Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic has arguably been the MVP of EuroBasket 2022 so far. He had a signature 47-point performance in a win over France to secure Group B, and Doncic willed Slovenia into the quarterfinals with a 35-point night against Belgium. Number 77 has been unstoppable, and the best is likely yet to come from the 23-year-old superstar.

EuroBasket 2022 has been filled with surprises, including Slovenia losing to Bosnia and Herzegovina in the group stage. The biggest upset of the tournament came from Italy in the round of 16 as they knocked out two-time reigning NBA MVP Nikola Jokic and Serbia. There has been plenty of drama already, and the field is wide open entering the quarterfinals.

Who will win EuroBasket 2022? Any of the remaining eight teams could take home the crown, which is one reason why fans should not miss a game from here on out. Here is a closer look at each of the quarterfinals, and why Dallas Mavericks supporters should tune in.

Why Dallas Mavericks fans should watch Greece vs. Germany in EuroBasket 2022 quarterfinals

Every MFFL will be watching Luka, but this is another cannot miss game for fans. Mavericks two-way signee Tyler Dorsey starts for Greece on the wing, and he is a key scorer on their undefeated squad. Dorsey's shooting could help him get on the court for Mavericks, but his defense is a question mark. He has not played in the NBA since 2019, so fans can get an updated scouting report on Tuesday.

Dirk Nowitzki’s country is led by Dennis Schroder, who is a candidate for the Mavs final roster spot. The Mavericks brass watched him up close, and he will need to control the game if the hosts are going to top Giannis Antetokounmpo and Greece.

Germany versus Greece will be a heavyweight showdown with the winner taking over as the favorite to advance to the finals. Dallas Mavericks fans won’t want to miss Tyler Dorsey and potential Mav Dennis Schroder as they battle in the EuroBasket 2022 quarterfinals.
