On paper this looks like a huge mismatch. Have nobody that can check Dirk..only Ill Will could make him work but he's ultimately too small. Nobody that can stay in front of Ellis. Last time we faced Dalembert..he was pretty much Shaq.
That group can score against any will. If we are playing our best defense, which is hope they miss open shots, we're going to lose...by a good margin.
But the good news is that they will come into this on a second night of a back to back. Have to take advantage of that. Face them again on Monday....so if we're going to take a game..it's got to be this one.
I really wanted Ellis during free agency and now look at him, he is playing great in Dallas. Tough game.
Err, not really an advantage because of a B2B, they were up 30 at half against Utah last night.
Calderon can't guard anybody and Ty against him is the best match up we have for the day. Super aggressive Ty needed.
Dirk played 32, Marion played 32, Dalembert played 29, Calderon played 30, and Ellis played 38 minutes. Even if it was against Utah, still playing back to back games...still dealing with the altitude.
Got to dictate tempo.
In hindsight, probably would of been ideal for our SG woes. He actually scores. However, he is a bit of Nate Rob'ish with his shot selection..and we all know how ineffective his shot selection is.

Does anyone have a good link for the game?
Evan still hasn't seen the court since the 2nd quarter of last game. **** Shaw.
Can't find a decent feed at all
Normally it's not an issue to watch the games because I have league pass, but I'm at work right now

I've found an audio feed to the game and it sounds like the game tonight is pretty exciting. 3s are falling left and right.
Turnovers and free throw shooting have killed us this year.
