The Mavericks head into a stretch where they can make some ground and move up the standing in the Western Conference with 20 games left in the season. Dallas next 5 games include Philadelphia 76ers, Memphis Grizzlies, New York Knicks, Sacramento Kings and Detroit Pistons.

5 things that stand out in the last 10 games:

  • Defeated Jazz and Bucks at home demonstrating probably their two best games of the season.
  • Mavs are 6-4 in those games. 5th seed Lakers are 5-5, 6th seed Trail Blazers are 6-4.
  • Porziņģis played both games in back-to-back on the road at Rockets and in Dallas against Bucks, also averaging 23.4 PPG (48 FG%), 12.4 RPG, 2.3 APG, 1.7 BPG.
  • Losing to sub .500 teams is a concern with lack of focus beating teams they should have defeated: Pelicans, Pacers, Rockets, Spurs.
  • Finney-Smith is averaging 46.4% from the three point line.
