The Dallas Mavericks are coming off a 133-111 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night, snapping their seven-game winning streak.

Dallas' comeback ended up falling short, and their careless turnovers contributed to the loss on the road. Mavs guard Tim Hardaway Jr. also struggled tremendously, as he was taking bad shots and stalling Dallas' offense.

Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving did their part as they combined for 62 points, but it wasn't enough to take down the Pacers.

ESPN Analyst makes embarrassingly bad take about Mavericks star Kyrie Irving

Irving took his game to the next level in the fourth quarter, and it looked like he was going to will the Mavs all the way back into the game as they trailed by just four at one point. Irving was putting on a show like he always seems to do in the fourth quarter, but it was not enough.

Irving has been phenomenal for Dallas since returning from injury, and if he can stay healthy, this Mavs team is deadly. They are a completely different team when he is on the floor, and he and Luka form one of the best duos in the NBA.

Irving's three-level scoring is out of this world, and his finishing ability when getting downhill is hard to stop. He also likes to work out of the post, often joking that he is actually a power forward. Irving has a great fadeaway jumper and hits shots while leaning with ease.

Despite being a good scorer out of the post for years, an ESPN Analyst recently made an awful take about Irving. On First Take on Monday morning, Shannon Sharpe said, "Kyrie is six-foot tall, he ain't posting up nobody," and said that Irving didn't have a post game when Kendrick Perkins asked him.

This is an embarrassingly bad take by Sharpe, as he is disregarding the fact that Irving is one of the best guards out of the post in the NBA. Sharpe's take shows that he hasn't watched much Mavs basketball this year, which has been typical for many of the national analysts from ESPN and other outlets this season.

The Mavs' next game is tomorrow night against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
