Dallas Mavericks: 3 Matchups to Watch Vs. Nuggets
1.) Dwight Powell vs. Kenneth Faried
One matchup to watch on Monday will be the battle of the backup power forwards in Powell and Faried.
Both bring a jolt off the bench and give their team an ability to go small with them at the five if needed. But more importantly, they both bring above average athleticism to their second units.
Most would say that Faried is the better, more polished player, but Powell is not that far behind. Faried can rebound at a better rate than Powell, but Powell has a better outside shot than Faried.
On the season, Faried is averaging nine points and eight rebounds on 23 minutes of play while Powell is averaging seven points and five rebounds on 20 minutes of play.
This will be an energetic and fun matchup to watch on Monday.
