Dallas Mavericks player that will dictate playoff success: 1. Luka Doncic

The Mavs will go in the playoffs as Doncic goes. The 22-year-old superstar proved inside the bubble that he brings it when the games matter most. Fans will never forget his 43-point triple-double in Game 4 that was capped by the game-winning buzzer-beater, but his 42-point masterpiece in Game 1 and going for 38, nine, and nine in Game 6 to keep Dallas in it slide under the radar.

Every opponent will have the defense prepared to make someone else beat them. Luka does not care. He will get his. The 22-year-old has seen every defense and will find ways to exploit any of them.

Expect Dallas to run a plethora of pick and rolls in the postseason. They will try to get the opposition’s worst defender in the action. Expect a counter of double-teaming quickly, full-court pressing, and trying anything to get the ball out of Doncic’s hands.
