The Dallas Mavericks lost the season opener 106-102 to the Phoenix Suns The Mavericks just got off to a slow start and couldn’t get into an offensive groove with chances of winning in the clutch but the Mavs still seem haunted by those demons too Here are some numbers I noticed at the start of the season:

It was a slow, sloppy start to the game for the 21-year-old MVP favorite. Luka started the game 8-0 from the field. Early on it didn’t seem as if he had his usual touch on the edge and tried to keep the easy ones Make in Color He ended the night on respectable numbers, numbers most NBA players would love, but it wasn’t good enough when the Mavs start the season 0-1

10 out of 12 from the free throw line This is a very welcome sight for those who have followed Luke’s previous career in the NBA, a career 74 percent free throw

0 of 6 from the three-point country, including a failure in clutch time when the Mavs needed him most for a player who always seems to get what he wants when attacking the paint, all fights get off the three-point line frustrating Mavs fans Luka had the poor shot selection after the game during the media session We’ll see if anything changes in the future

Josh Richardson, Tim Hardaway Jr and Jalen Brunson as all second-best goalscorers with 12 points Dallas definitely needs a more aggressive production from these and other guys, especially since Kristaps Porzingis is paused for the next games. Can Richardson or Hardaway score more than 18 points next to Luka in the night? I think so can Maxi shoot better than 28 percent of 3? I think it just has to happen

It was a sloppy game I’d be lying if I said the Suns’ 18 sales were all down to that new and improved Mavs defense that we’ve heard all about BUT I’ll say Josh Richardson is the Passed eye test when it came to defending Devin Booker and Chris Paul on the ball.He will continue to work with Dorian Finney-Smith to guard the opposing team’s best guards if the Mavs can fix some of their offensive issues they are in Having witnessed this game in the future, look to the defense of Josh Richardson to influence many wins this season for the Mavs

Dallas Mavericks, Suns
