36pts to the second worst offense in the league. We are back to 2000's level defense around here.

Definitely concerning. We also let the Magic get their season high.

THJ is pissing me off. Pretty much any time he gets the ball he's going to shoot it. And tonight that means he’s probably going to miss it.

As good as the supporting cast was in that Denver game they have been equally awful tonight thus far. That’s going to have to change to win this game.

Seth Curry, a top 3-point shooter in the league, did not get a single shot all night. That just cannot happen. I don’t understand what Carlisle is doing with him. Set up some plays to get him some looks.

I’m thinking Carlisle is trying to show MGMT that THJ ain’t fitting in, and has to go somewhere.

Who would take him?  It does no good to cut him.  I suppose we could send him home a la Carmelo and Houston last year, but that expiring could do us some good next year.

So sit him on the bench.

Porzingis, Morant and Brandon Clarke all out tonight. 

Kind of bummed the Grizz rookies won't be playing. Wanted to get a look at their game. 

Will be interested to see how RC handles front court rotations. I'm guessing we see some Boban, but mostly compensate with more lineups that have 3 ball handlers

ThAt knocks Gabe was horrible. It wasn’t even about Seth and the lineup.

They are horrible at blocking out and slow way too many second chance points.

They fall in love with the 3 and keep taking it when it’s not falling instead of driving fit easy buckets and fouls.

They can’t defend bigs that can shoot either. Particularly Powell.

Gotta sure up those things.

Did you have a stroke?

Yes.  Think I was responding during the Cowboys game.  So yeah, I definitely had a stroke.

 

I was saying the Knicks game was horrible.

Boston has been great so far, really looking forward to the match up, even without Hayward.

Luka is ridiculous. If Dallas could hit any open looks they’d be up 10.

This female ref has more missed calls in her area than she has bad calls. That’s...impressive?

Flagrant pretty unlucky there. Obviously wasn’t trying to his his head, but did. Could the the difference.

Also, Kemba is good.

Dallas has to be the worst Q4 free throw shooting team in the association.

It's early in the year, but Porzingis has been pretty disappointing on both ends of the court. He plays so far from the basket on offense, which can be a benefit, but his TS% is at 51.8%. Defensiviely, he's had some great blocks, but our rebounding hasn't been all that stellar. I'd like to see Boban play a bit more as I think his defense would definitely help the team at least protect the rim and get rebounds, even if offensively he's not quite the best fit (his TS% and Offensive Rating are hilarious, however). 

Either way, we have to play Porzingis as his play will really drive whether this team makes the playoffs or not.

Man I hear ya but the dude hasn't played in the NBA for 2 seasons. There is certainly some adjustment to the speed of the game, the defense etc. It's easy to hit jumpers in practice with no one on you. He will get better. I don't think he can get back to all star level this year but next year onward you are looking at 2 Mavs as all stars with Luka starting. 

I will say his shot blocking is the part of his game closest to his previous level. Still has to work on shot selection, his D, and rebounding

If not the worst it's up there.  BIG issue with this team, and TBH if they hit their FT's late they win the Lakers, Nicks, and Portland games.

I'm not concerned yet because I sorta expected him to be rusty coming out. If he's still like this mid December I might start to worry. 

Plus it looks like the flow of the offense with him just isn't good right now. Looks like it'll take some time for him to feel comfortable.

I keep trying to talk myself into those, but I've seen so many great crowd sourced uniforms...I just can't. To be fair, we've had worse.

Those silver jerseys we opened the '03-04 year against LAL are pretty tough to beat (or to lose to, i guess?). I should have known that night that team was destined to be one of my least fav Mavs teams ever
