Not getting rewarded

Opponents have taken more free throws than the Mavs in three of the last four games. All three were losses. Jerry Stackhouse doesn’t feel the trend is a result of a lack of aggression.

“We feel we’re attacking and getting bumped and not getting the benefit of the doubt,” he said. “The bonus is huge. When you’re able to be aggressive and just get bumped and go to the free throw line, as opposed to a side out, that’s a chance to put points on the board.”

The Mavs are 34-11 when they shoot the same or more free throws this season. They’re 11-16 otherwise.
