You've been right on the money. He hit 2 clutch 3's earlier several games ago and looked like he might have turned a corner, but I think he's showing that he is what he is, and there wasn't another level for him to step up to.

It's even worse for Boban, but yeah, KP doesn't get the calls anything like a smaller guy would.

How low does the Mavs 3-pt shooting have to drop to before Broekhoff gets a shot? 25%? Asking for a friend. ;-)

The Raptors are doubling Luka on the perimeter every time he touches the ball, and it's clearly bothering him. 5 turnovers in the first have. Not good. He needs to stop forcing that overhead heave across the court.

All resources are tied up in KP and guess what that means? We have ZERO defense. Our defensive philosophy sucks, couple that with zero defenders on the floor. We literally have 2 starters, the rest are 2nd and 3rd teamers.

Agreed. That’s what a mediocre off season gets the team.

Even struggling and playing well below his full potential, Porzingis is leaps and bounds better than any teammate Lebron had in his first several years.

If we can't hit 3's then we need to focus more on interior and post play, since the scoring is more reliable. Boban, KP, Luka, Maxi, and Wright. BIG lineup. Hammer at em. Gonna lose bricking all those 3's. At least try to play to one of the team's strengths with that BIG lineup. Not gonna happen, but I like to think outside the box and at least try something different when it's obvious staying the same course will result in another L.

Yes we can bash DFS, Curry, Wright and Brunson for not hitting 3's but the team overall sucks including our two main pieces from deep.

Seems like coaching would adjust this and run more set plays to get midrange jumpers involved curry and KP seem like they would thrive in a midrange game off set plays but nope let's just leave them standing around the 3 pt line with no movement involved

I really see a system that is being forced upon players that doesn't fit or work

So why not adjust your system to what the players do best?

At least I thought that's what good coaches really do

I still think Delon (sadly) is the closest thing we have to a 3rd option and needs to be cultivated as such. We need that and KP to get comfortable to have any shot at the playoffs.

I still don't understand why the hell a Luka-KP pick and roll isn't the focus of our offense. I honestly don't think I saw them run one single pick and roll that entire first half.

I'd say I feel for you for dealing with Dolan but since Many here deal with Jerry Jones.... Well I'll just say, the support meetings are Tuesdays at 8 CST.

We know that and we cant wait for 2021. But of course you eat his contract if you can get KP...

I think the FO still hopes they can turn him into a more effective player like they did with Jason Terry, who was also a low percentage scorer in Atlanta for five years

We 100% should not be shooting so many fkin 3's when we are just so bad at them. But I guess to counter... Which of these clowns outside of KP and Luka have the requisite skillset to adjust anything for?

Your absolutely right. But the supporting cast is very reminiscent to what the Cavs surrounded LeBron with for years. Guys like Seth Curry, DFS, Dwight Powell, Justin Jackson.... those are damn near end of bench guys. We’re relying on them way too heavily. They are what they are...they’ll have decent games every now and again, but the consistency will never be there. Unless by consistent you’re looking for very mediocre or below average of course on a pretty steady basis.

when you are able to create so damn many open threes, you have to take them. But you have to put the player on the court who are able to knock them down.

Thats why the S5 should include Seth, Jackson and Kleber.

Saw Cuban interviewed before the season started and he was talking about the new emphasis on threes and how the Mavs would be shooting 37%. Sounds like a good plan in theory but doesn't seem to be working out too well.

I disagree about curry

He played very well in sactown when got minutes

1st time around in Dallas he played very well but he was used much different that year because he had the ball in his hands more

And he played effective for a playoff team in Portland that went to the WCF so he's not a end of the bench player especially if you have a coach that can utilize him right

I agree with Jackson and Kleber. Not sure I agree on Seth though. He gets open looks to me he just doesn't pull the trigger imo.

Yes we can bash DFS, Curry, Wright and Brunson for not hitting 3's but the team overall sucks including our two main pieces from deep.

Seems like coaching would adjust this and run more set plays to get midrange jumpers involved curry and KP seem like they would thrive in a midrange game off set plays but nope let's just leave them standing around the 3 pt line with no movement involved

I really see a system that is being forced upon players that doesn't fit or work

So why not adjust your system to what the players do best?

At least I thought that's what good coaches really do
Have thought about this too. Both KP and Luka are very good at the midrange. I think there should be looks here and minimize the chucking of threes.

KP heating up. I'm convinced that his relative struggles so far this season have been almost entirely in his head. He looks much more confident this quarter. Twice in a row he caught the ball down low and just shot a very quick turnaround, and hit it both times. That's the way he needs to do it, instead of hesitating and putting the ball on the floor.
