The Dallas Mavericks shouldn’t sound off the alarms just yet.

They weren’t at their best in Game 1, and Joe Mazzulla seemingly out-coached Jason Kidd on both ends of the floor.

Still, they have the personnel to make the necessary adjustments to give them different looks in Game 2.

Also, more than that, they might not need to shake that many things off to get back in this series.

At least, that’s how former NBA player Rick Mahorn feels about it.

Talking to SiriusXM NBA Radio, the retired player claimed that the Mavs just needed to make some shots, and that was it.

Nonetheless, he also thinks that the fact that the Boston Celtics have been to this stage in the past could also shift the scale in their favor.

He believes the Celtics have been battle-tested, which is a factor that cannot be overlooked.

Mahorn thinks that Kyrie Irving needs to lead by example and step up as a proven veteran, adding that he’s also been there and done that in the past.

The Mavericks need to do a better job of keeping everybody involved, as they had just eight assists in Game 1, with two of those coming when the game was already out of reach.

Irving and Luka Doncic are obviously unique offensive talents, and they could both single-handedly win a game or two.

Even so, this is a team sport first and foremost, and with the Celtics’ plethora of shot-makers, even two future Hall of Famers will need a hand or two.
