    Yes the 4th qtr sucked bigtime, but there were plenty of good shot, open looks that just didn't fall. Funny how many "and 1's" the Mav's got, yet Nurk, & Collins get slammed down across the head, and the arse clown ref's got amnesia.

    And funny how when the Blazers defenders went vertical, fouls got called, but again Scott Foster and company didn't see the Mav's doing the same thing to our penetrators like Dame.

    I read that it could take 4-5 years to settle Paul's estate, so I doubt the team sells before that happens.

    How many more timeouts did you want him to call?

    Huge point. Nurks last foul was completely vertical and outside the restricted zone.

    I think the Addition of a guy thats supposed to play for two guys who werent playing or playing much anyways has the rotations a bit jagged, and in some ways Stotts is trying to figure things out again. Zach and Meyers for instance havent played together (not saying thats bad), but they did most of the year, their minutes seem to be getting split up.
    What dissapointed me was the turnovers and bad possessions. The only time in that entire game the Blazers played good basketball on both ends was in the 2nd quarter the bench played exceptional for about 6-7 minutes. Even when Dame went off in the third, they only won that quarter 35-31.

    Far as who is to Blame, probably a mix of all them, and the refs too sure.

    A win tomorrow night and we’ll all feel much better.

    The only thing I thought was glaringly bad scheme wise in the 4th was going over every screen for Luka, they never changed it up or trapped him either. He kept getting his defender on his back playing from behind, and basically he figured that out and was pretty much playing 5 on 4.

    Interesting you should say last 5 mins. With 3:12 there was a stoppage and lineup change and again at 1:28 left in the quarter. Kind of looks like Stotts was all over that. Maybe you would have like to see another. And i can't say it would not have helped but it seems he did indeed make adjustments during timeouts. One was a TV timeout but still a Timeout.
    Take a look.

    Seems like we more often hear that he doesn't want his friends to be traded. Pretty much the only thing that bothers me about Dame.

    Didn't watch the game, but this tells you everything you need to know. The Fixster was in. People like @Mediocre Man can say whatever they want, but fact is NBA's oldest trick in the book is to get a key big in foul trouble, changes everything.

    Nurkic and Collins were being called for a lot of stuff, no doubt. It wasnt called consistently on both ends in my opinion either. The Blazers did a lot of the damage to themselves though. Turnovers, overall sloppy play, stretches of bad defense, they choked pretty hard today.

    I didn't say Layman outplayed Harkless but that's irrelevant. Hood probably played Luka better than anyone on the team, including Mo. You can't have Layman out there (or Hood) and expect them to produce amazing results when they aren't getting many opportunities. Clearly both are known as offensive weapons. No use in having them out there if you're not preaching ball movement so those guys can take advantage of possible mismatches. Like Nurk tonight, he should have gotten WAY more than 11 shots when they literally had no one who could guard him.

    We have a low IQ coach who isn't trying to exploit mismatches.

    You don't get calls..get in foul trouble..brick free throws..turn the ball over...you won't win many games...we did all those things which is on the team for bad execution and no GM or coach's fault...make even two more free throws and that's a win..I've never seen us shoot so badly from the line

    I think that's a cop out. We turned the ball over because there was too much selfish play. Something we revert to 1 in every 3 games because the coach doesn't hold his star players accountable. This comes from coaching. If the coach is letting his star guards jack up any shot they want without sharing the ball and exploiting mismatches (like the one Nurk had with anyone on the Mavs roster) then loss is also on the coach.

    Players will never be 100% perfect on the floor. They'll give up turnovers, miss shots they usually make and miss defensive assignments. But if you limit your mistakes as a coach, it shouldn't take a perfect game from your players.
