The Dallas Mavericks are unlocking Kristaps Porzingis and bringing back the Unicorn. He has talked about his excitement playing for the new coaching staff and changes to his role since media day. Giving KP more freedom to attack has made him even more dangerous.

Porzingis has scored 20-plus points in seven straight and eight of the nine-game since returning from a back injury. He is posting up with increased success and spacing the floor for the Mavericks. The 7’3 big man has been more active on the defensive end as his rim protection has returned this season.

KP has no plans on stopping here. He and teammate Boban Marjanovic put in some work on the Thanksgiving holiday to improve their games, and here is a closer look.

KP and Bobi headed to the practice facility for a workout before enjoying the holiday, and the Unicorn snapped a few photos for his Instagram to celebrate the grind.

It should come as no surprise. Kristaps Porzingis put in a ton of work in the offseason to expand his game, and fans can see the results on the court. His lateral mobility has improved, and KP has been an unstoppable offensive force that plays better every night.

Fans know Boban is always putting in work. It is how he stays ready. Marjanovic is not part of the nightly rotation, but he always performs when his number gets called. That is a testament to the work Bobi does behind the scenes. He is always scrimmaging and doing extra conditioning to stay prepared whenever he is needed.

It was fantastic to see Kristaps Porzingis and Boban Marjanovic getting a workout in on Thanksgiving. The Dallas Mavericks want to jump into title contention this season, and the only way to make that a reality is to put in the work.
