I would defend the rim first and if that leaves the corners open every so often at least the inside layup drill is shut down a bit. We need to develop some killer instinct and start knocking people on their ass when they come inside. You stick them on the floor they will think twice about taking it inside and start to shoot more from outside. The Boban usage was absolutely the right thing to do and I loved it. We are letting Zubac gather too many offensive rebounds and that needs to stop asap. Hope Boban plays as much in the 2nd half if not more. they have no answer against that lineup. KP needs to come out angry and defend to find a way to contribute till an opportunity to score an easy basket presents itself so he can create enough to attract more attention and make the clips spread their defense instead of allowing them to concentrate on doubling Doncic. With bigs in there like KP and Boban we can jjust feed it inside and alley oop it when they crowd doncic and make them pay for doing that.

EDIT : That's what I'm talking about.


The problem is nobody can do anything with the ball. If Luka doesnt set them up, they cant score. He has to play like he is playing for the Mavs to even have a chance. If he had a legit #2 who can create something, it would be completely different. He cant keep this up though so Clippers will go on a run in the 2nd half and thats going to be it for the game. Clippers by 5-10 is my guess.


Jalen Brunson


Yeah, we saw how Brunson worked out in the first half. 6 min, 0/0/0.

Side note: There is an overabundance of kneejerk reactions on this forum. Can anybody try to remain somewhat objective? I get being emotional about calls or silly turnovers or bad effort (like KP has shown), but a guy misses a shot and half the forum is ready to cut him. Geez Louise

How does Batum get a rebound when he's the only Clipper surrounded by Boban, KP & Luka???

My argument was the Mavs need a legit #2 who can create and you brought up Brunson. Thats ridiculous.

Nice to see that the two trades the Mavs made are paying off big time with 3 minutes for Richardson, Redick and Melli. At least, Curry didn't go for 30 points today, cause that would have added insult to injury.

It's weird that Richardson is completely off of the rotation.

It's weird that Doncic has completely stopped taking 3s. When's the last one?

EDIT : Mavs having a nice run!!!

Lots of energy feeding the mavs now it seems to be taking its toll on the clippers as well so man we just blew that lead up to 14 and I think we have this one if we can just defend and hold on

Mavs have gotten their hands on several passes tonight. Very nice active hands leading to tip steals.

a 6 point 4th quarter... after the great 3rd quarter. Crazy. KP has been great defensively but has 0 mojo on offense, like absolutely nothing.

6 points in 8 minutes is that a freaking joke! Even Doncic is missing everything.

Think about it : 6 points in 8 minutes... They are trying as hard as possible to lose this game.

EDIT : FIinally they're hitting 3s!!!

Why does Tim get 17 shoots and KP just 5?

The few minutes with Luka and KP out absolutely destroyed the rhythm and let the Clips back in.

THJ is aggressive. KP plays like he's 6-3. Teammates have more confidence in THJ. Also THJ occasionally gets hot & fills it up. KP hasn't had a nice game in a long time.
