Sit both AD and Bron, no need to grind versus the regular season colossus Mavericks. They are the best team in the NBA right now, heal up and get ready to win the next four.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Not going to happen is my guess. I'm glad we aren't taking the "load management" route. I truly hope the NBA institutes an injury list and you have to go on it for 3 games minimum if you don't play. That would end this crap and give the fans their money's worth.

I got a bad feeling about this one. You can tell Dallas loves bringing the fight to us. Not sure we like responding.

For such a lengthy team, we kinda suck at rebounding

I really hate the overreaction defense that's forced upon our team when Avery Bradley is in the rotation. He basically puts his shoulder into the opposing ballhandler's chest gambling for steals every damn possession. When you do that against any skilled ball handler they're gonna turn the corner and have a giant head of steam driving into the lane against our bigs who our now forced to rotate at a disadvantage and that triggers the whole damn defense to collapse. We won last night but we had to work way too damn hard for no reason.

When Caruso or KCP defend the primary ballhandler guys have to actually work to get into the lane and it's usually without and downhill speed which is easy pickings for our shot blockers.

Yea this is surprising. I thought AD was a stronger rebounder than he has shown thus far. Obviously this is not all on AD.

It kills me whenever we give up offensive boards, but we do have this problem, especially against energy guys that go hard after boards, because most of the time we don't really box out.
With the fast pace and all the transition baskets, the league hase kinda' moved on from this tho...

For as much s**t Brook Lopez has got throughout his career for his low rebounding averages he is one of the best at boxing out. You just can't get around his body.

We’re still playing very good D and we been getting good looks inside. They don’t have an newer for or size. We can’t let them eat this into an up tempo flow where they can get easy loos from 3.

Kuz with a tough shooting half... but we didn’t need it. Howard is the bench hero tonight.
