Willie pretty much said that Dallas D sucks (inexperienced is what he actually said) and the Kings wanted to exploit them, which didn't occur last Sat.
And against teams with "experienced" defenders TM will use the dump and chase claiming that they are so talented they have to get on top of them to make it harder on them. It's the same system regardless of who they are playing.
