The Dallas Mavericks are coming off a brutal week. They played five times in seven days with a depleted roster. The Mavs managed to win two games, thanks in part to some Luka Doncic heroics, but it was a rough stretch.

Things are not getting any easier. Four players remain out in the league’s health and safety protocols. The Mavericks face the Nuggets, Suns, and Jazz twice in the week ahead. Four games against teams expecting to make the playoffs without key rotation pieces will not be easy. Dallas is hoping for better health and some key victories over the next seven days.

The Mavs managed to put on a show, despite their struggles. Let us take a look at their top five plays from last week and a prediction about the week ahead.

Dallas Mavericks had the highlights on full display last week

Luka Doncic’s unbelievable playmaking was on full display. He dished out 55 dimes over the five games including some beautiful alley-oops to Kristaps Porzingis and the game-clincher to Jalen Brunson versus the Spurs. All were featured in the Mavericks’ top five plays of the week.

Things should only improve from here. Kristaps Porzingis is starting to flash his All-Star form. All four players in the health and safety protocols could return over the next 14 days. It will take some time, but the Mavericks could quickly transform into one of the league’s elite teams.

Expect plenty of highlight reel plays too. Luka Doncic is a walking triple-double that loves to put on a show. KP can make plays that other players only dream about accomplishing. The Mavs have multiple players that can throw down fierce dunks too. The best is yet to come from the Dallas Mavericks. Fans will not want to miss it, so please stay tuned.
