DALLAS -- A day after Monday's 94-92 preseason-opening loss to New Orleans, Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle is still upset with the 28 turnovers his team committed against the Pelicans.
"We worked on it today,'' Carlisle said after Tuesday's practice at American Airlines Center. "I think we just got to reiterate the importance of ball security.
"You've got to drill it. You drill it with transition drills -- just continuing to stress the importance of taking care of the all.''
Of the 15 Mavs who played against the Pelicans, 12 of them had at least one turnover. And nine of them had at least two turnovers, led by a game-high five turnovers from rookie point guard Gal Mekel.
