Still remember the Kings sweeping the Mavs last season.

Hopefully, Nilikina and Green still get the portion of playing time. But I can't hurt much indeed. Bullock plays better defense than Sterling Brown.

Sucks to see Brandon Knight out. Was really interested to see him play more.

Sacremento plays great defense. While both Brunson and KP struggle, the Mavs sees the passing lanes clogged a lot. Without somebody who can create shots, the Mavs is outplayed by Ssacemento in 2nd quarter.

But what's up with both KP and Brunson? Doesn't sounds like it is because of great defense from opponents. It's a lack of energy overall fpr both players. What's up?

The Mavs miss Boban very much.

Kidd sub Powell in to make sure that Sactown gets a win.

why help on the 2-pointer and give up a wide open 3 while up by 2?

Didn't watch the game because it was too late for me but after seeing Powell playing 28 minutes :o i somehow don't even want to watch the replay.

Looking at the raw numbers, Brunson again did his thing while KP shooting 1-6 from 3 and only 7 rebounds sure is dissapointing. KP is now shooting 27% from range for the season, he was 37.6% last season.

And this top comment on Mavs reddit apparently sums up entire game at the end.

I rather have Luka chuck stepback 3s from the logo in the clutch than whatever the **** was that at the end of this game.

This is what Cuban/Nelson/Harrison built after drafting Luka 3years ago. Well done.

Yep, this goes back to previous discussion on Brunson, Luka is the team's only closer, in late game situations, Brunson is easily denied, and KP isn't a creator, both are very good for 3rd/4th options, but they can't be trusted to get you buckets when it really matters, and this was against one of the worst closing teams in the league.

Yes, that's true. Indeed, you've to hide someone on defensive end which is virutally impossible. The presence of Powell really makes things very easy for Sactown. Whoever getting the ball just target Powell every possession. It's way too easy to score upon Powell. It is way too difficult to play defense. Kidd, again, lets the team down in clutch time. Powell should not even play the entire 4th quarter. And the Mavs should create mismatch and get to the line. Sactown is over the limit early in 4th quarter.

Powell has to play, they are trying to pump his trade value...
