DALLAS -- OJ Mayo missed practice Monday with the flu. His game lately also hasn't been up to par.
Mayo was 8-of-12 from the field and 2-of-2 from three-point territory and scored 26 points against Philadelphia last Tuesday. But in the last three games Mayo is just 9-of-33 from the field, 1-of-11 from three-point land and tallied a total of only 25 points against Miami, Memphis and San Antonio.
Coach Rick Carlisle offered no excuses for Mayo's declining numbers.
"The caliber of competition has raised, which has made it more difficult for all of us,'' Carlisle said. "I don’t think that this is a day to make this about one guy’s struggles.
"We win and lose as a team. That’s where our collective mindset has got to be at.''
