Default GDT: game 2/82 - Nets (0-1) at Mavs (1-0) 7:30

Dodos vs Mavs home opener

Cam Thomas torched the Cavs for 36, but the Nets lost by 1 in a stinger. Nets will be motivated and angry.

Injuries
Mavs - none
Nets - Claxton/Whitehead out

What happened to Claxton? That will surely help.

Return of DSJ and DFS. Make Simmons shoot and Dinwiddie play hero ball, but might not be needed with Cam Thomas never seeing a bad shot. The minutes to Green and Exum should be focused on making at as hard as possible for Thomas/Dinwiddie.

Should win this one easily, but we will see. Curious of the starting lineup. No real argument to have Maxi or DJJ in this one...

Lively should eat them for breakfast inside with Claxton out. Their backup center is Day'ron Sharpe.

Be curious to see if Hardy gets minutes or if his Ankle is still an issue.

EL been day drinking again!

Haha I think she is in Arizona hence the 5:30. And we're 1-2 because Kidd is still coach. It all makes sense.

?There?s only so many guys we can play, I can?t play all 15 guys. But he will play at some point. There?s going to be times when guys are out and he will have to step up. Hardy is one of those guys?

Kidd on benching Hardy

I figured Hardy was still hurt. There is zero reason why THJ should be getting minutes over Hardy (and Curry for that matter).

THJ does not belong on this team. Honestly I think we would play much better without him. I would love to see more of Curry and Hardy as well. If we package THJ and Hardy we should be able to land a SF who can play better than DJJ. We have sadly too much mediocre depth. I also feel like we should be letting Holmes be our 2nd big off the bench. No reason to have Maxi be the primary backup.

Allowing Simmons to shoot 50% should show how broken our defense can be

This garbage defense is going to make every game excruciating. Even the wins.

This.

Defense is still broken. Luka can pull a heroic three but then we let Dinwiddie get three straight open threes.

Kidd needs a defensive coach. This is painful.

I was called out for criticizing the defense, but we're allowing 50% from the field and 50% from three.

with all the broken defense, we're still within two and historically we decide to "try" in the second half.

Luka off ball is just standing. It?s really amazing how bad the coaches are. Put his ass in the post of run him off a screen

It might seem like a small gripe, but his ability to do something ANYTHING when Kyrie/Green/Curry have the ball may well be the difference in this season and so far Luka puts his hands on his knees until he can get the ball again

Restricting the offense like that is so frustrating.

People were happy for the win last game, but we are very much a work in progress and we're going to get a lot of games like this where the offense isn't great and our defense is awful

The problem with Dallas defensively is Luka and Kyrie on the floor together creates open lanes to attack for the other teams.

It then gets compounded when you rely on guys like Kleber or Powell to rim protect.

You have to pretty much surround these two guys all game with with 2-3 competent teammates who can play defense or else it's going to look like a terrible defensive team night in and night out.

Even Denver was able to get stops doing their championship run last year because they had a few solid defenders they could surround jokic and Murray with when it mattered.

Just boggles the mind we?re 2 months away from 2024 and I?m still watching THJ and Maxi Kleber try and score/defend.

trading baskets is annoying. Luka does something astounding and then Lonnie Fucking Walker torches us on multiple straight to completely erase it

Luka 34-7-7 on his most efficient scoring in many many games, but it doesnt matter because the team sucks and can't defend or function without Luka

I?m sorry man we have guys around Luka now where we don?t have to watch Luka iso 3x in a row.

I know it seems dumb to complain about it cause he?s so efficient tonight. I just hate watching the heliocentric

It 100% has to change. No motion. Just guys watching.

Kidd keeps saying he's the best distributor in the league but his coaching means that every play is either a pull up three, a drive to a layup, or a kickout to a stationary player. The offense having zero motion is why our clutch offense is pathetic.

It's boring to watch for fans, but it's predictable for opposing coaches. Kidd HAS to coach and get more complexity. He can't just shrug and say we have Luka, because it's been years and our offense is stagnating as teams realize there is no dynamism
