Luka Doncic looking for form with the Dallas Mavericks: “He hasn’t found his rhythm yet”

by archysport

With the exception of the blowout at the LA Clippers, the Dallas Mavericks haven’t arrived this season. This also applies to Luka Doncic, who has not yet found a rhythm. Mavs coach Rick Carlisle openly admits this, but is not worried about the Slovenian.

“I had tired legs today, but that shouldn’t be an excuse,” said Doncic after the blowout against Charlotte (99: 118), in which the Slovenian himself only scored 12 points (4/10 FG). The last time the All-Star posted so few points over a year ago against the Denver Nuggets, the game against Miami in December 2019, where he had to leave the field injured after two minutes, was excluded.

Even Rick Carlisle did not go unnoticed by Doncic’s difficulties in the first few games. “It is obvious that Luka has not yet found his rhythm,” said the coach, who is not worried about it. “He just needs a few games. He’s on the right track and I have no doubts about that.”

In the previous four games, the guard has put on 23.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 6.3 assists, but the throw in particular raises question marks. So far, Doncic has only hit two of his 21 attempts from a distance, against Charlotte even two airballs were there again. The Slovenian only scored two threesomes against the Clippers.
