Default What the Mavs need to do in Game 3 to win

1. Go to Dirk 75% of the time, let him create for himself or teammates.
2. Get Marion back to scoring off the break and in transition. Stop all these isos
3. Close out on the 3 pt shooters! Westbrook and durant will get their bs calls no matter what, but shut out the other players
4. Attack the basket! Too many 3 pointers.

They won beforenthe Perkins trade, when OKC was average. Hell Dallas would be down 2-0 right now if not for Dirk playing the best gameof his career and Westbrook having hisbworst

Ha. Dirk played almost as well in Game (10-17). He's been easily the best player in the series.

I don't expect Dallas to allow your team so many open 3s in the next one

Dallas needs to work the ball into dirk more.

He had like 8 or 9 shots going into the 4th quarter.. they could definitely use more offensive possesions running through dirk.

Defensively, try to shut down westbrook.. make him take mid range jumpers and play everyone tight. There's nothing you can do about durant. The guy has such a quick release and is automatic from anywhere on the court.

Every possession Dirk is on the floor, make sure he touches it

1. Never put Haywood in a pick and roll, ever. It becomes a pick and stand, with a double team on the ball handler and time wasted.

2. Pay attention to only cook and harden on the 3pt line, let everyone else shoot as much as they want from 15ft and out.

3. Force feed Dirk BEFORE the fourth quarter.

How about not letting OKC shoot 55,7%?
