Will the Dallas Mavericks improve when Luka Doncic is in the game?

The Mavs are going to be better with Luka in the game. The 22-year-old superstar is too skilled and can change any game. He has not played his best so far this season, but he will find his rhythm.

The Dallas Mavericks have outscored the opposition by 203 points in his 7,005 career minutes over 210 games, which includes his poor first 11 contests this season. That is a massive sample that suggests the Mavs are going to outscore the opposition with Doncic in the game. It has been a slow start, but 11 games are not enough evidence to suggest anything that is the new norm.

The shot will start falling for Luka and his teammates. Fans should be watching the starting five. Does head coach Jason Kidd make a change? Can he figure out a way to get more out of the current group? Those are questions worth asking and something the Mavericks are exploring. Fans just have to wait to see what they come up with as answers.
