The Dallas Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd shared some of his thoughts on what contributed to the slow start for the second straight game against the Charlotte Hornets.
“When you look at the start of both games, we weren’t very good,” Kidd said. “Again talking about what happened, we looked at the video pre-game and we also talked about what we needed to do, and, unfortunately, we just didn’t do that in that first quarter, and also probably the first half.
“Just like last game, we talked about it at halftime and I thought the effort was extremely high on the defensive end. Offensively, all night, we got great looks and we didn’t put the ball in the basket – wide open 3s, some missed layups that we normally make, but that’s part of the game. I thought the energy level was extremely high in the second half.”
