Dallas Mavericks: 5 reasons why they can win the championship in Orlando
The Dallas Mavericks will be heading to Disney World in July for the NBA’s restart. Luka Doncic will be leading the way for Dallas. 22 teams are taking part. The unprecedented circumstances could cause some unexpected results.
The Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, and LA Clippers enter as the title favorites. They all feature at least one superstar, a veteran roster, and a track record of winning.
Kawhi Leonard will be looking to lead his team to the championship for the second straight year. LeBron James is searching for his fourth ring, but first with the Lakers. Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo wants to have his coming out party in the playoffs. The one that transforms a player from superstar to legend.
Those three teams will not get the usual home-court advantage because every game will be played in Orlando with no fans in attendance. That could be the first of many things that helps level the field.
The race for the championship is wide open this season. No team features four superstars like the Golden State Warriors have in recent years. There are a lot of teams that could get hot and take home the title.
One of the more surprising teams would be the Mavericks, but they have the third-best point differential in the Western Conference and sixth in the NBA. The Mavs are just 0.4 points away from finishing behind only the Bucks and Lakers. Dallas does not get mentioned with the NBA’s elite, but they played at that level through the 67 games before the suspension.
