    Fun fact: All the food at the Mavericks team buffet is mashed up like baby food so they won't choke on that too

    Imagine being the mavs and deciding to double harden after the first and he still drops his 49 on 70 percent shooting with only 1 turnover

    Harden was decent. The team as a unit was awful. But they always talk the talk about defense but never improve.

    IMO they go in and out of it. Obviously some of it determined by opponent/matchup, back to backs, lack of focus you name it but let’s be real, small ball doesn’t lend itself to consistently great defense. Be it team or individual player.

    Not to mention this was the first real game back. Harden was all over the damn floor. He got back and stole a couple passes that in the past would’ve NEVER happened in the 4th QTR. We need to pump the brakes a bit, enjoy the win, and let them continue to gel on D.

    The cure is to be a super athlete. Think about it.

    Decent. :D

    Dude, he was a savant.

    That was Jordan and Larry in their primes and then some. It’s unfortunate when people can’t hear Jimi.

    I'm glad we traded for Westbrook, Chris Paul can't make all those athletic plays on D.

    I wasn’t able to tune in until the 3qtr. I’m too lazy to figure it out but how far back did we come back from?

    Green needs more reps with Big 4, even if he does not start.

    Especially to close out games.

    It's pretty unbelievable that a dude who was sick can play the usual Mike D'Antoni starter minutes 40-60 minutes a game
    at such a high level.

    He was clearly quicker than everyone else at the end since everyone ran out of gas.
