Storyline to follow: Defending Siakam

Pascal Siakam was the Most Improved Player last season, but he has taken it to another level. Spicy P is averaging 27.2 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 3.8 assists in a whopping 36.7 minutes per game.

It will be interesting to see how the Dallas Mavericks attempt to stop him. They could use Kristaps Porzingis on him or some combination of Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber. The Mavs have to keep Siakam held in check.

Next. How Luka Doncic stacks up against other MVP candidates

It will also be interesting to see if the Raptors counter with Spicy P on Luka Doncic. He will likely guard Porzingis in what should be a fun battle on Saturday evening. Mavericks fans should tune in and enjoy the show.
