The Mavericks starred in a 3-point shot in their Game 4 victory over the Suns. And this time the light did not come from Luka Doncic, 1/10 behind the arch. Along with Davis Bertans (4/6) and Bullock-Dinwiddy’s husband (at 2/5 and 2/4 respectively), he is Dorian Finney Smith Who distinguished himself by 8/12, and scored all 24 of his points on the outside shot.
“When he plays like that, when he’s aggressive and doesn’t bet his shot but just takes the ball, he’s as good as anyone else.”His coach Jason Kidd rejoiced. “We needed this reinforcement and it helped us a lot”.
Eight three-pointers, 24 points, zero dribbles
It’s also a wonderful revenge for this unpolished player who spent time, first through his defense and then in this role as a shooting post, to find his marks over his six years in Dallas to get there. Two regular seasons in a row the success rate exceeds 39% by far. Title rewarded with a nice season extension: $52 million over four years.
“In the beginning, Rick Carlisle only told me to shoot three points if the ball came to me at the end of possession. I was now told to take the picture once I was in good shape. It’s a reward for the work you’ve done that the whole team took note of.”fell after failing the record 3 of the franchise playoff record held by Jason Terry. “When I made five three-pointers, Luca said to me, ‘You’re going to get more.’ When LD told me that, I had no doubts I would have other situations.
That’s what really happened, “DoDo” kept shooting from afar, not taking the slightest dribble before shooting, and he put two important baskets from the end by six minutes to keep the teams.
Expected modifications in the game 5
His heat stroke should be accompanied by adjustments to the next game, as Monty Williams has clearly tasted a little at the Texas “role players” festival, even if he admits to carrying his share of responsibilities.
“We have to respect Vinnie-Smith more than we did. He has an impact on the rebound game and now he’s shooting really well. And we have to respect that.”Suns coach admitted. “It’s something I have to be able to correct as a coach. We have to get the guys out of the three-point line, realize that Luca was 1/10, and instead of holding the bat in his face, maybe force him to shoot. We were looking for help to stop him getting into the paint, But there were sequences where he got confused by his dribbling and then saw him find the perfect pass for a 3-point shot.
Dorian Finney Smith and the Mavs now know they are expected to arrive in Arizona. Game 5 promises a great battle!
We know they will make adjustments. We have to take what we did really well in this game and step it up a bit, because it’s going to be more difficult there, as they play amazingly. Easy baskets, we have to take that away from them. There are no attempts to pass the ball or three-pointers in a transition period, forcing them to play against the half-court defense.”Dorian Finney Smith warned.
