Luka Magic in Minnesota

Recap of the Dallas Mavericks 119-115 win in Minnesota against the Timberwolves Friday night.

What a great way to start out the second half of the 2018-2019 NBA season.  Coming into this game with a record of 19-22 through the first 41 games of the season, the Mavs are not where they want to be, tied for 13th in the West.  Luka Dončić and company have shown promise of being a playoff team over their first 41 games, proving that they can compete with the best in the league, but turnovers and inconsistency have led to the sub .500 record.

Mavs Playoff Watch: Week 11 (12/26-1/1)

Week 11 standings, game recaps, Western Conference power rankings, and team stats summary.

To start the new year the Mavericks remain under .500 at 17-19.  They are 4 games back of the Southwest Division lead, 3 games back from the 8th seed in the West, and 7.5 games back from the 1st place team in the West.

This week went just about as you could have predicted for the Dallas Mavericks.  They won all of their home games, moving to 15-3 at home, and lost all of their road games, now 2-16 outside of Dallas.  That is just a ridiculous split that has to give at some point, hopefully in the form of more road wins as they head to the east coast this week for a trio of games.

Where’s Brunson?

Should Jalen Brunson be in the Mavericks Rotation?

Dallas Mavericks rookie point guard Jalen Brunson filled in admirably during the absence of J.J. Barea and Dennis Smith Jr., but with the Mavericks back court healthy again, he finds himself out of Head Coach Rick Carlisle’s rotation.

Brunson started eight games in December with Smith nursing a sprained right wrist. He has since received a DNP-Coaches Decision in three of the Mavericks last four games, including the final game before Smith’s return.
