... Welp, Dallas is still not really missing any shots. 11-15 from three in the first half. Fifteen (and counting) for the game. Well, credit to them. They were red-hot for four straight games; that's pretty amazing and rare. I'm perversely proud that the when the Celtics beat the Lakers in '08 and the Mavericks beat them this season, both teams had to be absolutely unconscious from the outside in order to do it.

And the obvious reason why Kobe is taking so many shots is because everyone else on the team, with the exception of Bynum, doesn't want to shoot the ball. They're open when they get the ball, but they're too afraid to shoot - and their indecisiveness is causing them to not be open anymore, so they're looking to Kobe to save them. He can't save them today.

They had a good run, back to back titles. They'll reload. They won't be away from the elite for long.
