Nowitzki Says Mayo Lacking Confidence
Bad got worse for O.J. Mayo.
Mayo, who has been the Mavericks’ best player most of the season, had his worst performance in a Dallas uniform during the overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Dirk Nowitzkihad plenty to say about the man who had been filling his shoes as the Mavs’ go-to guy until recently.
“Juice gotta go back to playing the way he was when I was out,” Nowitzki said. “I don’t know what’s been going on lately. It looks like he doesn’t have the confidence.
“But we depend on him. He’s got the ability. He showed it early in the year. He’s gotta make plays for us down the stretch as long as I’m not all the way there.”
