Naz is always good for 1 or 2 big games Conley is usually steady, and jaden although playing great lately, has been cancelled out by Alexander walker being garbage lately. I hope they keep the team together with a few minor roster changes because if ant continues to improve and Kat doesn’t have a historically bad stretch we will be right in the thick of it again, Conley would be the only question mark but I think he has 1 more season in him

    When are we going to acknowledge that the Mavs defense makes for a large part for the shooting inefficiencies of the wolves?! The Mavs rim protection makes it to where the wolves have to rely on jump shots and the Mavs have such a good perimeter defense that they won’t give up too many good looks. The Wolves don’t have much in the way of mid range shots so they’re taking a ton of threes out of rhythm and missing them
