Default GDT: Lakers @ Mavs 1:30 CT (Dirk statue unveiled)

Update: only one basketball on the statue, looks good!
https://twitter.com/tim_cato/status/...jJK78pMe9Gn6Dw

Cowboy Luka has arrived
https://twitter.com/dallasmavs/statu...jJK78pMe9Gn6Dw

Lakers are on a three game losing streak, they?re desperate for a win. Mavs need to build off the rockets win and close out the year strong.

Mavs OUT: DFS, Josh Green, Maxi, Kemba
(Hardy will be active!)

Lakers OUT: AD

Edit: Frank is a late scratch with knee soreness

Game plan:

Slowest offense in the league
Try not to turn it over (but fail)
Kick it out to guys who miss threes
Call emergency timeouts when we go down double digits EVERY. SINGLE. GAME.

Allowing 75% and 50% from three while we?d shoot 37% and 20%

I get that we miss shots but it?s also our inability to defend that means we will always go cold and cough up 10, 15, 20, and even 25point leads

Literally the reason we are losing is because of our shot selection

Two teams that are inept from three

Lakers learn and take twos

Mavs are down because 2/3 of our shots are threes. 1/4 of theirs are threes

Mavs are currently unwatchably bad

Not even scrappy and m?diocre

Actively poorly coached with poor effort. Utterly unwatchable

Maybe Hardy is still hurt, but Pinson and Wright getting minutes over him...le sigh.

Luka is done with this team, and I don't blame him.

Pretty much dumb if we don't keep Wood at this point.

Wood is now a defensive player. Dunno why or how it happened...but it did.

Best thing is he likes playing here. You have to keep guys that want to be here and are good.

Additionally Luka likes playing with him and communicates with him on the court. They are slowly learning to play together. If they lose him Luka is going to be pissed.

Wood added some defense
This game he showed passing and if he adds that and gets his three back, he could be a steal

Then again, Wood saw the Lakers playing five guards. Against real competition, he?s inconsistent. Not bad. Just VERY inconsistent

Well inconsistent is basically everyone on the roster not named Luka.

Strangely we're 18-16 though. That's kinda shocking.

Tale of two halves, but the story is still same old. If we hit 3s we have a great chance to win.

This game was more proof that we have 1 guy who can penetrate and what it causes. We go from looking like 2nd /3rd tier team to a bottom 3 team depending on if the "other than Lukas" are hitting the wide open shots he feeds them.

Yeah this game didn?t solve anything in the way Mavs win games. It was a microcosm of the whole season in one game.

At least espn can finally put to rest the Luka ball hog narrative for a little bit.

Loved the way Wood played today. As a team we are missing 3 good rotation players so we survived that. Hoping we see more play from THJ like he played today.

Very true but with a very below league elite roster (players 2-12) by mathematical definition, the only chance we have post season is to hope for our high variance strategy (max 3 attempts) to hit with a randomly placed hot streak or two similar to last post season. Much to the chagrin of the mathematically challenged, if we become a mid range shooting team we will consistently lose with no high upside random variance potential like the Mavs currently have. We will never become a team of take it to the hoop type strategy as only Luka can do that at above league average.

Mavs are 3-1 with Wood starting next to Luka...
