Dallas Mavericks are the most underrated team in Orlando
By Tyler Watts
Why Dallas Mavericks are underrated: 1. Star duo
The Mavs also have Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis kicking off their starting five. Their duo can matchup against anyone in the league. Dallas has one distinct advantage here too. Both Mavericks are under 25 years old.
Porzingis was just getting comfortable playing off Luka when play was suspended back in March. His adjustment to the Mavericks free-flowing offense that called for more threes from the Unicorn than ever before took some time getting used to, plus KP was still knocking off the rust from the long layoff.
Both Doncic and Porzingis should be at their best during NBA Disney. The hiatus gave them a chance to get healthy. Each man improves rapidly at this point. KP gets to be Luka’s primary pick and roll partner too. That means a more active Porzingis in the offense, which gives Dallas plenty of new wrinkles to exploit at Disney World. Read more on why KP will be unstoppable here.
The Dallas Mavericks could have the best duo in the NBA after Orlando. Both men are getting their first crack in the playoffs. A deep run should have Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis mentioned among the elite every time. History is on the Mavs side. It will be fascinating to see if they can make it happen during NBA Disney. Stay tuned.
