The Mavericks shot a season-worst 15.8 percent from three-point land tonight. They finished 3 of 19 and just couldn't get anything to fall. Jason Terry attempted 7 on the night, but at least he made 2 of the Mavs' made threes. Dirk was 0-3 and three other players were 0-2. Excluding the defensive woes, their inability to hit from long range was a big reason the Mavericks struggled...a traditional tell-tale sign of fatigue. Playing their third game in four nights, its obvious the Mavericks could stand to rest their legs.
Unfortunately for them, they got to hop on a plane tonight and travel to Milwaukee for another back-to-back. Their next multiple day rest period doesn't come until December 22 when they will have off four days. Until then, let's see how that preseason conditioning pays off.
