Dallas Mavericks: 5 takeaways from scrimmage win over Sixers
Dallas Mavericks takeaway from scrimmage vs. Sixers: 2. 3-point struggles
Fans know the Mavs love to shoot threes. They are second in the NBA attempting 41.5 long-range field goals per game. The Mavericks connected on 36.9 percent before play was suspended in March. It is a massive key to their success this season.
They struggled mightily from downtown on Tuesday. The Mavs finished 12 of 41 from 3-point range. The starters were worse hitting just seven of 25 while on the floor.
The only one causing a slight worry is Luka Doncic. The rest of the Mavericks starting five has shot well over the three scrimmage games combined. The 21-year-old superstar is three of 12 in Orlando. Do not push the alarm just yet, but it is something to keep an eye on as the seeding games play out from the bubble.
Seth Curry and Tim Hardaway Jr. need to be hitting from downtown. Their ability to space the floor makes the Mavericks offense incredibly dangerous. THJ is six of 16 during the scrimmages, and Curry hit nine out of 15. Fans should be excited because they both look ready to keep the floor wide open for the Dallas Mavericks in the season’s restart.
