Spencer Dinwiddie can attack off the dribble and open the floor for the Dallas Mavericks
The Mavs had to rely on Luka Doncic to do all the ball-handling and playmaking in the 2021 postseason. He produced incredible numbers, but Doncic ran out of gas late in games from carrying such a heavy offensive burden.
Dinwiddie takes the Mavericks' offense to another level. He can attack off the dribble and has made over 37 percent of his catch and shoot threes from 2018 to 2020. Dinwiddie can get into the paint and has the size to finish at the rim. He can also play off the ball and knock down jumpers.
Can the 6’5 guard keep getting buckets in the playoffs? He averaged 14.6 points in 26.2 minutes per game for the Nets in the 2019 postseason. Dinwiddie has been so strong in his first 12 games with the Mavericks that it is hard to imagine him struggling when the contests matter most.
Spencer Dinwiddie is a fantastic fit because Luka Doncic draws so much attention. Number 77 will attract even more in the playoffs, and it will open the floor for Dinwiddie and Jalen Brunson to attack. Dinwiddie’s size and ability to get all the way to the rim should make him more effective in the postseason, and that alone could take the Dallas Mavericks to another level.
