New Additions Produce for Mavericks

Luka Doncic is the main guy on the Dallas Mavericks roster, that much we know. The forward has averaged 27.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, 8.6 assists and 1.2 steals. However, he has long needed help and now he has support.

The Mavs dumped Kristaps Porzingis before the trade deadline and picked up Spencer Dinwiddie. The veteran guard has been huge in his role with the organization.

He has averaged 18.2 points and 4.2 assists in just 15 games with Dallas, seven of which he started. Dinwiddie has hit multiple big-time shots and takes so much pressure off of Doncic, allowing him to get much needed rest during games.

What’s even better here is that Doncic got the night off in the team’s latest outing. That means he should be fresh for this contest.

Timberwolves: Toughness, Youth

The Minnesota Timberwolves weren’t really expected to be a playoff team and yet here they are. After years of struggling to get a solid roster together, this group looks solid heading down the stretch.

Karl Anthony-Towns is the leader of the offense while young players like Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell are right alongside him. Head coach Chris Finch has put it all together.

Getting Patrick Beverley during the offseason was also a major pickup that not many people thought would be a big deal. Beverley provides a level of toughness that these young guys needed.

Losing to the Mavericks 110-108 on Monday must not be sitting well with this squad, so expect a strong showing from them to get their momentum back. If you bet online, this could be a big factor here.
