I hope we can correct this troubling trend...
The Mavs are 29th in the league being up 5 points or less with 3 minutes remaining, beating only the Warriors. Being down 5 or less with 3 minutes remaining, the Mavs are last in the league with a shocking 0-13.

Just blow them out by 30 and don't let up. Then we don't have that problem.

Interesting first half. Things definitely improved once Luka quit playing Harden ball, especially bricking all of those 3's so early.

I did like KP in the middle. Looked like he played a fair amount in a zone, something Bobi could do. I also liked when KP put the ball on the floor past the FT line and dribbled and looked to eurostep for a finish at the rim. He didn't finish either time, but I like that he is working on that, and he needs to have some in-game success with it, so he has confidence to add it to his repertoire. Keep working on it big guy!

Don't get me wrong Gallinari is a solid player but I don't think he would really help Dallas.

So I hope some of those trade rumors aren't true regarding the mavs interest in him.

I'd prefer more of a Covington or Gordon type combo forward who can both play defense.

Mavs coaching staff needs to use KP differently. Moving off balance threes don’t work.

I think every time Derek Harper says a shot is “good” when they are wide open the shot is missed.

If OKC could ever finish at the rim, they'd have the lead already.

KP looks great early in the 4th. Has some groove. You could even say controlling the pace of the pace of the game (offensively and defensively). More of this KP please.

Anyone else enjoying this ball movement by the mavs?

This is how they should play the game and get rid of any ISO plays in their playbook.

It looked terrible with Harrison barnes was here and it looks terrible even with Luka

I love how KP attacks but makes the extra pass to find open shooters...

That's the KP they need moving forward

Delon Wright looks good too, but occasionally he tries for a little too much, or even needlessly over does things. He needs to brush up his fundamentals. Take a clue from Luka. Use body better.

And just now he was bloked on the 3 pointer. Needlessly. He had a guy committed. Pumpfake Delon - you got space you gotta exploit it, like Kleber does.

For sure. I think those are huge positive signs. He can pumpfake from 3 point range, then drive, and then pass. There is room in the middle because the floor is spread, and he has a variety of euro-like, slow-mo drives he can use for a floater-like shot or pass (like he did).

Honestly when Delon Wright is on his game and given quality minutes I believe he is the best overall backcourt overall player after Luka.

He really gives the team a better 2 way player than THJ

Dude rebounds, defends and gets deflections and he might be the most underrated penatrator on this team

I think luka could also take a page out of Wright book and not fall in love with the 3 ball and keep attacking the paint if you repeatedly have success

That's what I like best about Wright he's one of the few guys who won't fall in love with the 3 point shot even if he makes one or two in a row he'll still keep driving

He really gives the team a better 2 way player than THJ

Dude rebounds, defends and gets deflections and he might be the most underrated penatrator on this team
hm, I'm not quite sure. He is great defensively, but just ok offensively. He is smart and generally doesn't try to do things he is not comfortable doing, which also means that there are not many things he can do offensively. He can shoot an open 3, and drive with his euro-step like moves, but he is generally offensively very hesitant and frankly gets lost quite often.

But he will improve with experience. Remember, he never played major minutes in NBA. In 2 years time he could be a great two-way player.

Delon was the fastest player on the court tonight, looked good.

Huge play in the game was when Schroeder had a fast break off turnover and Porzingis ran all the way back with him and prevented the layup. That's solid hustle from KP that most big men don't have

Yes. I agree. But only to an extent.
Many people say that about Luka without realizing that his step-back 3 move is key part of the reason why he drives so successfully (just like Harden). He has to shoot it (at minimum occasionally) to keep the threat alive, so he can keep defenders honest and exploit driving.
