Dallas Mavericks star Kristaps Porzingis throws down a jam that will have you pumped for NBA Orlando

Dallas Mavericks fans still may not have seen the best version of Kristaps Porzingis. That might be difficult to believe. Porzingis was an All-Star in 2018. It seems like he has been around the league for a bit. KP is only 24 years old and still improving.

For proof, look no further than his last stretch. Over his final 15 games before the suspension, Porzingis averaged 25.2 points, 10.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 2.3 blocks in 33.7 minutes per. He shot 46.5 percent from the field and 36.4 percent on his 3-point tries. The Unicorn may be a better long-distance shooter than that number suggests too.

Here is a look at why Porzingis will be unstoppable during NBA Orlando.

Organic growth is one of the keys to the Dallas Mavericks taking the leap into title contention. Having two young stars that are still improving should have supporters feeling good about the odds. Other teams are scared to find out what the best versions of Luka Doncic and Porzingis happen to be, but they will know soon enough.

A Kristaps Porzingis dunk that will have Dallas Mavericks pumped for Orlando

Fans are excited about the NBA’s restart. The Mavs are virtually guaranteed a playoff spot. They will be looking to make some noise in Orlando. To get fans amped, NBA Mexico posted a video of Kristaps Porzingis throwing down a monster dunk that everyone should see again.

Hopefully, we get to see more of that during NBA Disney. Porzingis started attacking the rim after Dwight Powell’s injury. His improved confidence plus the shift to playing more center allowed him additional chances to get inside. Porzingis can certainly throw one down.

Expect fireworks from the Mavericks in Orlando. They want to move up during the seeding games and make a playoff run. Both things are possible. A healthy Kristaps Porzingis will go a long way in achieving those goals. Expect KP to be ready, so stay tuned.
