Dallas Mavericks back as NBA has a return plan

Commissioner Adam Silver and the league are bringing back 22 teams to play in Orlando later this summer. Each squad will play eight regular season games. There will also be a play-in for the eighth seed in each conference as long as the ninth seed is within four games. The return will then feature a traditional playoffs. There will be four rounds of seven-game series.

The plan is set, but it needs to pass a vote at the Board of Governor’s meeting on Thursday. That is expected to happen without incident.

This the ideal plan for the Dallas Mavericks in so many ways. It gives them eight regular season games to improve their standing in the Western Conference. Dallas is just four games behind the third-seeded Denver Nuggets. This plan also allows their youth to come into play. Fans can read more about why this is the perfect plan for Dallas here.

Supporters can also rejoice because the NBA will return in July. Some wondered if there would be a champion in 2020. Fear not now. One team will win a ring in Orlando this summer.

Expect the Mavericks to be ready. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis are both hungry for their first playoff experience. The Mavs could easily pull a few upsets and make a deep playoff run. Stay tuned to find out how it all shakes out.
