After the loss against the New Orleans Pelicans, Dallas Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd criticized his star Luka Doncic because he complained too much with the referees during the game. 

"I would lean toward playing 5-on-5 a bit more," Kidd said when asked about Doncic's frequent discussions with the referees. "You're not going to get any calls. Officials, they tend to not stop the game to change calls. You have to understand there's a point in time in games, dead balls, to be able to talk to officials". 

"While the game is going on, transition defense is one of the things we've talked about that we have to get better", Kidd continued. "If we're lobbying for calls during live play, it puts us in harm's way. ... Just some things have got to be a little bit more important. I think we're going to get better at understanding as a team when to talk to officials. Not just Luka."

Doncic acknowledged the fact that his coach got a point: "He's got a point, I've got to stop doing that", Doncic said.
