I'm hoping toward the end of the season the Mavs will be participating in a few need him games. I also won't be surprised if he is part of the regular rotation in the playoffs.

Otherwise, solid win.
The Mavs have to start running plays where KP gets into the lane. He was standing on the perimeter all night and the only offense he was involved in was a kick-out so he could clunk a three attempt. He got one pass in the lane and dumped it to Maxi sliding down the line. It all happened by chance but would have been a good play if it had been planned.

Luka was amazing and it was easy...the Suns have no rim protection.

i have mentioned this b4...y cant kp start near the block and then Powell or Maxi would screen for him he would flare near the FT and he would get an easy 15 footer...they ran this play in NY when they wanted to get him going.

What i really like is that KP isnt forcing much when he sees his shot isnt falling. He really takes a step back and focuses on defense.

I know its a thin line between taking a step back and not being aggressive searching for better shots...but i like that its not the "im the new max guy and 2nd star, its my right to take 20 shots no matter what" with KP.

Dfs has gained a lot of my respect with his growth and ability but he just doesnt quite have what Kelly does.

Separately. Hardaway deserves a lot of credit for that win. He played great defense in some clutch moments. I didnt know that he was challenging KP for the Robin suit to batman Doncic but he has been 2nd fiddle more and more over the last few weeks.

We have a max .money player that needs to demand a meeting with rick to figure out how to get him more involved. The sitting around the perimeter isnt gonna cut it

We have a max player who is struggling and doing everything else to help the team win and we are winning.

I completely agree that we need to find a way but it doesn’t have to become a distraction or we shouldn’t think that it’s some huge team issue. If KP averages 10 points for the rest of the year but does everything else and we keep winning, I don’t think many people will be upset over that.

Anyone else notice that KP seems to rush his shot when he really doesn't have to?
The dude is 7'3" and nobody is going to block that shot. Seems when he receives the ball from the perimeter he is starting a shooting motion as he's catching the ball and those rarely go in.
When he receives from inside out he seems to be able to hit them more frequently.

Same is true for THJ. When he receives the ball from Luka or someone else from the paint, he seems almost automatic.

Idk where a distraction or huge team issue is coming from but he is making max money and you would think the coaches would have already had him in different situations on the floor. Sure If Luka keeps putting ridiculous numbers up and has consistent help from THJ we might keep winning but we arent beating the top teams or getting past the 1st round in the playoffs without KP doing more offensively. 2 pts on 0 for 8 shooting and half of them werent good shots. 13 boards and some key blocks was great. Overall his rebounding and defensive help has been impressive.

I wonder if Luka realizes how much we all appreciate his efforts. He's an extraordinary talent. I don't want it to go to his head, but I'm thankful for his efforts and look forward to a career like none other that I've witnessed. Dirk was also incredible, but I honestly believe Luka is taking it to another level. The only concern I have is whether or not Luka achieves it all in Dallas.

I find it hard to believe that the Mavs coaching staff is so inept that they would simply overlook the potential of a Luka-KP pick-and-roll. There must be a reason for the very conservative manner that KP is being used. My guess is that they're still not 100% confident in the knee and are relegating KP to mostly spot-up shooting to keep that contact risk low.

Are we truly sure he has fixed THJ?

I'm just asking because if you go back and watch THJ over the years he's had hot streaks like this before.

I personally would love to see him keep this up but I think he will always be a streaky player not a consistent player

That is why at some point KP is going to have to play much better. The clippers showed that if take away some of luka production this team doesnt really have a 2nd or 3rd option yet who can be truly trusted in a playoff series

KP could be in a similar situation as Gordon Hayward and it very well could take him one full season before he's productive offensively

It will definitely be an issue/distraction, if KP is regularly limited to 8 shots per game, with Lukatme Dribblić taking 24.

And why shouldn't it be? Does anyone think KP doesn't have an ego? Will whoever manages his endorsements be happy to see him play a distant 2nd (or 3rd) fiddle? Pretty sure he didn't arrive to Dallas looking to be Shawn Bradley 2.0.

The responsibility lies mainly with KP to find his rhythm and hit his shots. But the situation is triangular, with RC and LD the other two angles.

RC has to scheme the offense so that KP is involved (if not featured), and LD has to intentionally involve KP, feed him in in his preferred spots, even force the ball to him at times until things are running normally.

This may necessarily involve LD sacrificing a part of his game in the short-term for the long-term betterment of the team. I do not see much (if any) evidence of this yet.

The Hayward comparison is very interesting. I hadn't thought about it that way.
