NBA Handicapping: Carlisle pleads for better defense from Mavericks

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Dallas at Oklahoma City -6 O/U 196

Dallas head coach Rick Carlisle asking for a much better effort on defense after allowing 105 to Miami and 115 to Denver.


"It'll be the major theme every day going forward," coach Rick Carlisle said. "When you defend well, your offense is always going to be better, and when you run offense well, your defense will be better."

"Right now we've got to start the game with five guys in a stance and get after it defensively," Carlisle said. "And look, what I told the guys is, 'Hey, you've got to play to exhaustion and then we'll get somebody else in there.' We've got to establish a tone defensively. Any other stuff about rotation and who's playing is insignificant to the major theme, which is hard play and tough defense."
