“I gotta go 75% for Luka… He’s a lousy shooter from 3-point and free throw line”

Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic was one of the most impressive players in the knockout stages. After helping the Mavericks beat the Utah Jazz in the opening round, Doncic carried Dallas past the popular Phoenix Suns to advance to the Western Conference finals.

Although Doncic was sensational, it wasn’t enough in the Western Conference finals. Upstream against the dominant Golden State Warriors lineup, the Mavericks were 3-0 down and on the verge of being eliminated.

Speaking recently on “Undisputed,” analyst Skip Bayless said that, while Doncic has been somewhat sensational, he still deserves to be blamed for 75% of Dallas’ drop in the series.

So far against Golden State, Doncic has averaged 34.0 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game while shooting 45.3% and 41.4% from the three-point range.

Bayless says:

“I have to blame 75% of it on Luka. …He’s a lousy shooter from three and free throws.”

The Dallas Mavericks are suddenly facing a must-win situation in the upcoming 4th game against the Golden State Warriors.

After losing a couple of road games, it was hoped that Dallas would return home to take care of the business in game 3. Unfortunately; The Mavericks put in a nightmare performance, leaving the team struggling to shoot from three-point range.

Although superstar Luka Doncic played brilliantly in game 3, Dallas still lost with the final score 109-100. Doncic will end the game with 40 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists.

If the Mavericks want any chance of at least creating some momentum in this series, they’re going to have to shoot more effectively.

Max Kellerman insists Luka Doncic doesn’t make his teammates better like Magic or Bird.JJ Redick: “Magic & Bird played with the Hall of Famers. Luka is playing with picks on the 2nd round, guys with no experience like DFS. The quality of his shot has improved for his teammates – #1 for the last 2 weeks. “https://t.co/7qxnQVHl08

Dallas shot 13 to 45 in just game 3 (28.9%). Against one of the Golden State Warriors’ most lethal shooting teams, the Mavericks couldn’t have made it easier for their opponents.

While Doncic has impressed, he’ll need to take it to another level if Dallas wants to turn this into a series.
