Zero Wins and Three Losses - Seriously!?

My first thought as the game ended - there is now way the refs wouldn't have heard Avery yelling "timeout" as time ran down.

My second thought isn't repeatable. The hangover is real, and it's really annoying.

There were a few good things to take away from the game:

  • Dirk had an MVP type game
  • Devin was great at both ends
  • Buckner and Croshere obviously haven't learned the defensive rotations yet, but they will.
Of course none of that matters, the Mavs lost and have started the season 0-3. I haven't seen the Mavs win a meaningful game in their last seven tries.

And oh yeah, Josh Howard is probably out a week or two.

Life sucks for Mavs fans right now.

Josh Howard 7 7.7 Very Good game going before injury
DeSagana Diop 5 5.7 Can't play at that pace
Anthony Johnson 6 6 Had few good passes - pretty average
Jerry Stackhouse 6 6.3 Played hard but didn't shoot well tonight
Greg Buckner 6 6 Far better on on offense than defense
Devin Harris 9 7 Fantastic game - never stopped attacking - played very well defensively
Erick Dampier 6 6.3 Was OK given then pace and his few minutes
Austin Croshere 5 6.3 Quite a few defensive mistakes - shot 1/6
