Just short of a quadruple double for Luka

Or it could have the opposite effect

It can't really get any worse than it is now.

Cause they are stupid.

Boban Marjanovič also was having his way, didn't play

Burke was hitting everything.... didn't play

Somehow Luka stopped attacking the paint and was more or less just passing outside and doing stupid 3 pts

All in all such a BS of a game that this is the last one I watch from the Mavs, cause it just gets my mood down. So many won games lost to total idiocy

5 seconds to go that **** should have been 3 free throws for Harden btw, cause that was another of the bad ideas by the Mavs and all of it is orchestrated by Rick who imo is really over appreciated here on these boards. How on earth you manage to lose this game is beyond me.

RS chokes don't prepare you for the playoffs. It's the other way around.

He's gonna look like KAT did versus Capela if he has to face Kawhi and PG for 48 minutes.

Mavs choked, but to be fair the only reason they had the lead was because Trey Burke played out of his mind.

Dallas also lacks leadership right now. Luka’s a great player and will only get better, but he’s not a great leader yet imo. Too young and inexperienced. Will come with seasoning.

Trey Burke should have been in long time ago. Dunno what Carlise was thinking, he was having a great game and then you bench him.

The Bubble so far seems to be heavily favoring the more experienced rosters and teams, Blazers take down the Grizz, Rockets take down Mavs, and Spurs take down Kings.

Everyone of these games vital for the teams involved so this wasn't a case of a team maybe not giving 100% out there.

Carlisle and Barea are on this roster and know Dirk.

I'd think they would know if KP had the skill to target these mismatches.

Given this is a game against one of the best playoff teams in the last 5 years I doubt he would.

Original Harden - 1
Euro Harden - 0
