I don't think so. Mavs haven't proven they can stay in front of Kawhi or PG. Without Boban, Carlisle doesn't try the zone. Without the zone, the Clippers have another layup line.


I concur with that assessment fully and completely.

THJ made some big shots when it mattered last night.

Powell was the difference maker, not Boban, I liked him in the floor when Batum was there, Mavs struggled against the sneaky french.

Luka needs a good blocker and roller.
Powell isn't perfect but can play with Luka.

Yeah, Dwight's rolling kept some Clippers below and helped dilute the perimeter. Boban shouldn't see playing time, he's a huge advantage offensively, but he's also huge defensive liability against light out shooters, but after game 4 trauma, I understand where the experiment came from.

Boban plays only for discourage Lue to go ultrasmall, it works... I think Powell has earned minutes for play in the next game(s).

In a parallel universe, James Johnson would take on Nic Batum and Iwundu can take on Mann. Easy.

But here we are paying Reddick full price to make youtube videos.
