Kidd bringing in Lively early off the bench was a solid move. With one day of rest and no KP there's not been an answer for his energy.

They weren’t going to win this game unless they put in like their top 99.5% effort. Might as well be a blowout.

Hope yours works better than mine. Absolutely dud of effects here, almost like I got the offense at home.
If it makes you feel any better, I ate a $70 chocolate of ostensibly 4g of psilocybin to better enjoy DC’s Pride Parade last weekend only for it to turn out to be bunk. At least I rocked the “Proud Dad” gear.

They needed Oshae’s hair on fire energy in this one but it’s hard to know it’s an Oshae game until it’s too late.

There are some kernels of concern here for Dallas has made a few key adjustments and without KP it will be tough to close them out.

Honestly, this might be better than a close loss.

After this embarrassment, they are going to come out locked in next game

So... What percent are we worried right now? 1%? 5%? It's tough to balance how unlikely I think a series collapse is (extremely, extremely unlikely) with the lifelong effect it would have on my fandom.
Right now? 100%. By Monday 0%*

*All of this is subject to change

Bring in X and have him do one of these bullshit Luka hipchecks on Luka
Why does everybody think Tillman is some sort of Marty McSorely type goon that gets sent out there to pummel somebody on the other team? Literally dozens of posts like this over the run.

Kornet literally got thrown out of bounds and no call, refs are done for the night too. Let’s just call it.

I know you’re sad and angry and I get why. But this team has just won 10 in a row in the playoffs and is understandably a little tired. It’s not a mark of weakness.
Genuinely just curious. I don’t think they’re not a championship team or unworthy because of tonight but this seems like an aberration.

When Tillman hit that and-1 I think you had to be feeling OK with Dallas not coming out hot. It all fell apart after the next timeout.

Is it just really, really hard to put in the energy/ concentration they did in the first three games over four straight? Especially on the road?

"There have lots of blowouts in NBA finals history and they have no impact in the next game, but this one will for the Mavericks."

Okay.

The lone bright spot is that Breen has to vamp for the entire 4th q knowing that everyone's headed out to spend their Friday night doing something better. Suck it, Mike.

They've won 10 straight.. it's more unusual that they havne't lost on the road in the playoffs yet.

The really annoying thing is if you reversed games 3 and 4 everyone would be feeling good. Instead we get to feel like shit all weekend.
