Mavs have closed this game with 5 straight poor possessions all bad long 3 point shots

That foul bailed them out on that last attempt

Late game execution has got to be fixed for this team

Mavs didnít look capable of getting the ball anywhere near the rim within 24 seconds against this small team. It should be good for a film session.

I agree

I'm not sure why KP sat damn near all of the 4th qtr

he could have feasted on the small lineup inside

They really didn't need to drive it though ''they could have just ran set post plays for KP

But they got completely away from him for some strange reason.

Luckily this didn't come back to bite

I guess that's why they need Redick as someone else mentioned he might not be brain dead like half of our other players

What Carlisle has done with KP in this 4th quarter is inexcusable. I'd be pissed if I was him

KP could have scored inside or got fouled half those possessions the Mavs were jacking up deep 3's on 5 straight possessions and got lucky one of those shots was called a foul on Luka or else it could have been a major meltdown

That is a big mystery

He sat the entire 4th qtr

came in with about 5 minutes left to play and then RC benched him again for the rest of the game until the late Boston FT's

made absolutely no sense since he was outstanding on defense and wasn't a liability at all

Unlike THJ. When dude gets in pressure situations, he prefers to drive and make boneheaded plays. THJ needs to be a shooter who passes.

Its shocking how many times KP set up in the post to punish the smaller Celtics and was completely ignored by the rest of the team

So I understand benching him. If the team is going to be at a disadvantage on defense and NOT take advantage of his offense, then the bench is the only logical solution

Of course, other coaches will notice this and go small too which means that KP should get used to being benched in the 4th

This guy here has to start being a smart veteran who can help close out games. Right now he's been beyond bad lately and it wouldn't surprise me if he plays his way completely out the closing lineup when Redick suits up.

You can't have both J.Rich and THJ out there closing games by making rookie mistakes over and over again. I cringe when either of them start dribbling the ball.


Josh Richardson has to do more
Richardson is an off guard who’s been more off than on lately and it’s starting to drive me crazy. He had a box score stuffing game, scoring eight points on 3-of-9 shooting, grabbing six boards, and dishing four assists. But he also had three turnovers and for a guy who doesn’t handle that much, he has to do better. Luka Doncic gets a bigger pass since he handles the ball so much (though his eight turnovers were terrible in their own right), but Richardson has been in quicksand for a number of games now. He’s got to shake the funk and start connecting on his shots, otherwise he’s not doing enough to warrant the minutes he’s getting.

Most games with 30PTS, 5REB, 5AST in Mavericks history:
Mark Aguirre 52
Dirk Nowitzki 47
Luka Doncic 46

That's 10 techs on the season now for Doncic.
The number you'd really rather not get to is 16.

Luka Doncic tonight:
36 PTS
8 REB
5 AST
73 FG%
63 3P%

KP as well as Luka should have been posted up more. Smaller guards on the perimeter leading us to a bunch of late shot clock 3s in not ideal. Good thing Luka was hitting.

Carlisle should be directing Luka to feed KP in the low post, instead of allowing Luka to pound the air out of the ball for 22 seconds before hoisting up a step-back airball.

Carlisle isn't, so Luka isn't, so KP isn't. Which of these three elements is easiest to re-configure?

Prediction: This will not be a popular opinion, but .....

Luka is not showing much progress as a floor general. Is he getting direction from the coaching staff? Luka has sort of plateaued as an elite stat-maker, but the Mavs will not be going far with Luka insisting on carrying the load all by himself. He seems to ignore that KP is on the floor, and seems to be unaware of the possibility of continually feeding KP to pressure the defense.

KP has categorically demonstrated the ability to produce at an elite level (and consistently), but Luka keeps Bogarting the ball. It's holding KP back, and it's holding the whole team back. They will only go as far as Luka can dribble them, which looks to be lower seed playoff team, and a first-round exit.

Further, yes, they need another first-tier player, but honestly, who is going to want to come stand around while Doncic dribbles, hoists an outrageously long step-back, and then raises his pudgy arms in a self-congratulatory gesture 35% or the time? Right now, Luka is about Luka, about promoting himself and his own brand, and it is past tiresome to watch.

Makes the failure to acquire a PG mentor like Dragic (or to sign an available PG like Rubio) seem like an even bigger loss, because Carlisle apparently doesn't have the ability to get through to Luka, communicate to him the duties of a TRUE point guard, a TRUE floor general, and a TRUE leader.

