then. I don't want to hear about teams game planning for Duncan Robinson on the Heat. Irrelevant.
Lol

You don't wanna hear the truth. Guy had a nice regression on that 3pt% this year.

Stop acting like the Heat are some scrub team man.

Did they really send Luka back in the game? Is that a freaking joke? How dumb can that team be?

And Jrich with his terrible contract and useless.

Time to upgrade DFS/Maxi's position. They never learn last season how Kawhi murdered both and now PG is clicking. Game over.


That's why they should've drafted Saddiq Bey.

Brunson should be paid. He competes and is pretty consistent. They should resign him over THJ.

That's cool

Sorry you don't like simple facts.

You go pay Robinson 20 mil and we'll all be laughing at you later

Carlisle holds some serious responsibility for this loss

Now Mavs gave all the momentum back to an ice cold team and will now likely be starting their summer a week from now

Shameful, yet predictable coaching. Not a surprise Rondo could predict plays this idiot is calling… Hasn’t changed a thing in 7 years



Hasn't changed a thing since 2011. That has been his one and only calling card. Been milking it since.

Wouldn't know. Kawhi & PG have been kicking DFS & Maxi's ass for 3 games straight and Josh Green's first minutes came with 4 min left in the 4th qtr down by 24 :crazy:

Luka just turned 22. So he just got into drinking age in the US. He can drink all he wants when the season is over. Not party after game 2. It's a series now so Carlisle better grab them by the collar. Dennis Smith was held to an even shorter leash than DFS and Kleber. If these partying fools were measured with the same stick they would have been benched too.

The Curry trade is haunting the Mavs this playoff series. That extra scorer could have made a difference in Game 3.

Momentum is now on the Clippers side. THJ needs to get hot again. I am not sure the recovery time on Luka’s neck injury, but he can’t play again like tonight.

Bad loss but could be a good thing in the long run. The roster is just lacking so much and I hope, win or lose this series, Donnie does something this offseason.

Getting Richardson was in hopes of slowing down superstar wings in the playoffs. Kawhi and PG would have steam rolled over Curry, no question. Unfortunately that didnt pay off either. Jrich was a no show too.

If Lebron owned Demar Derozan and Toronto in the West before, Kawhi now owns Luka and the Mavs. That only changes when Kawhi leaves the West.

I know the feeling. He has big games for us at times but I would rather see 18m be spent in other ways.

Richardson isn't annoying or physical enough to guard anyone. Look at Brooks in Memphis, that's the kind of play the team needs.

It shows a failure to build a team. And the responsibility for that goes up the ladder to the GM.

In essence, that's season after season of just sitting in the office bringing back JJ Barea and Devin Harris every other year and failing to develop new talent. How he kept his job for so long is baffling.

Yeah, the FO's been mediocre the couple of years. They've made some solid moves and some good gambles but there's just something about the way they approach offseason that is so lax for the most part.

Lol Donnie sucks at fee agency and Cuban is busy with his TV show.

Too much negativity guys, the team overachieved this year, there are some glaring warning signs (mainly KP), and lack of talent in general, Luka's insane performance the first 3 games gave hope, but it was what it was, historical performance by 3rd year player, but not enough to cover the talent disparity.
The FO **** up this offseason, they gave up the 3rd ball handler and scorer on a great contract for a defensive expiring that disappointed, and gambled in the draft on potential vs proven talent in Bey, and missed out Boston giving up Bane for free basically, but it boils down to the fact that they are positioned for this offseason and that's where should make their moves, but KP's performance does make the offseason more complicated.
THJ is a 15 mil/yr guy, and he's great for his 6th man role/backup starter, he doesn't suck and he isn't 3rd stringer Mavs should blow their cap space to sign.
