Default What is up with this uninspired play?

As I said, the Mavs just seem like they play uninspired anymore. I know, it's a long season,and all. but c'mon, the way they've been playing it's going to be a real LONG season.

let's look at their last 5 games.

Toronto - great thing that they came back and won, but they were down by 24 pts at one time. completely looked lost in the first half.

Houston - once again, great that they won, but also once again, were down by, what, 16 points.

Indy - were getting blown out once again. came back again only to lose.

Milwaukee - loss. enough said.

Washington - once again got ran out of the building.

I agree that their play has been terrible. Playing down to the competition. I wonder what Avery is doing at times. I know his theme is to keep every body stronger and try to keep the minutes down. But his substitution patterns just baffle me at times. How is anyone supposed to get in a flow? Diop hasn't been on the court as much, yet he's the only mobile big and does rebound and block shots. Too much small ball. That bit us in the butt against the Pacers when they got the rebound off the free throw that nailed them.

One thing that seems to be happening. When Jet isn't on this team is in trouble. No scoring off the bench. Jet's numbers last few games.

vs. WAS: 20 minutes, 3 points, 1/9 FGs, 1/6 3's, 0 FTs.

@ MIL: 25 minutes, 21 points, 7/15 FGs, 6/10 3's, 1/2 FTs. It was have been another awful game if he didn't catch fire late.

@ IND: 33 minutes, 10 points, 4/13 FGs, 2/7 3's, 0 FTs.

@ HOU: 30 minutes, 6 points, 3/9 FGs, 0/1 3's, 0 FTs.

Let's hope Avery, Jet and the Mavs start turning things around tonight.
