5 Predictions for the 2016-17 Dallas Mavericks
3.) The Dallas Mavericks Will Finish Top 5 in 3PA
The Golden State Warriors took the league by storm with their sharpshooting back court and small ball lineups. But what they punched the league in the mouth with was their three-point shooting.
Now, teams across the league are firing up three pointers at an astounding rate. Last year, the Mavericks finished 5th in the league in three-point attempts by attempting 2,342 shots from behind the arc.
To add to their push to shoot more three pointers, the Mavs went out this offseason with that agenda in mind. After adding Barnes, Curry, and even Quincy Acy, the Mavs literally have just a few players on the roster who can’t make an outside shot.
In almost every lineup Dallas will put on the floor, they will have at least four players who can hit the three at a high rate. They even have the flexibility to run Powell and Nowitzki at the five where all five players on the court can hit the outside shot.
With that being said, the Dallas Mavericks will once again finish top 5 in the NBA in three-point attempts.
