The Mavs might not even make the freaking play-in…

Twice stung by the Hornets in the space of 3 days. Luka is holding up his end of the bargain. Kyrie on the other hand was passing up shots and finished with 18 points off 15 shots.

The Mavs need to use Javale McGee. At least he’d eat up some of the rebounds and second chance points this team is giving away.

Dirk all over again. Mavs have a track record for failing to put good enough pieces around a star. Mavs basically need Luka, another borderline star, and 3 and d guys. Easier said than done obviously with the premium on 3 and d guys in the league nowadays.

Interested to see if Jokic gets a 3rd straight MVP. Prior to the season the narrative was that he would need to be on the top team and perform the same as the previous 2 seasons and it looks likely the Nuggets get the 1 seed in the West and Jokic has more or less maintained his MVP form.
