Dallas Mavericks star Kristaps Porzingis finally looks fully healthy, but will he or Luka Doncic be the team’s leading scorer going forward?

The Dallas Mavericks have 40 wins this season. It has been an incredible turnaround for the young squad. Dallas won 33 games total in the 2018-2019 season. The Mavs are virtually locked into a playoff spot too even if all 82 regular season games are played at some point.

Right now, all they can do is wait. The NBA suspended its season on March 11 in response to the novel coronavirus. As we enter the third week, there is no firm timetable on what is going to happen. Will live action resume? If so, when? How many games will be played? The league appears committed to crowning a champion this year, but other than that everything is fluid.

KP looks healthy

Today, let us take a look at who will lead the Dallas Mavericks in scoring when play resumes. The team has two candidates. Both are All-Stars and exceptional young talents. Luka Doncic is the engine of their historically great offense. He runs the show. Doncic is currently in the lead averaging 28.7 points per game.

Coming up on the outside is Kristaps Porzingis. He is scoring 19.2 points a night on the season, but fans have seen a different KP recently. The 24-year-old finally looks healthy and back to full strength after missing 20 months of action with a torn ACL.

Here is a case for each man plus the final verdict on which player leads the Dallas Mavericks in scoring going forward.