Seriously, this style of play, and Luka's individual indulgences and tantrums are making the Mavericks difficult to enjoy, because long term, Luka-ball is going to turn out to be Loser-ball.

We definitely need some other ways to generate offense and I agree that posting up KP and/or Luka should be explored. Other sets with Luka off ball.
We also need to get into our offensive sets sooner.

on defense i get wanting to defend the 3 but a couple times Tatum just drove past his man and straight in for a jam. i mean that's about the highest % shot there is and no one came to help. KP - i think it's ok to sag off of luke f'n Kornet just a bit to at least show at the rim. Luka also just stands around and waits for a rebound. Defense has to show early to at least threaten to stop the drive - not wait until it's too late.

Carlisle isn't, so Luka isn't, so KP isn't. Which of these three elements is easiest to re-configure?

Prediction: This will not be a popular opinion, but .....

Luka is not showing much progress as a floor general. Is he getting direction from the coaching staff? Luka has sort of plateaued as an elite stat-maker, but the Mavs will not be going far with Luka insisting on carrying the load all by himself. He seems to ignore that KP is on the floor, and seems to be unaware of the possibility of continually feeding KP to pressure the defense.

Yea, I can't imagine Rick commanding Luka to get the ball in to KP. It's just not his style of play. What I don't understand is how you can almost lose a game you once led by 20+ without going for the mismatches. That certainly seemed like the no brainer solution.

In all seriousness, I would absolutely pay to hear Coach break down game film and what he saw, and what he was thinking.

I've been saying KP goes long stretches of games without getting touches.

They will feed him in the 1st qtr and then after that it becomes every man for themselves.

He's usually standing around watching THJ, Richardson and Brunson all go shot hunting.

And as you mentioned Luka's dribbling for 20 seconds every possession of the 4th qtr's is part of the reason this offense gets stagnant so often down the stretch of games.

Carlisle refuses to call set plays and when you have a young team like that which is turnover prone in the clutch you can help them out by calling plays that put them in a position to succeed

Posting Luka or KP is better than having guys jack up 3 point shots from damn near halfcourt on 5 straight possessions vs a team like Boston who basically had no bigs or rim protection.

Also it's getting real bothersome to know that anytime a team applies pressure to Dallas ball handlers they cough it up.

This has been going on since last year so whose coaching this team to adjust and improve in those situations.

They will likely cough up 1-2 1st round playoff games because of the same issues and as fans we will say dsmn the Mavs could have won that series if only they could have protected the ball or attacked the rim more late in games.

I agree about Luka dribbling the air out of the ball and the rest of the guys just stand around and watch. Too predictable. RC couldíve brought Burke inó actually the perfect opportunity for the Brunson/Burke backcourt we all loathe so. And I agree with everyone who said hardly playing KP in the 4th was an odd decision. We had no rim protection.

I think it comes down to KP's progression. If KP can't punish smaller lineups, then he can't play. I'm not sure what we can do defensively, but offensively he simply has to find a way to use his height as an advantage.

The Celtics put out a really long but small lineup and it bothered everyone we had-- Luka included. KP was uncomfortable posting and driving on them and was out of position defensively on the other end and they were punishing him with quickness with Tatum as their center.

People complain about Rick going small, but Rick can't play a guy who is blowing it on both sides of the court so had no choice but to match their small lineup.

Ya'll know just because a team goes small doesn't mean the Mavs have to matchup with them

LA doesn't take AD off the floor when teams go small and neither will Philly with Embiid or Denver with Jokic or Utah with Gobert.

I think sometimes the Mavs do exactly what other teams want them to do

How about playing some zone defense if you don't want KP defending smaller guys on defense

Vice versa KP could have had success vs the smaller Celtics by posting up it's not like he's a liability inside. Punish them inside and gurantee the Celtics would have been the team trying to adjust.

Even then Luka could have posted up to but I think the Mavs are so quick to give in often to what other teams want them to do.

Sometimes- is an understatement. It seems to happen more often than not. Call a few set plays that post up Luka so he can get a closer attempt or open up an outside shooter from a double. Post or iso KP and let him work. I don't even know if they have post plays in their sets. Lol. Free roam offense needs to be more limited by RC in games and situations like that.

Let's be clear: this has nothing to do with KP's progression, and EVERYTHING to do with Luka's progression as a floor general.



KP is not going to be bringing the ball up and then throwing the ball to himself in the low-post.
