Rick Carlisle didn't save the doomed Mavericks in Game 1

The Mavericks were going to lose on Saturday, but a poor day from Carlisle made it historically bad. The Mavericks rely on Rick Carlisle to make up for so many of the team's flaws. His genius is never more glaringly obvious than when he is bad. Dallas' Game 1 loss to the Thunder on Saturday was historically bad, and Carlisle blamed himself for the 108-70 loss. "I've got to get these guys ready to play," Carlisle said. "It's pretty clear. We had some struggles early. We were not the team we've been the past two weeks and I take a great deal of responsibility for that. I gotta do a better job...

Dirk Nowitzki on game 1 loss: "We got embarrassed tonight"

Rick Carlisle and Dirk Nowitzki dish on the Mavericks' horrendous game one loss. Rick Carlisle Opening statement I've got to get these guys ready to play. It's pretty clear. We had some struggles early. We were not the team we've been the past two weeks and I take a great deal of responsibility for that. I gotta do a better job getting ready for game 2. On Justin Anderson's lack of playing time during the first three quarters We were playing veterans. We played veterans predominantly during the Utah game, which was the biggest game of the year. He's obviously going to more involved going...

Mavericks final score: Thunder demolish Dallas in historically bad 108-70 loss

Well I guess that just happened. Welp. Welp. Welp. Welp. Look I'm not going to sugarcoat it. I didn't expect Dallas to win this game (or the series), but holy shit that was awful. The Mavs got dominated more thoroughly than the Rockets today, and I didn't think that was possible. All I can say is that I hope most of you were watching the Stars playing fun hockey and taking a 2-0 lead instead of the first half of this game. I'll probably keep this brief, since I'm sure everyone wants to forget this game as quickly as possible. But there are a few things we need to discuss. What the hell was...

Rick Carlisle is 'very concerned' about JJ Barea's groin injury

Barea clearly wasn't at full strength in the first half and the head coach thinks he aggravated the injury. J.J. Barea was ruled out for Game 1 at halftime with the groin strain that cost him two of the Mavericks' final three games of the season. Rick Carlisle inserted Barea into the starting lineup to begin Saturday's game, but the pesky Mavericks guard scored just two points on 1-of-6 shooting in 16 minutes. After the game, Carlisle expressed deep concern about Barea's injury. I'm very very concerned. I think something happened. I don't think it was something where it was just tight. I...
