I don't think the front office will do these things, but it's time to realize it's the end. Monta isn't good enough (or young enough) to build around
I think that's an overreaction to the first 2 games of the series. Houston did what they were supposed to do and held serve on their homecourt. Let's see how Dallas responds this weekend.
It's important to note that we hold Bird Rights for Rondo and Tyson and Early Bird Rights for Monta, meaning we can go over the cap to re-sign them in the offseason. If Dallas decides to blow it up, we won't have the cap space to sign starter quality talent at the 1, 2, and 5 spots. Bird Rights gives us that flexibility. Also, no one is going to trade for Parsons because of his high salary and 15% trade kicker. Ideally, we sign a 3-and-D type player, and bring Monta off the bench.
Dallas took a lead early in the 4th before Houston made that huge run. The 4/5 PNR hurts because Dirk flashes too hard. I'd like to see more Aminu at the 4 to negate some of that. Normally, Dirk's offense balances out his defensive deficiencies but with a poor shooting performance like last night, it's hard to win (especially with Parsons and Harris out). I expect Rick to make the right adjustments going into Game 3.
