Sporting events will always be vehicles for controversy and antagonizing viewpoints due in large part to the fact that they are refereed. If players were asked to referee themselves, every game would end in a brawl or at least something approaching one. As such, professional referees are asked to live up to a very high standard, especially during the course of a sport’s championship matchup, and the NBA is no different. The men and women that make up the NBRA have spent much of their lives accomplishing t ..read more

Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via Getty Images Luka Doncic steps up whenever he needs to, and Irving could learn something from his running mate’s mentality Kyrie Irving’s journey to this moment has been a long and winding one. His basketball resume speaks for itself, and his highlight tapes require no context or subtitles. As one of the most skilled players of his generation or any other, his basketball talent has never been questioned. He has never had to figure out how to shoot or create or finish at the rim, those things came naturally to him. What he has had to learn, is how to lead and how to ..read more

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images There is a massive, under-discussed, experience gap in this series. The Dallas Mavericks find themselves down 2-0 to the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals after losing 105-98 Sunday night in Boston. It is unfamiliar territory for this year’s team, having won Game 2 on the road in every series of this postseason run. But that isn’t the only unfamiliar territory. The finals themselves, and a run this deep into the playoffs, is new for nearly every player in the Mavericks rotation. It’s an underdiscussed aspect of this series, and is playing itsel ..read more

The Celtics have neutralized the Mavericks defense’s biggest strength in the NBA Finals

Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty Images Dallas’ defense owned the rim in these playoffs until now The Mavericks defensive turnaround since the All-Star break isn’t rocket science: Dallas got bigger, longer, more athletic at the trade deadline, and loaded up the paint to wall off the rim, daring teams to punish them with three point shooting. It wasn’t a bad gamble, because even the best three point shooters are only making anywhere from 40-48 percent of their open threes for the most part, while a league average percentage at the rim is around 64 percent. There is variance in shooting a jumper comp ..read more

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Getty Images The Dallas Mavericks are now down 2-0 in the Finals The Dallas Mavericks lost Game 2 of the NBA Finals 105-98 to the Boston Celtics. Neither team was able to make shots early outside of Luka Doncic. The Mavericks were visibly frustrated with the level of physicality with which the Celtics are allowed to play. The starters outside of Doncic were 1-of-11 on threes which allowed the Celtics to load up the defense on Doncic. Doncic clearly appeared interested in attacking Tatum. It was all for not though as the Celtics appeared destined to win esp ..read more
