|RE: A Few Thoughts on Mavs 95, Lakers 108||8|
|Reminded me of the 2006 Mavs. Forget everything else, valid or not, like scheduled loss or refs. When things got physical and the outside shot was not falling, the team didn’t respond well.
Yes there are things that both the players and coaches can do better. The surrounding cast around KP and Luka can also get better.
However part of physical play is just having the main studs go through that experience. When this team eventually loses a couple of times in the playoffs, Luka and KP will realize the value of better shots. You can’t always play like Steph and Dirk when you are not very good 3 pt shooters.
All this historical offense stuff is nice but when it is built on 3 pt shooting where the two best players are ironically not efficient long range shooters, it is fool’s gold that will get exposed as this team progresses in the playoffs. Shoot 3s but be ready to muck it up too. Games like last night will help tremendously.
