The Dallas Mavericks are finally healthy and beginning to hit their stride. Luka Doncic is on fire. The team’s offense is becoming elite as the rotation is settling in.
The Mavs transferred three rookies to the G League bubble to get more playing time with everyone healthy. The Texas Legends opted out of the season, so the organization had to find homes for their players. Nate Hinton is on the Santa Cruz Warriors. Tyrell Terry and the Memphis Hustle faced teammate Tyler Bey and the Salt Lake City Stars on Feb. 15.
Let us take a closer look at the performances from the Mavs rookies and what it means moving forward.
Tyrell Terry outduels Tyler Bey in G League as both Dallas Mavericks rookies shine
The Memphis Hustle dominated the second half to beat the Stars on Monday afternoon. Terry earned the start and played 36 minutes. He had 17 points, 11 rebounds, and four assists as the Hustle outscored Salt Lake City by 12 during his time on the floor.
Bey also shined. He had 22 points and seven rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench. The Stars were plus-five with Bey on the floor on Monday. It was the second straight outstanding game from the Mavericks rookie.
Former Maverick Yogi Ferrell also played for the Stars. He produced 11 points and three steals in his 24 minutes against the Hustle.
Tyrell Terry was one of the best shooters in the NCAA last season. He drew comparisons to Seth Curry during draft season. Terry has played well in the G League, but he needs time to develop before becoming an NBA role player.
Tyler Bey provides strong defense and rebounding. He made his only 3-point attempt on Monday afternoon. The Mavs are hoping to transform him into a 3-and-D wing. Keep an eye on his development.
The best is yet to come from the 2020-2021 Dallas Mavericks. Fans will not want to miss it, so stay tuned.
