    1. Wake up, Cronin! Start a game thread. I know the 2011 Mavs comparisons all season are getting repetitive, but Christ, the similarities seem to be increasing!

      A rolling ‘Melo = Dirk
      Felton = Kidd (sorta)
      Shump = DeShawn Stevenson
      Prigs = J.J. Barea
      K-Mart = Marion (sorta)
      J.R. = Terry

      Chandler’s looking good on O so far. He’s going to have to put a body on Ibaka.

    2. Yeah, the refs are annoying. ‘Melo needs to perfect the head fake to get the defender off his feet and then lean into him for the foul call a la Wade, LeBron, and Gallinari.

    3. Good move putting perk on Melo. Intuitively he wants to drive, but ibaka is there for help. Melo needs to adjust to this and find Tyson cutting when he drives In The second quarter
