Kuz looks so lost when he's asked to do anything but shoot on offense.

Bradley was disrupting their offense on every possession when Luka went out. The couldn’t e blow the 3 point line with more than 10 seconds left.

We kept the Mavs to the lowest scoring half of the season, but I remember that we did play well in first half the last time we played them and then completely fell apart in the second half. We need to keep the intensity up and not fall in love with the 3 ball. Just get inside, they don't have an answer for it...

Bradley's committing one mistake after another here. That dude slipped up terribly after a decent start.

Those baseline cuts are about the only good thing Bradley brings.

I will never stop hating JJ Barea. I still have PTSD from 2011.

Lazy defense. Good timeout. Gotta keep up the intensity

LeBron should not be the one to guard JJ, he’s too active.

Didn’t even realize he was still in the league. I now fear the Mavs in the playoffs :lol:

I haven’t watched Porzingis much, but I’ve seen him in 3 games now, not impressed at all.

More like a serviceable whatever position he plays.

I haven't seen a more one dimensional team than the Mavs. Every play is a pick and pop.

That KCP deal went from a Rich Paul tax to one of the best cost efficient deals in no time. Kudos to him.

Sloppy end to the 3rd. Luckily the Mavs were sloppier.

We’ve won every quarter. Defense continues to lead the way.

That was a big finish to the quarter. I thought the Mavs from about the 7:30 until the 2:00 mark of the third quarter played extremely well offensively and it was up to us to make shots. KCP hit a couple big ones, LeBron hit a three, etc. What would have been a 6 or 8 point game is now 15 because of it.
