Three Mavs to Watch vs Toronto in Las Vegas
After winning in convincing fashion during their first game in Vegas, the Mavs set their sights on Toronto for Monday night’s matchup.
Headlined by draft picks A.J. Hammons and Justin Anderson, Dallas sent a squad to Las Vegas full of names known around the basketball landscape. From Mr. Triple Double in college basketball to a four-year starter at Kansas, the Mavericks have a roster that are all competing for roster spots.
On Saturday night, Dallas took on a Miami Heat team that was without Josh Richardson and Justise Winslow where they won in convincing fashion by 19 points. On Monday night, they won’t get as lucky as they face a Toronto team with some quality young talent.
After winning by 39 points in their first game, Toronto edged out a Kris Dunn-led Minnesota team on Sunday night to improve to 2-0 in Vegas. Led by Norm Powell, Jakob Poeltl, and Delon Wright, the Raptors have a squad that should push Dallas to the limits.
With Justin Anderson clearly being the Mavericks best overall talent, some other names could be worth watching on Monday night as Dallas looks to find camp invite worthy players for the fall.
