Mavs’ epic court misplacement moment vs Warriors draws ridicule from NBA community

Dallas Mavericks once more made headlines, but not for their skillful play, but rather for their lack of concentration. Following the release of a video of the Mavs’ incorrect guard, NBA fans heavily criticized the team on Twitter.

The Dallas Mavericks and Golden State Warriors game on Wednesday was significant for both teams since they are still vying for positions in the West. On that particular day, the Golden State Warriors clawed out possibly their biggest victory of the year.

While the Dallas Mavericks were not focused on their match, the Warriors put themselves abreast of every other team in NBA  beating the Mavs 127-125. As a result, the Dubs achieved their second consecutive two-game road victory streak this year.

The Mavs dig their own graves

In the third quarter, Dallas’ coach Jason Kidd requested a timeout. The Mavs appeared to have forgotten exactly where their court was when they came back into the game since all five of their players were positioned at the wrong end of the court. As a result, during an inbound play, these players chose to guard the incorrect end of the court. The Golden State then received a free dunk as a result of their incredible Shaqtin’ Fool moment. This bizarre movement pushed the Warriors to 38-36 and the Mavs to 36-37.

NBA supporters criticized them on Twitter following the game, raising concerns about their level of awareness throughout. Nobody, not even the coaching staff or the players on the bench, informed their teammates of their terrible error. Several supporters raised questions about their coach about his direction and coaching expertise.

Despite being a professional club, they came across in their yesterday’s game almost as a new chief team. This is indeed a horrible experience for all the Maverick fans as in such a crucial game the loss will fall much hard on them. Mavs should be more careful about their defense as regarding this their performance is going dreadful day by day.

Due to their terrible error, which cost them two vital points, they are already far behind the warriors and more ramifications of their mistakes will likely appear in the future.
