Thing fans learned from the Dallas Mavericks debut of Kyrie Irving: 1. Elite offense

Luka Doncic is a walking bucket, and he always puts his team in a position to be an elite offense. The Mavs superstar draws a ton of attention, but the team has been searching for ways to upgrade their roster around him. More moves could come before Thursday’s trade deadline, but they won’t have much impact on the team’s offense.

If the Mavericks are the best offense in the league with Luka on the floor, they have reached scary territory with Kyrie. Irving proved he can run the offense in his first game with the team, and things will only improve from here.

There were a few extra turnovers and the offense slowed down a bit in Kyrie’s first game. Those things will improve with reps. The Mavs are now elite no matter who is on the floor. Kyrie Irving will keep things rolling without Luka Doncic as he did on Wednesday night in Los Angeles.

The Dallas Mavericks need to figure out their defense, and it will take time for them to fully mesh together. Getting Luka Doncic healthy and back on the floor is the top priority. After that, the offense should be one of the best in the league, and no team will be looking forward to facing the Mavs.

Next. 5 trades Mavs should make after Kyrie deal. dark

Stay tuned because the debut of the Luka and Kyrie backcourt could come as early as Friday in Sacramento against the Kings. Fans certainly won’t want to miss that.
