Jason Kidd On 3-0 Series Deficit: 'None of You Guys Had Us Here'

The Mavericks weren’t expected to remain in this position. To be in the Western Conference Finals after exploding their group at the trade due date speaks volumes of the super star play and development of Luka Doncic, their locker space management, and the development of Kidd as a coach considering that he worked as an assistant coach under Frank Vogel after head training stints in Brooklyn and Milwaukee.

Now that they’re looking down a 3-0 series deficit after losing Sunday’s Game 3 to the Warriors, 109-100, Coach Jason Kidd chosen to keep the Mavs’ unanticipated ascension to the Western Conference Finals in point of view throughout his postgame presser.

“This is just the beginning of this journey,” Kidd informed press reporters postgame. “I know you guys have us winning the championship before the season started. And that’s a joke if you didn’t get it. This is a lot bigger than just this one game or this series. This is huge for our franchise because none of you guys had us here.”

He likewise credited their loss to getting outrebounded and not having the ability to strike enough of their three-point efforts. For the night, Golden State rebounded Dallas 47-33, with Kevon Looney leading the Warriors with 12 boars, followed by 11 from Andrew Wiggins (27 points). Doncic (40 points) led the Mavericks with 11 rebounds, however no other Maverick confined more than 5 boards.

Heading into a do-or-die Game 4, the Mavs will need to kick up their physicality inside in order to win the rebounding fight. They will likewise require their snipers like  Reggie Bullock and Maxi Kleber to not go 0-12 from the three-point line. The choice to assault the boards and develop second-chance pails will be critical when they’re not striking shots and the Mavs will require all the additional ownership they can get to extend the series.

“I’ve said we’re going to live and die by the three, but we’re also dying by not getting rebounds,” Kidd stated, per Callie Caplan of the Dallas Morning News.

Game 4 of the WCF will be on Tuesday with the Mavs intending to prevent the sweep. No group in NBA history has actually returned from a 3-0 deficit.
