Dallas Hoops Fancast – Season 3, Episode 27
The Dallas Mavericks have been one of the worst teams in the league during clutch-time situations. Their offense tanks, their defense drops, and they lose games. Why? After all, they have one of the best players in the game right now, Luka Doncic, and another big-time player in Kristaps Porzingis.
We looked into the numbers to see where exactly the Mavericks struggle and what they can do to improve.
They also have other defensive issues. They struggle to guard the mid-range area and over half of opponent shots are open or wide open. What can they do to fix that?
In this episode, we also discuss the on-going problems with opponent defense. Teams are being allowed to play the Mavericks physically, even fouling them, without being help accountable by the referees. It’s becoming ridiculous. Will it stop?
Finally, we have some fun with a new segment, Blurred Lines, and talking about the potential of a Luka Doncic vs. Trae Young matchup in the 3-Point Content at All-Star weekend. (Side note: Make sure you vote for Luka!)
