Caron Butler: 13 points, 6 boards, 4-16 FGM-A, 4 turnovers.

The game is not over yet but this is what it looks like with 4 min left of play.

Although the 6 boards is pretty nice.

+ a steal and a block. He hasn't even had one practice yet, what do you expect...for him to click on all cylinders?

1 steal and 1 block is not really that great lol.

And actually in terms of shooting, yes.

Haywood: in 15 min off the bench, 7 points, 6 boards, not bad for him.

If you're gonna bash a player, at least give him credit where it's due.

You expect a player that just came in, and played their first game with a whole new team, with new plays, new players, to drop like 25?

way to overreact, I say dirk was 2 of 12 in the second half tonight. Right???

they are not playing street ball so they need practice with the new team to get it going.... its not like they had 2-3 days to practice with the team.

Did any of you see the defense he played on Durant? Forced to him 9-28 shooting playing lock-down defense.

But offensively, yes, he was atrocious. But so was the whole Maverick team in the 2nd half. (especially 3rd quarter)

From the trade went down, i saw Butler to mAv as a SLIGHT (VERY LITTLE) upgrade over Howard, but Haywood was a steal, that is what is truly going to help them out A LOT!

they will be fine. it takes time for the team to mesh. they could struggle for another couple weeks even.

Shame on Caron coming to a brand new team and not knowing any plays.:pity:

This. Durant had to run a play for himself with under 20 seconds to go so he could get his 25 points. His team was already up by 10+ and it took that to reach his 25... Butler struggled shooting, but his defense was great. Now with Marion and Butler, Dallas has some nice 1 on 1 defenders.

It's going to take a while to integrate two new pieces like that.
With Dampier down, that's two new starters. So it'll be a while for them to get comfortable.

I don't expect the team to fully "gel" until atleast next week. Today is the second night of a back to back coming right out of AS weekend and they have another back to back on Friday.

Your title is misleading then.

what the heck did you expect? that he would come into a new team with new offensive/defensive stratagies and put up a show?? He probably has had just 1-2 practice sessions with his new teammates. Cmon..Be realistic

I told you that Butler is low percentage shooter!

This was just one game but, I wasn't impressed with dallas before the trade they are not a dominant team.
