Not even among the Mavs top 3.

The 30-point lead blown with 15 minutes left vs Raptors takes the nr. 1 spot.

RoCo with the play of the game imo, how he got over to the other side for the tip-in was incredible. Like an outside linebacker going around his man for a sack.

Carlisle is arguably the most overrated coach in the league. This dude looks clueless at the end of games without Dirk carrying him

Honestly, with the way the Mavs blow games late in the 4th Quarter, I am starting to wonder if Carlisle has become overrated on here.

It has been a repeating incident this entire season where the Mavs have a good lead in the 4th quarter or second half and allow the other team to comeback.

Either Carlisle is unable to figure out what is happening, the Mavs are incapable of preventing it from happening, or they don't listen to what Carlisle is telling them when they have a lead.

Seth Curry

0% shooting percentage

0% Seth the shooting man Curry

And 50% from FT 3/6

Now that makes the Curry family proud

He has obviously lost something, either that or he was the luckiest coach in the history of the NBA that just rode a roster that just happened to work well together. His run with Dirk was one of the most ridiculous runs we have ever seen from a team that was not deemed a "true contender" going into that run.

Also man did both teams get tired and sloppy near the end. Full credit to the Rockets though for making all the big plays when they had to.

Think the league would like to see these two teams play 7 times in the bubble? :nod: :nod: :nod: :nod: :nod: :nod:

I wouldn't blame this on Carlisle. Porzingis and Doncic need playoff seasoning badly. The vets can only supplement this offense so long. The team is absolutely lucky the Warriors weren't healthy this season, to strip them of the 7th seed or games like this would happen next season.

Maybe this is because the 2 best players of the mavs have young and zero playoff experience...The 2011 Mavs were legemdary in the clutch during the playoffs.

Harden is an absolute monster.

49/9/8 on 70 percent.

While getting doubled every possession for nearly 2 quarters. :lol:

Luka always does that, because he's conditioning isn't good enough. It's incredible how he can look in total control at times and then look like he doesn't know what he's doing. He was completely lost in the 4th quarter and OT.

It's funny, because they lost incredibly stupidly to the Lakers when they decided not to foul and now they do the opposite and still lose stupidly. I thought that the lost against the Lakers was the worst of the year, but now it isn't anymore. Even though... Kleber leaving a corner 3 wide open to stop a Lebron dunk with a 3pt lead and 2 seconds to go is really hard to beat as stupidity goes.

Wasn't it still Kleber who made a stupid foul under the Rockets' basket to give them two points without using the clock? So many little things!

The odds of both Curry and Harden missing a FT at the end are incredibly low considering that both are 85% FT shooters... And you need a rebound for the game... PUT BOBAN IN!

I have no clue what the odds were on him dropping 50 it had to be very favored because even great players don't hit 50 or more often.
