The Dallas Mavericks and the New Orleans Pelicans will square off on Wednesday night in a Western Conference game. Dallas has won two of their past three games. The Mavericks defeated the Utah Jazz on Tuesday, 120-116. New Orleans, on the other hand, has had a terrible stretch, losing six of its last seven games. On Monday, the Sacramento Kings defeated the Pelicans 123-108.
The Mavericks, who have a 5-5 record with the explosive point guard, haven’t had the easiest time since adding Kyrie Irving. But, when Irving is in the starting lineup, they are scoring the ball at a superior pace, averaging 123.2 points per game. From 112.5 without him playing, that is a significant rise.
In their last eight encounters, the Mavericks and Pelicans have not scored more than 230 points. Although the Mavericks are scoring the ball easily in their new look, this is a very high number to surpass. The Mavericks have a 2-8 record while playing back-to-back games this season, and they have only scored an average of 111.6 points. Moreover, they play at the second-slowest tempo.
While playing with Irving, Doncic’s assist totals have decreased, but his scoring, rebounding, and usage percentage have remained roughly the same. In the playoffs, when play slows down and teams play more in the half-court, this dynamic duo will be a problem. They are still ironing out some kinks till then.
