Because whenever the other team scores a couple baskets we get impatient and hurry our shots, don't block out and they end up scoring.

Dallas stopped playing defense when they got the lead up to 20 that is why they lost.
Dirk had around 6 different good looks in the last 2 minutes of play and he missed every shot.

That discusting display was some of the worst defense all season.

Yes, Denver was hot but most players in this league can hit wide
open 12-18 ft jumpers without any pressure what so ever.

We gave them open shot after open shot. Aside from some
tough shots Andre Miller hit in the 3rd quarter the rest of the
shots that Denver made were layups, dunks or wide open
jumpers. It was sickening to watch.

At the same time we stopped pushing the ball up the court. I
disagree with Zach who said we go impatient and shot too
quickly. I think the reverse is true. We try to use some clock
and end up taking tougher shots than if you push the ball and
take the best shot you can find regardless of what the shot
clock is.

To me that is like the prevent defense in football. It rarely works.
You build a 20 pt lead by pushing the ball and putting pressure
on the defense then all of a sudden you slow it down and play
right into the defense's hands. How many freaking times do we
have to blow a lead by doing this before we pull our heads out of
our butts.

The "prevent defense" actually prevents the team using it of a victory! :yes:
