Dallas Mavericks: Why Kristaps Porzingis should make the All-Seeding Games Team
Dallas Mavericks star Kristaps Porzingis should be on the All-Seeding Games Team
The Dallas Mavericks dropped their final seeding game against the Phoenix Suns on Aug. 13. They won just three of the eight including multiple heartbreaking losses. Things did not go as planned for the Mavericks, but Kristaps Porzingis was one of the many silver linings.
The Unicorn arguably played the best basketball of his career in the Orlando bubble. He averaged 30.5 points, 9.5 rebounds. 2.2 assists, and 1.5 blocks in 36.1 minutes per over six games. He missed two contests. The Mavericks rested him on the first of a back-to-back against the Jazz. KP also sat out the final game with a heel injury.
Those are outstanding numbers, but how good was Porzingis? Did he do enough to make the All-Seeding Games Team? Let us take a closer look.

According to Shams Charania, the NBA plans on handing out a few awards based on the eight games each team played to kick off the season’s restart. There will be an MVP and an All-Seeding Games Team.
Kristaps Porzingis did not quite play well enough to win MVP. Damian Lillard and Devin Booker both made strong cases. The Suns went undefeated with Book averaging over 30 per game. Lillard willed the Blazers into the play-in round by averaging 37.6 points a night. Luka Doncic is the dark horse in the Bubble MVP race.
Kristaps Porzingis was one of the five best players in the restart thus far. He was also the top big man. Here are three reasons why he should make the All-Seeding Games Team.
