    Eight Points, Nine Seconds:
    Jonathan Auping: The Emergence of Darren Collison in Dallas

    “He’s done this in other stops. I don’t know how many games he started
    in Indiana, but he played well there as a starter. Then they made the
    switch, then they made the trade. They decided to go with Hill.”
    – Rick Carlisle on Darren Collison

    The early-season struggles of the Pacers obviously have a whole lot to do with the
    absence of Danny Granger. I am in no way trying to downplay anyone’s claim that the
    team would be playing better with Granger in the lineup. However, let us not forget that
    Granger is not the only member of last year’s Pacers who is not on the floor for them.

    By playoff time last year it seemed apparent that at some point in the offseason the
    Pacers would choose between either Darren Collison or George Hill. Hill was a free
    agent who might demand a decent pay raise and neither player seemed to thrive while
    having to split minutes. At times, it felt like Pacer fans had to be a part of either Team
    Hill or Team Collison and they had to be willing to defend their stance.

    And as you all know, the Pacers went with Hill. They gave him a $40 million contract
    and shipped Collison to Dallas (along with Dahntay Jones for backup center Ian
    Mahinmi).

    The problem with Collison in Indiana seemed to be inconsistency and sometimes an
    inability to stay involved. He gave good effort and seemingly had a good attitude, but
    sometimes he just didn’t have a huge impact on the game. He was a capable scorer,
    but when he tried to play the role of facilitator he looked more like a bystander. Fellow
    8p9s writer Tim Donahue mentioned that this was always the case for Collison in
    Indiana. He said that when Jim O’Brien was around, his coaching schemes were
    blamed, but it remained the same under Frank Vogel.

    Rick Carlisle is not having the same problems with Collison, however. Of course, we
    are still working with a small sample size, but so far Collison is thriving in Dallas.

    Before the Mavericks played the Raptors Wednesday night, Carlisle talked about what
    he has seen from Collison since he’s been a member of the Mavericks. “(He’s) even-
    tempered. He’s been aggressive. He’s made good decisions. He’s developing a feel for
    attacking and being aggressive offensively.”

    The feeling around those watching Collison this year is beginning to be that the point
    guard is playing well because...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s



    Two Man Game:
    Travis Wimberly: Thermodynamics - Week 3

    Last week around this time, the Mavs were flying high. They carried a 4-1 record and
    possessed what looked to be one of the best offenses in the NBA. But after some poor
    performances and a 1-3 record this week—including the franchise’s first-ever loss to
    the Charlotte Bobcats—the Mavs have some work to do. But hey, at least they didn’t
    fire their coach five games into the season.

    Let’s take a look at the Mavs’ hottest and coldest performances from Week 3.
    (Spoiler alert: Cold wins this week.)

    F I R E

    1) OJ Mayo
    With a couple caveats, it was another strong week for the shooting guard affably
    known as “Juice” (alternate nickname: “That guy who temporarily ruined USC’s
    basketball program”). Mayo shot 29-of-61 (48%) in the Mavs’ four games this week,
    including 10-of-20 (50%) from three-point range. He was the Mavs’ most consistent
    and productive scorer by a considerable margin, averaging exactly 22 PPG. For the
    season, Mayo’s true shooting percentage (64%) and effective field-goal percentage
    (60%) both rank in the top fifteen in the league among guards who have played
    more than negligible minutes. Mayo’s turnovers (3.5 per game this week) and
    comfort within the offense both remain issues. But if the expectation is for Mayo to
    be the team’s second scorer behind Dirk Nowitzki, he’s currently showing why that
    expectation is entirely fair.

    2) Chris Kaman’s Shooting
    Having watched Kaman miss his first nine million (loose approximation) shots
    against the Timberwolves on Monday night, my first inclination was that I wouldn’t
    be able to put his shooting on the hot list this week. Once I crunched the weekly
    numbers, however, Kaman made the cut even despite that bad outing. Kaman shot
    a combined 23-of-39 (59%) in this week’s games, including terrific shooting
    performances against the Knicks (86%) and the Wizards (83%). Only three starting
    centers have higher true shooting percentages than Kaman (63%): Samuel
    Dalembert, DeAndre Jordan, and Tyson Chandler. Along with Mayo, Kaman has
    been the Mavs’ most effective scorer this season.

    3) Uncle Ricky’s Temper
    Somebody ought to put Rick Carlisle on blood-pressure watch, because his
    numbers can’t be good after this week. First, he watched in Charlotte as his team
    turned in a comical late-game performance featuring mistake after bizarre mistake.
    When Carlisle reviewed the film of those final minutes against the Bobcats, one can
    only assume that he did so while blasting the Benny Hill theme in the background,
    driving around the room in a small plastic car, and sporting an oversized novelty
    hat. Carlisle’s frustration from the Charlotte circus boiled over to the Mavs’
    next game against Minnesota, a game that was less absurd but equally frustrating.
    With five minutes left...CONTINUE READING AT TWO MAN GAME

    I am genuinely happy to be playing a quality team tonight.

    Look, the team's confidence (and apparently OUR confidence in them) is at an all-time low.

    If we lose this game, well then I guess "we saw THAT coming... *flame*flame*flame*"

    But if we manage to turn in a solid game and win tonight, it very well may be that spark we need for our confidence!

    Collison vs Hill will be interesting, regardless of whatever else happens.

    I'm going to say what everyone else is already thinking: We choose the wrong guy this offseason, and it's going to hurt us big time tonight. It's as simple as that. I was right, and I was the only one on the board smart enough and brave enough to say it. Dahntay Jones is a much better hype guy than Jeff Pendergraph.

    Yup, although Collison shouldn't have that much of a problem since Hill isn't strong or big like the point guards Collison has trouble with.

    I really hope the Pacers surprise tonight and play well, but nothing has shown that will happen, and you know DC has had this pinned on his calendar since he was traded to Dallas.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Kaman is going to be a hard matchup for Roy, Marion is going to be a hard matchup for Paul.

    I found the answer to this team
    my gut feeling: ORLANDO JOHNSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    On a serious note we need to give Augustin or lance a shot at starting PG, don't think Hill can run this team, he is more of a scorer

    Lance does need to be the point guard IMO and Hill could be our main scorer at SG.

    You know if this team follows the mentally weak Pacers platform of the past, then they will probably play up tonight and win.
