2019 - 2020 Dallas Mavericks: Eastern Bloc > Western Conference

Recommended Posts

I think I saw on Twitter Denver was 12-1 on back-to-backs last year. This is a huge win especially when you consider the big 2 were a combined 7-26 from the floor.

Great win! Road win against a very quality opponent. We always found a way to lose these games in recent history.

It's just weird going from 20 years of your best player being automatic at the free throw line to getting extreme anxiety every time you see your star at the stripe in clutch situations.

Bench looks really good and deep.  Carlisle won't know for a while who the starters should be, but I'm glad we have so many decent options.

I know it was his first game, but KP and Powell aren't great together. Too little rebounding and Powell can't guard anyone. Glad they closed with Kleber and KP. It is nice to actually have a closing lineup that can stop somebody.

I can’t believe they beat the thuggets in Denver. 
 

the last 6 minutes were very shaky for the mavs offensively. They really needed some good defense to hold on and they got it. The missed free throws are annoying. Need to get better at those.

Agreed on the free throws. When the Mavs were in their prime last decade (and the first part of this decade), they were great at free throws it seemed, especially from their star. Luka is not even close to being clutch at the line like Dirk was. Hopefully that changes because the ball is going to be in his hands a lot and he will be going to the line quite a bit because of that.

I think their theory is that Powell rim running while Luka and KP pick and pop will be an elite offensive unit.

I could of swore reading back in the early 00's the Mavs having a really good FT shooting coach. Not sure if he's still with the team. They need to shoot 500 FT each before the next game on Friday. This team should be 4-0 if not for this issue.

I'm really happy with how DFS and Maxi have started this season. Wright is that dude too. Man what a pickup.

This is definitely the deepest Mavs team since 2011.

If we could just reallocate Hardaway's $18 million for someone actually worth $18 million, this team could be elite.

He has a player option for next year. Will be interesting to see if he exercises it.

We got us a deep ass team man. Second unit is prolly the strongest overall in the league. I’d swap curry for Brunson or Wright in the starting 5. Curry needs to microwave off the bench.

Still room for improvement. The thunder and warriors have been obnoxiously good at free throws the last 5 years or so.

Next year he’s an expiring contract.  Your best hope for improvement this year is Courtney Lee’s expiring $12m deal + our $11m trade exception.

Bad 3 pt shooting down the stretch.

I fucking love when it goes according to plan, but it got a little overly Luka-centric down the stretch.

Free throw shooting the last two 4th quarters has absolutely killed us. This game should be over. 

Pretty much all this. They fell in love late in the Portland game with the 3, and stopped driving, and it bit them in the ass.  If it's not falling they need to be driving and getting fouls.

But that leads to the 2nd point, which is FT's. They hit even 80% on their FT's and they beat Portland going away, Denver too.

Gotta get that better.

Meh, his first game back and only played the first half.  KP is already a much better rebounder than we thought he'd be, and it'll depend on the other starters.  Luka/KP/Powel is deadly offensively, so the 2nd unit can keep Brunson/Seth/THJ as their scoring punch.

By interesting you mean the biggest lock in the history of man.

That would be John Wall and Chris Paul picking up their respective player options, but unless he balls out the rest of the year, it is certainly likely that Timmy will be on the books for $18m next year.

Completely forgot about that trade. Well that Warriors pick this season may actually be a good one after Curry just broke his hand and they already sucked before he went down.

Hey that'll be a top 36 or so pick.  They already snatched Brunson from that range...

I hope go show up well tonight. Aren’t going to win with Luka/KP having another off night.

Sounds like all those life long Lakers fans from Addison, Rockwall, Southlake, etc are there tonight. Weird, they’ve missed the past few years games.

Fuck yes. One possession, KP sprints down and pins Lebron in the post, then step back 3 on that ass on the next.
