In the first round of the playoffs, Dallas brought all the fears of Los Angeles to the surface.
They shouldn’t even let him catch the ball:
Luka Doncic hit the kind of shot you dreamed of. This is the cherry on Sunday’s performance and it can be said to be legendary. You will remember the 21-year-old superstar of the Dallas Mavericks who played with a sprained ankle. The Clippers split the second quarter. You may not remember the switch.
It is not clear why Jackson and Paul George did not switch the first off-court screen in the game. Kleiber set up this screen for Seth Curry. After that, Jackson needs to turn to Doncic more aggressively and refuse to pass, as Rivers said. This execution failure did not make people give up easily, nor did it provide any convenience, but it provided Doncic with the opportunity to do spectacular things. That’s what he needs.
Entering the series:
Tied for 2-2 after Dallas’ 135-133 overtime victory, Los Angeles’ defense should have tested Doric like never before. Instead, he improved the No. 2 Clippers’ scoring by decomposing the defense throughout the season. The Mavericks’ offensive scoring was the best ever. He scored 43 points, 13 assists, and 17 rebounds in the fourth game. His first game record was 42-9-7.
In the face of all difficulties:
Dallas is actually better than the regular season in terms of offense against the Clippers: from a record high of 115 points. Scored 9 points per 100 rounds, and averaged 117.1 points per 100 points to NBA.com. According to “Clean Glass” data, in the half-time, the percentage of the league’s top 100 jumped from 100.9 points to 102.3 points.
Los Angeles is more worried that it doesn’t seem to solve any problems. The Mavericks’ worst offensive game was the first game, and this was the only game where they did not score more than the league’s number one. Without Pozingis, they looked completely comfortable. Doncic sat on the bench for 55 minutes and they scored 123.8 points per 100 possessions.
