He is really fighting it. He becomes unplayable if he isn't making shots.
I love his competitiveness, but if his offense isn’t there his rotation minutes need to go to Hauser. Gives us better size and we have enough ball handlers that Pritchard should never be the primary creator.

Smallest but most fun plus-minus sample ever. If PP had not played at the end, he would have had a positive .75 plus- minus per second.

Remember when Taco had a -3 +/- in one second of playing time in that Miami game? I can laugh about it now.

I watched the kid shoot about 10 of these in warmup tonight. It was a lock that that shot was going in.

It's pretty amazing that he is out of the gameplan tonight except for final secends he goes in, everyone in the stadium knows what is coming (except for maybe the Mavs), and Pritchard himself knows exactly what shot he wants to take and when. And he nails it.

This account seems legit and says it’s not a travel. Good enough for me. But seriously the travel/gather rules are kind of confusing and slow motion makes it look worse. I don’t think it was a travel.

If that’s not a travel, I will never understand the travel rules. And if that same move is made for a normal 3 pointer, I would bet refs would call a travel, even if somehow the rule says it’s not.

I definitely wasn’t thinking travel when I saw it live but slowed down, it does look like one to me.

Either way, sweet shot!

Luka missed the FT so the Mavs never really got set on full court defense.

I didn't notice Joe until right now. He starts walking toward the locker room as Pritchard dribbles upcourt, watches the shot going in, puts his head down and continues to the locker room without breaking stride as the whole bench runs past him out to the court. Very Belichick.

The Harden/Tatum three step sidestep/step back three point shot is essentially the same thing as what Pritchard did, but it’s in a different direction. And that’s never, ever a travel anymore, at any level.

Well, it should be in my mind but that’s a different discussion.

Pritchard is Bellhorn.
I think Hauser was Bellhorn. Had a really bad ECF, but coach stuck with him and returned to form for a great finals.

Until his second hand touches the ball, he can take as many steps as he wants. Once his second hand touches the ball, it's two steps and a pivot.

I think Luka fouled him, though!
