Why Dallas Mavericks star Kristaps Porzingis should make All-Seeding Games Team: 1. Unique stat line
Porzingis not only put up massive numbers, but they were stats that no other player can match. He joined Giannis Antetokounmpo and teammate Luka Doncic as the only men in the top ten in points and rebounds per game from Orlando. KP was also tied for 12th in blocks and fourth in free throws made each night.
He has played like an All-Star so far. That is a phrase Mavs fans love to hear. Luka Doncic took the superstar leap this season. Having Porzingis back averaging 25 a night and protecting the rim gives the Mavericks one of the best duos in the NBA. Both players are young and improving too.
Doncic and Porzingis should both make the All-Seeding Games Team. They are the only teammates to average north of 30 points a night. Luka lost his triple-double per game when the Mavs limited him to 13 minutes in their final contest. He still finished in the top ten in points, rebounds, and assists per.
Next up will be the first NBA playoff experience for the Mavericks’ two young stars. They face off against the LA Clippers in the first round. That is no easy matchup. Fans will get to see just what Kristaps Porzingis and Luka Doncic can do when it matters most, so stay tuned.
