“We were hitting in good condition. If it was open, we would hit it. There are a lot of players in this team who can decide. As long as we are open, we will correct the shots. We will do what we need to do, such as extra passes (leading to more easy shots). We are all confident. This team is confident that everyone will score (3 points). There is. “
Branson remains bullish, but Jason Kidd (head coach) says, “It would be great if (3 points) were decided, but if I dropped four in a row, it would be great.” You need to understand that you won’t hit the fifth run because you have to decide. That puts stress on the players and their teams. You’ll blow if you can’t stop your opponent on the other side (defense side). It will change to out, “he said.
Doncic, who recovered from 20 points in the first match and achieved over 40 points, said, “The opponent is the Warriors. It is a wonderful team and the team that has won the championship. We have to adjust our defense. We have to adjust our defense. I was 19 points behind … So it’s a tough situation. But I can’t look back. No matter what happens, I have to move forward. “
The Warriors were able to make a comeback against the Mavericks in the second half when the whole team regained their composure, but one of the factors was that they could effectively add points in the paint area.
The Warriors, who also led the paint area with a 44-32 in the first round, had a big difference of 62-30 in the second round. Doncic also set out to attack the paint area for the third round of the series, held on the 23rd.
“We didn’t attack paint a lot, but we had to do more like them. That team had two of the best shooters in the world ( Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson ). , It also attacks the paint, so I don’t think we should just rely on three. “
For Doncic’s Mavericks to win the series for the first time in Round 3 at home, it seems that not only 3 points but also effective points from the paint area will be necessary.
