KEVIN LOVE: STARTING TO PAY DIVIDENDS


A lot of people thought Kevin Love would fail miserably, and many experts project him to be a bust. He seems to be doing very well for an undersized, over-weight, 20-year old rookie. Third best PER for rookies behind Speights and Oden.

Love had a rough shooting slump the first couple of months, but has adjusted well and is now hitting at .543 for Jan. He would have been great for this team even though he's not very athletic - think Rob Kurz with more skill and intangibles. We could use his rebounding and pinpoint outlet passes to spark the fast break. He hasn't shot many 3 pointers, but the ability to hit them is there. Biedrins would love playing next to Love - smart, big bodied, unselfish, and skilled.

Notes
  1. starting lineups: Ellis / Crawford / Jackson / Azubuike / Giedrins vs. Kidd / Wright / Howard / Nowitzki / Dampier
  2. Defend Howard in 1st Quarter 2) Be aware of their transition game 3) outrebound their small lineup
  3. Ellis hits first shot, top of key; wasn't falling for him before; misses next jumper from same distance
  4. Jackson hits his first shot, foot-on-line long 2
  5. Nowitzki 93/97 ft for Jan.
  6. Jackson is shooting well tonight; 2 three pointers in a row!! perfect shooting
  7. Warriors playing extremely well early
  8. GS 16 DAL 10; 7:12 1Q
  9. Crawford hits 3 pt shot
  10. Antoine Wright having career game...at least to start the game

  13. GS 19 DAL 24; 3:45 1Q
  14. Jackson ends drought with jumper in the paint, no call on Kidd swipe
  15. Monta in for Crawford; Jackson, Maggette, Morrow, Biedrins
  16. Maggette hits first shot; long 2
  17. Bass guarding Maggette; easy blow by
  18. Maggette hits 3 at the buzzer
  19. GS 29 DAL 31 end of 1Q
  20. Ellis / Morrow / Jackson / Maggette / Turiaf to start 2Q
  21. Jackson continues to shoot lights out despite being face guarded
  22. Bass playing well for Mavs coming off bench
  23. Maggette with tough baseline fade away swish; doing everything
  24. Turiaf gets kneed in the groin; Biedrins subs in
  25. GS 38 DAL 44; 6:14 2Q
  26. Randolph hits turn around jumper at end of shot clock; good awareness
  27. Mavs pulling away with 14 to 2 run

  31. Mavs with 38 point quarter
  32. GS 47 DAL 69 end of 1st half
  33. Biedrins tips in ball after 3 offensive boards (looked like offensive basket interference) apparently, idiot stat crew did not credit Biedrins with any offensive boards
  34. Kidd playing passing lanes well
  35. GS 58 DAL 77; 7:40 3Q
  36. Ellis 2/11 fg
  37. looks like the league officials are keen to Crawford's leg kicks on long jumpers - not getting the call much anymore
  38. Biedrins and Turiaf playing together

  46. GS 70 DAL 92 end of 3Q

  48. good to see Randolph getting some run; working hard for post position; dunk after Mags draws his man away
  49. Mavs not allowing fastbreak opportunites and early offense - forcing them into half-court game; not good for a team lacking a true PG that could get anywhere on the floor and create for others
  50. GS 79 DAL 103; 8:10 4Q
  51. 1st fastbreak bucket at 6:05 4Q

  53. GS 93 DAL 117 Final
  54. No defense. Limited passing. Lots of isolation offense. Got killed on the boards. Poor shooting from the normally potent backcourt.
  55. Warriors remain 6th worst team in the NBA at 14-32



Postgame Quotes

Don Nelson

On Tonight's Game:
“Well, we were not very good tonight. It’s the first time that Jamal [Crawford] has played with that group together. Jamal had been out for three games I think. And it looked they hadn’t played together and one of the worst games we’ve had in about six weeks. So I was disappointed with our play but so be it – they had their way with us and they deserved to win. They were the better team tonight.”

“I just didn’t think that we did a very good job with any part of the game or followed our game plan or anything. We just didn’t look like a very good team tonight. We’ve been playing pretty well, but that’ll happen. And we know with Monta [Ellis] we’re going to take a step back before we go forward, probably quite a few times this year until he gets back and he’s certainly not ready, yet. But, we put him out there and grow with him and go through the growing pains that we know are coming.”

“We didn’t anything going. Everything was a struggle for us tonight. And you can credit their defense if you want, but I would think it’s our lack of movement and execution and a whole bunch of other things.”



Stephen Jackson
On Tonight's Game:
“I think the biggest problem today was effort. We haven’t had a TV game in a long time, and for us to come out and not play up to the level that we should’ve played, the level we’ve been playing at home, is upsetting. I think that’s the biggest thing Coach is upset about. I just wish we would’ve went down fighting. We didn’t match their intensity. We gave them any shot – I think they were shooting like 67% at halftime. We didn’t do anything on defense to get them out of their comfort zone, and they just made all their shots.”

“They got a whole bunch of open looks. We had a lot of defensive errors, and we didn’t step up our game plan. We’ve got to man-up and guard our guys, and we didn’t do that tonight at all.”

Postgame Quotes

Don Nelson
On Coming Together On The Homestand:
"Actually, we played better in the games we lost than we played tonight. I don’t know that was possible through all the transition that we’re going through right now, I don’t think we’re going to even answer that question for another couple of weeks, but we’ll keep doing what we’re doing.”


On Corey Maggette:
“Eight shots and 20 points, that’s amazing. I thought he really played well. We didn’t have to overplay anyone tonight so that was good. We don’t have many of these games this year, this was a good one to have.”


Monta Ellis
On Tonight's Game:
“We are doing good. Everybody is getting out and running. My fast break points are getting back up to where it was. Everybody is just out there having fun right now.”


Corey Maggette
On Tonight's Game:
“Coming off the bench, I’m just trying to give this team a lift. That’s my job right now. I’m just glad our team came out with the win. The last couple of games our team has been playing really well and we’ve just come up short in a matter of five seconds. So it’s good to get a win tonight.”


On Coming Off The Bench:
“Like I told Nellie, whatever is going to help this team, and it’s helping. We’ll stick with it and hopefully it works out. I’m just going tocontinue to play extremely hard and help this team.”


On Having Monta Ellis Back:
“It’s great to have him back. He adds a total different dimension to our team, with speed and attacking the basket. It’s good. He’s still just getting better each game. If you didn’t know he was hurt, you wouldn’t even know he was hurt.”
