Dallas Mavericks star Kristaps Porzingis is regaining his form after his 20 months off with an injury. Why that spells trouble for the rest of the NBA.

The Dallas Mavericks have won five straight games after Sunday’s dominating victory in Houston over the Rockets. They have done it with strong play on both ends of the floor. It has allowed them to build massive leads and secure comfortable victories. The Mavs average margin of victory is an impressive 23.8 points during the streak.

Luka Doncic is leading the charge and playing out of his mind right now. He is averaging a 30-point triple-double per game during the month of November. Doncic is the playmaker and primary ball-handler. The 20-year-old is taking a superstar turn in his second season. It has been incredible to witness his transformation since coming to the NBA.

The Mavs have received improved play from other players on their five-game winning streak too. Tim Hardaway Jr. is averaging 22.3 points per game as a starter on 66.7 percent shooting from the field. Dorian Finney-Smith is producing 11.8 points and playing lockdown defense. The bench is expanding leads while the starters rest.
