It’s a Dallas disaster. Luka Doncic and co. have lost another game yet again, this time at the hands of the Bam Adebayo-less Miami Heat. It dropped the Dallas Mavericks to 37-41 on the season, which means the team can no longer go above .500 this 2022-23 after a year when they won 52 games and made it all the way to the Western Conference Finals.
Doncic stepped up big time for the Mavs during the Saturday showdown in a bid to keep their Play-In hopes alive. However, his 42-10-8 stat line was not enough to save a Dallas squad that has plenty of holes defensively. Even Tim Hardaway Jr.’s 31 points and Kyrie Irving’s 23 did little to help the team compete against the Heat.
Now, Dallas will need to win their remaining four games in order to have a shot at the Play-In. They will also have to hope that the Oklahoma City Thunder fumble their remaining games just so they get to live another day after the regular season.
But considering how they are playing since the All-Star break, it’s certainly a tall order.
With that said, all the team’s haters made sure to pile more misery on Luka Doncic and the Mavs as they get closer to totally missing the playoffs. Several Dallas fans also showed the frustration over what’s happening to the team, with many also questioning the competence of the front office.
Here are some of the biggest reactions to Dallas’ recent disaster:
The Mavs really paid
$6M/year to McGee
and extended Maxi with
to be a cheerleader.
That is nearly $19M
But wouldn't give Brunson more than
to keep him a Mav. Our FO.

The season is not yet over for the Mavs, but a couple more losses and it will be. It’s a bad day indeed for the Big D.
