The Mavericks could use a P.J. Washington special in Game 4

The Mavericks need P.J. Washington to be at his best in Friday's elimination Game 4 against the Celtics. Washington has averaged 13.8 points and 6.9 rebounds, shooting on 43/35/71 splits in 20 games in the playoffs. He's the third-best player behind Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.

Washington has also been the third-best player in the finals for the Mavs, averaging 14.7 ppg and 7.7 rpg. However, his shooting has significantly dropped because the Celtics have forced him to take more shots from unfamiliar positions on the court. Washington has made 42.4% shots, including a measly 28.6% from 3.

He has thrived as a corner 3-point specialist, and with his baseline cuts, but with Jayson Tatum guarding the bigs, the Mavericks' pick-and-roll game has been limited. Washington has been a roller in these situations, with the opposition centers guarding him instead, which he's not as used to or efficient at.

Washington must find a way to be more efficient in the positions the Celtics have put him in offensively for Dallas to prevail. If he can take some attention off Doncic and Irving, the Mavericks could have a better chance to execute plays in the clutch.
