Dallas' next game is on Tuesday against the San Antonio Spurs, and after Sunday's win, they're in a good spot. The Mavs control their own destiny at this point of the season and fans should be excited about what this team is capable of once the NBA Playoffs roll around.

Dallas Mavericks final month stock watch: 5 risers, 5 fallers

Almost everyone is healthy, and the Mavs are in a position to make a playoff run if they can continue to play at a high level.

While the Mavs as a team are playing great, there are always players whose stocks are rising and falling.

Here are five Dallas Mavericks whose stocks are falling and five whose stocks are rising as the NBA season ends in less than a month.

10. Rising: Kyrie Irving

After a slow start to the month of March, Dallas Mavericks star guard Kyrie Irving put on a show against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night. Irving finished with 36 points and 12 assists and was a big reason that the Mavs were close to knocking off the Thunder on the road.

Irving was getting to his spots, facilitating at an elite level, and keeping the Mavericks in this game. He started off hot and aggressive, and the Mavs are at their best when he plays assertively in the first quarter.

This is a hard tightrope to walk, especially considering that Luka Doncic likes to get rolling in the first quarter, but finding a way to get Doncic and Irving going early would be great for Dallas.

Irving continues to prove that he can take the game over at any time, and consistency from him could be exactly what they need. Everyone knows what Doncic is going to do on a nightly basis, but if Irving can also be this dominant consistently, the Mavs could surprise some people in the playoffs.
