On Wednesday the Mavs took home a win of 74 to 73 against the Memphis Grizzlies but this success did not come easy. There was only 10 minutes left in the game and forward Quincy Pondexter made his way past Lamar Odom with ease. Making the game a one point difference game. This infuriated his teammates.
“Look, it was a bad play,” Carlisle said. “Lamar was there and he needed to put a body on him and didn’t do it and so Pondexter gets a three-point play.”
Lamar was placed on the bench while his teammates worked together to win the game. everyone decided to step up to the plate.
“I’m about winning. That’s the way it is,” Odom said. “This a deep team. Right now it’s about finding a way to help the team and just win games.” Lamar being benched was the best way he could have helped the team because his presence clearly wasn’t felt on the court.
