The Dallas Mavericks have enjoyed a solid Summer League stint. While they weren’t able to make the playoffs, they went 3-1 and have gotten a great feel for some of the young talent set to be on the roster next year.

In their latest contest on Friday night, the Mavericks took on the Indiana Pacers, earning their third win of Summer League by a score of 112-91.

It was a dominant win for the Mavericks, as they won three of the four quarters (and tied the third quarter 31-31). They were red-hot from the field and looked like the better team by far.

But before we get into the studs and duds of the contest, let’s go over a few honorable mentions who, unfortunately, won’t be able to make this list.

Honorable mention: Mavericks rookies

It’s official: The Mavericks’ rookies have graduated from the “Studs” list, as they are simply too good compared to the rest of the players on the team. Dallas’ 2023 rookie class is set to make an impact from the jump.

Against the Pacers, Olivier-Maxence Prosper put up 18 points, five rebounds, one assist, and one steal while shooting 7-of-12 from the floor.

Meanwhile, Dereck Lively II finished the game with nine points, eight rebounds, two assists, and one block while shooting 3-of-8 from the floor.

Both were extremely impactful on the defensive side of the ball and made it clear why the Mavericks selected them in the 2023 NBA Draft.

With all that in mind, let’s take a look at the studs and duds from the Mavericks’ dominant win over the Pacers.
