Spencer Dinwiddie is a proven shot-maker that makes Dallas Mavericks impossible to guard late
Dinwiddie has only played 12 games with the Mavs, but he has already made a gigantic impact on the court. The 28-year-old sank game-winners in two straight games, including becoming the seventh Maverick since 1997 to hit a buzzer-beater to seal the victory. Tim MacMahon tweeted perhaps a more important stat about Dinwiddie as Dallas heads into the playoffs.
The newest Mavericks guard is a proven shot-maker that has no fear of taking the most important shot. Dinwiddie is a career 32.1 percent 3-point shooter, so teams are likely to leave him open as they try to force the ball out of Luka Doncic’s hands late. It has resulted in two game-winners for Dinwiddie already, and there could be more to come.
Having another player on the floor that has no fear of knocking down the game-winner that can also create shots is a massive boost for the Dallas Mavericks late in games. Fans know defense will tighten in the postseason, and contests will go down to the wire. Having another player on the floor with experience hitting those clutch shots is massive.
Spencer Dinwiddie has been a fantastic addition for the Mavericks, and he takes his new team to another level. Can the Mavs win their first playoff series since 2011 this year? Stay tuned to find out.
