The Mavericks utter lack of rim protection is gonna cost them this series. They've got a lot of shooters and good perimeter defense but literally nothing in rim protection or rebounding for that matter.

If Gobert hits the market this offseason, if I'm Dallas I'm going in hard to try and get him. Pair him with their perimeter defense vs those traffic cones he plays with in Utah, that could elevate the Mavs from tough matchup to actual contenders.
