Luka can't buy a ft in the 2nd half despite some of the weakest fouls all season being called all over the place.

Barnes jumper the only offense by a starter since they came back in.

Doncic is a great. Max him out as soon as it's available.

Everyone else fall in line and play well.

Good win. Good to see Luka playing point. JJ, Maxi, DAJ, and Harris came through. They should roll with the Luka, Wes, Barnes,Kleber, and DAJ starting lineup from now on.

Skin Wade is so bad on the broadcast. I had to mute the game which is a shame because I really like MF.

It was a rough start for Kleber but I'm not gonna lie I liked the whole, let's stop pretending Luka isn't our pg and let's get our best paint defender on the floor instead of Brunson who is pg in title only, thing we did.

Be interesting to see if this continues. I still think we need Smith's defense though when he gets back which I'm betting will be next game.

I will say that Doncic's three point shooting has tanked since taking over primary ball handler duties. I really hope Smith can get him some open threes that he so desperately needs.

Finally Rick lets Kleber play in the S5 ... finally!

Devin Harris is such a veteran. Really like him this season. JJ of course as well.

Anyone really questioning IF Luka Doncic is the Starting Point Guard for the Mavs the next years? Donnie Nelson and Mark Cuban should build a strong team around him like the Lakers do that for Lebron this and next year.

If Maxi can be consistent with the 3 he is definitely starter material. I think his game complements DJ's well as long as he is able to stretch the floor.
When DSJ comes back I'd love to keep Kleber in the starting lineup with Wes going to the bench but Rick would never have that. I'd like to see how Maxi would handle a bigger role with Luka and giving him more time with the first group would allow the FO to evaluate him better for our future. I'm just afraid he'll become another McDerrmott/Aminu situation in the off-season.

I pray that Rick does it and put Wes on the bench. Wes is great from the bench... why not giving him the 6th man role.

Kleber is just too good in our defense to not have him next to DJ... and when he can start as a S5 he also has confidence and I bet his 3 pointer falls.

Bullets:
  • W
  • Rick finally made some adjustments to lineups that we all wanted to see for quite some time I guess. Both Kleber in the starting unit and JJB in the closing lineup are good and obvious improvements. At least as long as DSJ is still out.
  • One impact of Kleber: Randle, who is a known Mavs killer, was only 5-16 tonight. Still a decent game because he went to the line quite often.
  • Doncic over the last 6: 24.3 PTS / 6.5 REB / 7.8 AST / 2.3 TOV / 1.3 STL
  • Best game by Luka and DJ in terms of pick and roll synergy. Guys missed some easy ones under the basket. Otherwise Doncic would have finished the game with 13+ AST.
  • Doncic now at 19/6/5 for the season. Only other rookies to average that: Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson, Grant Hill. Add 35% from three and he's all alone.
  • Barnes 45.2% 3FG over last 10. Leads team in eFG% during that stretch outside the center position.
  • Ice climbers are back. Devin and JJB with 34 bis points off the bench and their overall veteran grittiness.
  • Powell 0-2 from three. I know it's not a biggie, but I'm going to point that out until he effing stops shooting them. Harp also said he's a decent defender. I lol'd.
  • Also a concerning trend: Not seeing a lot of DFS. Two blocks last night, but not much more... Getting him in the starting lineup still an option imho though. Replace Wes and that unit gains +9.7 net rating!
  • Dirk looked a lot better I felt.

It was mentioned in the other forum that the future starting lineup should be Luka/DSJ/Barnes/Kleber/DJ....yes please.

I like Julius Randle as he is almost a 20/10 player with a 21 PER, but he can't play defense worth a dog's ass. That is something to consider this summer...

Powell is now 8 for 47 on threes. It feels like he’s taken so many more but it’s probably because every one he shoots, I recoil in horror.

.170 on threes. Even adjusting for the extra point of a three that’s only an eFG% of .255

LOL at Dwight Powell continuing to shoot threes at a teen's percentage. There's not shooting out of a slump here. He's a terrible three shooter and someone needs to bring him down to earth. Carlisle, assistants, Dirk, Doncic. Somebody tell him he sucks at shooting.

went to the game and saw Powell shooting threes in warm-ups. 1/5 from what I saw, so not sure why he would want to shoot them in the game.

Poor Powell. You know he is working hard on it. His buddy Maxi re-tooled his stroke in the offseason and is having success yet Powell is the old version of DJ at the FT line, It's tough to watch. If I were him, I would be working double time on my handle and driving from the 3pt line every day...and forget about the 3 ball.

Hate to keep harping on Powell but I still have never seen someone with his size, energy, attitude, athleticism, coordination and intelligence get so many opportunities yet produce and yield so very little.

He doesn't kill us though and has been pretty decent with the 2nd unit but he has definitely hit his ceiling and I'm not sure there is much of a future here after Harris and Barea are gone. Frankly I'd rather see more of Mejri or even what Kostas can bring.

Its not just him taking them, its often the moment he takes them, specially during this past losing streak. Opponent goes in a streak in the 4th, takes the lead, we really need a bucket and he throws it up with 15+ seconds on the clock. Happened a few teams....

There is just no development with him anymore. He proved he couldnt add the three. His off. rebounding is as usual this super lame swiping at the ball attempt. His defense is weak.

I really think he keeps shooting them because Maxi hits them and he fears losing his role completly to Maxi, who provides better rebounding, better defense, better spacing...
