Mavs aren't getting any stops with that tandem all on the floor together.

The most impressive defensive lineup I saw last night was with Luka surrounded by McGee, DFS, Bullock and Green.

I'm actually surprised Kidd didn't use it more because they were clamping down Phoenix.

I have no problem with those 3 on the floor together if you're struggling offensively but if go that route for long stretches of games get ready for shootouts and if shots aren't falling for us it's going to get ugly giving up layups on the other end of the floor.

From watching that game last night though if Wood makes his FT's like I said earlier we aren't even having these discussions after just one game.

The worst payer IMO yesterday by far was THJ
We did and idk how anyone thinks this dud experiment is a good plan. You play the 2nd best player next to the best player, especially given that #1 is Luka. You piece guys in around them, not wedge the #2 in off the bench.

Idc if we won that game or not, it's a fail rotation still. I'm not putting that loss on Wood missed FT. He carried us in the 4th and didn't come back in until about 2 mins left in the game.

I'm not sure why Kidd doesnt try a Luka/Bullock/DFS/Wood/McGee starting lineup. To me that is our most balanced lineup and there is plenty of firepower from the bench.

I don't trust not having a secondary ball handler in that lineup. If Luka gets trapped, then you're relying on guys who I don't have basically any trust in bringing the ball up the court. Your best bet in that situation is actually Wood.

Hopefully Kidd has had some time to think over the rotation and lineups. It's one game but a LOT to learn from there. For one, Mavs had NO plan once Dinwiddie picked up his 4th (TACKY!) foul. That was when it all started falling apart in the 3rd quarter. We can point to similar struggles last year but you're kidding yourself if that wasn't the biggest key turning point in this game.

Plenty to get excited about, but still lingering questions when it comes to that 3rd option. I have no idea why Hardy wasn't at the ready if Dinwiddie picked up an early foul. They must not have had him in the rotational game plan, but that they easy option given what happened and not having Frank, who Hardy has been playing over regardless. When that happened, Mavs still had a 17 point lead so if that moment is too big for the kid, then that worries me more moving forward.

All in all, you CANNOT play Luka and Wood together for only ~15 minutes. The clear and away two best players on this team so make it happen.

I take full responsibility for game 1's loss

I mistakenly put Suns at Mavs instead of Mavs at Suns. The mistake angered the Mavs gods. I won't make that mistake again. Don't worry, we'll go 81-0 for the remainder of the season.
