Dallas Hoops Fancast – Season 3, Episode 10
After a very disappointing loss to the New York Knicks, the Dallas Mavericks beat the Memphis Grizzlies in convincing fashion. Luka Doncic came close to another triple-double in less than 30 minutes of play. Even without Kristaps Porzingis, the Mavericks had no trouble defeating the young Grizzlies.
But, about that loss to the Knicks. It was bad. Kristaps had a big game against his former team and Luka backed him up with a spectacular game. But the Mavs’ role-players struggled to make a contribution.
After a win against the Denver Nuggets that showed off the Mavericks’ depth, the complete opposite happened against the Knicks.
In this episode, we discuss the Mavericks troubling defense, which is currently one of the worst in the league. Should something change with the minutes Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber get? We also talk about other lineup oddities, like Seth Curry, Tim Hardaway Jr., and Courtney Lee.
We then do a preview of the next four games on the Mavs’ schedule. With games against the Celtics, Knicks, Raptors, and Spurs, the Mavericks will need to stay focused and play up to their potential. What will their record be after this four-game stretch.
We finish up with a good 10 minutes of basically gushing over Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. Is Luka already an MVP candidate?
