This is a young team with a rookie coach. While Dunlap has been impressive, let's not forget this is his first turn in the big chair as well. Like Keetch, I was highly curious as to why Mullens was in the game late considering his defensive lapses and what Biyombo could bring instead. I don't think Dunlap threw the game, but I do wonder why Mullens stayed in. I just didn't see the value in keeping him in that Dunlap did. I do think sticking with Mullens for so long down the stretch hindered the defense greatly.
This will be one of many learning experiences for this team and coach going forward. The hope now is that the lesson was learned by all.
