Curry cannot miss

Seth Curry has gone through a similar transformation as of late. In his last 12 games, Curry is averaging 19.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game. Porzingis and Curry are developing quite the chemistry in the pick-and-pop too.

Those numbers are impressive, but the efficiency on which he is doing it is where it becomes the next level. During that stretch, Curry is shooting 56.5 percent from the field and 55.7 percent from 3-point range.

Dallas needs as many playmakers as it can muster as teams will focus in even more on Luka Doncic in the playoffs. Curry might be the best bet on the team as someone who can not only create his own shot consistently but also can get others involved with his passing.

The 29-year-old guard might seriously be the best perimeter shooter in the league right now. It is starting to feel like he somehow converts a ridiculous four-point play every game too. His emergence as a scorer and playmaker for this team could take Dallas to another gear.

The Dallas Mavericks need it. They need to elevate themselves to another level as they jockey for seeding and eventually begin the playoffs as likely underdogs in the first round. The Western Conference playoffs are going to be absolutely stacked.

Next. Will the Mavs trade their pick on draft night?

Every single team will be dangerous. If Dallas truly wants to advance into the second round or further, they will need the Porzingis and Curry of the last two months, not the ones of the first few. Hopefully, both men can continue their scorching streaks.
