The team is .500 and you want them to tank?

Honestly, what reason is there not to? Forgettable season all around, we finally have a pick, no one can get/stay healthy, and Dallas has a lack of tradeable assets… Just getting to the offseason and getting a better lottery pick changes almost all of those things going into next year

I don't consider this season a lost cause yet. KP is starting to look like a viable number 2. Brunson has stepped it up this year. Luka, THJ, and Bullock need to step up their games.

Its been forgetable for several teams with expectations. This far into the year tanking at .500 is pretty far fetched unless KP and Luka both go down. Trust me I'm not anti tank as I live in Detroit and been saying they needed to bottom out for years.

Bullock's shooting seems to be coming around.

Yup he's shot an average of 53% from 3 in the last 3 games since he's been back. Hopefully a sign that his shot is returning to form like DFS's has.

Nice win on the second half of a back-to-back. Bullock needs to keep his stroke like today.

Very good win, ok the Nuggets have a lot of problems but they still have Jokic.
Our shooters finally found the rhythm, the 3point % is too important for us.

After today's game we're now tied for the 5th seed and top 10 in defensive rating. Good stuff!

Luka is important to this team due to his passing. 15 assists is nothing to scoff at. He will find open shooters and it’s on his teammates to knock down shots.

Really disappointing about Porzingis entering health and safety protocols. I don’t see how any team can develop consistency and chemistry when teams are having to shuffle rosters every game.

Today was great example, why Mavs shouldn't pay Brunson too much. His value drops significantly, when Luka plays. Luka is playing 38 minutes in playoffs so that money should be used elsewhere.

Level of the Nba at the moment is as low as it gets.

Interesting enough, as bad are we talking about Luka, Mavs are .61 with him.

Yeah, if they did shorten the protocols period, he'd miss GSW and HOU, and be back for CHI hopefully.

two notable stats:
47-28 rebounding disadvantage.
29 free throws allowed.

This speaks volume how bad Powell actually is.
But the magic is the Mavs still get the wins with consecutive 3s fall on time.
Is it by luck or by design?
Is Denver tanking in the 4th quarter?

Man, that play where Luka **** bullies Jamychael Green all the way from the perimeter to the basket shows how **** strong he is.
