So I'm reading an article by Sefko this morning about the Mavs small lineup and their jump shooting tendencies...
The Mavericks scored only four points in the paint in the final period. That's because they were busy hoisting one jump shot after another. Nine were launched from 3-point range. They made two.
...and for some reason I'm suddenly reminded of a sketch from one of my favorite shows of all time.
According to 82games.com, only 27% of the Mavs field goal attempts are "inside shots" -- third lowest in the NBA.
"Jesus said take it to the hole!"
This should be Rick Carlisle's new motto. It should be on those black vinyl banners surrounding the practice court.
